How Aromatherapy Can Enhance Your Overall Well-Being
Natural Aromatherapy is the practice of using pure essential oils to support our overall well-being through our sense of smell or skin absorptions to help us relax, boost our mood, and relieve discomfort. Pure Essential oils are created by carefully steaming or pressing a plant’s roots, stems, leaves, flowers, seeds, or fruits to capture the beneficial compounds. Natural Aromatherapy has been used for centuries all over the world for self-care and wellness.
A scent can invoke strong emotional and physical reactions as well as good and bad memories. Science has proven, when inhaled, the scent molecules of pure essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves to the limbic system, directly to the brain. Especially impacting the amygdala, the most ancient and primitive part of the brain. Which is said to be the seat of all emotion.
Nasal inhalation is the fastest and most direct method to receive the therapeutic benefits of pure essential oils into our systems. The nasal inhalation process directly stimulates the limbic system, releasing neurotransmitters, regulating our moods, and balancing our psychological and physical states while clearing nasal passages for easier breathing.
The topical application of pure essential oils is the second most preferred method of aromatherapy. The safely diluted powerful molecules are so small that when applied to the skin, they can pass through the epidermis, the outer layer of our skin. Then the pure essential oil molecules pass through the dermis, the second layer of our skin, into the capillaries, and the bloodstream. It is important to dilute the pure essential oils with an easily absorbed carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil. Topical application is best suited for massage, skincare benefits, and discomfort and pain relief.
Once essential oils have been inhaled or applied topically, the natural benefits can stay in our systems for up to one hundred twenty minutes. Depending on the individual oil or complex blends’ constituents. Some pure essential oils are naturally stronger than others and the benefits may last longer.
Essential oils are now found in many natural self-care products and wellness products. However, be sure the products you choose are made with pure essential oils. Because many companies process their essential oils with synthetic fillers and extenders, creating a cheap and adulterated essential oil product that may cause severe adverse reactions.
