The practice of aromatherapy is well known for its ability to trigger memories and influence emotions and thought, but recent research shows that it can even effect behavior.

As you inhale an aroma, odour molecules enter your nostrils and drift up toward your olfactory receptors. Once the receptors identify an odor, nerve cells relay this information directly to the limbic system. The olfactory nerve cells are the only sensory pathways that open directly into the brain. The limbic system is a group of deep brain structures that are involved in the sense of smell. Here odors can trigger memories and influence emotions and behavior. Did you know that the brain registers aroma twice as fast as it does pain. No wonder the inhalation of aromas can have such a powerful effect on and in transforming the emotions. The limbic system works with the nervous, respiratory, circulatory and immune systems of our bodies.

Studies at the University of Vienna have shown that some essential oils and their primary constituents (cineol) can stimulate blood flow and activity in the emotional regions of the brain.

According to a study published in Psychological Science back in 2005, researchers found that “cleaning-related activities increased” when individuals where exposed to citrus-related scents! How awesome is that?

Three different studies revealed various unconscious influences on participants just from the mere short term exposure to citrus scents. Researchers found that citrus scents had a direct influence on participants.

  • It influenced their thoughts and subsequent behaviors
  • Participants kept their direct environment more clean
  • Participants indicated that they were more willing to give money to charity and to feel good about their decision to share with others

“The ability of essential oils to act on both the mind and the body is what makes them truly unique among natural therapeutic substances. The fragrance of some essential oils can be very stimulating– both psychologically and physically.”– D. Gary Young

Your sense of smell exerts a surprising and powerful influence over your body on the physical, mental and emotional levels. Many find the use of pure, therapeutic-grade Young Living essential oils very uplifting and diffuse them every day.

Additional Benefits of Citrus Oils

Citrus oils have many other additional benefits! Lemon is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, which supports the immune system and overall health while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy while also freshenig the air when being diffused. When taken internally lemon essential oils helps maintain a healthy pH balance in the body. Essential oils… they just plain do a body good!!!
