The limbic system is a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain that controls basic emotions, behavior, long-term memory, and smell. When we smell something it’s our limbic system that stores and then interprets the emotional significance of an aroma. This is why an essential oil can instantly trigger a behavioral response in our body and why certain aromas put us on guard while others calm us down.
Essential oils are concentrated, hydrophobic liquids (liquids that are incapable of combining with or dissolving in water), containing aroma compounds extracted from plants. It’s important to know that not all essential oil products are high quality. Beekley Medical® is committed to using essential oils that are 100% authentic and free of pesticides and synthetics. In order to verify therapeutic-quality, an independent lab tests each of our essential oils to ensure purity.
Aromatherapy is the use and application of pure essential oils to promote physical, psychological, and emotional balance. Each essential oil has a unique effect such as soothing queasiness, rejuvenating, calming, etc.
Fragrances, which might smell good, are manufactured scents that can include synthetics, pesticides, or other harmful substances and as such do not provide the same therapeutic benefits as aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy as an alternative holistic intervention is not new, however, current methods including oils applied to cotton balls and diffusers can be messy to use and subject to inconsistencies. As a result, the desired impact can vary from day to day and patient to patient.
