Aromatherapy can be a great relief for series emotional issues including stress, anxiety and depression. In addition to neutralizing these feelings, they also have the ability to create a calm mind, increase happiness and boost confidence.
The sense of smell is the most primal sense, and has a great deal of influence over feelings, moods, memories and overall behavior. Other sensory experiences are delivered to the thalamus which is responsible for diagnosing auditory, visual, tactile and gustatory signals. Smell on the other hand first passes through other regions of the brain including areas that control memory and emotions. For this reason, scents provide triggers to the brain that effect emotions as well as a physical benefit that can enhance and improve emotional well-being.
