Diffuse essential oils
Inhale directly from the bottle
Drop directly into your hands and breathe
Molecules from essential oils support our body systems when inhaled
One of the most powerful and effective ways to use essential oils is aromatically. When they are inhaled directly from the bottle*, the essential oil molecules travel through our nasal passage to the limbic brain. Our olfactory receptors are directly connected to the limbic system, the most ancient and primitive part of the brain, recognized as the center of emotion. This part of the brain controls our “fight or flight” response, memories, moods, hormone secretions, and neurochemical changes. When oils are diffused, the vapor enters through the lungs and are dispersed throughout the body. Using essential oils aromatically can also improve indoor air quality by eliminating airborne pathogens.
We use them aromatically by inhaling them directly from the bottle, putting a few drops in your hands and cupping your palms to breathe in, or by using a diffuser.
*Direct inhalation of oils is not recommended for those with asthmatic conditions. Topical application and diffusion are the safest routes for asthmatics.
