Scent-sational [ comfort zone ]

Of all five senses, smell is most closely linked to memory. When stimulated for beneficial reasons, the sense of smell is a powerful ally to realign the nervous and endocrine systems and to render the mind and body ready for a relaxing, rebalancing experience.

A smell can take you straight back to a specific moment in time, provoking an intensely positive or negative response. A hint of a particular perfume can remind you of someone you haven’t seen for years, whilst a quick sniff of tequila can take you right back to the dodgy haunts you visited throughout your early twenties. (We’re not here to judge – we’ve all been there!)

At the Devonshire Spa, there’s no shortage of beautiful scents floating through our peaceful treatment rooms, which we’re very grateful for (no tequila though, luckily). Not only do they smell amazing, but the ingredients used within the different products all also have positive qualities which are beneficial to your health and wellbeing. We took it upon ourselves to carry out a quick round-up of some of the sweet-smelling products used by Devonshire Spa supplier [ comfort zone ].
