Aroma Freedom Technique

“AFT is a revolutionary emotional health modality developed by Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Benjamin Perkus, Ph.D.

By using specially formulated Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils, I will guide you in clearing and transforming any fears, habits, and negative beliefs that hinder you from personal growth, so you can begin living from a place of freedom and personal power. Together, we’ll work to clear any:

This strategic process clears space for positive emotional energy to flow and is a powerful tool for identifying and releasing your subconscious barriers to success. Many of my clients remark, “What just happened? How did that happen? I feel like a weight has been lifted.” The AFT process echoes the words of the apostle Paul, “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).

After my own experience with AFT, a strong message came to me: “Emotional healing doesn’t have to be so complicated.” AFT offers an innovative, efficient method for emotional health.

Aroma Freedom uses the power of smell to activate the amgydala (or emotional brain) in bringing about memory reconsolidation and emotional freedom. Janell has strategically chosen these bundles for your use in her online course, Stronger Every Day: The Guide, and created other bundles targeted at specific areas of emotional and mental health journey.

AFT & Trauma Recovery

“As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage.”

The AFT framework consists of specific, highly strategic modalities: AFT Clearing, Aroma Reset, TMRT (The Memory Resolution Technique), Aroma Wisdom, and  Aroma Boost (Leadership Development).

If you’ve experienced trauma of any kind, TMRT offers remarkable hope and definitive help in emotional and psychological recovery. The simplicity of this revolutionary tool gently and wisely leads your heart to true freedom.

Essential Oils

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years and are the key to the revolutionary AFT process. Specially formulated Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Blends clear the path to transformation by clearing & dissolving negatively-charged memories & triggers that keep us from moving forward in life.

I use and wholeheartedly stand behind Young Living Essential Oils. They are the leader in the field of therapeutic grade oils, are on the forefront of wholistic measures of healing, and have consistently shown ethical business practices. Here’s how they work:


  • Our sense of smell (the olfactory nerve) connects directly to, and immediately triggers the limbic system in the brain (where primitive reactions like fight, flight, & freeze activate).
  • The limbic systems contains the Amygdala, which triggers our survival response, and resides directly next to the Hippocampus, which is the memory center of our brain (no wonder even thinking about a damaging memory can set us into panic mode).
  • Essential oils have been PROVEN to interrupt these emotional reactions, allowing us to reprogram any early emotional learning by breathing in the powerful essences of their scents.
