It’s time to get a little nerdy 🤓 because you may be wondering how essential oils work with your brain aromatically. It all comes down to the Limbic System (which is actually what works with aromatic compounds).Hold tight, if you are a science nerd like me, you’re going to love this! When you inhale an essential oil, the molecules of the oil go into the back of each nostril to the epithelium patch where the molecules attach to receptors on the cilia hairs. These convert to nerves that send the odor information to the olfactory bulb in the brain. This bulb communicates directly with the amygdala, hippocampus and other brain structures. Still with me? 🙃🙃🙃 Good! Getting to the good stuff - promise! The amygdala is the center for emotions in the limbic system and it links our sense of smell to our ability to learn emotionally. (Hello👋 EMOTIONAL BRAIN) The capacity to link information and emotions is why essential oils are such a powerful partner in creating and maintaining emotional health. This is EXACTLY why smells will trigger memories more than seeing an image, tasting food, or even listening to music! How amazing is our brain?! ☀️Some of our most popular oils to start to anchor your emotional brain are citrus oils, as they provoke happy, uplifting and supportive emotions in most people. What is your favorite citrus oil to grab and inhale?
