Thanksgiving is a time when we gather with the people we love. For most of us, the day reminds us of happy memories and we look forward to creating new ones with family and friends.
When we walk through the door of Mom's or Grandma's house on Thursday, we feel the warmth of a busy kitchen and hear the buzz of family talking while the football game plays in the background. We smell the medley which is Thanksgiving, the turkey roasting, the spice and cinnamon of pumpkin pie, or the fragrance of wood burning in the fireplace.
Sense of Smell
Our sense of smell is so powerful, it can create strong emotional responses in our bodies. The cells in our nose that give us the ability to smell are linked to our limbic system (the part of our brain that deals with emotions) and exerts control over our emotions, behavior and long term memory.
When we created our essential oil blend for our seasonal limited edition collection, Pumpkin Chai, we knew we wanted to tap into those feelings or emotions that are created from our experiences around the fall holiday, Thanksgiving.
Comfort. Warmth. Cozy.
All of these emotions are triggered by the smells of cinnamon, ginger, spice, citrus in our collective experience of Thanksgiving. So those oils are what we blended to create our Pumpkin Chai Aromatherapy Blend Fall Collection.
We hope this blend will bring you these feelings even after Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
