Aromatherapy has been intuitively used in ancient civilisations for thousands of years to heal a number of ailments. Within our modern world, advances in technology and research has allowed us to understand how this therapy works on the human brain and emotions. It is via the olfactory system (smell) that essential oils provide their greatest benefits. When inhaled, essential oils interact with receptor cells in the nose, which transmit signals to different parts of the brain activating the central nervous system. It is here that chemicals like serotonin, endorphin and noradrenalin are released to exhibit the desired affects found in our calming and balancing oils.
