Smell to Feel
To better understand aromatherapy benefits, one has to experience it first. It helps to know how your body processes smells. The sense of smell is pretty powerful. In fact, the body can distinguish around 10,000 different scents. Is’nt that unbelievable ?
As scents are inhaled, the smell travels across the olfactory nerves located inside the nose and then up into the part of the brain that controls our moods, our memories and our ability to learn. This area when stimulated it releases endorphins, neurotransmitters and other ‘feel-good’ chemicals.
Wow! That’s pretty scientific stuff… not to worry, in a nutshell, what all of that means is that smells have a subtle way of effecting your mind and emotions.
Just think of the way you feel when you sniff the scent from a fresh bouquet of flowers versus your reaction when you smell something not so fresh like garbage or burnt toast. A big difference right?
It’s a technique that uses the body’s sense of smell to help boost your mood, relieve the stress, energize and encourage better health. It’s also used to treat certain emotional and physical conditions.
