Everyday aromatherapy for mind, body and soul.
Aromatherapy, classed as a pseudoscience is based on the use of natural, aromatic compounds found in the pure plant and flower essential oils or essences, either inhaled or applied topically (neat or diluted) with appropriate carrier oils for massage. Aromatherapy has been an alternative medicine used for centuries, to enhance physical, mental, emotional and a general sense of wellbeing and the term ‘aromatherapy’ was first used in the 19th century in France by a biochemist and perfumer, who reported how he used essential oils to treat diseases. Gorgeous aromas from nature don’t just smell amazing but really do have the power to positively impact the mind, body and soul.
The benefits of INHALING essential oils
As we inhale essential oils, aromas are carried by olfactory nerve cells inside the nose to the wider olfactory system which transmits the scent to the brain, via the limbic system. The limbic system is also where higher order processing takes place (compared to the reptilian system that is designed by nature to focus on survival and takes over when we are stressed or in danger, which can block out the limbic system working properly, until all is calm and safe, allowing the body to re-access it’s higher order, rational reasoning capacity).
The limbic system is where emotions and behaviours are processed. The impact of inhaling oils can have an immediate effect i.e., you may become more alert, more relaxed, feel excited or aroused, feel any negative emotions and/or muscle tensions diminish. Scientifically, essential oil aromatics can also boost a low mood, as they trigger the release of feel-good neurotransmitters (serotonin and endorphins) in the brain. The human sense of smell is ten thousand times more powerful than any of our other senses and processing aromas is immediate. Smells have strong connections to our subconscious and collective unconscious mind, where memories are stored. Other senses such as touch and taste are communicated to the brain, via the spinal cord in the central nervous system.

The benefits of APPLYING essential oils topically to the skin
Essential oils are naturally packed with beneficial antioxidants that minimise the impact of free radical damage within cells. Free radicals (which are single, unpaired electrons) cause oxidative damage which happens in most bodily processes from skin damage, aging, cross linkage in wrinkles, DNA damage within cells, cancers, heart disease and even premature death. The aim of antioxidants is to get all the single electrons (free radicals) back into stable, non-damaging electron pairs, to help reduce bodily damage and disease.
Applying essential oils directly onto the skin, the largest organ in the human body (in natural creams, oils, massage blends or neat) allows them to be absorbed deep into the dermal layers. Essential oils then combine with body fats and fluids, where they enter the circulatory system to deliver their antioxidants and properties.
