Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it's called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.
You might wonder how this process of smell could help our body. We know that events and memories of the events are stored within our cells. An emotion lasts for 90 seconds if we allow it to be experienced and process out of our bodies. Sometimes these emotional memories (if we don't allow them to process out as they occur) can be stored in our bodies and cells and can interfere with our current experiences. Joseph LeDoux and his research teamed showed that the sense of smell (which can be accessed via aromatherapy) caused the amygdala glad to release stored emotions. There is also evidence that essential oils were used throughout history. In the Temple of Isis in Philae, essential oils were used in an Ancient Technique called the Cleansing of the Flesh and Blood. The sense of smell and aromatherapy has a role to play in healing!
It is important that we use therapeutic grade essential oils and toxic free products. Early in my life I recognized I was very sensitive to smells and stopped wearing perfume. It was even hard for me to be around people wearing perfume. As I moved along on my spiritual journey I kept meeting other people with this very same sensitivity. I now recognize my keen and sensitive sense of smell is keeping me healthy by helping me make good choices of what is going into my body. I am happy to be a Brand Partner with Young Living. None of their oils or products trigger my sensitivities! I can even wear the oils as my new and improved perfume!
