Aromatherapy, a Powerful Healing Tool!
Essential oils have long been heralded as natures answer to everything from insomnia to cancer, but what is is about these precious herbal essences that makes it such a powerful ally? We can thank our sense of smell. Have you ever caught the scent of a freshly made pie and it made you smile? How about the scent of a lilac that brought back childhood memories? Essentially this is the basic concept of aromatherapy.
Our olfactory system has the ability to distinguish over 1,000 different scents. It is directly linked to the limbic system. The limbic system is the part of the brain that handles memory, emotion, learning and memory. Different essential oils have shown to influence the different areas of your limbic system in order to provide the desired effect. For example, Lavender has shown to stimulate the release of dopamine, which relaxes muscles and eases stress.
There are many different essential oil combinations designed to create different effects in the human body. It is so complex that there is a certification that is required in order to become an aromatherapist. Free Range SkinCare utilizes the power of aromatherapy in our Aromatherapy Lotion Bars . They are designed to help your body help itself. From immune system boosters to anxiety they are an affordable way to enjoy the immense benefits essential oils can provide.
