Home Remedies for Anxiety

Have you ever walked into a room and been instantly transported to a different time or place by the smell? Or maybe you caught a whiff of a familiar scent and suddenly felt a flood of memories and emotions?. It’s no secret that fragrance has a powerful effect on our sense of smell, but have you ever wondered why? In this blog, we’ll be exploring the fascinating world of fragrance and how it interacts with our sense of smell. From the psychology of scent memory to the benefits of fragrances in aromatherapy, we’ll delve into the ways in which fragrance can impact our mood, behaviour, and even our health.

How scents affect our emotions and behaviour

The way we remember, act and feel is very closely related to how we smell. The olfactory system, which is responsible for our sense of smell, is intimately linked to the limbic system, which includes the amygdala and the hippocampus—the part of the brain that controls our emotions and memories. This is why certain scents are able to trigger powerful emotions and memories. For example, the smell of freshly baked cookies might remind you of your grandmother’s kitchen and evoke feelings of comfort and nostalgia. On the other hand, the smell of cigarette smoke might trigger feelings of disgust and discomfort if you associate it with negative experiences or memories.

Past studies have also shown that different types of scents can have a direct impact on our mood and behaviour. For example, the scent of lavender has been known to have a calming effect and can reduce anxiety levels. Similarly, peppermint has been shown to increase alertness and cognitive performance. 

All in all, the way that scents affect our emotions and behaviour is complex and can vary from person to person. However, the science is clear: fragrance has a powerful impact on our sense of smell and can significantly influence our mood and behaviour.

Fragrance for aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses fragrances to promote physical and emotional health. The practice has been around for thousands of years and is still popular today. There are many different types of aromatherapy, each with its own unique benefits. Here are some of the most common types of aromatherapy and their associated benefits:

  • Scents can be used to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels. Fragrances like lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang are commonly used for this purpose.
  • Scents like peppermint, eucalyptus, and ginger are commonly used to help with pain relief and inflammation.
  • Mood enhancement aromatherapy can be used to promote feelings of happiness and well-being. Fragrances derived from essential oils such as bergamot, lemon, and grapefruit are used to improve mood.
  • Scents like lavender, chamomile, and bergamot can be used to promote better sleep and reduce insomnia in people who have trouble sleeping at night. 

Overall, scent aromatherapy is a safe and effective way to improve physical and emotional health, and it can be used to promote specific benefits while also improving overall well-being.

Fragrance in perfumes

There are many different types of fragrances available in the perfume industry, each with its own distinct scent and effects. From Eau De Toilette, Eau De Cologne to Eau De Parfum, all have different scent concentrations and are intended to be used in specific contexts or settings. The fragrance types and families used in perfumes are also distinct, as are their effects. Some of the most common are:

  • Floral fragrances, like rose, jasmine and lavender, are often associated with femininity and can have a calming effect on the wearer. 
  • Citrus fragrances are known to be fresh and invigorating and can help boost energy levels and improve focus, making them an ideal scent for work environments. Common citrus scents include lemon, orange, and grapefruit.
  • Woody, or natural, fragrances are often associated with masculinity and can have a grounding effect. Some of the most popular woody notes include sandalwood, cedarwood, and pine.
  • Oriental perfumes are exotic, warm, and luxurious, making them perfect for evening wear. Some of the most common scent notes include vanilla, musk, and amber.

To sum it up, the type of fragrance we choose can affect our sense of smell and have a significant impact on our mood and the way we feel. By understanding the different types of fragrances and their associated effects, you can choose a fragrance that best suits your needs and preferences. Find out more here.

10 Side Effects of Green Tea You Must Know NOW 4
Green Tea Beauty Benefits and Tips: Did you know about aging reversal qualities of green tea?  Well, most of the people know that green tea is effective for weight loss, but not everyone is aware of its anti-aging properties. Here are 4 benefits of green tea to slow down aging. But before that, you should know why aging happens.
 
Aging occurs due to a chemical reaction within your body cells which releases a certain amount of toxins known as free radicals. They damage our healthy cells which lead to less oxygen supply to them. Thus, collagen level decreases and the skin lose its youngness.
 
This starts happening after 30 and continues because the larger the amount of free radicals being released, faster is aging. Here, we need to cut those free radicals which are done by green tea. Though it is a slow process, it has long-term benefits. Now, let us have a look at the anti-aging properties of green tea.
10 Side Effects of Green Tea You Must Know NOW 4

How Green Tea works?
Green tea contains a lot of polyphenols and flavonoids, anti-oxidants which are water-extractable who work together and cut those free radicals in your body. It had been proven that the difference in the lifespan of tea drinkers and non-tea drinkers is approximately 5 years. The anti-oxidants are not only effective inside, but also outside as they stress your skin cells and bring back that radiance on your skin.
Benefits of Green Tea for Anti-Ageing
  1. Skin renewal: Many people are not aware of the term ‘photoaging’ which means changes in skin due to UVA or UVB rays. Polyphenols present in this tea prevents photoaging and damages occurred due to sun exposure. Also, it cleanses and moisturizes your skin and provides radiance.
  2. Improvement in joint pain: One of the major signs of aging is aching and creaking of knee joints. But if you make a habit of green tea every day then the pain can be avoided. Polyphenols and flavonoids are capable of strengthening your joints and reduce the pain and combat all types of arthritis.
  3. Metabolism: We all know the importance of a healthy stomach. If the metabolism and digestion system is not good, it can advance several diseases and increase chances of faster aging. Green tea regulates digestion and controls stool Ph to increase healthy bacterial growth. Moreover, it kills bad bacteria which give you a healthy stomach.
  4. Increases lifespan: Results have proven that people who consume a cup of green tea daily looked healthier and younger than those who do not. The antioxidants present in green tea prevents many aging-related diseases like heart problems, high level of cholesterol, obesity, joint and bone problems, etc.

