The Power of Scent - The sense of smell, olfaction, is the most immediate of our senses. The olfactory nerves lie in the upper part of the nose and are directly connected to the brain. As we inhale an aroma the scent molecules stimulate the nerve endings, which then relay messages to the brain. Smell is registered in one of the oldest parts of the brain, the Limbic System and is the only sense that has a direct link here. This part of the brain is concerned with many activities vital to survival; hunger, thirst, smell, memory, sleep, sexual response and together with the stimulation of the hypothalamus and pituitary bodies can trigger off the appropriate response to the mood initiated by the particular smell. An important function of the hypothalamus is to control our autonomic nervous system, the involuntary system, which regulates the hormonal system, digestion, heart rate, respiration, stress, fear, anger. This contributes to a number of biochemical responses occurring throughout the body linking every thought, action and emotion. The limbic system releases neurotransmitters such as endorphins creating a “sense of well-being” and are pain reducing, serotonins that help one to relax and stay calm and nor-adrenalin, which stimulates keeping one awake.
Tumeric - This spice comes from the ground root of the robust perennial herb, Curcuma longa, native to southern Asia with India being the largest producer of tumeric in the world using 90% of the crop domestically. It belongs to the ginger family and has been used for centuries as a flavouring, a dye, in cosmetics and as a medicine. Several parts of southern Asia are tropical or sub-tropical with a constant invasion of bacteria, fungi and viruses which results in high rates of bio-degradability. The sprinkling of tumeric powder is regularly used in their cuisine as a protection against innumerable tropical germs.
Asian women apply tumeric to their faceskeeping the skin clear of pimples and promoting youthful and fresh looks. It is excellent in toothpastes as it has astringent, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties and tones the gums. The phytochemical, curcumin in tumeric, is a potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. This makes tumeric a valuable spice to consider in the prevention and treatment of disorders such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
The powerful anti-oxidant properties protect the lungs from pollution and toxins. Research is revealing the chemoprotective properties of curcumin and its chelating properties in the removal of metals from the body. Tumeric plays a role in helping to prevent platelets in the blood from accumulating and sticking together which could increase the risk of a heart attack or a stroke.
Aromatherapy - The fragrance of herbs can thus affect us in many ways, sometimes subtly and other times in a more obvious way. Each person’s reaction to the fragrance, is very specific to them, and must be respected. Unhappy, mental and emotional states play a role in lowering one’s resistance to any number of physical ailments. If un-addressed, one’s health can be seriously affected. Scent has the power to make one feel relaxed, uplifted, or great. When the aroma evokes pleasurable memories endorphins are released creating the “sense of well-being” and enhancing one’s natural immunity.
Herbalism is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, is a system of healing that uses plants as medicine. A wealth of herbal knowledge has been passed down through the ages. The medicines that are used are prepared only from plant material like leaves twigs, flowers, bark, roots, seeds, resin, gums and oils. Plant medicine helps the body achieve proper health by supporting the person's own vital energy and self healing potential.
