How Aromatherapy Can Enhance Your Life
Choosing a product may seem easy, but there are many factors that go in to it. One major factor is the scent. The scent of the product must fit to your intentions. For example, if you are looking for more energy throughout the day you need to look into a scent that will work for you.
Many of you may be wondering, how can a scent provide energy? Easy!
Aromatherapy has been practiced for thousands of years by Egyptians and Greeks. The Egyptians first invented the distillation machine to extract oils from certain plants. Greek mythology claims the gods were gifted with the knowledge of perfume and fragrance. Although roots of aromatherapy may be traced back to China where they utilized aromas as a mood enhancer. The term "Aromatherapy" wasn't used until 1937 by a French chemist named Rene-Maurice Gattefosse. He was able to use lavender oil to cure a burn wound.
Johnny Slicks understands the healing power of scented oils and utilizes specific scents to benefit the body. Each scent is hand-picked and goes through a testing period to ensure skin sensitivities and allergies are not triggered. Each scent is picked based on the effects they have on limbic system and the olfactory nerve.
The limbic system is responsible for our emotional life and partly controls memories. It's the reason a certain smell can flash you back to a childhood memory or alter your mood.
The first cranial nerve is called the Olfactory and it controls the sense of smell.
When a person inhales, the scent is carried by olfactory nerve cells in the nose to the olfactory system. Which is then sent to the limbic system in the brain.
When choosing a health or beauty product the scent should be a huge factor in your decision. Whether the scent is meant to help you relax, or help provide energy, it should be able to benefit your life and your goals.
