Have you ever wondered what makes a lemon smell like a lemon or a strawberry smell like a strawberry? Each plant, and even some animals, have what are termed TERPENES.
Terpenes are highly aromatic compounds that determine the smell of many plants and herbs. Because terpenes produce vibrant smells, they form the basis of many essential oils and are an integral part of aromatherapy. Inhaling the scents from some plants and essential oils may affect a person’s mood and stress levels.
For instance, lemongrass, which is in our Cleansing Water and Toner along with both our Moisturizing Day Serum and Night Serum, when absorbed is highly energizing. It is also well known to help combat stress, migraines, and muscle spasms. In addition, it can assist in alleviating respiratory problems associated with seasonal allergies.
