How it works

Scent is one of the fastest ways to impact how we feel emotionally. Our sense of smell has a direct connection to 3 important areas of the brain. First, the orbitofrontal cortex, which signifies awareness. Second, the hippocampus, which is linked to memory. And third, the amygdala, which helps us categorise different smells in our mind, and is directly associated with our emotions and mood. FOREST LUNGS uses olfactory technology to replicate molecular compounds produced in forests, phytoncides, which are credited for their health benefits. This includes stress and anxiety reduction, plus boosting the parasympathetic nervous system. Designed to support body and mind against everyday stress.

FOREST LUNGS is inspired by the Japanese concept of forest bathing. Spending time in nature stimulates our parasympathetic nervous system, reducing stress levels. Our anti-stress scent supplement contains olfactory technology inspired by the concept of “medicalising nature”. Made with patented technology that replicates phytoncides, organic compounds produced by trees, believed to play an important role in reducing stress and increasing levels of calm. Spray onto pulse points, inhale for 4 and exhale for 4 for a moment of calm, wherever you are.

The nose has around 450 olfactory receptors responsible for detecting scent. It sends a signal to the brain to decode, which first arrives at the olfactory bulb.

This information is passed on to the limbic system, structures in the brain scientists believe contribute to controlling mood and behaviour.

BODY

The average American now spends over 90% of their time indoors, and by 2050 it’s estimated that 75% of the global population will live in cities. Yet we’re hard-wired to need nature, and it’s been proven to support both our physiological and psychological health. Spending time in nature stimulates our parasympathetic nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety. For those moments when you can’t get outside, FOREST LUNGS is inspired by the concept of “medicalising nature”. Created to replicate the organic compounds produced by plants and trees, believed to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

PEOPLE

Key scent notes in FOREST LUNGS have been sourced ethically and sustainably through global community projects. Indonesian patchouli oil is sourced through a foundation who have funded a project to install energy efficient distillation stills to produce oil sustainably. They also provide training for local workers in good agricultural, administration and financial processes, allowing communities to grow sustainably and independently. Haitian vetiver is also sourced through the foundation via a local supplier, supporting a cooperative of 250 producers from 3 villages. Both have achieved the Ecocert Fair for Life Certification, ensuring fair prices, improved working conditions and full traceability of the ingredient. Cambodian benzoin is grown in Laos, where around 40,000 farmers are involved in harvesting the resin. To support families in the community, the foundation has financed building and extending schools in the area for local children to attend.

PLANET

Every ingredient in FOREST LUNGS has been sourced with sustainability in mind. Our cedarwood is sourced through an upcycling program in Morocco. The scent is extracted from sawdust, usually a waste product of the furniture industry, through molecular distillation. The bergamot oil comes from Calabria, Italy, via our lab’s Responsible Sourcing Programme, and is grown by local producers. Plus, our fragrance bottle is housed in infinitely recyclable glass.

FAQs

Some people report results after the first use, but generally we recommend using for 3-4 weeks before assessing improvements. In our consumer trials FOREST LUNGS was used daily for 30 days, where 87% felt that their everyday stress levels were lower, and 91% felt their anxiety levels were reduced.

FOREST LUNGS uses a combination of sustainability sourced natural extracts and steam-distilled essential oils, alongside safe synthetic extracts. It's not possible for us to create a 100% natural fragrance whilst being environmentally and socially responsible. Many of the extracts in fragrance are rare and hard to source in a sustainable manner, so in these instances we use “natural identical” extracts. The key extracts in the formula, including cedarwood, are sourced from upcycled and sustainable community projects. The formula is non-toxic and free from parabens, phthalates, hexanes, nitromusks and polycyclic musks.

We describe it as smelling green, woody and smoky - like a morning walk in a green pine forest. The key notes in this anti-stress scent are bergamot, benzoin, cedarwood, pine and patchouli.
