We live in a time that is predominantly shaped by our mind, thoughts and analytical thinking. We calculate, make head-decisions, ponder. When a force is so overwhelming, our remaining senses often go unnoticed. With this realization, we love to discover something new. To focus our attention on our nose, our mouth, our body and our emotions. A wonderful way to put this into practice are aroma oils.
Aroma oils are "the fragrant soul of plants" as many say so beautifully. The oils have strong effects on body, mind and soul. They can be used as "little helpers" in everyday life, convince in the fantastic world of aroma cuisine and are ideal for relaxing meditation units.
Within a few hundredths of a second, fragrances stimulate the brain. We react immediately - no matter if we like what we smell or not. For this reason, probably the saying "I can not smell someone“ - unconsciously decides within a short time whether we feel attracted or not.
It is important to pay attention to the origin of the oils. In general: Use NATIVE products and pay attention to the ingredients.
In case of doubt, please contact trained aroma physicists.
Oils and their effects:

In our senses - world we say: Close your eyes, let the oils work on you and let your inner voice make the decision. The voice, which is paid too little attention and is always right.
The fragrances can be applied differently. A drop on a scented stone accompanies all day. Your own four walls or the workplace can be scented with a diffuser - you can drip ready fragrance mixtures or create your own fragrance compositions. Aromatic oils are also used in the aroma kitchen and in green cosmetics. You will soon read more about it in our blog.
