What can Aromatherapy do for me?

The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.

When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.

Aromatherapy can help to alleviate stress, release tension and may eliminate toxins held in the body. It can induce a state of deep relaxation, increased well bring and renewed energy and vigour. Specific essential oils may help with particular ailments including muscle aches, skin problems, indigestion, asthma, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
