Day to Day Aroma

When you have an herbalist formulating your shampoo & condish, you better believe it’s medicinal. Yes, of course, the Day to Day Shampoo and Conditioner are gentle and beneficial for your scalp and main mane, but I want to let you all know that we take our Day to Day’s to the next botanical dimension…

Our olfactory sense (your ability to whiff and sniff) goes direct to the most ancient part of your brain, the limbic system. The info downloaded by the sense of smell of the earliest mammal ancestors is what got our brains a’growing. That same limbic system is also the place in the brain most connected to the regulation of emotion. The limbic system is channel tuned to memory, both personal, and collective. When we consciously activate the limbic brain, we can transport ourselves in time and adjust our state. 

At Fat and the Moon, we know the power of the limbic system, and because we want to layer your cleansing routine with benefits beyond an incredible hair day, we’ve included some select botanicals in our formulation…olfactory therapeutic...

Frankincense has old school use by Egyptians who burned frankincense to send their prayers up to the sun god. Frankincense purifies yet invites the most noble aspect of ourselves.

They say in herbal medicine, “if someone likes stimulants, give them sedatives”. Petitgrain makes even the most Type A of us just want to chill long enough to soak up her scent. Yuzu actually has some scientific study proclaiming its ability to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is the opposing and balancing aspect to our sympathetic nervous system- think fight or flight. When we activate the parasympathetic N.S. we juice our bods ability to rest & digest. Sympathetic n.s. stimulation is about SURVIVING, parasympathetic stimulation is about THRIVING.

Don’t know about you, but I’m ABOUT having my shampoo and conditioner support me on the path of thriving on the Day to Day.
