Olafactory October improve your skin & wellbeing by adding scent to skin care
Scent it’s known changes your mood and now many well- known skincare companies are researching aromachology – the power scent has over our skin and its condition as well as our moods.
So why not add a few drops of your favourite aromatherapy oils to your skincare routine for a fresher looking complexion and a mood boost too?
Sensory stimulation may increase pleasurable feelings in the brain, such as touch, smell, taste, music and dance. So whilst you can’t control the weather, your job, or relationship you can increase your feelings of happiness with the addition of scent and improve the quality and feel of your skin at the same time. The olfactory bulb at the back of the nose has nerve endings, these send messages directly to the limbic system in our brain. Scent it appears has the ability to skip past the conscious brain and straight to the hypothalamus gland, responsible for producing and releasing our sensory experiences, like memories, emotions, pleasure and instincts. Although the importance of smell to survival has largely disappeared, its effects on our brains and body still remain.
