Aromatherapy instead of medications?
In recent years, interest in the science sector such as aromatherapy has grown significantly worldwide. Someone selflessly tries to prove that aromatherapy is something of a kind of exoteric, occult powers, slightly casting off sorcery and shamanism. Many experts say that it should be regarded as a separate branch of medicine and predict a very promising future for it. For a long time, aromatherapy has received such an abundance of positive and negative characteristics, so overgrown with speculation and prejudice, that the majority of people know nothing about it at all.
Meanwhile, with the help of aromatherapy it is possible to prevent certain diseases or to affect beneficially the already existing diseases. Of course, in no case can we not say that aromatherapy is a panacea, and with the help of essential oils you can cure everything. This is not true. But not to take into account the effects of essential oils is simply impossible. Specialists distinguish the following types of action:
Psycho-emotional impact of essential oils
In this case, it is about the effect on the nervous system of the human body. Very often, the cause of this or that disease is the stress that accompanies our rapid pace of life. To date, there is no more effective means of getting rid of stress than aromatherapy and psychotherapy. Essential oils significantly increase the production of hormones of happiness - endorphins, and, for example, juniper and geranium oils have a unique ability to directly affect stress hormones.
