What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy using pure, therapeutic grade essential
oils to help boost the immune system and improve health and well-being.
Smell is the most underrated of the senses, yet it has the most subtle
significance in our lives. It arouses a very primitive area of the
brain, below the level of conscious thought, and even a few atoms of scent can
have an immediate effect on the body's systems, triggering changes in our
physical state as well as our emotional reactions. People from all
around the world have been using aromatherapy and essential oils for thousands
of years to cleanse and heal the body and mind.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the blood of the plant that are distilled from seeds,
bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, etc. Clinical research shows
essential oils can quickly raise the frequency of the human body and increase
the production of white blood cells, which help fight infectious illnesses.
Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency that is several times greater
than the frequency of herbs and food.
How does it Affects Us?
Scientist have discovered the impact emotional and mental factors have in
maintaining our physical health. Essential oils benefit our emotional
and mental state as well as our physical body, because they can cross the "blood-brain
barrier" and reach the brain centers responsible for the deepest human
instinct and emotions.
How does it work?
Molecules of essential oils are transmitted to the brain via the olfactory
bulbs (responsible for our sense of smell), which are located above and behind
Every endocrine gland in the brain is affected simultaneously and instantly
within microseconds of the inhalation of essential oil molecules.
The impulses are then carried
past the pineal and pituitary glands right to the amygdala.
In 1989 it was discovered
that the amygdala plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional
trauma. Dr. Joseph Ledoux of New York Medical University views this as a
major breakthrough in releasing emotional trauma.
Research at Cornell
University discovered that the only stimulus that triggered a response in the
amygdala was smell. The amygdala plays a major role in the storing and
releasing of emotional trauma. The only way to stimulate this gland is
with odor and aroma. This research
demonstrates we are now able to release emotional trauma with the use of
aromatherapy and essential oils. When this gland is stimulated, old
experiences often come to the surface. The amygdala is the gland that
controls trauma, sexual drive, desire, appetite, flight and fear.
