The Science of Emotional Aromatherapy


Featured on the Facebook page of Dr. David K. Hill 

 

Have you ever wondered why a simple smell can provoke a strong emotion or trigger a specific memory? I know the smell of fresh homemade bread reminds me of my sweet mother. The doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy™ Kit is the perfect example of this, and here’s why it works so well:  

 

Essential oils are simply a mixture of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory (smell) receptors in the nose. Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response. The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
