4. Your Sense of Smell Affects You More Than You Think
Scent works almost directly with our brains.
When we detect an aroma, it connects with the parts of our brain that controls hormones, behavior responses & mood management. A bad mood is like a cocktail of emotions sent by your brain.
These emotions tell your body to feel & act a certain way.
With essential oils, these reactions can be influenced for more positive outcomes like mood elevation, improved focus, & balancing emotions!
5. Fragrance Oils Aren’t Essential Oils
There are many products out there that claim to be natural but are actually synthetic fragrances.
There's a stark difference between the two.
Real essential oils are naturally a more expensive option to source. As they use raw plant extracts made from the bulk cold-pressing of flowers, barks, roots, peels & other parts of the plant.
Fragrance oils on the other hand, are a mystery blend of undisclosed chemicals. This can be problematic as many of them are irritating to the skin & can potentially lead to serious health problems.
