Aromatherapy, an ancient practice with roots in Egypt and Asia, centers around the use of essential oils extracted from plants to promote healing and well-being. These aromatic plant essences interact with our senses, particularly our sense of smell, and influence the limbic system in our brain - the area associated with emotion, memory, and instinct.
When we inhale the aroma of essential oils, the
scent molecules travel up our nose where the olfactory bulb analyzes them. This
bulb then sends signals directly to our limbic system. Here's where it gets fascinating:
the limbic system is a network of structures in our brain that plays a
significant role in controlling mood, memory, behavior, and emotion. So, when the
scent of essential oils stimulates this system, it can have a profound impact on our
mental and emotional well-being, shaping how we feel, react, and remember.
