The power of scent

The power of scent

History tells us of the power of scent through the role it played in ancient rituals, ceremonies, and healing realms. This was a little lost with the commercialisation of synthetic fragrance, but today fragrance has adopted deep purpose and meaning beyond a cheeky spritz of perfume to compliment an outfit. 

Neuroscientists have proven that scent can alter our emotions and moods more than any other sensory experience. Our scent receptors are closely linked to our limbic system, the part of the brain which influences memory, emotion, and psychological functions. 

We invite you to shift your mood with the therapeutic aroma of a candle infused with natural botanicals and essential oils. Choose your favourite from Aromatherapy Associates limited edition range based on what mood you’d like to cultivate. 

I want to feel…
