Health Benefits of Organic Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that treats the mind, body and spirit. When essential oils are applied to the body during a massage, the essential oils enter the skin through the hair follicles where they are absorbed in to the blood stream and circulated around the body.

Essential oil aromas stimulate the part of the brain that affects emotion. The shape of an essential oil molecule is like a key that opens lock-like structure in the olfactory nerve receptors in our nostrils. The impression of the aroma is sent directly and immediately to the limbic system where memories are stored and pleasure and emotions are perceived. When stimulated, the limbic system releases chemicals that affect the central nervous system.

Improves Digestion

Digestive issues can certainly be treated by aromatherapy. It can ease constipation, indigestion, bloating and can speed up the metabolism so food is digested more quickly.

Promotes Deep Sleep

Not getting enough sleep can exacerbate or cause a huge range of medical conditions and can leave us feeling unproductive and devoid of energy. Luckily, aromatherapy comes through again and can provide us with a more balanced sleep schedule and can even realign our Circadian rhythms so our body naturally gets tired at an appropriate time, sleeps restfully through the night, and is energized in the morning to face the day.

Alleviates Headaches

Aromatherapy can be a wonderful solution that can not only eliminate your current headache, but possibly reduce the stress, anxiety or medical origin of your headaches to help prevent them in the future. Pain relief is one of the most useful applications of aromatherapy as it is not invasive or destructive to any part of the body.

Boosts Memory Capacity

One of the most frightening and widespread diseases affecting older people is memory loss and the inability to form short term memories. Aromatherapy has often been turned to as an alternative or supplemental treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have also shown the efficacy of aromatherapy on younger patients in terms of boosting their memory capacity for a certain amount of time after the treatment. This refreshing burst for the brain can be useful in all walks of life, no matter what age you are!

Reduces Stress & Pain

Perhaps the most widespread and popular use of aromatherapy is for stress relief. The aromatic compounds from many different essential oils are known as relaxants and can help to soothe your mind and eliminate anxiety. This is what most people who perform aromatherapy at home use it for, since the mixtures are very simple and the research on this aspect of aromatherapy is very well-known and widely studied.

Strengthens Immune System

Aromatherapy can give your immune system a serious boost when used properly. The anti-microbial effects, as well as the anti-fungal and antibacterial effects can protect you from any number of illnesses and infections that could damage your system. This area of aromatherapy is very popular and widely studied for fighting viruses, bacteria and fungal infections.

Balances Hormone Production

Since essential oils contain properties that stimulate cells to regain their natural functions, they are able to help balance internal health issues so that your body can function as it should. Essential oils trigger beneficial hormonal actions that are supportive and compliment our endocrine system as it manufactures and seeks to balance the natural hormones our body makes. Some essential oils are noted to have estrogenic properties which means that their presence in the body stimulates the same receptor sites that estrogens do and, thus, they help to balance hormones.

Enhances Mood & Balances Emotions

Second to stress relief, aromatherapy is very commonly used to eliminate feelings of depression.

Enhances The Skin’s Natural Emollients

Essential oils are quickly absorbed through the skin, traveling around individual cells and into hair follicles, where the oils enter the sebaceous glands and mingle with the skin’s natural emollients. The chemical properties of the oils can be cleansing, deodorizing, toning and balancing.

Improves Blood & Lymphatic Circulation

Depending upon the essential oils used the blood vessels will either constrict or dilate thereby raising or lowering blood pressure.
