Let’s talk about how to use essential oils AROMATICALLY. This is considered the German method. You can use your diffuser, put a drop in a diffuser necklace, put a drop in your hands cup it over your mouth and nose and breathe deeply, or simply open the bottle and breathe in. Inhaling oils enters the body differently then using topically or internally. It hits sensors in the brain as oppose to the blood stream. And it only takes 20 seconds to start working! Below are some great recipes, but feel free to make your own. There is no right or wrong. Play around and have fun.
“When an essential oil is inhaled through the nose, it is dissolved within the olfactory epithelium (a tissue of layered cells in the nasal cavity) which has more than 40 million cells made of small hairs called cilia also known as olfactory receptors. These receptors receive the micro-fine oil particles carrying them to the mitral cells in the olfactory bulb. The olfactory bulb then transmits a signal to areas of the brain such as the hippocampus, amygdale, hypothalamus or the olfactory cortex all of which are part of the limbic system.
Emotions, long term memory, and behavior are functions that are managed by the limbic system. The strong connections people have between scent and memories, emotions, and places are created through this mechanism of smell.
In this way, diffusing essential oils can be very helpful in overcoming fear or trauma and are extremely valuable in building new and positive memories and experiences.”
