AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy, is a term applied to the use of volatile liquids, that are distilled from various parts of plants, including bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and stems. Essential oils and human blood share many common properties. Both fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds and initiate regeneration. Working as the defense mechanism of plants, essential oils possesspotent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. The ability of some essential oils to work as hormones, helps them bring balance to the functioning of many of the body's systems. Essential oils also play a role in initiating the regeneration process of the plant. This is similar to the roll blood plays in the human body. Essential oils have chemical structures that are similar to those found in human cells and tissues. This makes essential oils compatible with human protein and enables them to be readily identified and accepted by the body.

Aromas from essential oils can directly affect everything from your emotional state, to your life span. When a fragrance is inhaled, aroma molecules travel up the nose, where they are trapped by olfactory (smelling) membranes that are well protected by the lining inside the nose. Each aroma molecule fits like a little puzzle piece into specific receptor cells lining a membrane, known as the olfactory epithelium. Each one of these hundreds of millions of nerve cells is replaced every 28 days. When stimulated by aroma molecules, this lining of nerve cells triggers electrical impulses to the gustatory center (where the sensation of taste is perceived), and the amygdala (where emotional memories are stored). Other parts of the limbic system are directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. Essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects on the human economy.
