SMELL RINGS BELLS!....HOW SMELL TRIGGERS MEMORIES & EMOTIONS

Many people use fragrances on a daily basis without paying much attention to how that fragrance might actually make them feel.   

There is a fair amount of research that suggests a person’s emotional state can be influenced by fragrances and potentially even their behavior. 

Aromatherapy has long been used a form of stress relief and by tapping into key scents, some people report an array of different benefits.  Though using fragrance shouldn’t never replace the guidance of health professionals, aromatherapy can compliment more traditional approaches to wellbeing.

This is related to our olfactory nerve which gives us our sense of smell.  This process starts from our nose and is connected through our brain.  This nerve sends signals very quickly to many parts of the brain, including those that are responsible for our emotions, mood and memory, the limbic system and amygdala. For years, fragrances have been used to help relax the mind from the worries of everyday life, calm our emotions, whilst also helping to improve focus and mental clarity. 

This theory helps us to understand why scents can so quickly trigger physical reactions in our bodies and have lasting effects after the scent is gone. 

The benefits of Melissa Allen Mod Essentials™ is that they are more than just a nicely fragranced product.  We’ve studied the benefits of each oil and tapped into the science of scent to create specific mood enhancing fragrances and body care products.

Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™ range is different to many other fragrance and skincare products.  Whilst all the products are effective and smell delightful, they have the added element of the purported benefits of scent-based approach to wellbeing.

Tapping into the power of aromatherapy, Melissa Allen Mood Essentials ™ work by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages through the nervous system to the limbic system (the part of the brain which controls emotions). This theory allows us to hypothesise that by using the fragrances you can elevate your mood and have a positive influence on your emotions.
