Benefits of Aromatherapy

In order to understand how you can benefit from aromatherpay you first should know how it actually works. Aromatherapy has been used as a healing art for thousands of year and by now we actually know how they work interacting with our body and mind. Humans are able to differenciate between 10,000s of smells.

When we inhale a smell. the scent travels through the olfactory nerves in our noses to the part of our brain that is called the lymbic system. This brain region supports a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, long term memory, and olfaction. When stimulated, for example by smells, the limbic system activates the pleasure center in the brain and also can lead to sexual arousal. In short, smells have the power of influencing your mood, your emotions and even your sex drive. However, these are not the only positive effects of aromatherapy and a diffuser or nebulizer can make essential oils even more efficient.

Essential oils are not to be confused with fragance oils, which often contain chemicals. Essential oils are much more powerful and should never be applied to the skin in an undiluted form.
