Aromatherapy for Compulsive Behaviour
Compulsive behaviour can be extremely destructive, but turning to aromatherapy to curb the impulses provides support as you battle the underlying unhappiness.
Compulsive behaviour is often caused by unhappiness, for which there may be a number of different causes but the result is the same. Eating disorders often arise from compulsive behaviour, either to punish yourself or others around you. Compulsive behaviour is a control mechanism as well as form of self punishment, and often must be addressed with therapy.
