Aromatherapy is an integral part of living a good life. Without scent, what is there to live for, really?
What Is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy, also called Essential Oil Therapy is the holistic art and science of using naturally extracted botanicals and plant essential oils as treatment to promote health, harmony and well-being. It seeks to reduce stress, induce relaxation and restore balance to the mind, body and spirit.
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are within plants and give them their specific aroma and flavor. Plants produce essential oils in order to attract pollinating insects, to deter predators and to protect them from infection with their antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.
How Does Aromatherapy Work?
When you inhale an aroma, the molecules of the essential oil stimulate receptor cells at the top of your nasal cavity. These receptor cells send electrical messages to your brain. The Olfactory System is the only sensory system that is intimately connected to the amygdala and limbic system (the part of the brain that controls instinct and processes emotions and memories). This is why aromas have such a powerful effect on your mood and general state of mind. You may notice that when you smell something familiar, it often brings back memories or emotions associated with that specific aroma.
With topical application, essential oils and their healing components are absorbed into the bloodstream and can encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
