The diagram below illustrates the Olfactory System within the body. Scent travels through the nostrils up the tract into the Olfactory bulb. Here it is sent directly to the centre of the brain, the Limbic System. It is processed and various neuro-chemicals are released. These can be relaxing, stimulating or sedative depending on the properties of the oils.
