Using The Healing Power Of Aromas

aromas
Smell is the strongest of the senses and is best able to influence brain activity. The science of scents and their impact on our brain chemistry and overall health is called aromatherapy. Using natural scents to calm, invigorate, balance, or focus throughout the day is a beautiful way to bring wellness into your routine. There are many ways to engage your sense of smell and benefit from the healing powers of specific scents in nature, see how…

Your sense of smell connects you directly with your emotions, memories, and instincts. Because of the neuro-associative conditioning process, aromas have the power to evoke states of well-being. By using aromas in your daily routine, you can enjoy the benefits of invoking a heightened state of health.

      Our family have used Aromas for years. My son uses a different aromatic oil for each subject when he is studying, and then when he writes that subject, he uses it. It is amazing how the aroma’s reconnect him to everything he has learnt, and he does really well.

      Our best aroma is lavender, and whenever we travel we put a drop or 2 on our pillows, and the whole family sleep like babies.
