How Does Aromatherapy Work?
To understand the process of aromatherapy it is important to first know how the body processes smells. As a scent is inhaled it travels into the nose and across the olfactory nerves where nerve cells are activated. This sequence sends impulses that stimulate the brain and release endorphins, neurotransmitters and other happy-hormones and feel-good chemicals. Essential oil substances, then, are drawn into the lungs and absorbed into the bloodstream thereby producing therapeutic benefits. In essence, smells have a gentle power of effecting your mind and emotions.
