The nervous system consists of the brain, the spinal cord and a complex network of nerves throughout the body. In addition to generating thoughts and feelings, the nervous system processes information received through the senses. It regulates unconscious body processes and allows the brain to control the body’s movements.
When you touch a hot surface, your nervous system communicates the painful sensation of burning to your brain, which then tells your hand to quickly pull away. Without your nervous system, you would not be able to reason, understand language, think, see, taste, smell or feel.
The nervous system can easily be disturbed. Essential oils can support a healthy nervous system. * Imbalance of the nervous system can contribute to head tension, discomfort, feelings of anxiety or stress and many other daily discomforts.
There are many parts of the nervous system. The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord. This part of the nervous system receives information from your senses, stores memories and generates thoughts and emotions. When you have mostly peaceful and happy thoughts, you experience more fulfillment in your life. There are many essential oils that positively affect mood, such as mint and citrus oils. The blends from the Emotional Aromatherapy Kit can help you deal with negative emotions and create a more positive space, allowing you to refocus on your goals.
The autonomic nervous system regulates functions that you do not consciously control, such as heart rate, immune system, breathing and blood pressure. Several stress-related disorders are associated with increased measurements of these vital signs. The AromaTouch Technique is designed to bring balance and calm to the entire body by positively affecting the autonomic nervous system.
Essential oils traditionally used to create balance or calm are Lavender, Bergamot, Cilantro, Frankincense, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Basil, Copaiba, Vetiver and Wild Orange.
