Preface

Good smell can ignite us, while bad smell can upset our mood. The science of good smells is aromatherapy.

The aroma enter our nose and connects with cilia, the fine hair inside the nose lining. The receptors in the cilia are linked to the olfactory bulb which is at the end of the smell tract. The end of the tract is in turn connected to the brain itself. Smells are converted by cilia into electrical impulses that are transmitted to the brain through olfactory system.

All the impluses reach the limbic system. Limbic system is that part of the brain which is associated with our moods, emotions, memory and learning. All the smells that reaches the limbic system has a direct chemical effect on our moods. For example, a whiff of jasmine increases beta waves in the brain and this wave is associated with an increased agile and alert state. Swelling lavender increases alpha waves in the brain and it is this wave that helps us to relax.

The moleculor sizes of essential oils are very tiny and they can easily penetrate through the skin and get into the blood stream. It takes between a few seconds to two hours for the essential oils to enter the skin and within four hours the toxins get out of the body through urine, perspiration and excreta. Aroma oils work like magic for stress related problems, psychosomatic disorders, skin infections, hair loss, inflammations, pains arising from muscular or skeletal disorders to name some of the applications.

There are different way of using essential oils like rubbing, bath, massage, inhalation, should he used in lesser quantity by mixing in proper carrier oils and under guidance of some expert.

If you have any query, you can write to me with a reply envelope but please do not come without prior appointment. With thanks and regards.
