Our Sense of Smell
Olfactory perception is one of the strongest connections between the outside world and ourselves. Responsible for recalling memories, interpreting external changes, and driving physical connections, our sense of smell is a powerful ally that can help us realign, relax, and recharge. Many studies have shown that the effects of fragrances on mood, physiology and behavior are due to its ability to interact and affect the central nervous system. Essential oils and fragrance compounds have been used for centuries in both traditional and herbal medicine to treat various psychological and physical disorders - headaches, insomnia, eczema, and anxiety to name a few. When small amounts of fragrance compounds are taken in through respiration, it causes indirect physical effects by activating olfactory memory. Holistic treatments such as aromatherapy engage this mechanism to treat emotional and physical concerns. Tranquility bath and body ritual proposes an integrated approach that combines the use of home-care products and aromatherapy to alleviate stress and favor relaxation and harmony for mind and body.

The combination of amaranth plus essential oils and silky touch textures provides total mind and body care for the maintenance of your overall well-being. Amaranth, a common perennial of Central America, contains a host of benefits. Often considered a superfood cereal, it boasts a high content of proteins and is gluten-free. Amaranth oil is cosmetically utilized for the treatment of dry skin. Rich in squalene, fatty acids, and tocotrienols, it restores the hydrolipidic film, contrasting water evaporation and preserving the skin’s elasticity and beauty. Its high concentration of alpha-tocopherols restores the skin cellular barrier and provides an antioxidant action which protects the tissues from aging processes. Silky touch textures leave skin soft and nourished thanks to high concentrations of oils and butters, bestowing extraordinary pleasure and efficacy. An exclusive blend of essential oils, consisting primarily of cedarwood and sweet orange, helps to balance mind and body, counteracting states of stress and tension and restoring serenity. Essential rose, sandalwood, geranium and vetiver oils complete the bouquet, providing an unmistakable olfactory identity that is embracing, stimulating a relaxing effect on the emotions.
