Pure Aromatherapy / Essential Oil, Scents.
The Four Elements; Earth, Water, Air & Fire
Aromatherapy goes back thousands of years. Extracted from plants, flowers and trees. I will never forget my first experience with the powerful, essential oils. I always had many allergies growing up and an immune intolerance to synthetic fragrance. Back in the mid-eighties I was introduced to Aromatherapy. I will never forget the instant relief I experienced from my first whiff of the soothing, aromatherapy essential oils. I felt my mood and body were lifted to an exalted place outside of my normal reality, as if ancient memories were nourishing my thoughts to a more expansive state of being.
Enlightened by this aromatic experience; freeing my mind, heart and body, I was hooked and many years later I enthusiastically took the challenge to translate one of nature’s most powerful gifts; the aromatherapy essential oils, into a synergistic, olfactory tool, designed to support us by releasing our emotional burdens and increase harmonious vitality, by way of scent.
I am excited to share with you the "Essential Elemental Essences" (aromatherapy fragrances). Essential Elemental Essences help by balancing one (or more) of the four natural elements that may be lacking in our daily experience: (Earth, Air, Water & Fire) through aromatherapy blended scents.
Why? I wanted to know; does our olfactory system play such a powerful role regarding our creativity, well-being and our mood. One of the many things I have gained in my research regarding this knowledge is; When breathing in the pure essential oils, air born molecules interact with the olfactory organs, moving through the nose to a variety of receptor sites. Initiating us to feel substantial results.
There is a reason as to why this method is called, "aroma-therapy". Our sense of smell is the quickest way to affect our moods and emotions. There are scent receptors on every organ in the body, as you inhale the pure essential oils, the aromatic molecules travel to the olfactory bulbs which are linked directly to the emotional limbic system, (the source of emotion in the human brain.) Thus, the pure aromas are the quickest way to affect and uplift our emotions. Truly remarkable!
