“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.” Marcus Aurelius
The inter-connection between smell, the brain and emotion.
Kātha Soma’s™ mind/body therapeutics nurture emotional well-being via the olfactory pathway. Our fragrant blends utilize the olfactory pathway (smell perception) to subtly affect the brains limbic system. The limbic system, specifically the amygdala and hippocampus have a role in sensory processing, emotion, mood, memory, time perception, and behavior.
Our fragrant blends are not perfume fragrances. Our proprietary blends are derived from select (pure) botanicals that communicate with the olfactory receptors in the upper part of the nose which then generate an impulse that is passed to the brain along the olfactory nerve.
