How to increase your sleep by 2-4 hours using aromatherapy
Did you know that your sense receptors for smell are the only ones that feed directly on to your brain?
Your olfactory system consists of the parts of your body that react to smell. As you inhale different smells, the molecules from the scent cause a reaction on the limbic system in your brain. This is the part of our brain that controls behavioral and emotional responses to things in your body. This includes, emotion, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress and hormone balance.
This is why certain smells can evoke different feelings or memories. In the same way, use of essential oils can help to trigger different feelings and states of mind. As a completely natural option, it is a great way to help relieve stress, boost your mood, calm your breathing and help you sleep better.
Aromatherapy has been proven to help with a myriad of problems including, fatigue, headaches, stress, anxiety, menopausal and menstrual problems, muscular aches and sleep problems.
