Anyone entering your house is unconsciously hit by its smell.
This first impression remains in the memory for ever and will
have a determinant part in the opinion they form of your house
and of yourself.
Perfuming the spaces where we live, our house,
our working place, our car is a natural necessity because the
smells by which we are surrounded in nature are necessary for
our psychological balance, for our mental activity and for our
Aromatherapy is based on the study of the wonderful
substances that are essential oils. Psycho-aromatherapy is the
field of research that studies the stimulation of the endocrine
system with odors and their effect on the nervous system.
Psychology of smell or olfactory psychology
makes us enter in the mysterious and unexplored world of our
emotional responses to smells, determined by our personal, cultural
and genetic olfactory memories.
The environmental aromatherapy consists in
consciously spreading natural fragrances in order to obtain
chosen effects on ourselves and on others, both on the physical
and on the psychological level.
Diffusing the essences of the plant kingdom
in our environment can awake in us primordial emotions, their
odor acts upon our nervous system activating the glands that
regulate homeostasis and they purify our environment of microbes,
fungi, and insects.
The most surprising aspect of aromatherapy
is that our nose instinctively likes the essences which have
upon us a benefic effect both on the physical and psychological
level. This observation verified daily by practitioners of aromatherapy
is at the origin of the first rule for practicing aromatherapy:
do not cure a person with an essence whose smell she does not
like. It is really the discovery of this remarkable instinctive
knowledge dormant in all of us that has given birth to
the most enthralling aspect of aromatherapy: the perfumetherapy.
Therefore trust your nose and with only four
or five different essences you can not only change the perfume
of your home according to the need, but compose each and everyday
a new melody of smells mixing them in the diffuser according
to how you feel.
The fragrances of "The perfumed home"
are those which respond to the most common situations found
in daily life where aromatherapy can be of great help. Not only
do they allow the perfumes of nature into our house but they will help improve the quality
of our lives.
