Do you remember the smell that would waft from your grandma’s kitchen when she would make her famous apple pie? Or what about the smoky odor of burgers and brats on the grill at a summer barbecue?
Smells have the power to bring you right back to a certain time and place. But they also have immense power when it comes to our day-to-day lives.
Did you know that scents can reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and decrease stress levels?
At Grab Green, fragrances are one of the most important parts of our products. We love them for their incredible benefits, but we also put a lot of effort into our fragrances blends to make sure they are safe for our customers and the environment.
Our incredible fragrances are the result of organic synthesis: the union of natural and safe synthetic elements. These fragrances are identical to those that are naturally produced, and they also offer the widest range of fragrance types as well as the best experience and value.
Now, you may be wondering why a synthetic fragrance blend is better than a natural fragrance.
One major benefit is that synthetic blends are not as expensive as essential oils, which means that we can bring incredible-smelling products to you for less. Synthetic blends also last longer and can smell stronger than natural fragrances.
In keeping with our mission to be eco-responsible, our blends actually reuse waste from pulp and paper industries. Resources such as terpene are left over from the manufacturing of pulp and paper and would otherwise be thrown away. We take terpene and other resources from these industries and safely combine them with our fragrance ingredients.
We LOVE how creative and resourceful the fragrance industry is in utilizing the remnants of manufacturing. We get amazing scents that touch our lives, while also helping save the planet.
Let’s get back to the benefits of the fragrances themselves, now that we know how safe and eco-friendly our blends are.
There is a wide variety of studies out there that reveal fragrances create a positive role in our lives. We believe that scents are powerful and transformative for anybody in any situation, but there are a few key benefits we like to focus on.
Many of you may have heard how impressive lavender is as a scent, but it’s even more dynamic and important than we think. The International Journal of Neuroscience found that lavender possesses a strong effect on both improving moods and making people feel more relaxed. Given the hustle and bustle and stress of so many of our lives today, those effects of lavender are even more essential for us.
Another important impact of lavender is its ability to improve the quality of sleep. When we are happier and more relaxed, it makes sense that we sleep better and deeper. We’re big fans of our lavender and vanilla-scented Laundry Detergent Pod when it comes to a good night’s sleep. Wash your sheets with one of our pods, and you’ll be relaxed and asleep before your head hits the pillow.
In addition to improving sleep, certain smells also have the power to decrease stress. Research conducted at Yale University found that some fragrances, such as bergamot, lemongrass, and lavender, can ward off panic attacks in some people and can bring down stress levels.
Similarly, the scent of vanilla has been found to comfort patients in hospital settings. The Sloan Kettering Cancer Center found that using a vanilla fragrance reduces patients’ anxiety levels specifically while going through MRI procedures. Using vanilla in many other contexts can have the same incredible effects.
Just as smells can evoke specific memories, they can also calm down our nervous systems and root us back to the present. Incorporating these powerful scents into our lives can make such an incredible impact on our well-being.
The amazing benefits of fragrances are a large part of our Grab Green products, and we’re happy that organic synthesis allows us to make great-smelling products while keeping our environmental responsibility in mind.
We love all our Grab Green scents and hope that you have been able to find your favorite!
