HOBART, IN (Vocus) June 8, 2010
Botanic Choice has added ten more essential oils to its existing aromatherapy products. While aromatherapy is increasingly popular, many Americans still miss out on the numerous health benefits essential oils can bring like increased energy, relaxation, and greater concentration.
Dr. Karen Yale, Chiropractic Physician, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist and health advisor to Botanic Choice, explains the relationship between the sense of smell and health benefits saying, “Because the olfactory nerve is right in front of the brain, it sends messages immediately and directly to it. Once an aroma is encountered, it’s committed to memory and attached to an emotion. For example, cinnamon can evoke pleasant holiday memories or lilac brings thoughts of spring.”
Essential oils are typically used in a massage and combined with a carrier oil like Jojoba, Sweet Almond or Grapeseed Oil or they are used in ceramic rings, simmering potpourri, candle or soap-making. The health benefits are absorbed through the skin and/or inhaled through the olfactory nerves.
