THE FOREST

The sense of wellbeing you experience when you are in nature isn’t just a feeling, it’s science.

Interaction with nature is proven to support our physiological health, specifically reducing anxiety and stress. We have never been less connected to nature, and we have never needed it more*.

Using science to work with nature, FOREST LUNGS is a sensory supplement designed to support the reduction of everyday stress. Inspired by the concept of ‘medicalizing nature’, it fuses olfactory chemistry and patented technology to replicate the molecular compounds produced in forests called phytoncides. Phytoncides are credited for the positive health benefits associated with forest bathing, namely stress reduction, anxiety reduction and boosting the parasympathetic (rest) nervous system. 

In consumer trials, FOREST LUNGS was found to reduce everyday stress and anxiety within 30 minutes of use, with significant effect over a 30 day period.

Your olfactory system is one of the fastest ways to impact your cognitive state. Of the five senses, scent is the only one with a direct line to three of the most important areas of the brain: the orbitofrontal cortex, which signifies awareness, the hippocampus, which is linked to memory, and the amygdala, which helps us sort smells and is directly associated with our emotions and mood.

medicalising Nature

Imagine going to the doctor and getting a prescription for a walk in the park instead of a drug. That concept isn’t as far-fetched as you might think—in fact, there is now enough science about the health benefits of nature to make the medical profession sit up and listen.

Dr. Robert Zarr, a pediatrician, writes prescriptions for parks at his office in Washington, D.C. to treat obsesity, diabetes, anxiety and depression. He is part of a growing community who are spearheading the medicalization of nature. The concept has been attracting medical experts all over the world, and in July the NHS made multi-million £ investments into ‘green prescriptions’ as a response to the pandemic.

So what does the medical community accredit these health benefits to? Research shows that specific compounds emitted by trees can improve immunity, stress, anxiety and in some cases may increase life span.

how it works

FOREST LUNGS contains phytoncides, volatile organic compounds emitted from all parts of trees which are believed to play an important role in plant immunity by preventing the growth of attaching organisms. Scientific research shows that phytoncides—once inhaled—significantly increase levels of natural killer (NK) cells in the human immune system. Phytoncides are also credited for the positive health benefits associated with forest bathing, namely stress reduction, anxiety reduction and boosting the parasympathetic (rest) nervous system.

what is a sensory supplement

There’s a powerful connection between cognitive function and the olfactory system; certain scents can elicit certain reactions with the body, both physically and psychologically. The process begins in the nose, where around 450 olfactory receptors detect smells and send signals to the brain for it to decipher. The part of the brain where this information arrives first is called the olfactory bulb, which processes the signal and then passes information about the smell to other areas closely connected to it, collectively known as the limbic system. The limbic system comprises a set of structures within the brain that are regarded by scientists as playing a major role in controlling mood, memory, behaviour and emotion.

FOREST LUNGS is a fragrance with function: the formula contains a patented and natural scent accord containing phytoncides which is woody and smoky, with clean resin and tart citrus notes, to reduce anxiety and stress.
