The effects of aromatherapy

Aromatherapy effects


Every day, we become more and more convinced that the only way to live healthily is to be in communion with Nature.

When we go out in nature we feel fulfilled and regenerated, because all our senses are harmoniously "fed": we see beautiful landscapes, hear the rustle of leaves and the rustle of water, feel the breeze, if we are lucky we taste some fruit... and enjoy the pleasant smells of nature. Who doesn'twas "intoxicated" by the scent of linden blossoms, or roses? Who has never smelt the scent of dried grass that heralds autumn? Or, who has not taken a deep breath of pine-scented air?a trip to the mountains or Christmas?

What could we modern people do, who live most of the time ina great speed and at a great distance from Nature's benefactor, to maintain our communion with her?

AROMATHERAPY is a primary way of harmonising within the reach of modern man, allowing us both to enjoy the harmony of the extremely pleasant natural scents of essential oils and to maintain our health.

The effects of using AROMATHERAPY are amazing and you will see this for yourself just by trying it out.him.

We know that there are no smells to which we are indifferent. They always provoke emotional feelings (pleasant or unpleasant). We can ask ourselves: "What is the point of smells in our lives?" Even if this question seems childish, how many of us adults know all the answers? We know that smells help us to choose, understand and gain essential information. But smell also has hidden meanings for us that we often overlook.

What makes some smells pleasant to us and others unpleasant and why we prefer the smells we like and avoid them.the ones we find repulsive as much as we can?

In addition, we may also wonder how these essential oils, which are chemically complex mixtures of pleasant smelling active substances, actually work when we take them.

Action of essential oils

A scent we like connects our psyche to the harmony of nature. When we smell an essential oil, we experience a state of delight, our brain immediately triggers a emotion specific beneficial. Why an emotion? Because in the brain, the smell nerve centres are located next to the emotional nerve centres, so through the vegetative nervous system, stimulation of the smell centres causes physiological effects. For example, basil essential oil removes nervous tension, anxiety, nervous fatigue, fatigue, depression, etc..

Unpleasant smells, through the same mechanism described above, without us being able to control it, create unpleasant emotional states.

As we smell the essential oil, we breathe in the oil particles floating in the air. They enter the lungs, immediately passing into the bloodstream and entering the bloodstream, acts throughout the body. Taking, as an example, all basil essential oil, it relieves by direct action: inflammations, viroids, atherosclerosis, varicose veins, travel sickness, digestive disorders, hepatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc..

When applied to the skin (always diluted), essential oils penetrate deeply and reach the bloodstream very quickly. So, Their application to the skin also works throughout the body.

Essential oils taken internally (swallowed) have an extremely powerful effect, which is why they should only be taken internally when recommended by a specialist.

Therapeutic dose for essential oils is extremely low, generally not more than 5-10 drops of essential oil/day.
