Its important to take care as Aromatherapy has such a powerful effect on the body because it taps into our limbic system. This is the part of the brain that deals with emotions, memories, stimulation and can have a huge influence on your hormonal responses.
Aromatherapy oils can bypass the blood-brain barrier through the olfactory system. Once inhaled, essential oils can stimulate memories, moods, deep feelings and feelings of deep relaxation.
