Our sense of smell is more powerful than we think it to be and has great influence over our thoughts, emotions, moods, behavior, and memories. Olfaction – the sense of smell – varies greatly from other senses that the human body possesses. Scents that we inhale are processed through a completely different pathway; before they reach the brain, they travel through other regions of the brain – notable areas controlling memory and emotions. Essential oil molecules stimulate the limbic system of the brain or the “emotional brain.”Essential oils extracted from different parts of plants are extremely volatile in nature. This makes them easy to inhale and allows you to exploit the olfactory power of plants for healing, including the removal of toxins, oxygenating cells, and the opening of emotionally stored memory.
Aromatherapy is by no means a miracle cure for grave emotional issues, but countless studies suggest that they do help relieve particular emotional issues and emotional states. Careful and proper use of essential oils can go a long way in balancing your emotional health.
Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy that uses essential oils from plants and flowers. Designed to treat the whole body, aromatherapy aims to assist the body’s natural abilities to heal, rest and recover from stress and illness.
