Aromatherapy has been intuitively used in ancient civilisations for thousands of years to heal a number of ailments. Within our modern world, advances in technology and research have allowed us to understand how this therapy works on the human brain and emotions. It is via the olfactory system (smell) that essential oils provide their greatest benefits. When inhaled, essential oils interact with receptor cells in the nose, which transmit signals to different parts of the brain activating the central nervous system. It is here that chemicals like serotonin, endorphin and noradrenaline are released to exhibit the desired effects found in our calming and balancing oils. The organic oils within our Mellow essential oil blend have been selected to bring about balance during times of stress. The combination of lavender and cedarwood assists to calm the mind and soothe nervous tension, and the addition of sweet orange oil uplifts the blend to enhance mood and vitality. We take care in the selection of our oils to ensure they are pure, organic, and abundant with therapeutic value.
