Natural Essential Oils: Unisex functional fragrances 

MORE THAN JUST A FRAGRANCE! by Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan, Managing Editor - First Class Magazine

Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™ offer a different approach to fragrances. All her products offer unisex scents designed with purpose.  Infused with 100% natural essential oils, these products are designed to offer delightful aromas and to help a person with a mood boost. The fragrances include I Have Calm, I Have Focus, I Have Confidence and I Have Joy.

The first tick Melissa Allen’s Mood Essentials get from me is that they are cruelty free and not tested on animals. The next big ticks are that the products are made in Australia and a donation to WIRES is made with every product sold. Then there is the fact that they don’t just smell divine but they are designed to affect your mood in a positive way rather than overwhelm your senses. Melissa Allen’s Mood Essentials are centred on the principle of aromatherapy that essential oils and fragrances can affect the way you feel and think. This knowledge has assisted many including as far back as Cleopatra who is said to have used essential oils in her rooms and on her clothes to seduce Mark Anthony. The Greek physical Hippocrates used essential oils to offer protection against contagious diseases and for the therapeutic values.

In the 1920s Rene Maurice Gattefasse, a French Chemist, burnt his arm while making a fragrance and immediately plunged it into a jug of lavender oil. Through his amazement the pain was less than expected and the blistering was greatly reduced.

The healing process was faster and he was left with little scarring.  He was so impressed that he devoted the rest of his life to researching the healing properties of essential oils and he christened it “Aromatherapy” including through the lungs via exhalation.

Melissa Allen Mood Essentials will give you purpose

Melissa Allen understands the benefits of essential oils. These include relaxation, de-stressing and boosting self-esteem and confidence. Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™ are designed to be used in daily routines to promote positivity.

Humans can distinguish between thousands of smells that are deeply connected to our emotional state. Research has shown that we can have psychological reactions to certain scents. When we inhale a scent, the odour travels through the nose and affects the brain via receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the -emotional brain’.

My favourite fragrance is I have Calm. Don’t we all need calm in everything we do? This is infused with fourteen essential oils including sandalwood, patchouli, lavender and bergamot. It allows you be become relaxed and to unwind while smelling divine. For those who are more partial to a mixture of grapefruit, rosewood, mandarin and bergamot, I Have Confidence will leave you with a clear and positive mindset ready to take on the world.

I love that they are available in a compact travel size or a full size as well.
