Why Essential Oils?
Essential oils have been used for cooking, bathing, skin care and religious ceremonies since ancient times. The term “aromatherapy” was coined in the 20th century when scientists began to support the idea of using essential oils for mood and health, and in the 1990’s, research helped biologists understand how our brain reacts to scent.
Scent is processed through the olfactory bulb and limbic portion of the brain; when we inhale pure plant oil, free from synthetics and fillers, powerful chemical reactions take place stimulating memories, emotions, and hormones. No two people will have the exact same reaction to a scent since our genetics, memories, and life experiences influence our interpretation of the essence.
The beauty of aromatherapy is that it allows us to create our own unique emotional responses. Essential oils are more than a lovely scent, they can have a direct impact on our emotions and our overall well-being!
