The Power of Scent: Aromatherapy

published 09 April 2018

Are you feeling fatigued, demotivated, and generally feeling down? Relief may just be a scent away.

For over 5000 years, aromatherapy has been used to enhance well-being by utilising the pleasant aromas and essences of healing plants and herbs. These scents have both sedative and stimulant effects on our immune and central nervous systems.

Aromatherapy is an alternative medicine practice that involves the art and science of smell whereby a particular scent stimulates the smell receptors in the nose. These receptors then send messages to the emotional seat of the brain which rules feelings, memory and creativity. The simple inhalation of an aroma can cause many changes in the body and more specifically in mood.
