How Replacing Synthetic Chemical Cleaners with Natural Ingredients and Therapeutic Scents will Improve Mental Health
November 14, 2019
Therapeutic Benefits of Lavender Scents are extremely powerful - when your brain recognizes a smell, your amygdala fires up to recall a certain memory. These recalls can invoke and awaken certain emotions within ourselves as come with these memories. This process is in thanks to our olfactory senses - the olfactory nerve is what gives us our sense of smell. There is even a whole alternative medicine practice, called aromatherapy, that is dedicated to healing the mind, body and spirit through your olfactory senses. We decided to incorporate this practice into our cleaning product as we believe cleaners should encompass cleanliness of your home and mind. A major scent used in this practice is Lavender, from the Lavandula angustifolia plant. Lavender has actually been used throughout recorded history by the Egyptians, the Romans, and later on in Ancient Greece. Stemming from the Latin word “lavare,” lavender literally means “to wash" so it should come as no surprise that many of its uses are as a scent added to baths, beds, clothes, hair and skin. Lavender Benefits for the Mind and Body The floral yet earthy fragrance of lavender has been shown both in research as well as through anecdotal evidence to promote wellness in mind and body through its ability to relieve stress and anxiety, promote a calm demeanor and elevate mood, as well as help promote a more restful night’s sleep. Stress + Anxiety One of Lavender’s main claims to fame is its ability to manage stress and alleviate anxiety. Acute and chronic stress can both lead to disease within the body so finding ways to reduce and mitigate stressful inputs is crucial to a healthy life. Inhaling the scent of lavender has a calming effect which makes it a potential alternative to traditional prescription medications. The soothing properties of lavender allow it to relieve feelings of nervousness and other symptoms of anxiety. Mood The active compounds in Lavender have sedative as well as mood stabilizing properties. Lavender, like many other plant medicines, interacts with our parasympathetic nervous system, allowing us to relax and create a sense of calm. The effects of Lavender on the brain are so powerful that you can continue to reap the benefits even after the scent has dissipated. Promotes Sleep A good night’s sleep is important to so many of our body’s vital functions and yet many of us do not get enough hours of quality sleep per night. Breathing in the scent of lavender can help you relax both your body and mind so you can get to sleep. Lavender may help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and allow you to get more time in a state of deep sleep. Some have even reported that inhaling lavender before bed helped increase their daytime energy levels. Reduced Chemicals in the Water System Toxic chemicals, such as PCE (tetrachloride) and TCE (trichloroethylene), are often found in synthetic fragrances in order to create a more affordable cost. The problem with these chemicals, is that they get washed down the drain and circumvent septic filtration that then ends up in the drinking water supply. It's proven that concentrations of TCE are associated with neurobehavioral deficits, such as depression and anxiety. By removing these ingredients from products, we can curb the amount of PCE and TCE that ends up in drinking water. Planet Pods Eco Friendly Cleaner Uses Therapeutic Aromas, because mental health matters Lavender is a natural scent that can help you de-stress, elevate your mood and potentially energy levels, as well as help you get a great night’s sleep. Lavender's presence in Planet Pods Eco Friendly Cleaning Product means more than just cleaning your environment, it's your mental and physical health as well.
