Can Aroma Therapy Help Heal Your Brain and Body Now?
Why are smells so invigorating? What we smell can be pleasant, enjoyable, and tell you that good food is near by. The aroma of perfumes can make you feel more romantic. Most of us recoil when we smell something toxic, pungent or irritating to our nose. So certain smells can have a very powerful healing affects on different parts of the body and brain.
Unlike other senses of sight, hearing, touch, movement, the sense of smell is hard wired directly into the big boss, the cerebral cortex in the brain. This means the energy of healing gets directed into the higher levels of the brain. This message of healing then is directed to the substance you eat, smell or put on your body will affect the healing in your brain and body.
I remember reading an article when I first start leaning about healing methods back in the 1970’s where researchers had used a small piece of food that was radiated with short life radio isotope to trace where the food went as it was used in the body. This radiated food then was placed in the persons mouth:
The first place the radio isotope showed up from the food before it left the mouth was in the top part of the brain, the cerebral cortex.
The second place that isotope showed up even before the food was out of the mouth was where the food would be used to help repair different body parts.
The third place the trace of that isotope showed up was in the stomach long before the food left the mouth, and before the food would be digested.
The sense of smell also acts as a screening device that can help you in selecting substances that have healing elements in their smells. Essential oils are residues of groups of special plants that have been distilled down to a concentrated liquid form that you can use safely on different part of your body. Each of the oils has different therapeutic effects!
Example of several oils that can help you change the afternoon slump instead of drinking coffee, soft drinks or other stimulants. Use a few drops of peppermint rubbed into your hands and then hold your hand over your nose area. Breathing this in for a minute or so wakes you up! Makes your mind sharper! You will get more focused without the side effects a drinking a soda high and then sugar crash. Where drinking a cup of coffee dehydrated the water out of my system, with the peppermint oil you don’t have any side effects. . . Drinking an alcoholic beverage gets you so relaxed you don’t get anything done the rest of the afternoon.
Using one drop of peppermint in your hands and smelling that aroma, can mean you get another 3-4 hours of focused work without the side effects.
Often sitting behind a desk as many people do these days, and not getting much exercise there must be a short term remedy for the confining restriction on your body as it complains with aches and pains? Essential Oil Marjoram can be one answer! How could this help you! Here is what has been reported as helping people with a few these conditions:, Hand-Arthritis, Cramps, Muscles aches and pain, Stress, Neuralgia, Sprains, Muscle Tension, Muscle Spasms, and even the effects of Whiplash, are helped with Marjoram.
In today’s fast paced society at lunch many go to a fast food restaurants. They grab a quick sandwich or salad, gulp it down and then go back to work thinking they got enough energy from the food they ate to carry them the rest of the day. Many people have indigestion from the stress of getting the food they ate and don’t have time to rest awhile before going back to work. The effects of the rush rush catches up with you as added stress and poor health. Cloves is an old remedy that I got as kid when I had teeth problems, tension headaches, nausea, pinched nerves, aches or pains, or any kind of infection the cloves helped pull those toxins out of my body. This is especially true with a tooth ache.
So the sense of smell and taste play a vital role with the top part of the brain to direct the healing properties of foods, vitamins, essential oils and other substances that are used to help the body heal and repair itself naturally. Essential oils and herbs have been used by the Chinese, and Egyptian civilizations for thousands of years safely without side effects.
