Although its name leads us to think that this concept is based only on odor, aromatherapy does not simply act on the sense of smell. The oils used in this therapy can reach the bloodstream through the skin and mucous membranes with which enzymes, hormones and the various internal organs of man can directly interact. In practice, aromatherapy works in a similar way to phytotherapy, with the difference that very concentrated essential oils act in a more potent way.
Investigations carried out recently at the University of Zarzick, in England and at the University of Tokyo, confirm the influence of odors. Once inhaled, the essential oil particles meet the cells of the olfactory sense, which identify and transmit information about the aroma to the brain.
In this stimulus phase, relaxing, stimulant or euphoric substances are produced, depending on the type of brain response to the stimulus produced.
