The following information may help you understand why inhaling
The Breath of Life compact works.
The olfactory system includes all physical organs or cells relating to, or contributing to, the sense of smell. When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain.
Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth are also carried to the lungs and interact with the respiratory system. Thus, inhaled essential oils and herbs can affect the body through several systems and pathways.
During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the "emotional brain." The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions.
The compact contains a unique blend of organic dried herbs and pure essential oils designed specifically to assist with emotional distress and help breathing during times of respiratory illness.
Knowing this, we can see how inhalation of The Breath of Life can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!
