How does aromatherapy work?
While all five senses influence the way we feel throughout the day, studies have shown that the sense of smell appears to have the most impact. This is because the perception of aromas is intimately related to the functions of the brain that influence mood and emotions. This Works has developed a collection of clinically tested, functional fragrances, designed to help manage your mood and emotions throughout the day. Each blend has been studied using fMRI imaging to assess the positive impact it has on the brain and the autonomic nervous system.
