Aromatherapy Science

How it Works

Essential oils are highly concentrated, extremely volatile components of various plant tissues of a plant species. The therapeutic properties of essential oils are the result of all the constituents working together. But how do they create a benefit?

An emerging body of scientific research now confirms that the inhalation of aromatic vapors triggers the olfactory bulb which immediately sends a neuro-chemical signal to neural receptors within the limbic system The limbic system is a convenient way of describing several functionally interconnected nuclei and structures located in the forebrain that trigger responses in other systems within the body (the main structures are the amygadala, hippocampus, hypothalamus, and thalamus).

For instance, the limbic system supports a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, motivation and long-term memory. In addition, the limbic system supports physical health by influencing the peripheral nervous system and the endocrine system and can trigger responses within these systems as diverse as autonomic regulation of pain, appetite, digestion, respiration, sleep, wounds and many other vital body activities.

Sina uses a specific blend of essential oils in order to promote specific benefits. In fact, blending of two or more essential oils results in completely new compounds being formed, with the chemical constituents in an individual oil combining with another to have a mutually enhancing effect. The result is a more powerful therapeutic than could be obtained when oils are used individually.

Remedies By the Science 

Stop Snoring

Snoring can occur when airflow is obstructed by a narrowing point somewhere in the mouth and/or nose which causes the soft tissues to vibrate. Sina Originals Stop Snoring has been formulated to address some of the key snoring “triggers”. It’s high cineole content helps control airway mucus hypersecretion, while the essential oils have anti-inflammatory cytokine inhibitory properties that relieve respiratory ailments (bronchitis, croup, asthma) as well as sinusitis and allergies.

Headache Relief 

Sina Originals Headache Relief remedies are formulated with essential oils that have a high menthol content which has been shown to ease headaches by triggering a cooling/numbing sensation through engaging the body’s cold sensitive receptors. In addition, menthol activates opioid receptors giving it analgesic properties. The essential oils used in the remedy also have neuro-modulating properties (5-HT1A receptor antagonist) which contribute to headache relief.

Stress Relief

Sina Originals Stress Relief remedies are formulated with essential oils that have tranquilizing effects by binding to GABA receptors resulting in an inhibitory neurotransmission effect. This results in products that have anxiolytic properties. Studies have shown that the chosen ingredients have resulted in significant increases in self-ratings of calmness and better mood. The calming aroma helps relieve stress, anxiety, and irritability.

Sleep

Sina Originals Sleep remedies are formulated with essential oils that have tranquilizing effects by binding to GABA receptors resulting in an inhibitory neurotransmission effect. This results in blends that are mild sedatives and also have anxiolytic properties. The deeply relaxing aroma of the sleep blends will help you sleep better.

 Breathe

Sina Originals Breathe remedies are formulated with essential oils that have been used for catarrh of the respiratory tract, and inflammation of the oral mucosa along with high cineole content which has been shown to control airway mucus hypersecretion. As well, the oils have anti-inflammatory cytokine inhibitory properties and have been used individually for respiratory ailments (bronchitis, croup, and asthma), sinusitis and allergies. This blend opens up the airways and helps you breath deeper.
