Spring has finally arrived! Nature is slowly waking up, giving us all the perfect chance to follow with a full spring detox.

If hearing the word ‘detox’ instantly triggers thoughts about a diet consisting only of smoothies and hours on hours of gym sessions… think again! We found the perfect recipe for a detox that will awaken all your senses and reset your body, mind, and soul.

 

Why it works: the science behind smell

When thinking about the importance of our five senses, smell is most often overlooked. However, because of how our brain processes smell, this sense of ours is more important than you may think.

The most smells we experience play a crucial role in how we associate with emotions and memories. Know that feeling when a scent of something familiar instantly takes you back to a specific moment, an old memory? Well, in addition to being the sense that we link most closely with memory, smell is also highly emotive -- meaning that it arouses intense feelings in us.

This, of course, happens because of our physiology. When we detect an odour, the scent’s molecules fuse with the receptor cells in our nose, creating an impulse. This impulse is then passed to the brain through the olfactory nerve, and processed by the olfactory bulb. Our olfactory bulb then passes this information to a closely connected brain area: the limbic system, which plays a big role in controlling emotions, mood, memory, and behavior. That’s why something as simple as a familiar scent can cause a range of different emotional reactions in your brain.

 

Get Started!

Now that you have a better understanding of why scent therapy, just like meditation, can have a real impact on your mental well-being, let’s get into it!

You will need a cool-air diffuser, water, our oil blend recipes, and the essential oils that go into the blend you chose to try out. When creating these recipes, we were looking for aromatherapy oils that all perfectly complement one of the oils from our Body, Mind & Soul aromatherapy trio. Our oils trio is inspired by age-old practices that aim to enhance your wellbeing, and the three aromas cater to your essential needs - physical, mental, and spiritual.

 

If you don’t own a diffuser, try Mist! Mist is our carefully crafted ultrasonic aroma diffuser and humidifier, and you can now get it in an exclusive Full Spring Detox bundle including our smart bottle Spring for only $99 USD. Better yet… with the purchase of this bundle, you can get the Body, Mind & Soul oils trio at 50% off!
