Massage Essential Oils
The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. When you inhale massage essential oils molecules the messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system. Massage Essential Oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin to further enhance their effect.
Each Massage Essential Oil has different healing properties. For example, some will calm while others can energize. At Lemongrass House Massage only the best aromatherapy oils are used. Here are some of the varieties of aromatherapy oils used at Lemongrass House Massage and their properties:
