Our sense of smell is more important than you think. It attaches itself to olfaction, which is a chemoreception that forms the sense of smell. Those receptors can also interact with parts of the brain responsible for things such as memory and emotion. Now, what does that have to do with aromas? Well, this is where we introduce you to a new trend called aromatherapy.
What is aromatherapy?
The term aromatherapy is composed of two words that happen to be quite self-explanatory: aroma and therapy. It means the holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being.
How does it work?
When it comes down to aromatherapy, take flowers as an example. They're known for their beauty but also their scent. When you smell a rose, the molecules of said rose to release themselves into the air and eventually travel up in your nose in your olfactory receptors. Then neurochemicals and hormones are released. Many can create different reactions. This explains why lavender can help with sleep, and why roses remind us of romance.
What are the benefits?
Aromatherapy has many healing properties such as the enhancement of physical and emotional health. It's an array of benefits also includes an improvement in sleep quality, reduction of anxiety and stress as well as boost immunity. All those problems yearning to be solved are linked not only to emotional well-being but also skincare. A lot of people forget that stress is a common factor that affects our skin.
