Can Essential Oils Affect Your Mood?
by Myra Charleston

Aromatherapy is the treatment of both psychological and physical illness by the use of essential oils. Essential oils are derived from herbs, roots, flowers, barks and resins and should not be applied directly to the skin without first mixing with carrier oil, such as emu oil. Because emu oil is readily absorbed by the skin and is an excellent carrier, the body absorbs the essential oils quickly. Aromatherapy is used in two ways, in application to the body and in inhalation. The essential oils penetrate the body either through the skin or the lungs to stimulate new cellular growth or enhance emotions.

In 1982, when major players in the perfume industry got together and created the Olfactory Research Fund. The term Aroma-Chology® was then created. Where Aromatherapy is
based largely on anecdotal results, Aroma-chology® is based on systematic, scientific data collected under controlled conditions. Through studies funded by the Olfactory Research Fund (grants are made to clinical psychologist in colleges and universities) clinical proof has been established that a variety of specific feelings are elicited through odors via stimulation of the olfactory pathways to the limbic system of "pleasure center" of the brain. In other words, Aroma-chology® substantiates much of what Aromatherapy is all about.  Scientific evidence indicates that what we smell can elevate our mood, reduce stress, heighten sensuality, boost our energy and alertness and just plain make us feel good!

When using essential oils, remember that they
should never be applied directly to the skin. Always
dilute in a carrier oil, such as emu oil.  Try these recipes and experiment with your own.
