Have you ever wondered why certain smells trigger emotions or memories?
Whether something we have smelled before or something new, there are three major factors when we experience a scent: The Olfactory Bulb, the Amygdala, and the Hippocampus.
The Olfactory Bulb is in simplest terms our smell receptor, this is the part of our brain that processes odors from the nasal cavity. There are direct lines from the Olfactory Bulb to the Amygdala and the Hippocampus. The Amygdala is our brain’s emotional center located in the cerebral hemisphere and the Hippocampus, located in the temporal lobe, plays a major role in both learning and memory.
Aroma Freedom is a technique that uses pure essential oils and proven psychological principles to trigger the Olfactory, Amygdala, and Hippocampus.
It has been discovered that by using the combination of feelings, thoughts, sensations, and imagination while smelling specific Young Living essential oils can provide relief to the memory and emotional complex of individuals. This allows the person to become liberated from the emotional effects of negative experiences in their past. But it does not stop there, this technique can be used for goal setting, stress reduction, relief from painful memories, and overall mental and emotional balance.
Dr. Lisa recently began offing this technique as one of the services in our office. We have seen many individuals greatly benefit from Aroma Freedom Technique, including ourselves. If this is something that interests you or you feel you can benefit from, please give us a call. Aroma Freedom is one of our services that has the ability to be done through virtual appointments. If you don’t have your own Young Living essential oils at home, we will send you the ones you’ll need prior to your appointment.
Thank You and Stay Healthy!
