Why Scent Makes a Difference in Emotions
When a fragrance is inhaled, the odor molecules travel up the nose where they are trapped by olfactory membranes. Each odor molecule fits like a little piece into receptor cell sites that line the membrane know as the olfactory epithelium. Each of these hundreds of millions of nerve cells is replaced every 28 days. When stimulated by odor molecules, this lining of nerve cells triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb then transmits to the gustatory center (where the sensation of taste is perceived), and other parts of the limbic system of the brain.
Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects.
The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain, the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and joy all emanate from this region. The scent of a special fragrance can evoke memories or emotions before we are even consciously aware it has happened. When smells are concerned, we react first and think later. All other senses (touch, taste, hearing and sight) are routed through the thalamus, which acts as the switchboard for the brain, passing stimuli onto the cerebral cortex (the conscious thought center) and other parts of the brain.
