Aromatherapy- A form of alternative medicine that uses essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds that are aimed at improving a person’s health or mood.
The science behind the benefits of aromatherapy is continuing to improve and grow. It has been proven that the inhalation of essential oils stimulates the part of the brain connected to smell – the olfactory system. The olfactory system is the brain’s most primitive part and a person’s sense of smell is the only one of the five senses to not hit our cognitive core (a much more developed area of our brain). The olfactory system is connected to the limbic system, which controls emotions and recaptures stored memories. This interaction causes chemicals to be released which then allows a person to have the ability to feel relaxed, calm, alert or even refreshed.
To receive the maximum benefits from essential oils, it is best to have them dispersed in the air through a method known as “cold air diffusion.” This is much more effective then heating the oils on a burner, as when heated, the oils can become volatile and loose some of their healing properties. Additionally, when using pure essential oils, it is very important to not apply them directly to your skin. Some oils can be harmful if they are not diluted, and it is best to consult a professional aromatherapist before direct skin contact.
