    Let's get the basics right first. Do you know what exactly are Mood elevator oils


    The Mood elevators offer a respite for stressed-out souls with a range of essential oils to lift you out of the doldrums and help you look forward with a newfound, positive attitude.

    Next, how do these scents affect your mood?

    The Mood elevator oils can either be inhaled or applied to skin.

    It turns out that your sense of smell is the most powerful of all your five senses. In fact, the deep limbic center—the part of your brain that controls your emotions is connected to your olfactory system, which means that different scents can affect your mood or evoke certain memories and emotions. 

    When inhaled, odor molecules travels through the nose and affect the brain, through a variety of receptor, one of which is the limbic system.

    When mood elevator oil is applied to the skin, their healing components are absorbed into the blood stream by the pores and hair follicles.

    Let's begin!
