Aging: What does fragrance have to do with it?

Aug 09, 2009

Scientists now know that certain scents stimulate the brain to release hormones for reduced stress, improved memory, altered heart rate and enhanced feelings of happiness.

The aroma of Lavender has been used through the ages to reduce stress which is a contributing factor of aging.  The essential oils of lavender can reduce the release of cortisol in a matter of minutes.  Cortisol is a stress hormone that triggers inflammation, a definite factor in premature aging. In addition, recent studies have shown that lavender may augment antioxidant actions in the body.  Jasmine and rose also create a sense of calm and are good for stress relief.

Citrus which is great for our bodies is also good for the mind.  The invigorating scents of grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange create a sense of well-being. So, improve your spirits with the sweet smell of the Rutaceae family of flowering plants.

Melt away anxieties with the comforting fragrances of Sandalwood, pines and cedars. They promote a peaceful mood and have been used throughout history to improve the mental, physical and emotional well-being of mankind.

It’s great to be able to offer all of that on an air freshener!
