Research has shown that the negative emotions we attach to certain situations can be altered or eliminated by aromatherapy. According to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, aromatherapy is so powerful that it can have the same effect on our bodies as meditation, as certain scents can cause physiological responses. This is because scent has a complex relationship to the brain. Smell has the capacity to cross the blood-barrier and travel to the central nervous system.
Through the olfactory system, scents have direct access to the limbic area of the brain, which is termed the “emotional center of the brain.” Our emotions and our sense of smell are highly attached. So, when you inhale an aromatic candle, a very complex relationship between your sense of smell and your brain is triggered, a powerful relationship that has the ability to enhance your health and your mood!
