How Fragrances Can Contribute to Your Self-Care

In our fast-paced world, stress seems to have become an unwelcome companion in our daily lives. From the pressures of work to the demands of personal responsibilities, it's no wonder that many of us are seeking refuge in the soothing embrace of self-care practices. And amidst this quest for wellness, fragrance is reclaiming its role as a vital component of self-care.

A staggering 79% of UK adults experience stress monthly, with women and Gen Z facing even higher burdens. And that's where fragrance steps in. Research shows that scent has a profound impact on our mood, concentration, memory recall, and emotions. In fact, a recent study revealed that a staggering 75% of our daily emotions are influenced by smell. This powerful connection to our emotional landscape means that scent has the ability to uplift, comfort, and inspire us in ways that other stimuli can’t.

But the influence of fragrance goes beyond mere mood enhancement. Scent has the remarkable ability to trigger responses in the limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for processing emotions and memories. As a result, the right fragrance can evoke feelings of relaxation, clarity, and focus, providing a much-needed respite from the chaos of everyday life.

Our functional fragrances are designed not just to please your olfactory senses, but to energise, de-stress and enhance focus, all while enveloping you in a luxurious aura.
