Scent Remedy™ CALM

Created by grasp perfumer and pure product chemist Raman Patel, ScentTherapy™ CALM is an exquisite instance of how Ayurvedic perfumery may be gracious, soothing and restorative on the identical time. It’s in oil-based format, which in itself implies that carrying it (or making use of it to the ceramic diffuser which accompanies the rollerball) is an intimate and discreet expertise. Most of the elements deal with a vata dosha imbalance, which is manifested by nervousness, agitation, palpitations, and sleep disturbance: this may clarify why CALM’s chosen service oil is almond oil, which is preferable for these people who show an abundance of vata traits.

Each fragrant part employed in CALM is there for a function: the uplifting, anti-depressant attributes of lemon, orange, sage, eucalyptus, cardamom, cinnamon, and geranium; ginger is the ‘oil of empowerment’, and vetiver is the ‘oil of tranquility’. Patchouli is grounding; coriander, labdanum and olibanum promote leisure. Basil is understood to advertise calm and uplift the thoughts; spikenard, also referred to as jatamansi – could enhance one’s general temper and outlook. These aromatic components coalesce in a refined alchemy as they foster a profound sense of repose and equanimity. CALM does possess a considerably medicinal scent, due primarily to terpenic eucalyptus, but it surely by no means overwhelms the wearer.
