Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of using aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonise and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. Aromatherapy uses highly concentrated extracts from certain varieties of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, roots and flowers. It is the most concentrated form of herbal energy available.
Different oils affect us in different ways to stimulate, sedate or enliven the body. How aromatherapy works: as scents are inhaled, the smell travels across the olfactory nerves located inside the nose and then up into the part of the brain that controls our moods, our memories and our ability to learn. This area is called the limbic system and when stimulated it releases endorphins, neurotransmitters and other 'feel-good' chemicals. Essentially what this means is that smells have a subtle way of affecting your mind and emotions.
