Essential relaxation with essential oils and a sprinkle of Paris

Chaque fois que je sens l'odeur de pain au levain mon esprit clignote revenir à cette boulangerie à Paris whie je waitied pour lui ...

It was the summer of 2013, the cars whistled by in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, the Eiffel tower dominated the skyline like an old friend whose roots seemed to extend well below the city.

  I sat in this little pastry shop immune to the hustle and bustle all around me, loosely wrapped in my summer dress I had forgotten all my responsibilities at home as I spiritedly embraced the summer warmth that beamed all around me.

Every time I go to a bakery and I get that sudden smell of fresh baked baguettes my senses flood back to me and I can still remember sitting in that shop with my espresso, baguette and the slight breeze careening around me while I waited for him…

It’s incredible how the mind works and how it can be so profoundly influenced by smell and how that can affect the body.  Some smells serve to ignite small parts of the brain’s memory and other fragrances work subconsciously to heal and that’s truly why I enjoy using essential oils.

If you ever visited my home you would be privy to a variety of Saje essential oils. When deciding how to introduce healing scents into our office I knew they had to serve a purpose and be of benefit to our patients, if even at just that subconscious level.

Currently you’ll find a specially selected oil helping you relax when you enter, Liquid Sunshine, hinted with citrus fruits of grapefruit, orange, lime, mandarin and a highlight of bergamot.

Grapefruit – Genus: Citrus paradisi, associated with reducing stress and anxiety and a topical antiseptic
Orange - Alleviates anxiety, anger, depression and certain bodily inflammations
Lime - Antidepressant and antiarthritic
Mandarin – Along with being a common sedative, it’s action is also prominently associated with reducing stress and anxiety
Bergamot - The therapeutic properties of bergamot oil include properties as an analgesic, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibiotic and anti-spasmodic

I think it’s easy to see why we would choose this oil for the office, we’re all keenly aware that for some stress and anxiety can be associated with a dental office and we wanted to make sure that this was a place where people could relax while benefitting from treatment at the same time.
