We can smell happiness….

Did you know that we can smell happiness?

Yup!  We respond in an involuntary way to smell, this is due to the wiring of the olfactory pathway.  The olfactory nerves go first to a primitive region of the brain called the limbic system.  The limbic system is a collection of brain structures situated beneath the cerebral cortex that deal with emotion motivation, and association of emotions with memory.  Only after this relay has occurred does the information arrive in the higher cortical brain regions for perceptions and interpretation. Smell is unique among the senses in its privilege access to the subconscious.  This response can trigger strong memories, mind and/or body reactions.   The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function.  Allowing it to be absorbed through the skin, the oil travels through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing from the inside out.

So what is Aromatherapy?:

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.

Using essential oils is a form of alternative medicine that is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.

Common aromatherapy benefits that you can utilize at home:

  • Peppermint and Eucalyptus are mentally stimulating.  They can help you to maintain a clear focus.
  • Lavender and Chamomile have the opposite effect. If you’re feeling stressed or anxious, these two refreshing scents will help you relax
  • Need help with weight loss? There are some studies that suggest the scent of vanilla can help reduce the cravings for sweets
  • Are you feeling tired or lethargic? Try lemon and rosemary essential oils to revitalize your body.

I have been working with essential oils for over a decade and I have come to master the base line energies that each oil obtains. When my intention shifted to using the oils as energy conductors, my clients were able to connect with them on a deeper level and obtain optimum healing qualities. 

Each oil has its own beneficial property, when these oils are mixed into their proper symphony of scents they start to work magic on ones mind, body and spirit.
