The olfactory power of essential oils
At Les Huilettes, we are committed to sharing with you much more than cosmetics; it's a true olfactory ritual for a beauty routine that feels good. Indeed, our formulations are inspired by olfactotherapy. But what is it all about? What is Olfactotherapy?
Olfactotherapy is a therapy method that uses smells and essential oils to improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being. This therapeutic approach is based on the power of scents to stimulate the senses and impact our emotional and psychological state. How does it work?
Olfactotherapy is based on the fact that our olfactory system is directly linked to our limbic brain, a part of the brain that plays an essential role in regulating emotions, moods, and memory. When we inhale odors, they travel through the nose to the brain, where they activate specific receptors that trigger an emotional and physiological response. Essential oils are commonly used in olfactotherapy because of their concentration of powerful aromatic compounds. What are the benefits of olfactotherapy?
Olfactotherapy can be beneficial as it provides relaxation and stress relief. It can also help improve mood (citrus oils with energizing properties) or promote better sleep (lavender essential oil). Additionally, it can provide relief, for example, in respiratory comfort (eucalyptus or tea tree with decongestant properties). Olfactotherapy at Les Huilettes
Most of our products contain essential oils and can be used for olfaction. The NIGHT serum is ideal for practicing olfactotherapy before going to bed. Apply 1 or 2 drops on the inside of the wrist, savor it with slow and deep breathing to rediscover self-love and let go.
