Introduction to the Therapeutic Benefits of Essential Oils

Introduction to the Therapeutic Benefits of Essential Oils
To most people, a smell isn't just a fragrance, it's a memory. When a warm breeze blows the smell of Jasmin, you're instantly brought back to a certain summer holiday.

These nostalgic ties aren't just a coincidence, there's science behind why we have these strong links. Our olfactory response is directly linked to the emotional center of our brain, causing a flood of warm feelings with a simple sniff. Unlike touch or taste, scents are directly correlated with past experiences. It's no wonder the smell of rain or the smell of pine trees makes us so reminiscent.

But aside from their memory-inducing powers, certain scents can also do amazing things for our mind and body. From stress relief to headache relief, certain aromas have a way of making an impact.
