By Meera Gandhi
Scents affect our moods, behavior, school and work performance by associating our life experiences with them. So certain scents can be liked or disliked based on our experiences. Our very first experience out of the womb is our sense of smell. The eyes not fully open, our skin covered in umbilical juice our sense of smell is the first thing that is activated on the planet. Directly linked to both our intuition and our memory, scent is the most important of all our senses.
The world today has many stress triggers visible and invisible. While preparing for The Meera Gandhi TV show on B4U TV network in both North America and UAE, I learnt that stress has made a rapid permeation into our lives and can affect everybody between the ages of 6 to 96. The good news is that once we train our minds to manage our lives, stress inadvertently reduces and slowly drifts away. Our brain is capable of handling anything provided we give it simple and effective tools to manage our lives. Meditation, yoga and exercise are very important in maintaining the mind, body and soul balance. All our senses play a vital part in every aspect of our lives. We recall memories with certain smells – could be positive and negative. Surrounding yourself with Calming aids like “The Giving” a super high-quality scent has been created to have a calming, happy effect on the body. 28 of all natural ingredients like chamomile, patouchi, lavender, jasmine and other herbs to mimic the smell of rain and the Earth have an immediate effect on both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Pure ingredients combined into a candle and fragrance and soon in a soap, body bath, Shampoo and conditioner is an AMAZING TOOL, to feel great, smell amazing and staying calm in every situation.
After a decade of working on this with Mane in the South of France – the fragrance GIVING by Meera Gandhi was born. It’s truly a gift to anyone who uses it. The proceeds go back into the foundation and so Giving is certainly the gift that keeps giving. The bottle, made by Baccarat, comes with a crystal stopper instead of a metallic atomizer, so the fragrance doesn’t change molecularity when it comes in contact with the metal. There is no other such fragrance in the world and that’s all there is to it.
Scent has been key to survival and it’s very important we give this sensory perception key importance in our lives today. This is the tool that will stabilize and make humans more joyful and happy and most aware. Qualities needed to stay centered and enjoy the world we are in today.
