Odor is the most memorable of man’s senses, and it is one of the most subtle. just a hint of an odor can atrack or repel a member of a oppose sex. A study in scientific American illustrates this. Women were asked to select between tee shirts, which have been slept in over night by various men. In almost every case they selected a shirt which have been worn by a man of the opposite gene pool. They were somehow to discern the difference almost at an instinct level.
The result would be a better match for strengthening their gege pool. It correlated previous studies with other animals. The only exception was when they were pregnant or using birth control pills, which imitates prenancy. Add in the new recognition of pheromones, the practice of aromatherapy and aromachology and we begin to see the degree and effect which odor can play in our lives. Call now at 888 937-3239
Aromatherapy : involves essential oils and massage to make us feel better. the aroma is just part of the therapy.
Aromachology : is the study of how fragrance molecules create nerve impulses to influence our mood and behaviors.
Pavlovian : a conditioned response. You smell chocolate chip cookies and feel like you have to eat some.
Olfaction : This sounds simple enough, but it involves a great deal and is just beginning to be understood, even today.
Direct : action on the brain itself, like a drug, jasmine foe example stimulates beta waves in the frontal lobe making a person more alert.
Volatility : is the first requirement. Technically it is the changing from a solid form into a vapor.
Moisture : is the second requirement. If the odor molecule can not combine with water, even at a minute level, it will not react with the nerve endings, which have a watery film on their surface.
Other source : Mold, fungus, mildew, urine, smoke (cigarettes or fire) protein, skunk, petroleum products, dead body (large or small) tear gas, etc.
The recommendation to eliminate the odor problem are
1. Remove the source
2. Clean the source area
3. Recreate conditions and deodorize
4. Seal the source (if necessary)
1. Digestion, use of enzymes
2. oxidation, Adding oxygen to breakdown organic matter that causes odor.
3. Counteraction/Modification, We can disguise a malodor with a stronger more pleasant odor.
4. Disinfectant or sanitizers, If the source of the odor is (microbial) living microorganism we can kill it using various types of sanitizers.
5. filtering, The use of an absorbent or adsorbent material to capture the odor molecules.
6. Combinations. Obviously we can combine the various treatments in a proper sequence to overcome even the most stubborn odors.
