Smells are handled by the olfactory bulb, the structure in the front of the brain that sends information to the other areas of the body's central command for further processing.
Experts discuss the science of smell and how scent, emotion and memory are intertwined and exploited. Odors take a direct route to the limbic system, including the amygdala and the hippocampus, the regions related to emotion and memory.
Inhaling essential oils is the fasted route into the body for essential oils. When you breathe in essential oil vapours and odours the molecules are absorbed by the hairs inside your nostrils that have receptors, these then send a signal to your into the olfactory bulb in your limbic system
When inhaled,the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.
