Think of a time a smell has reminded you of something. Perhaps your favourite place, a loved one or even a childhood memory. This is because the sense of smell is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. Of our five senses, four of them: sight, touch, hearing, and taste, go through interpretive areas of the brain. They’re filtered. But when you smell, tiny molecules drift high up into the nose to receptors linked directly to the olfactory bulb and a primitive part of the brain associated with emotions and memory. This provides a subconscious, unfiltered link between strong memories and aromas. Which explains why certain scents can trigger emotional and even physical responses, prompting vivid memory recall of people and places.
Combining the Power of the Subconscious Mind with Aromatherapy
Within my practice, I’m able to create a truly immersive experience, by combining the powerful effects of essential oils on the mind with complimentary therapies such as hypnotherapy, meditation and massage, to enhance their beneficial effects and help my clients to achieve an intensely deep state of hypnosis or relaxation.
Your chosen aromatherapy blend from the shop can be combined with any of these therapeutic practices to create a truly immersive wellbeing experience that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home. To find out more about the many benefits of hypnotherapy, or if you'd like some advise as to which blend is the perfect choice for you, please feel free to get in touch and I'll be happy to help.
