While scientists and psychologists have studied emotions for hundreds of years, this area of the human framework is still rather mysterious. Despite the confusing nature of human emotions,
it is clear that they can directly in uence our well-being and quality of life. Throughout history, essential oils have been found to trigger responses that can alter mood. Using pure essential oils, comprehensive research, and scienti cally formulated blends, Our company has created the Emotional AromatherapyTM System to provide users with unique emotional health benefits.
Aromatherapy (the use of essential oils and plant extracts) has been a subject of interest for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and Indians used essential oils for rituals and religious practices, recognizing the oils’ ability to in uence human feelings. Even with this rich history of aromatherapy, the term wasn’t o cially coined until the 20th century, and it took many years for the scienti c community to recognize the emotional bene ts of aromatherapy. After substantial research in the 1990s, biologists began to more fully understand how chemical sensors in the body respond to the e ects of scent. This research has opened many minds to a concept that ancient civilizations discovered long ago: aromatherapy can have a remarkable e ect on human emotion and mood.
