Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: January 27, 2014 is ‘Remembrance of Fragrance Past’.
REMEMBRANCE OF FRAGRANCE PAST
Memories are in our cells, or in the spaces between them, or in their electromagnetic field, or their aura. Cellular memory has long been reported by bodyworkers, such as: Aromatherapists, reflexologists, rolfers, and shiatus, kinesiology, acupressure, and connective tissue massage therapists, among others. During bodywork, when certain parts of the body are being manipulated, earlier events in this life, and in some cases “past” lives, are often released and recalled.
Aroma and memory are, of course, inextricably linked. The pathway for this in physical terms is from the nose, to the olfactory nerves, to the limbic system and other portions of the brain. Olfactory nerves are actually part of the brain, extending from it into the nasal cavity, where they meet aroma molecules, via receptors. Nothing gets closer to the brain than aroma. The brain is an ongoing system, producing neurochemicals that have receptors on cells in all parts of the body, a continuum with undefined borders. Aroma induces the release of brain chemical, and thus can affect the whole body.
In addition, from pictures of the auric field of aromas, in the form of essential oils, we can see they have a colorful dynamism that interacts with the auric field of a person. Aromas, then, are unique in being the on physical/etherical element that appears to reach all parts of our body and, perhaps, all parts of our spirit.
Next we will take a look at ‘The Aroma-Genera Experience’.
