We’ve always known our signature botanical, the Rose, is more than a sweet, natural scent. Hotwired directly to memory and emotion, fragrance can have a powerful, immediate impact on our sense of wellbeing – and Roses are a powerful joy-trigger. Need more excuses to upgrade your day with a hit of Rose-tinted bliss? We’ve got four of them…
Put your favourite Rose scent on double duty before bed. The ability of stress-defusing Rose essences to lull a busy mind to sleep is no secret, but a German study has also showed that subjects exposed to a Rose fragrance during REM had more positive dreams than those who smelled a control or unpleasant scent. Experts think that having positive dreams as we recharge could be a key to maintaining positive moods while we’re awake.
Deploying a shot of intense scent while learning a task, then smelling that scent again while we sleep, can help memories set faster. New things are filed in one part of the brain short-term, then etched into the cortex for permanently during sleep. Reactivating the brain with smell, a major trigger for memory, overnight can make the process more efficient. Mist to boost your night cream – and your memory.
