Does it smell like November?

Hello everyone! I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The days in November seems to be rolling by faster than I realize (probably for you too). I’ve notice Christmas decorations are already being put up in retail stores and houses all around the Silicon Valley.

How do we Know that Scents are Safe? Part 2

Whether the flavors or fragrances are constructed of natural or synthetic ingredients we have established that both can contribute to the list of safe ingredients and to the list of un-safe ingredients.  The origin of the ingredient is a moot point – it is the structure of the ingredient that determines its toxicity / safety profile.  [To be clear, the source can be a differentiating factor IF there are multiple ingredients associated with one source or the other including but not limited to structural isomers of the principal ingredient(s).

Learning in your sleep?

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to sleep the day away and learn what you need to while you are in deep slumber? Teaching verbal information so far has not been much of a success, according to the Weizmann Institute of Science inn Israel. Scent and sound associations however seem more promising. As the New Scientist reports, “While subjects slept, the team played different sounds, each followed by the release of a specific aroma. Just as they would when awake, the sleeping subjects took deeper sniffs in response to pleasant scents and shallower sniffs in response to unpleasant scents.”
