Said to cross-link emotions and memories within the consumer, these scented personal care products have become the modern, convenient method of accessing the well-being benefits of aromatherapy.
The History of Aromatherapy
For centuries, humans have been using aromatherapy for medicinal and traditional purposes. These practices were seen in ancient cultures around the world, such as China, India and Egypt. By incorporating aromatic plant components within balms and oils, these ancient civilizations were creating a sensorial experience, known to provide physical and psychological benefits that were gaining recognition across ancient populations. Not only were scents scientifically proven to provide medicinal benefits by French physicians in the 19th century, but they have also been continuously linked to providing meditation-like benefits, such as evoking feelings of relaxation and encouraging nostalgic ease.
Aromatherapy Made Easy
Today, aromatherapy can be embraced in different ways. You can fully embrace the ancient art by doing further research into the benefits of pure, natural essential oils, and how to incorporate these into your routine using infusers, steamers, inhalers or spritzers, or you can experience the delight of natural scent notes that have been incorporated into premium personal care products.

Fragrance notes commonly used in personal care products, such as body washes, lotions and foam baths, include:
Green – green notes may express invigorating and stress-relieving sensations that are associated with the idea of youthful energy and nature.
Floral – floral notes, such as rose, lavender and lily, convey the feelings of being pampered, exclusive and spoiled with luxury.
Edible – edible, gourmand, or so-called “foodie” notes, such as coconut, add a special dimension to the experience, tantalizing the palette and evoking the same emotions that are felt during special occasions.
Citrus – citrus, zesty notes, such as orange, lime and bergamot, are refreshing for the senses, adding the idea of feeling fresh, renewed, clean and energetic.
