As humans, it is our gift that we all experience a vast array of different moods and motions, high and low, sometimes smooth and at others, like a rollercoaster, sometimes even a big dip. Most of the time they just happen and we may or may not be able to exert a level of control over them. When we feel a bad emotion, that usually means something is wrong and we need to make a change, however, we can become stuck in those emotions and states of life and need some extra help to let go and to move forwards.
Some emotions are very rewarding and lift us; at other times, the pressures of life and modern lifestyles give us little time to balance naturally and process our emotions. This is where aromatherapy can really help at a deep level as the oils, gels, lotions and salts create physical, mental and emotional responses which lead to changes in our well being.
We know this as one familiar smell or scent can trigger off a whole range of thoughts, memories and physical responses. Nature contains oils and essences that help us to connect with our emotional states, regain balance and restore well-being.
Essential oils work at a very deep level with our senses connecting to our emotions, mental equilibrium and physical well-being. This is how we are meant to be – responsive to our environment. We know, for example, the quality of our food by the look and sense of smell, it makes us hungry or warns us away, we have a physical, emotional and mental response in a moment. Aromatherapy oils are transmitted directly by the olfactory senses quickly to the brain and via our epidermis (skin) to our blood stream to the brain. Immediate physical and psychological images like the smell of fresh baked bread and coffee, create immediate physical effects such as hunger (bread) and energy (coffee). Our mental well-being changes too. Aromatherapy oils are well known for their effects; traditional preparations like lavender herbs for aiding restful sleep have been used since Roman times.
