If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you`ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.
These natural occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
Essential oils give plants their distinctive smell, they protect and play a role in plant pollination. They can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. The sense of smell is a tool that can elicit powerful physiologic, mental and emotional responses.
Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions, including smell, emotions, behavior and memory. For this reason essential oils have an especially powerful effect via aromatic application, for example using a diffuser.
My personal experience after diving deeper into the aromatic world is, that essential oils are definitely a holistic approach to lift your daily life to new heights. As a yoga teacher i use them not only when I practice at home, but as well in my yoga classes and on a more individual stage with private clients.
The world of essential oils takes you on a sensory journey, just like yoga, that can instantly soothe, enliven and balance body and mind.
Personally I recommend doTERRA for safe and inspiring education. Their oils are of extremely high quality and doTERRA works with world leading scientists.
Have fun exploring this field of beautiful smells yourself and enjoy all the countless tools to enhance life quality.
