The Science of Scent

Scent & Our Memories

Our sense of smell is an incredible powerhouse, often underestimated in its prowess. Once believed to distinguish only around 10,000 scents, recent research by Dr. Andreas Keller of Rockefeller University suggests that our noses are capable of discerning over a trillion different aromas. Isn't that mind-blowing?

But here's the real magic: our sense of smell isn't just about identifying scents – it's a gateway to a treasure trove of memories. Picture this: the aroma of freshly baked cookies wafts through the air, and suddenly, you're not just smelling cookies; you're transported back to your childhood kitchen, baking with your mum or dad. This phenomenon, known as a Proustian moment, is like a time machine for your senses, triggering a flood of precious memories.

Behind this sensory marvel lies the olfactory bulb, a tiny structure at the front of our brain. It acts as the gatekeeper, passing scent information to the brain's central command for further processing. But here's where it gets really fascinating: odours take a shortcut to the limbic system, home to the amygdala and hippocampus – the brain's emotional and memory hubs. That's why a whiff of something familiar can evoke such strong emotions and vivid recollections. So, next time you catch a scent that transports you through time, thank your olfactory bulb for the journey down memory lane!

 Scent & Our Feelings

Wax melts work their magic by harnessing the power of fragranced oils or essential oils. These oils hold the key to unlocking our memories and influencing our emotions. Essential oils, extracted directly from nature's bounty, offer pure essence straight from the source, ensuring an authentic scent experience.

Let's take a peek at some of the most beloved essential oil wax melts and their remarkable benefits:

Peppermint: A breath of fresh air! Perfect for clearing blocked sinuses and invigorating your senses.
Lavender: The ultimate mood booster! Renowned for its ability to uplift spirits and create a serene, tranquil atmosphere in any space.
Eucalyptus: Nature's revitaliser! Infuses your home with a refreshing aura, helping you feel rejuvenated and energised.
Jasmine: Sweet serenity! With its calming properties, Jasmine is your ticket to unwinding after a long, taxing day at work.
Spearmint: Concentration station! Ideal for those needing a cognitive boost, Spearmint has been shown to enhance working memory and sharpen focus.

Whether you're seeking a mood lift, a moment of relaxation, or a study buddy to power through tough days, essential oil wax melts are your trusted allies. Let these aromatic wonders infuse your life with positivity and vitality.

Wax melts also commonly feature fragranced oils, crafted in laboratories to replicate an array of scents. These oils are like tiny wizards, conjuring up memories or weaving new ones with every delightful aroma they release. Imagine the joy on your children's faces at Christmas, as the scent of cinnamon or orange fills the air, turning your home into a festive wonderland. Or picture dropping a summer-inspired scent into your space on a dreary British autumn day, instantly whisking yourself away to sun-kissed shores.
