The Art can be an alchemical tool for discovering one's soul, a means to process emotions or simply a way to express one's creativity. The use of essential oils in the creative and meditative process allows you to connect your essence to frequencies of nature and therefore to channel what our unconscious wants to communicate to us with symbols, shapes, colors.
There is a wide variety of essential oils that can be used to promote creativity and this doesn't mean you have to be artists: if used with intention, these aromatherapy allies can help open the doors of inner creativity; experimenting with different essential oils is a great way to find the perfect blend for your being.
Essential oils work the same way as other holistic practices to support creativity - spending time in nature, practicing meditation, writing are all great ways to relax the mind and allow inspiration to flow.
Holistic aromatherapy can therefore help unleash inner creativity, helping to balance energy and emotions and promoting a sense of calm and well-being. Contact us to find out how you too can explore your unconscious and your talents with the instrument of art and essential oils.
Art and aesthetics have a profound relationship with beauty, the same one that is perceived as such by our brain thanks to the combination of colors, shapes, sounds.
In recent years, neuroscience has investigated the perception of pleasure generated by observing manifestations of beauty to the point that the neuroscientist Semir Zeki has coined a new term and that is "NEUROESTHETICS", with which we intend to define a precise field of investigation concerning the brain activity, the creative process and aesthetic judgment.
Starting from these studies, it is possible to state that the aesthetic experience is not a simple passive registration of the surrounding reality, but an active construction of meanings that involves elaboration and analysis processes.
Indeed, the observation of different types of paintings produces activity in different cortical regions, depending on the category to which the work of art belongs. The observation of figurative canvases depicting landscapes, for example, involves the bilateral hippocampal gyrus and the right parietal cortex, areas normally involved in the exploration of large visual scenes and in the representation of spatial relationships between the elements. The portraits activate areas involved in the observation of faces, such as the fusiform gyrus and the amygdala.
Finally, it has been hypothesized that the so-called mirror neurons may also be involved in the aesthetic appreciation of works of art, a particular population of neurons, present in the premotor cortex, which are activated both during the observation of an action and during the execution of the same. Mirror neurons exemplify a biological mechanism that allows the actions performed by others to be correlated with the observer's motor repertoire. The vision of an action induces in the observer the automatic simulation of that action; this mirroring mechanism is not limited to the domain of actions, but also concerns that of sensations and emotions, so much so that they would also be responsible for man's emotional responses to works of art.
