DAY 1: Post #4 – EMOTIONS AND AROMA

One of the most well-studied areas of aroma research is the effect of smell on EMOTIONS and MOOD. For example, there is convincing evidence demonstrating that simply inhaling the AROMA of an ESSENTIAL OIL is effective for calming nervous or anxious feelings in a variety of settings.

The SMELL receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, an area that governs the body’s EMOTIONAL responses.

Some AROMAS directly impact MOOD (for example calming, balancing, or invigorating), while others trigger memories of a specific experience, often one tied to a strong EMOTION.

Experience your oils Aromatically by:

  1. DIFFUSING the oil into the air. Not only does diffusion make the oil accessible to the body, but research indicates that there are also air purification benefits when diffusing oils.
  2. DROPPING Essential Oils into the palm of the hand and then cupping around the nose and breathing deeply. This is a convenient method for using Essential Oils at ANY time, in ANY situation.
  3. ESSENTIAL OIL INHALERS are a great on-the-go way to use your Essential Oils. Simply add five to eight drops of your favorite oil to the wick and use over and over again.
