Essential oils & Hormones

Essential oils through their fragrance and unique molecular structure can directly stimulate the limbic lobe and the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsive to olfactory stimuli. Not only can inhalation of essential oils be used to combat stress and emotional trauma, but it can also stimulate the production of hormones from the hypothalamus. This results in increased thyroid hormones (our energy hormone) and growth hormones (our youth and longevity hormone).
