TO KNOW MORE
Smell is an important way of communicating with the environment. The system has a unique nervous plasticity, as it is constantly developing throughout life.
Humans can smell between four and ten thousand different scents, with one receptor for each kind of smell in our brain, reaching 12 million. Our smell receptors are attuned to the physical and chemical properties of the odorants, stimulating the nervous system, causing changes in the metabolism of the brain, and affecting emotions, desires and memories.
What is the process of smell or "sniffing" like?
The inhaled air carries volatile odorant molecules to the olfactory epithelium (which is mucous), located at the roof of the two nasal cavities of the nose. At one end, receptor cells are located, and the other end contains specific connections that convey to the nerve cells of the olfactory bulb.
The olfactory epithelium has a low viscosity that helps to transport and concentrate the odorants in the sensory receptor cells, so that they amplify the "chemical signal" and it is transmitted to the nervous system (olfactory bulb) where it is decoded as "an odour". The olfactory bulb is responsible for processing the signals it receives from the receptors and transmitting this information to other parts of the brain.
Why use Essential Aromas in olfactory training?
If we look back in history, the use of essential aromas dates back to prehistoric man, who discovered the pleasant and healthy smell of burning certain plants. This is mainly due to the mixture of volatile components such as terpenes and phenylpropanoids, which associated with each specific kind of plant have proven and valid properties for olfactory and general wellbeing.
