How Does Aromatherapy Relieve Stress?

October 18, 2016

 

 

For thousands of years, people have been utilizing essential oils for therapeutic purposes. The treatment of stress is one area that has shown particular benefit from aromatherapy.

The body's limbic system is where our emotions are processed and the hub of all the stress we create and feel. When we inhale pleasant aromas, they stimulate the olfactory senses in the nose. Olfactory senses then relay our response to the scent directly to our limbic system. As a result, pleasing aromas can calm, defuse, and center our body's reaction to stress.

 

 

Aromatherapy uses essential oils in a variety of forms, any of which you can try for yourself in the comfort of your home. You may use scented candles or diffusers that distribute oil-scented steam to create a certain atmosphere and smell throughout a room. You might also utilize towels infused with oils and drape them over the face and body, or rub in lotions and creams made with essential oils. Whatever way your senses receive essential oils, aromatherapy practices can relieve stress and help restore a sense of balance and well-being.
