Powerful healing occurs when we introduce the application of smells and aromas into our lives. Aromatherapy, through the use of certified therapeutic grade essential oils, allows beneficial constituents of plants to be absorbed by the body three ways: 1) through diffusion, direct inhalation which travels via olfactory nerves, 2) topical application where essential oils are diluted with a carrier oil or other substance and applied to the skin, and 3) ingestion when we eat or drink the herbs as foods and teas .
Many essential oils that are beneficial to brain health, such as Rosemary, Sage, Lemon Balm, Lemon and Peppermint, can pass through the blood-brain barrier to deliver a natural therapeutic healing touch to vital neurological tissues. Dispensing a few drops of Peppermint essential oil on the shower floor in the morning helps to awaken and invigorate the senses. Cleaning one’s home with natural oils of Orange or Lemon, or wiping counters with a blend of Rosemary, Sage and Lemon can be stimulating to the senses as well as effective at eliminating odors and bacteria.
