The Power of Essential Oils
An essential oil is actually a highly concentrated plant component, rather than an oil. They can be distilled from various parts of a plant, including leaves, flowers, fruits, woods and seeds. It can take a huge amount of a plant to produce even a tiny amount of essential oil, which is why some can be very expensive.
Essential oils have the ability to trigger emotional and mental responses from the brain as well as physical reactions within the body. We can use them in all areas of our lives: to relax and sleep, or to wake up and focus. They can improve our digestion and help to clear and brighten skin. An essential oil is far more than just a smell; the healing effect can be mental, physical and emotional.
How Essential Oils Work
Essential oils enter our bodies either through absorption through the skin, or inhalation via the nose. When we inhale essential oils through the nose, the airborne molecules of the oil interact with the olfactory organs and can interact with the brain almost immediately. Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth can also interact with the respiratory system via the lungs. One way essential oils can be very effective is through interaction with the emotional brain or limbic system. The limbic system is directly connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, memory, breathing, hormone balance and stress levels - which is why a smell can trigger such a powerful emotional response in us. It’s also why inhaling certain essential oils can make us feel calmer or more alert almost instantly - and why we often associate certain smells with particular memories in a way that doesn’t occur with our other senses.
The Scentered Ritual
The Scentered ritual is based around trying to find a tiny moment in between the hustle and bustle of daily life:
and apply to pulse points
Your mood and get on with your day
This might seem a bit too simple, but it really does make a difference. Even the most busy of people can spare the few seconds it takes to take a deep breath and reset our mood. It’s quick and simple, but the process of just taking a brief pause and a deep breath can make a dramatic difference to your mood, to your ability to cope and to your wellbeing.
