The Unexpected Sensory Power of Smell: Now Scientific Proof Physical Well-Being
Scents have a power to persuade; And they can do it in a way that is stronger than that of words, emotions, appearances or even will.
A scent can’t be fended off; it enters into our very souls, like the breath that enters our lungs. It fills us, imbues us and strengthens us. It is the very essence of our soul.
The power of smell is one of the oldest human faculties, but it is one of the last to be understood by science. It is only in the last 20 years that science has been able to understand the olfactory receptors, the chemicals and the ensuing emotions that our noses bring to us.
In the last decade, the research into olfactory senses that won the Nobel Prize in the early 1990s has expanded. Now scientists have discovered that odor receptors are not just confined to the nose but also have a positive or negative effect on other organs and functions in the body, such as the liver, the heart, kidneys and even sperm. It plays a vital role even in our skin. This is why aromatherapy and the use of essential oils and essential oil diffusers have such a pivotal role in human health.
Today research has found that exposing the skin to certain scents sets off a molecular change that induces healing.
This makes aromatherapy a crucial element in our health, and of course natural essential oils such as orange, lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary and spearmint so dear to those who know.
Essential oils have been revered for at least 5,000 years, and many of the ancients even wrote medical guides, expounding on the benefits of oils like lavender, spearmint, peppermint and sandalwood. These lend restorative properties to the body, spirit and mind.
