We're big proponents on aromatherapy. We use pure all-natural, essential oils in all of our products to create a therapeutic scent for each of our products. We don't use any artificial scents, synthetics, preservatives, or parabens ever. They're bad for the environement and can mess with your body's natural rhythms and hormones. We believe too strongly in the power of scents to mess with its purity like that!
The Power of Scent
Ancient Egyptians have used odors to treat diseases, and the Greek physician Dioscorides even wrote books on essential oils and their healing properties. Scents have the power to take us away on a cloud of nostalgia, bringing us to specific memories that are locked away in our past. The scent of a rose can immediately calm and soothe, the zest of an orange can bring a smile across the face. Next time you're nauseous, try sniffing peppermint to help quell those butterflies in the stomach.
Scents That Ease
Any floral scents like lavender, rose, and jasmine are powerfully soothing. They invite calm and ease into your atmosphere. You'll immediately feel a sense of relaxation and security. The Steam Scalp Oil is a perfect example of the easeful qualities of jasmine. Its delightfully floral scent will soothe your scalp and spirit wrapping you in a warm blanket of love. It's great to use when you're feeling any sort of anxiety or when worries are troubling your mind.
Scents That Ground
A grounding scent makes us feel more alert and motivated. Our feet are firmly planted on the floor. We're not spacey, sleepy or in a daze. You know those days where even cups and cups of coffee are not enough to break us out of our fog? You'll be surprised at how quickly some scents can work for this cloud-busting effect. The Steam Hair Oil contains sage, rosemary, cedar bark, vetiver and lemon myrtle oil to create a very earthy, woodsy scent that smells almost medicinal. There's a zip to it that will ground your senses and when added to the hair creates a lustrous shine.
Scents That Uplift
Though all scents can brighten our spirit, the most uplifting scents invoke feelings of joy, give us energy, and make us feel bright and happy. Citrus oils are great for bringing moods up. The scent notes are high, kinda like the high notes on a piano. They just have that zing to it. The Steam Body Serum has lemon oil and a combination of rose oils so it's a full bodied scent with lots of uplifting qualities.
