Have you ever wondered why a simple smell can provoke a strong emotion or trigger a specific memory?

Most of us have experienced memories of long ago simply by smelling something that takes us back to our childhood. Even momentary subtle hints of a smell can change our mood.

This is why essential oils have such wide-ranging effects on us emotionally!

Essential oils are simply mixtures of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory (smell) receptors in the nose.

Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response.

The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
