Apothecary Founder, Stacy, Shares Some Words
“Ten years ago, if someone had told me I would be working with aromatherapy and essential oils, I would have thought that person was bonkers. But when I started learning about essential oils, everything changed.
Since then, my hope has always been to use our platform as a business to connect others with the art and science of botanical medicine.
3 Fun Facts About the Sense of Smell
*Did you know that the average healthy person can distinguish between ten and forty thousand odors, many on a subliminal level? Isn’t that spectacular? This explains why essential oils work not only with the body, but also the spirit and the mind.
*Did you know that smell relays messages from our outer world directly to the brain, influencing the physical body, mind and emotions? Aromatherapy permits us to access our subconscious, (which is not an easy thing to do, by the way!). Pretty cool, right?
*Did you know that olfactory nerve cells regenerate every thirty to sixty days? Our bodies were designed to support olfactory health, so that we could experience the inherent healing and protection that comes with our sense of smell.
Now imagine you are smelling a bouquet of flowers or think about the fragrances that bring you joy, such as a holiday meal, or the scent of a fresh lemon that has just been cut open. Can you feel anything in your body when you’re tapping into those olfactory memories? I bet you can! Pretty powerful, right?” – Stacy Shuman, Aromatherapist and Founder of Well Scent Apothecary
And today, for all of you souls that may need it, we wanted to share with you what we call our “bottled joy”:
The fresh scent of joy, inter-connectedness, and new beginnings:
*Frankincense- a grounding aroma, to remind our body and our spirits of our connection not only to nature and the planet, but to our fellow loving hearts whom walk it.
*Roman Chamomile- The comforting and happy scent of home. The scent of Grandma’s tea, of cozy Autumn evenings, and of an embrace full of unconditional love.
*Spruce- An awakening and refreshing tone, to open the lungs, clear the mind, and re-invigorate the spirit. The component of our Breathe blend that offers a brighter morning, and acts as a reminder that it’s never too late for a new beginning.
Wishing you a breath of joy,
The Well Scent Team
