In aromatherapy, aromatic molecules, or the active ingredients in essential oils, interact with the nasal cavity when inhaled through the nose. Next, these molecules make their way up to the brain at the limbic system, which controls the activity of the endocrine and nervous systems. The brain then transmits these molecules to the organ systems. The endocrine system, which is in charge of hormonal release, carries these molecules as hormones are released to the bloodstream and in turn, the molecules are circulated to different parts of the body with the blood. The nervous system, when doused with aromatic molecules, sends messages to its nerve receptors to slow down, subsequently creating stress relief.

Vitamin A actually increases the deposition of collagen; therefore it slows the normal aging breakdown of your collagen and elastin. It is considered a thorough exfoliator, and this repeated shedding of the upper dermal layer forces the skin to produce new cells and stimulate collagen production.

Vitamin D plays an integral role in skin protection and rejuvenation.
In its active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth, repair, and metabolism. It optimizes the skin’s immune system and helps destroy free radicals that can cause premature aging.
Topical vitamin D application can exert a protective and rejuvenating effect on aging skin.
Increase cell turn-over and regeneration in the outer layers of the skin. Topical application of beta-carotene can enhance the appearance of the skin by restoring suppleness and adding a “glowing” pigment that seemingly evens out the skin tone.
