One of the easiest and efficient way of using essential oils is to deeply inhale their scent.
You may simply open the lid of one of the bottles or rub one drop of oil in your hand, rub
them together and take a deep breath or you can use diffusers, sprays, incenses or aromatic
spritzer for creating a healing ambience around you.
As oil evaporates in the air and enters the body through the nose and into the olfactory
system, part of the brain connected to the sense of smell, molecules that enter the nose or
mouth pass through the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body. As the molecules
reach the brain, they affect the limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, the heart rate,
blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance. In this way, essential oils
can have a subtle, yet holistic effect on the body.
