Plants, in addition to being used as decoration, are an excellent way to increase the oxygen levels in a room and improve the quality of the air we breathe.
Also, some plants are beneficial to people. They improve our mood, help us fight anxiety, depression and panic attacks. According to some researchers, there is a direct relationship between stress and oxygen levels, which is why a walk in nature relaxes us when we are stressed.
And if we go further, studies in mice confirm that the aroma of the jasmine plant and jasmine essential oil calm all those problems. Brain tests on them showed that jasmine fragrance increased the effects of a chemical called GABA on nerve cells, easing their anxiety and encouraging good rest.
According to Professor Hanns Hatt of the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, these findings published online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry can be considered as evidence of a scientific basis for aromatherapy.
This professor stated that his studies discovered a new class of GABA receptor modulator that can be administered parenterally and through the air that is breathed, and that it may have potential applications in the treatment of sedation, anxiety, arousal and aggressiveness and in therapy sleep induction.
Jasmine, better than anxiolytics
Jasmine, according to this, is 5 times more effective than sleeping pills, anxiolytics and pharmaceutical sedatives. Researchers at Wheeling Jesuit University, led by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, assistant professor of psychology, found that dispersing odor to jasmine in a room where the participants slept "led to greater sleep efficiency."
Another option is jasmine essential oil. It is a natural and effective way to improve sleep, increase happiness, regulate hormones, and treat anxiety and fatigue.
It can have all of these effects:
- Reduces anxiety and tension.
- Improves our mood.
- Causes greater cognitive performance and alertness.
- It enhances sleep quality.
- Balances hormones.
- Treat mood swings and hot flashes.
- Increases libido.
