Does Aromatherapy work for people without their sense of smell? – Δουλευει η Αρωματοθεραπεια για ατομα που εχουν χασει την αισθηση της οσφρησης;

Many people believe that Aromatherapy, because of its name and its connection to smell, benefits only those people who can smell. Of course, this is a normal misunderstanding, but it is only that; A misunderstanding!

Essential oils contain chemical substances that go into the blood circulation and therefore affect the whole body and its functions. The chemical substances reach the brain and affect the nervous system, having all these qualities on our psychology and even physical condition. It is more pleasing and satisfying to be able to smell the essential oil, as this can add to the experience, but it is not necessary in order to be benefited by it. Especially when the essential oils are used in a massage therapy, then the effects are even more immediate! It is also really important to speak to your therapist about any allergies you may have, as these go for the oils as well. Always prefer natural essential oils.

So, next time you think of aromatherapy, don’t think it twice, no matter how strong your sense of smell is…Just relax and leave the rest to your circular and nervous system…They know what to do!

Πολλοί άνθρωποι πιστεύουν ότι η Αρωματοθεραπεία, λόγω του ονόματος και της σύνδεσής της με τη μυρωδιά, ωφελεί μόνο εκείνους τους ανθρώπους που μπορούν να μυρίσουν. Φυσικά, αυτή είναι μια φυσιολογική παρεξήγηση, αλλά είναι μόνο αυτό. Μια παρεξήγηση!

Τα αιθέρια έλαια περιέχουν χημικές ουσίες που εισέρχονται στην κυκλοφορία του αίματος και επηρεάζουν επομένως ολόκληρο το σώμα και τις λειτουργίες του. Οι χημικές ουσίες φθάνουν στον εγκέφαλο και επηρεάζουν το νευρικό σύστημα, επιδρώντας στην ψυχολογία και ακόμη και στη σωματική μας κατάσταση. Είναι πιο ευχάριστο και ικανοποιητικό το να μπορείτε να μυρίσετε το αιθέριο έλαιο, καθώς αυτό μπορεί να προσθέσει στην εμπειρία, αλλά δεν είναι απαραίτητο για να ωφεληθείτε. Ειδικά όταν τα αιθέρια έλαια χρησιμοποιούνται σε μια θεραπεία μασάζ, τότε τα αποτελέσματα είναι ακόμα πιο άμεσα! Είναι επίσης σημαντικό να μιλήσετε στον θεραπευτή σας για τυχόν αλλεργίες που μπορεί να έχετε, καθώς αυτές ισχύουν και για τα έλαια. Πάντα να προτιμάτε φυσικά αιθέρια έλαια.

Έτσι, την επόμενη φορά που θα σκεφθείτε την αρωματοθεραπεία, μην το σκεφθείτε ξανά, ανεξάρτητα από το πόσο ισχυρή είναι η όσφρησή σας…Απλά χαλαρώστε και αφήστε τα υπόλοιπα στο κυκλοφορικό και νευρικό σας σύστημα…Αυτά ξέρουν τι να κάνουν!

Στην αγάπη και στο φως πάντα,

Aromatherapy Facts made simple

Published 14 March 2018 by Eris Ilmirith

1. The two main Benefits of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy can be used in order to reduce the stress levels and provide relaxation. Either by using an oil in massage or just smell some fragrances, one can relax more easily. This is why many fragrances are used in cases of stress problems or even depression. Aromatherapy can also help prevent some illnesses, as it acts directly to both physical and psychological level. It is proven that using specific fragrances can help in specific health areas.

2. Volatile, huh?

“Volatile” means that something evaporates quickly. In the case of essential oils, the properties of the oil can be evaporated quickly due to the effects of air on them, this is why one should immediately close the bottle after use and not let the oils in direct sunlight or in high temperatures, as this can also affect the general quality of the oil.

3. Science-proven

Essential oils have antibacterial, antiseptic and germicidal properties, something that is now scientifically proven. This means that essential oils can be used in many different ways and not only as a means of relaxing or face health problems. I personally use essential oils in the house, when I want to naturally and strongly clean something and at the same time have a nice fragrance around.

4. What beneficial elements are found in essential oils?

Essential oils contain natural antibiotics and antiseptics, as well as vitamins, hormones and plant estrogren. Thet are an extremely good source of naturally enhance ourselves and the environment. They are strong and natural sources of the above, thus one will need to visit the doctor less. I also use them for my plants, when my pets or I get sick.

5. Where are essential oils found in plants?

Special cells, glands and plant hairs that are located within the plants contain the essential oils of this plant. We can extract the essential oils by the stems, leaves or even the roots of a plant. It depends on the plant type and where these cells, glands or hairs are found.

6. Why are essential oils expensive?

The price of essential oils depend on the ecological factors of weather, climate and soil quality. These factors affect the quality of the oil and thus its price. Moreover, extracting the oils is a procedure that is difficult and costs much. There are also specific plants or flowers whose essential oil is very expensive, because a big quantity of the plant is needed, a small amount of oil can be extracted by a whole plant, or the plant is so sensitive that it can be destroyed during extraction. For example, rose oil is very expensive because of these reasons.
