Do essential oils just smell nice?
Many people believe that Aromatherapy oils are just to do with nice smells. This is somewhat correct, however there is much more to it than just that.
3 ways Aromatherapy oils work-
1. Absorption – When applied to the skin, essential oils penetrate through the hair follicle and directly into your blood stream due to their very small molecular structure. They will last in your bloodstream for up to 8 hours still having their effect.
2. Inhalation – Every essential oil that is inhaled can have an anti-bacterial effect on your respiratory system and slowly makes its way into your blood stream having its effect.
3. Sense of Smell – Essential oils can affect your mood depending on your emotional or physical state at the time. The sense of smell is the most primitive of all our senses and is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. This can help you choose the correct oil for yourself just through smelling it as your body knows what it needs.
