Since ancient times, understanding the power of plants is coveted knowledge in the art of healing, especially through aromatherapy based on the use of essential oils. More recently, Aromachology has been interested, in turn, by the key role of odors on our attitude and spirit. From soothing lavender to invigorating lemon, without forgetting rosemary to promote concentration, there are many precious scents capable of influencing our being in everyday life.

These different effects result from the journey of these multiple fragrances throughout the limbic system. The true seat of emotions, this part of the brain deals with the subconscious, but also with memory. Does the scent and taste of Proust’s famous madeleines suffice to plunge us into our childhood memories?

An olfactory experience that, beyond its influence on behavior, could have a preventive action over the balance of the body; reducing fatigue, stiffness or eliminating fighting against stress, these wonderful fragrances are rich in a thousand virtues. Are you ready to let yourself be carried by the power of plants?
