Aromatherapy against viral infections

Aromatherapy against viral infections


In this period of widespread viral infections, aromatherapy, and in particular the use of essential oils, can help reduce or in certain circumstances eliminate the possibility of infection, as well as helping relieve symptoms and restoring the body.


How do essential oils work?


Essential oils penetrate our body in three different ways:


through the skin;

by inhalation;

by ingestion (following precisely qualified medical instruction and adhering to cautions / restrictions) 

The most popular and easy to apply method is inhalation or inhalation.


Essential oils can be evaporated into the air using a diffuser, alternatively ultrasonic, spray or oil droplets placed on a cloth or cotton cloth.


In addition to aromatising, they also provide respiratory disinfection, unclog the nose and relieve breathing also positively impacting our psycho-emotional state.


Inhaled through nose, aromatic molecules of the essential oils interact with the olfactory organs and reach the brain almost instantly. They also reach the lungs, which are connected to the bloodstream - so the molecules are delivered directly into the bloodstream. It is this quick and short way of healing aromas to the body that makes it possible to improve a person's health or mood.
