- Inhaling essential oils has an effect on our emotions, hormones and the neurological system
- Inhaled molecules reach the brain via odor cells
- The odor system is closely linked to the limbic system in the brain (responsible for emotional well -being)*
Inhaling our essential oils stimulates your odor system, the part of the brain that is related to the feeling of smell. Inhaled molecules get through the upper respiratory tract and from there to other areas of your body. They influence the limbic system, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress and hormones and help to achieve balance in these areas.
