By infusing the energy medicine of flower essences into 100% therapeutic essential oils, the physical, mental and emotional components of overall well-being are addressed. It's no wonder the company's motto is:
Breathe in. Feel better.
Aromatherapy products are known for smelling good. Medical Aromatherapy takes it a step further by using essential oils not just for their nice scent, but for their specific therapeutic benefits to the body, both physically and emotionally.
While humans have been using plant aromatic compounds, called essential oils, for thousands of years the plants have been fine tuning their healing powers for millions of years. Yes, millions of years. Medical Aromatherapy takes these powerful plant essential oils and applies them to everyday concerns such as boosting your immune system and energy levels, improving mood and mental focus, or helping calm and relax you.
How does aromatherapy work? The sense of smell is connected directly to the brain's limbic system, the area that regulates emotions, motivations and memory. This means that essential oils can have an immediate impact on your nervous system, which plays a role in nearly every aspect of your health and well-being. Scent molecules bond with receptors. Olfactory receptors then send electric signals that travel to the olfactory bulb and along the olfactory tract until they are transmitted to the higher regions of the brain. Those areas of the brain send signals to the nervous system, lymphatic system, muscular systems, circulatory system, etc.
