Two main methods of Aromatherapy; inhalation and application.
Both of these methods can affect the limbic system. When we inhale, the neural impulses go directly to the limbic system. The limbic system connects to all other parts of the brain and in particular to the thalamus and hypothalamus, from where our whole endocrine system is controlled the system for our mood, metabolism, digestive and the automatic nervous system, bodily functional.
For application, essential oils are often used in massage, body- and skin care. There is evidence that oils applied to the skin enter the bloodstream. Whether the effect will be calming and cooling, warming and invigorating, toning to the uterus or tonic to the liver depends upon the chemistry of each oil.
