FLORAL BOUQUETS: IMMEDIATE JOY
Radiant in its vase, a bouquet of flowers received by surprise will only soften you.
It is with this in mind that we quote these floral scents in our article. Indeed, each bouquet is unique, and its scent is just as much. But in general terms, floral scents are a source of calm and freshness in our sometimes tight daily lives. Take the time to give yourself some from time to time. Get a pretty bouquet from your neighborhood florist, to support local merchants and brighten up your living room. What a pleasure to dip your nose in...
TRUE LAVENDER: NATURAL ANTI-STRESS
What would a Provençal landscape be without its fields of lavender as far as the eye can see, accompanied by its lively and unique scents? We have close to us an essential plant in aromatherapy, especially for relaxation.
By having a real sedative and tranquilizing effect on the nervous system, its essential oil helps to fight against difficult sleep and against nervousness. If there is a plant to integrate into your daily life, it is surely this one, especially for its perfect harmlessness. A few drops on the pillow, in an essential oil diffuser, in inhalation… There are many ways to use it. All that remains is to choose the one that best suits what you are looking for. Indeed, true lavender has more than one trick up its sleeve and its virtues are more numerous than you might think: healing and regenerating skin, antispasmodic, muscle relaxant, antiseptic, calming, hypotensive… So many benefits to explore.
However, be sure to use the right dosage and perform a skin test of each essential oil before use. The benefits will only be better.
ORANGE BLOSSOM: GENTLY SOOTHING
Orange blossom also has sedative properties soothing tension, digestive spasms and helping to fall asleep.
Its honeyed, citrusy and sunny scent transports you to a benevolent universe, very often associated with childhood, and in particular the world of babies. Indeed, it is a scent often used for products dedicated to them! And we have also included this hypoallergenic Orange Blossom in our reference to take care of their skin.
It is therefore often a perfume that we particularly like, and which sends us memories of tenderness and innocence. Or who can also evoke you, if you are greedy like us, a sweet smell of brioche!
GOURMET AND VANILLA SCENTS: BACK TO CHILDHOOD
Speaking of brioche… Let's talk about gourmet scents. You probably know Proust's famous Madeleine, which highlights so well the power of smells to transport us to distant and yet so strong emotions.
There's nothing like a sweet vanilla scent to soothe us and wrap us in a comforting bubble. Very often associated with our childhood, vanilla has a positive effect on our mood by plunging us back into happy memories.
Splitting a vanilla bean is like taking a leap into happiness.
WOODY AND CEDAR ODORS: MAXIMUM CONCENTRATION
Trees are essential to life on Earth and their woody scents, like those of cedar, can also help you concentrate and find calm.
Indeed, the components of cedar are recognized as soothing, in the same way as true lavender essential oil.
It is therefore an essential oil to explore, but also a scent to discover on a daily basis.
Woody scents are common and very pleasant in candles, or even in perfume diffusers. They transport us to the fireside on a mild autumn evening... Enough to bring nature home.
Here is our top 5 smells that relax on a daily basis, but there are many. Do not hesitate to share yours with us!
