Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils that have been distilled from plants. Distillation has been in use for over a thousand years. Theoretically, aromatherapy dates back as far as the first human enjoying the fragrance of a flower.
Essential oils, when inhaled, stimulate the olfactory bulb and the limbic system. This is considered the oldest part of the brain, and has a direct relationship to emotional memory. A quick inhalation can have immediate effects.
Here at Sun & Moon Dispensary, aromatherapy is used as inhalation, or topical application. When applied topically, essential oils are always diluted in a carrier oil or water. We do not use or recommend essential oils to be taken internally.
