For The Mind

Our sense of smell, olfaction, has direct contact with the amygdala, through olfactory nerves.  When aromatic molecules of essential oils are inhaled, some chemicals, such as limonene, can potentially interrupt the stress response, decrease the sympathetic response to the stressor & allow a person time & space to better evaluate the situation.  This can help bring an individual’s body/mind/spirit back into a state of balance (homeostasis).

Aromatic molecules can also help energize the mind when tired, relax the nervous system when trying to sleep and help one focus when trying to learn new information or recall a memory during a test.
