doTerra Essential Oils
Essential oils are used to produce relaxing, calming, and uplifting feelings.
Research has shown that the scent of essential oils can cause reactions in chemical sensors in the brain. Because of this, aromatic use allows the essential oil user to achieve a desired effect, depending on the chemical structure of the essential oil. Many essential oils contain chemical properties that have been shown to promote relaxing feelings, a calming atmosphere, and the ability to soothe anxious feelings when used aromatically.
Essential oils interact with chemical sensors in the brain, thus creating a response. These chemical sensors are called olfactory sensors. They live in the olfactory system of the brain - the part of the brain that regulates our sense of smell. The olfactory system is connected to the limbic system where emotions and memories are stored.
When using essential oils aromatically, the scent travels through the nose to the olfactory system where it is processed, and then travels through the olfactory nerve to the limbic system.
