Discover Neuroaromatics

Neuroaromatics ™ connects the science of essential oils and their interaction with the
Nervous System. Essential oils have the ability to act as neurotransmitters and in combination with neuroplasticity, they turn into perfect olfactory anchors. These anchors are used according to Salutogenetic principles. In essence, you are utilizing an olfactory stimulus and create a meaningful attachment.


What exactly does that mean?


How can I access the full potential of my physical and mental/emotional strength and once activated, how can I keep these?

The salutogenetic approach explains how, by focusing on one`s strengths, a person is able to activate the full range of their physical, emotional and mental ressources, promote neuroplasticity and support homeostasis.

The brain functions autonomically.  It calls upon familiar patterns regardless  if they are supportive or dysfunctional; it will follow the most familiar and well-established neural pathways. This may lead to imbalances in the chemistry of the brain which may cause illness. The brain also exhibits the ability to change engrained neural connections by consciously strengthening or weakening existing ones and forming new ones by setting new impulses where they belong. This is referred to as neuroplasticity. 


Our limbic system, which also contains  our sense of smell,  has no sense of time.  Placing events in chronological order occurs later in the Hippocampus. 

It is comparable to a computer hard disk upon which huge volumes of hidden data are stored. These can neither be changed nor erased , and continue to operate in the background of our minds.  

On the contrary, new “data” can be added. This is a process that cannot be controlled at the intellectual level. Essential oils can access all of our experiences, including learned behaviors, as memories that reside in the limbic system, hippocampus, and epigenetics. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Given their unique chemical structures, essential oils fulfil this function according to a lock and key principle.  They do this by interacting with targeted neurons as needed. Through this process, new and more beneficial neural pathways are established.

Olfactory anchor

When we experience an aroma, it immediately directs itself to our cerebral cortex. Normally, sensory perception is filtered and interpreted by the thalamus. However, not in this case. As a result, our “olfactory memories” can establish direct connections with specific life experiences. These olfactory anchors can therefore be directly influenced by essential oils.  

Essential oils can influence subconscious images and memories that we have previously established by attaching themselves to specific brain receptors. Although existing connections cannot be erased, we are able to alter behavioral patterns by using olfactory anchors to create new neural pathways that change how we think and act.
