Essential Oils To Elevate Your Inner Glow
The power of scent is often underestimated, but it can completely transform your mood. Just think about it: a touch of the right fragrance is the ultimate confidence booster before a date, just like a deep inhalation of Lavender oil can take you straight to a place of calm. It’s frequently the last step in our morning beauty routine, a moment to give one last pass by the mirror, take a big breath in, and think, “okay– I’m ready”.
The Power Of Aromas
So, how can a single scent have the ability to completely alter your mood? It all has to do with the way aromas affect our brains. According to NBC News, scents and smells travel through the olfactory bulb, part of your limbic system and the emotional center of the brain. Because of this, certain scents can bring back memories and completely alter your emotions.
That said, scent can be a transformative tool, uplifting your mood and helping you feel sexier, calmer, or more sophisticated. However, not all scents are created equal. Fragrance & aromas may be all over the skincare and beauty market, but many are synthetically derived and don't have the same miraculous qualities of natural essential oils. That's where we come in.
Exposing Synthetic Fragrances
Synthetic fragrances found in many of your traditional perfumes do not have the same mood-boosting properties as essential oils. Essential oils on average contain almost one hundred chemical compounds, this distinguishes them from traditional synthetic fragrances which typically have far fewer.
If that’s not enough to make the switch to essential oils, synthetic fragrances, whether they’re found in your perfume or favorite body lotion, are often left undefined. Beauty companies are not required to disclose the fragrance on their ingredient label. Instead, they can blanket these chemicals with the word “fragrance”.
This is a convenient way for cosmetic companies to hide toxic ingredients such as parabens and phthalates, without needing to disclose them.
Our Philosophy On Aromas, Only The Highest Quality Essential Oils
Don’t get us wrong, we love a beautiful fragrance here at Tata Harper! That is why we only use high-quality essential oils in our products. Each Tata Harper aroma is carefully blended with specifically chosen essential oils to create not only a great smelling fragrance– but a specific mood enhancer as well.
Essential oils are truly holistic in that they affect mind, body, and spirit."
Essential Oils For Your Self-Care Arsenal
We also love to use essential oils in diffusers! Our friends at Vitruvi say it best, "Aroma changes our mood, relaxes us, and even takes us back to a specific memory—like how the smell of a certain flower can remind you of your grandmother.”
By diffusing essential oils in your space, you intentionally set the stage for how you show up for your loved ones, your work, and yourself. Like wise, aromatherapy can fit into your routine in so many different ways. Some of Tata’s favorite rituals are practicing breathing exercises with aromas or keeping the tiny green bottles on her desk to use as a midday pick me up.
