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.

A professional aromatherapist is able to safely blend essential oils tailored to the individual in order to get a treatment designed especially for them. These oils can be used in many ways such as in creams, lotions, shampoo and conditioners. They can also be absorbed by the body via inhalations, hot and cold compresses and of course through massage therapy.

A full consultation is carried out at the first appointment to ensure safe practice of the oils.
