National Fragrance Day
It’s National Fragrance Day!
Isn’t it amazing how scent takes us back to the past?
For me, the scent of lilacs reminds me of my mother’s favorite flower, the Mason jar bouquets on the kitchen table that filled the entire house with fragrance.
Did you know that the human brain can identify more than 10,000 smells?
It’s because your nose has at least 350 different odorant receptor proteins. These receptor proteins detect the scents in the air by combining in different combinations to identify scent molecules entering the nose. The coded signals then transfer from the nose to the olfactory bulb in the brain. From the olfactory bulb, the signals transfer to the cortex where they are mapped as “odor perceptions”. They are stored there throughout your lifetime.
This is how a certain scent will remind you of a certain place or a time in your life.
Our reed diffusers are very environmentally friendly. They emanate NO soot or film onto your furniture, walls and ceiling- the way candles do. (If you use an ionic air cleaner, you already know that ionic cleaners must be cleaned twice as often if you use candles in your home. Not so with reed diffusers.)
Our ingredients are alcohol-free and DPG-free. Unregulated reed diffusers from China may have any combination of unregulated ingredients.Want to learn more about Reed Diffusers and Fragrance?
