How Aromatherapy Can Improve Your Health And How To Use It Effectively
Some believe that sense of smell plays a major role, communicating with parts of the brain that serve to store emotions and memories and influence our physical, mental and emotional health. Others believe that its not about the aroma but the process that occurs in the body after their application and how the oils interact in the blood with hormones or enzymes. Studies have shown that essential oils might have health benefits. As a result, aromatherapy is used in a variety of settings, from spas to hospitals, to treat various conditions. According to Cancer Research UK, it is a helpful complementary therapy for patients with cancer as well as other types of illness. Cancer patients noted improved quality of life, including reduced stress levels, better sleep and less feelings of sickness when undergoing aromatherapy treatments. Generally, aromatherapy is used to improve mood, promote relaxation and relieve pain.
