    Aromatherapy works in one of three ways:

    1. Inhalation–The quickest effect, essential oils work their way into the brain quickly. Here many aspects of the limbic system are affected in a positive manner (heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, memory, stress and hormoning leveling).
    2. Topical–Used when applied directly to the skin, allowing the oils to make its way into the body via hair follicles. This helps to eliminate toxins from the body (however, most times the oils should be diluted beforehand).
    3. Oral–This should be done with care as some oils may be toxic to directly ingest. Some that are most commonly orally ingested are done so in mouth wash.
