Fragrance as a mood shifter

Contrary to popular belief even positive people suffer from bad moods.

Everyone knows that feeling of a day that’s just a bit off. After accepting that it’s OKAY, you can decide whether or not you wish to change the story running in your head.

A simple yet effective mood changing technique includes repeating “I know I feel bad, I accept that I do and I know this feeling will pass … I choose to let this feeling go and move on.” If your mood is a stubborn one you can continue with …” I know this feeling will pass when I’m ready to let it”.

A very simple way to uplift your spirits is to mindfully spray your Combardis Aromatic Mist and change the story.

Fragrance can directly affect your emotional state in a most positive way. When fragrance is inhaled, the odour molecules travel up your nostrils to the centre of olfactory sensation. The olfactory bulb then transmits the impulses to other parts of the brain including the gustatory centre (where the sensation of taste is perceived), the amygdala (where emotional memories are stored) and other parts of the limbic system.

The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels and hormone balance. Essential oils in their purest forms can positively affect the mind and body.
