2. To Relax
Essential Oils are a great way to experience the benefits of aromatherapy, as they are simply a mixture of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory, or smell, receptors in the nose.
Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response. The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
The doTERRA Yoga Essential Oils Collection is a great option to diffuse and be able to unwind and relax at home while practicing yoga, meditation or mindfulness... or simply reading a good book.
