Smell Sense

Did you know it only takes two seconds for an aroma to enter your nose and travel to the part of the brain that effects memory and controls emotion?

Fragrance can focus our concentration,  influence us to spend money and even prompt us to settle unpaid bills.

How can just a whiff of fragrance do all this?  Odor particles enter the olfactory sensors just behind the bridge of the nose.  These bind to cells that send out messages to the limbic system (the part of our brains that regulated emotions like fear, rage, anger, aggression and pleasure).

The limbic system regulates our stress responses and influences our sexual, metabolic and hormonal activity.

This is the reason specific fragrances have the ability to stimulate intense memories and re-create experiences and influence the way we behave.

In our next post we will cover some ways to use our Organic Wax candles infused with Essential Oils to help enhance productivity, create a calming mood and set a relaxing area in your home and workspace!

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
