So it turns out the skin can smell. An article published in the New York Times published on October 14th, 2014 Smell Turns Up in Unexpected Places discusses new findings of smell receptors in the skin. According to the article, the skin and the nose share 15 olfactory receptors. The study used a synthetic form of sandalwood to test the skins response and found that it can stimulate healing.
This finding is super exciting because it helps explain the long honored use of essential oils topically to rejuvenate, repair and restore the skin. We've been using essential oils in our line since the beginning nearly 20 years ago. Each one is carefully selected and included both for the aromatic qualities - it's always nice when your skin care smells good! - and for their specific skin related properties be it soothing, stimulating, rejuvenating or calming. Every essential oil offers different skin specific benefits and many contain vitamins and other anti-oxidants.