Dr. Sheth’s Daily Peel

Who is it for? Dr. Sheth’s Daily Peel is for all those looking for a daily exfoliant that does microexfoliation without being harsh on the skin.

Price:

Rs 849 for 50 ml

Sensitivity Alert?

No

Dr. Sheth’s Daily Peel

My Experience with Dr. Sheth’s Daily Peel

Packaging

It comes in a sturdy pump packaging.

Fragrance:

It has a mild acid-y fragrance. It will not bother anyone.

Ease of Application

Easy to apply. Apply a thin layer on face and neck avoiding the eye area.

My Experience

This product is a gentle exfoliator. I use it only at night even though it can be used AM /PM. It stings just a bit wherever there is a dry patch on the skin. Make sure to apply sunscreen generously while using this product. Even when you have applied the product at night, the next day a good amount of sunscreen is a must. This is because any acid based exfoliator makes the skin more sensitive to the sun as new skin cells are exposed regularly.

Don’t let this frighten you. An exfoliator like this is a MUST have for your anti-aging regimen.

Overall Performance of Dr. Sheth’s Daily Peel

Pros:
  1. Convenient spray pump packaging
  2. Good exfoliator
  3. Gentle on the skin
Cons:
  1. None
Would I repurchase or Recommend?

It is an excellent product. This is recommended.

Fragrance:

It doesn’t have any strong fragrance which is a good thing for me.

Ease of Application

Very easy to use. Just close your eyes and spray all over face and neck.

My Experience

This product is very very unique. It protects the skin in an indoor environment from harsh ac dryness and the blue light from mobile phones and computer screens.

I like that it soothes my skin. It is not heavily fragrances and I can rest easy sure that my skin is protected from the rays of the computer in front of which I spend pretty much my entire day.

A couple of days back I used this quite often like every hour and I started to feel itchy. Actually the fault is mine, too much of anything is bad. I’d recommend using this once every three hours.

Overall Performance Dr. Sheth’s Indoor Protection Mist

Pros:
  1. Convenient spray packaging
  2. Soothes my skin
  3. Protects against the blue light coming from the screen
  4. Hydrating and Brightening
Cons:
  1. Using too much too often irritated my skin.
Would I repurchase or Recommend?

This is a refreshing product that is easy to carry around. The fact that it protects from white/blue light from the computer/mobile screens, is pretty unique and I’d recommend this.

Sensitive Skin Alert?

No. Especially formulated for Indian Skin.

Dr Sheth’s Basic Brightening Daily Cleanser

My Experience with Dr Sheth’s Basic Brightening Daily Cleanser

Packaging

Comes in a dark pump packaging. While I liked the fact that the bottle is dark and the integrity of the ingredients is maintained, I was thoroughly annoyed with the pump dispenser of the bottle not working.

Colour & Texture

It’s a light runny gel with red beads in it. The beads are soft and not exfoliating.

Fragrance

No fragrance as such.

Ease of Application

The application was bothersome because of the pump that did not work. But the product itself is lovely. It lathers well and a little goes a long way.

My Experience

This product has been a really good and gentle daily cleanser for my combination skin. It has effectively removed nonwaterproof makeup. For waterproof makeup, double cleansing is needed as with any other face wash. This did not dry my skin out nor did it cause any breakouts.

A reliable daily use product.

Overall Performance of Dr Sheth’s Basic Brightening Daily Cleanser

Pros:
  1. Lathers well
  2. Not harsh on the skin
  3. Has brightening beads that are gentle and release nourishment
  4. Free from nasties

  7. Not drying
Cons:
  1. The packaging pump doesn’t work
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

I love the product but I was majorly upset with the packaging as the pump did not work at all. This disappointment aside the product is really good and actually effective.

And recently, I had a chance to attend the digital video launch of Atittude, their skincare and beauty care range.

Ok,back to the point now :P . While reading her post, I saw she mentioned about her “Kelly” handbag. I had no idea what it was! I googled it and came to know why she called it that :P  I have heard the word Tote Bag, Satchel Bag,Messenger Bags,Hobo bags etc…but I really cannot differentiate between them all!

So I thought, it would be a really fun post,if I can tell which handbag is which! Consider this as your introduction to the fabulous world of Handbags! Handbags 101 if you please :D

# The Tote Bag

I have been hearing this name being used for handbags,for the past 10 years only. Actually,this has been the go to travel bag for ladies since 1940! It was finally in 1990s,that these bags became a fashion statement after Kate Spade started carrying them as designer bags. A tote bag is basically a large shopping/women’s bag with two handles. It always has an open top..The Kelly bag is a specially designed tote bag by Hermes. It is considered to be the most expensive  and exclusive status symbol. In common parlance any tote with the signature lock design  is now being referred to the Kelly Style. It was named after the legendary Hollywood actress Grace Kelly.In this photo, Deepika is carrying the Tom Ford Jennifer Handbag in Maroon. It costs  Rs 1.65 Lakh+  :P
