However, here are 72 actionable ways human beings can immediately benefit from aromatherapy and essential oils today.

Here’s a Quick and Easy Explanation of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a natural, non-invasive, alternative medicine that uses fragrant/aromatic essential oils that are derived from different medicinal plants, flowers, herbs, roots and trees grown all over the world – which have proven (objectively and subjectively), powerful effects on improving physical, emotional and spiritual well-being for thousands of years. When inhaled or applied to the skin, therapeutic-grade essential oils have been shown to affect the whole person not just the symptoms or disease. It holistically assists the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils. Aromatherapy is only one of many effective, natural and holistic alternatives for promoting and supporting emotionally, mentally, spiritually healthy living.

Why and How Human Beings Positively Benefit from Aromatherapy

The inhalation of essential oils can directly influence the body, mind and spirit by stimulating the Limbic system (emotional-mammalian brain) in the human brain. According to the Essential Oils Pocket Reference, the sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the emotional control center (Limbic Lobe). Reacting to destructive emotions releases chemicals into your brain and body that neutralize your ability to think and function clearly. Although the goal here is not to eliminate emotions and control thoughts, there is so much scientific research that supports the advantages of experiencing emotions and then allowing emotions to pass through you in a balanced healthy way. Clinging to destructive emotions gives birth to all manner of negativity including depression, anxiety, stress to name a few.

The use of essential oils and aromatherapy is a gentle non-invasive method to immediately redirect the signals of the Limbic system and release destructive emotions. The Limbic-system is a connected collection of brain parts that manage emotions and bodily functions. For example, anger, fear, eating, hunger, thirst, smell, arousal, aggression, pleasure, pain, response to sensory information, to name a few.

Another explanation of the Limbic system is in a video done by Khan University:
- Hypothalamus: hormone regulator, controls the stress response, sends signals from hormonal glands and receives information from body;
- Hippocampus: center of short and long term, memory, recognition, learning, rewards vs punishment, focus, motor control, sense of direction;
- Amygdala: “fight or flight” control, fear, anxiety, anger, violence center.

Basically the inhalation of certain essential oils can help dissipate emotional negativity that would otherwise cause disease and trauma. Challenge yourself to develop your own personal customized program for cleansing, balance and support.

Most of these 72 experiences are created by sending chemical signals to the limbic emotional brain via essential oil compounds. The chemical composition of essential oils assists in shifting the emotional brain away from sending messages that trigger the excessive release of hormones that have a degrading effect on the body and mind.

There are several excellent books and videos that you can find on the internet for using essential oils to assist your body in healing itself.
