A Study on How Custom Essential Oils Work on Emotions:  

Did you have any idea that scents act powerfully on human emotional disorders? Yes, this is true. Among the five senses, the smelling sense in human beings is directly connected to brain, which is the center of controlling human emotions. This further implies that scent not only can work on emotional disorders, but also a physical response of the human body. 

In fact, a recently conducted study shows that there is a connection between dementia and anti-anxiety medicines. There are good reasons to opt for essential oils as a complimentary treatment.  It is hard to know, but breathing in a nice aroma can change imbalances and chemistry of a human body that causes mood swings. 

As soon as your nose senses an aroma, it implies that small molecules have entered into the nose from something via the process of evaporation. Essential oils being volatile, their molecules soar in the air. When inhaled, the molecules are passed through the nostrils that send messages using receptors to olfactory system. These receptors again pass the messages to brain, which results in the smelling sense. 

Olfactory bulb forms a part of limbic system capturing messages via the smelling sense that helps in recording a memory further. For example, a particular aroma can remind a person of someone very special in his/her life. That is why some people believe the essential oils can really help those dealing and passing through negative and saddening memories.
