We work from a therapeutic palette, selecting each oil in the right percentage to truly deliver the specific benefit you want to achieve.
Multiple scientific research has supported that during inhalation, odour molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system - commonly referred to as the "emotional brain." It is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. Whatever blend you breathe in will have almost immediate physiological and psychological effects to help you feel your best. Check out our blog on the link between neuroscience and aromatherapy.
A simple morning pick-me-up has wellbeing effects on your mind & body to last the day
Inhaling essential oils activates the hypothalamus – the area of the brain which sends messages to other parts of the body. A simple inhalation of an essential oil blend can cause many changes in the body, including activating the immune system, affecting blood pressure and altering your emotions. Whether you need a morning pick-me-up, extra inspiration during work hours, or a way to de-stress and focus, aromatherapy offers long-lasting emotional and physical support from day to night.
Pioneers of aromatherapy, Aromatherapy Associates London, were some of the first to study the benefits of pure essential oils. Their 30 years of experience creating exacting blends have made them the go-to for those serious about health and well-being. Found in homes and luxury spas around the world, they are now the exclusive aromatherapy brand for Aera.
