How does the Ascents® System work?
The Ascents® Diffuser utilizes ambient scenting technology to diffuse pure essential oil blends in the form of Ascents™ Gels: the first-ever solid essential oil gels that perform like a liquid, with none of the drawbacks of bottled oils.
The active ingredients in Focus No. 04 have been studied in clinical environments as treatments for attention deficits and to help increase concentration. Peppermint aromatherapy in particular is thought to work due to the effect of the organic compounds that comprise the oil -- such as menthol -- on human physiology.
It is believed that when inhaled, menthol directly stimulates the hippocampus (the part of the brain’s limbic system that controls emotions and emotional behavior), telling the brain to “wake up.” This makes Focus No. 04 an ideal therapy for those who wish to enhance mental acuity and sharpen memory.
The Ascents® System requires no water or heat in order to initiate diffusion; therefore, the process does not alter the delicate, therapeutic compounds contained in our 100% natural essential oil formulas in any way. This cold diffusion delivery method ensures that the delicate active organic compounds found within the oils maintain their full therapeutic value. It produces no smoke or ozone, resulting in an exceptionally clean diffusion.
It took me a while to get feedback throughout my clinic, (but) they have been a big hit!
