There are many essential oils that can help to alleviate some of the stresses and strains of modern day living. The link between the olfactory system and the psyche are well known and because of this, it is clear that pleasant smells tend to lift mood

Odours and there emotional response take place at a very deep level and are often rooted in early memories in childhood such as the smell of  your mother’s  perfume or the smell of garden herbs used in cooking such as coriander, rosemary, ginger. This aroma – emotion reaction appears to take place at an unconscious level, which it why it is always to choose essential oils used in aromatherapy with great care in order to receive the full psychological benefit.
