Aromatherapy - How does it work?
100% pure genuine therapeutic grade essential oils are
known to induce profound effects on the brain, nervous
system and all the systems of the body. The ability of
essential oils to act on both the mind and the body is part
of the reason that makes them so versatile. They are also
very useful in your entire home environment for cleaning and
setting a wonderful atmosphere. Inhaling high quality
essential oils can help with weight management, relaxation,
tension relief, concentration, mental clarity, and much
Aromas or scents can evoke memories or emotions before we
are even consciously aware of them. This happens because the
olfactory system is directly linked to the limbic lobe of
the brain, which is the brain’s emotional control center.
Emotions such as worry, hopelessness, fear, resentment,
contentment, happiness, and delight are all developed in
this region of the brain. All other senses (touch, taste,
hearing, and sight) are routed through the thalamus which
sits above the limbic lobe.
Additionally, the limbic lobe can directly activate the
hypothalamus which controls body temp, hunger, thirst,
fatigue, and sleep. It acts as our hormonal control center
and releases hormones that can affect many functions of the
body (examples: production of growth hormones, sex hormones,
thyroid hormone, and neurotransmitters such as serotonin are
all governed by the hypothalamus). Essential oils are a
natural way to support your health and wellness!
