Essential Oils are no longer just for new age hippies. They are for anyone who is willing to better their health and gain long lasting benefits. Science now shows us that aromatherapy is actually good for us. All you have to do is find the right essential oils for whatever it is that’s ailing you.

How Does This Aroma Stuff Work?

When you breath in aroma steams created by essential oils, your brain’s hypothalamus activates. This area of the brain controls hormones, energy, and drive. Different oils trigger different responses in the hypothalamus and in turn, tells your nervous system to chill out or take action.

New findings in the medical field for aromatherapy are very promising. One of the first things we have learned is that, you should never breath in aromatherapy for more than an hour at a time. Also, if you suffer from any chronic health conditions, you should consult your doctor before trying aromatherapy.

First, you’ll need a diffuser. This is the best and most effective way to mix the oils into the air. Diffusers run anywhere from $25 to $200. You could also try dripping oil into a container filled wit steaming water, just after boiling.
