Have you ever wondered why the scent of mint stimulates your mind, or why inhaling lavender is calming? According to the National Institutes of Health, when we breathe in essential oils, they stimulate smell receptors in the nose that send chemical messages through nerves to the brain's limbic system, which affects moods and emotions, and they may even have physical benefits. (Pass the geranium oil, please!)
Always on the lookout for ways to increase wellness, Aruba Aloe developed its Desert Bloom Collection in 2009. Enriched with 100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel from Aruba, this premium collection is blended with carefully selected organic essential oils and herbal extracts from Egypt that have positive effects on psychological and physical wellness.
