Smells and you

Do you know that your nose has at least 350 different odorant receptor proteins? Each protein detects smells in the air and identifies the scents. The brain then receives a message from the nose and throughout your life these are stored which is why a certain scent reminds you of a certain place and we can identify more than 10,000 different smells!! And scents can affect our mind set, mood and emotions!!

Benefits of burning oils:

Perfumes have been around since civilization itself began and fragrances work on levels that we cannot even consciously process. Scientific studies show there is a close relationship between the scent and the emotional side of our brains. Researchers have identified seven basic scent categories that can invoke varying moods. Other research shows that even thinking about pleasant fragrances can be enough to make us a bit more cheerful, but the actual smell can have dramatic effects in improving our mood and sense of well-being. So burning oils can be hugely beneficial - Try burning oils in your home or work environment to uplift, calm, stimulate, arouse, revitalise, de-stress, refresh or energize.
