Aromas can positively affect our mood and performance. Did you know that aromatic plants, such as Lavender, have been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years? Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit.
Aromatherapy enhances both physical and emotional well-being
Experts believe aromatherapy activates smell receptors in your nose which send messages through your nervous system to your brain. The oils may activate certain areas of your brain which play a role in your emotions. Aromatherapy may also impact your hypothalamus, which responds to the oil by creating feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin.
Apart from providing a fragrant smell, aromatherapy oils provide respiratory, disinfection, decongestant, and psychological benefits. Aromatherapy oils are also known as essential oils. Simply inhaling essential oils can help clear sinus nasal passages. Essential oils also boost relaxation by helping you feel centered.
Ease stress and anxiety
Essential oils can have a subtle, yet holistic effect on the body. Aromatherapy can affect the limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, blood pressure, memory, breathing, stress, and hormone balance. Aromatherapy also engages the olfactory system which passes through parts of the body. This activates serotonin in the brain and produces the relaxing, soothing effect that alleviates stress.
