Linalool can have an anesthetic effect through reducing the excitability of cells in the spinal cord that transmit pain signals to the brain. An example of this is a reduced signaling strength of acetylcholine, a brain chemical that is required for muscle contraction and movement. It can also have an anti-convulsant effect similar to diazepam.
