Scientific Evidence Supports Positive Effects of Jasmine

Posted by Sabon NYC  |  Mar 7, 2013 10:41:41 AM

Jasmine Flowers

Recent scientific research has found the scent of Jasmine to induce mood enhancing effects such as relaxation, anxiety relief and sleep induction.

According to the “Journal of Biological Chemistry”, researchers tested hundreds of fragrances on both humans and mice to see how they affected the function of GABA (a neurotransmitter that aids to induce calming effects). The fragrance of Jasmine was the strongest in amping up GABA response, similar to the effects of the common drug Valium. “Applications in sedation, anxiety, excitement and aggression relieving treatment and sleep induction therapy are all imaginable. The results can also be seen as evidence of a scientific basis for aromatherapy”, Bochum Professor Hanns Hatt said in a statement.

It is rather (and unfortunately) common for us to suffer from feelings of anxiety, sleep deprivation, stress and the like. If you happen to experience these kinds of symptoms, we recommend you try this natural remedy before turning to synthetic solutions (such as over-the-counter or prescription medicine).

The use of essential oils and aromatherapy as a form of medicine is dated all the way back to the eleventh century. The efficacy of these methods continues to be supported by scientific research today.

We invite you to discover the beneficial effects of this calming fragrance. Jasmine is one of our favorite fragrances, proudly offered as its own line in the collection, including: Deep Exfoliating Body Salt Scrub, The Body Gel Polisher (a daily body exfoliator), Moisturizing Shower Oil, Deep Nourishing Body Lotions, Sorbet Body Gel (a light weight cooling moisture lotion) and Eau de Toilette Perfume.

Jasmine is also the chosen scent of our entire Hair Care Line, made from natural plant extracts found only in the Amazon Rainforest.

Sometimes finding relief is as simple as awarding oneself with personal time, away from any distractions or noise. The Shower (and Bath) makes for a great escape. Try it. Take this time for yourself to slow down, pay attention to your breath and enjoy what the gift of the senses have to offer in this moment.

You may be pleasantly surprised.

How to Keep Your Skin Fresh this Winter

Posted by Sabon NYC  |  Dec 5, 2012 3:52:37 PM

                    How to Keep Your Skin Fresh this SummerHow to Keep Your Skin Fresh this SummerHow to Keep Your Skin Fresh this Summer

It’s a battle every year: the cold weather sweeps in and we’re forced to deal with dry, flaky skin. It’s itchy, uncomfortable, and it looks even worse than it feels. While dry skin can start as a small annoyance, if left untreated it can sometimes lead to dermatitis, a more severe condition characterized by red, bumpy skin inflammation.

Fortunately, most dry skin arises from external causes – like cold weather – and can be nicked with topical care. Here are a few guidelines for ensuring your skin is well taken care of.

  1. Shower sensibly. Long showers can be lovely, but if you stand in the stream for too long while the water is hot, your morning ritual could be working against you. Hot water will wash away the oils your skin already produces. Also, don’t overuse soap when you bathe – it will rob you of soft skin even faster.
  2. Not too wet, not too dry. When you rub on lotion, be sure that your skin is damp before application to work along with the product. As soon as you hop out of the shower is best – your pours will be open and you’ll be wet all over. Just pat down the dry areas of skin before you slather on anything. You’ll trap the moisture better that way.
  3. Use natural products. It’s important to use lotions that are based on natural ingredients. Oils with natural origins are best to gently saturate your skin. Sabon’s body butter is a good choice for especially thirsty skin. It uses a natural triumvirate: shea butter, cocoa butter, and bees’ wax.
  4. Don’t scratch. Even when it seems impossible, you can’t claw at your skin during dry air (and dry skin) season. Itching will only further irritate your skin. Don’t prolong the problem; treat it.
  5. Exfoliate! Especially in the winter, exfoliating is very important. Dry winter skin is the result of dry skin cell build up. As we tend to releive this with only applying heavy creams, many of us forget that the most important ritual to healthy skin is to first exfoliate the dry skin away! Increase your exfoliation routine this season to remove the dead skin cells, and then moisturize the new cells, resulting in healthier, moister skin! Try our Body Scrubs, which we reccommend using 2-3 times per week. This will enhance the skins glow with immediate results!

 

Your skin is your biggest, most vulnerable organ. As cold weather creeps closer and closer, take good care of your skin so you can look and feel better!

Soaks in the City: 6 Healthy Benefits of a Milk Bath

Posted by Sabon NYC  |  Aug 22, 2012 2:26:17 PM

Healthy Benefits of a Milk Bath

Cleopatra wasn’t the ravishing beauty that Hollywood has made us believe – the Greek historian Plutarch describes her alleged exoticism as “itself neither altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her” – but the legend of her radiant skin is anything but a myth.

To achieve such smooth, supple skin, Cleopatra regularly soaked in milk baths, a luxury befitting only a queen; in today’s economy, milk isn’t cheap, and very few people without claim to a throne, crown, and royal subjects can afford such an indulgence.

But even though a true milk bath is out the question for regular folks like us, the concept – and other all-natural ingredients with properties similar to skin-soothing milk – is not.

At our Sabon boutiques in New York City, we often recreate a miniature “milk bath” for our customers right in front their eyes so they can see and feel our products at work.

First we add a dainty scoop of scented bath salts, and as the water is running we drizzle in our bath foam and milky soap. Then, as the bath rises, we sprinkle about three heaping handfuls of mineral powder into the tub. The reaction is instant. Sabon customers watching the demonstration can see the mineral powder react to the warm water and then feel the creamy consistency of the bath that leaves the whole body moisturized, replenished, and silky.

Our milk bath, however, isn’t just about healthy, glowing, exuberant skin. There are other benefits to this decadent escape that only Cleopatra was privy – until now. Take a look at these six reasons you should enjoy a relaxing bath tonight.

1. Release Tension

When you can’t find a good masseur, a warm milk bath is the next best thing to release the bodily tension that causes soreness, tenderness, and other unwanted aches. The heat increases elasticity in your body, allowing it to relax and loosen up. When you’re ready to get out, gently stretch your muscles to take full advantage of this tension reliever before letting your pains slip down the drain.

2. De-Stress from the Day

It's common knowledge that a long soak in the tub allows you to relax and de-stress after a hard day, but did you know that the de-stressing effect of a warm bath is a scientific fact? A study from Osaka, Japan, confirms that after 60 minutes of bathing, subjects experienced a dramatic reduction in cortisol and chromogranin, two sensitive salivary stress markers. Of course, you may not have the time or stamina to soak for an hour, but if you take a shorter bath make sure that it’s uninterrupted so you can effectively find your happy place.

3. Induce Fatigue

If you have trouble sleeping, perhaps a bath before bedtime will help you drift off to dreamland. Fatigue is a common experience after a hot bath because when you’re in the warm water your body dilates your blood vessels causing less blood to reach your brain. In response, your heart speeds up to try to circulate your blood faster. Basically, this is your body’s attempt to cool itself when your body temperature rises, and the fatigue is nature’s way of telling you that your body needs to rest.

4. Expunge Toxins

Run bath water cool enough to prevent scalding but hot enough to make you sweat and you’ll release toxins from your body via perspiration.

5. Increase Circulation

When you bathe, the rate of nourishing blood cells traveling to damaged tissue increases allowing your blood to circulate more easily.

6. Boost Your Immune System

 Not only can the hot bath water potentially kill strains of bacteria that may be lurking on your body, but the stimulation of your vascular and lymph system will decrease the risk of colds and other infections as you wash your troubles away.
