We live in a stress-filled world and most feel they are constantly under pressure. Chronic stress can be damaging to the body as well as cause complications with emotions and mental health. Periodic stress can help us be productive such as when we have a new job interview or are performing a piano recital.

How Essential Oils Help Fight Stress
When essential oils are inhaled, the fragrant molecules pass through the brain or blood barrier. This allows them to have a direct effect on the areas of the brain that is in charge of controlling stress and anxiety. It can also help with feelings of panic or depression. They work because the olfactory nerve takes in the fragrance and it enters the skull through little holes directly connected to the brain. Once the fragrance reaches the nerves signals are sent to various parts of the brain including the amygdala and the limbic system. These are in charge of our moods, memory and emotions as well as regulating the nervous system. Our nervous system triggers the fight-or-flight response, raises blood pressure and speeds up our breathing when we are stressed out. Using appropriate scents can trigger physical reactions in the body and can have the same effect as anti-anxiety medications.
