Aromatherapy & You

Your Guide To Scents

Do you know that warm, sleepy feeling you get when you walk in the door after a long day and the smell of your favorite dish cooking fills your nose? Instantly, you’re transported back in time to a happy moment spent around the table with loved ones, filling your bellies and your souls at once.

That’s your brain hard at work to help you associate those yummy smells with happy memories from the past, and it can help you increase productivity, promote feelings like sleep or wake you up, or just turn a frown upside down.

The power of scent on the brain is a natural instinct designed to help us find food and avoid danger. It’s no secret to big-business that we can be coerced with a fragrant aroma, but are you harnessing the power of Aromatherapy for yourself?

Aromatherapy is a strong, science-backed tool — use it to your benefit.

Scent is entirely personal. What smells make you smile?

Aromatherapy Benefits & Uses

What exactly is aromatherapy?

How does it work?

Apart from providing a pleasant smell, aromatherapy oils can provide respiratory disinfection, decongestant, and psychological benefits.

Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell, including the nose and the brain.

Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body.

As the molecules reach the brain, they affect the limbic system, which is linked to emotions, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance.

In this way, essential oils can have a subtle, yet holistic effect on the body.
