Aromatherapy is the art of using essentials oils derived from plants, flowers, fruits, seeds and woods for the health and wellness of the body, spirit and of course, skin! Aren’t those words beautiful when you read through them?
At One Love Organics, we love to incorporate the highest quality essential oils and blends into many of our products, not only for the skin benefits but also to help increase the pleasure of your beauty ritual. The sense of smell is powerful and inhaling beautiful aromas can help to calm, soothe and uplift the senses. Our founder Suzanne has passionately studied aromatherapy for over 15 years. She loves to create blends that help make daily life more beautiful. That is the art of aromatherapy and that art is reflected in our final product.
Aromatherapy is also a science. The Olfactory Research Fund coined the term “aromacology” to define the study of smell. Aromacology studies the emotional and behavioral effects of scents. OLO fans refer to our beloved pineapple citrus blend featured in Vitamin B Cleansing Oil, Vitamin C Body Oil, Vitamin C Body Polish and Brand New Day Scrub + Masque as a “vacation in a bottle,” proving how the scent of a product can add the benefit of relaxation.
Since we are celebrating love all month long, we’d like to point out that scent plays a powerful role in attraction. As humans, we each emit a unique aroma. Our unique scent is a combination of genes, diet, lifestyle and hormones and it strongly influences attraction and even compatibility. Some essential oils and extracts, like rose and jasmine, are considered to have sensual and aphrodisiac qualities. We include a beautiful rose extract in Vitamin C Brightening Facial Serum and a subtle but pleasing jasmine extract in Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum. Our advice is to apply one of these beneficial serums before bed and enjoy *wink wink*!
