How does our sense of smell affect the way we feel?

Power of Aromatherapy
  • Smell is the fastest way to affect the mood. Aromatic molecules have direct access to the limbic area or emotional seat of brain.

 

  • Scent is processed through the olfactory bulb and limbic portion of the brain; when we inhale pure plant oil, powerful chemical reactions take place stimulating memories, emotions, and hormones. 

 

  • No two people will have the exact same reaction to each scent as 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!
