Plants have the ability to precision-blend “perfumes”, which act as messengers. Just like bees, we are hard-wired to assimilate and decode these messages.
Inhalation of these essential oils can have rapid effects; it takes only 500 milliseconds for a scent to register!
The nose transforms chemical information into an electric signal, which is transmitted to the limbic system or “feeling brain”.
Scents, therefore, elicit emotions, memories and sensory responses. We know that:
• frankincense is a psychoactive anti-depressant.
• lavender, peppermint, rosemary and clary sage can decrease symptoms of anxiety and stress.
• pepper or rose oil affect our sympathetic nervous system and hormones.
It’s my passion to blend mood boosting perfumes just for you. Mood Perfumes (c) have been trusted since 2009 to support tough emotions. Call me to find out more.
