ESSENTIAL OIL APPLICATION

The sense of smell taps into one of the most ancient parts of the brain. This area, known as the amygdala serves as the brain’s emotional center. It is largely responsible for the creation of new memories which explains why scent, memory and emotion are so interconnected. Aroma arrives in the amygdala by way of volatile aromatic molecules. These are released by the essential oils present in all LINNÉ formulas. These tiny airborne molecules travel through the nose to the olfactory bulb. From there they move through the bloodstream to the limbic system where the amygdala is located. Their presence signals the release of neurochemicals that trigger a response that can be stimulating or relaxing depending on the essential oils...

TAKE A BREAK FROM BLUE LIGHT

In this digital world there is certainly something to be said for a good book: the old-fashioned kind with pages that can be dog-eared and scribbled on; the kind that wrinkles in the bath and needs no plug between use.Treat yourself to some blue-light-free reading this weekend: your skin deserves a break. Blue light emitted from our phones and screens is known to contribute to brown spots, hyperpigmentation such as melasma, and possibly photoaging and the breakdown of collagen. Blue light is not all bad as it can help elevate mood and increase memory and cognitive function but extended use of blue-light emitting devices can cause eye strain, cataracts and glaucoma.Work commitments and the desire to connect with family and friends via...

EUCALYPTUS
