Nabila Khashoggi, co-founder of Children of Peace International, has become a noted actress and author, in addition to heading her own business endeavors. She founded a natural skin care product company known as Nabila K Cosmetics. In this position, Nabila Khashoggi leverages her knowledge of and interest in alternative medicines, including the mood effects of essential oils.

The use of essential oils, also known as aromatherapy, has proven effects on people’s physical, mental, and emotional states. In regard to mood, essential oils require activation of the sense of smell—the only one of the senses linked to the brain’s emotional control center, the limbic lobe—thereby enhancing one’s emotional life and providing a sense of well-being.

Studies have determined links between essential oils and mood, which may vary slightly from individual to individual. Lemon oils, for instance, increase norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter that contributes to mood regulation. Lavender oils can ease stress and have demonstrated an ability to relieve depression and insomnia. Many other essential oils provide similar benefits.
