Stopping Stress With New Scent Science

Stopping Stress With New Scent Science featured image

Any aromatherapy enthusiast will tell you that fragrances do much more than make us smell good. Australian scientists agree, and they’ve taken aromatherapy to the next level with scent technology that talks directly to the stress sectors of our brains.

The breakthrough formula incorporates specific levels of the chemicals that are naturally released when grass is cut: hexenals, hexenols and pinenes. These compounds alter the reactions of the hippocampus and amygdala, reducing the damage of long-term stress, improving memory function, and potentially lowering blood pressure.

Don’t expect the scent to bring you back to childhood days romping on the freshly mowed lawn, however. The patent-pending formula’s effect isn’t associative, and moreover, you won’t even be able to detect it. The concentration is low enough that you can’t consciously smell it, yet it still activates the limbic system.

This imperceptibility allows it to be added to products like shampoos, body lotions, perfumes and soaps without altering their aromas-just your mood.
