Recently we had a little chat with the Founder of Coma Organics, Christian Burkhardt and we went deep on all things emotions.
Our bodies and minds are intrinsically interconnected, with each supporting and influencing the other. Emotions play a crucial role in how we think and behave, particularly because they influence the decisions we make about our lives. The emotions you experience are formed from daily observations or experiences.
Although emotions are not physically visible, the interpretation of these emotions can be seen. Facial expressions change according to how we feel, when someone is happy they smile, and they are sad they may cry. But that’s not all. Emotions trigger certain hormones which influence the physical body, either in a supportive or unsupportive way.
For instance, when we are happy we produce endorphins. These hormones reduce the perception of pain and can also act as a mood booster. Opposingly, when we are angry, we produce adrenaline. A high level of adrenaline causes high blood pressure, increased body temperature and blood flow. These symptoms can worsen the skin condition for someone suffering with eczema. Anxiety and chronic stress expose our body to unhealthy and persistently elevated levels of stress hormones like cortisol, which may also change the way blood clots. All of these factors can set the stage for a heart attack or stroke.
It is evident that emotions dramatically impact the physical body. As such, it has become increasingly important to address our emotional state and actively improve our health and well-being. There are many ways to balance our emotions, these include activities such as yoga, meditation, sport, or any activity that can calm or lift your mood.
Surprisingly, the future of emotional balance may lie in skincare. It is well known that aromatherapy, the use of essential oils to balance specific emotional imbalances through our respiratory passages, is highly effective. But wouldn’t it be great to actively influence emotions by applying a skincare product? New technologies have discovered that our skin is able to synthesise happy neurochemicals and connect directly with our brain pleasure areas. The skin microbiota can be stimulated to produce happiness neurochemicals to feel and at the same time look better.
A different and unique approach of skincare routine just has started. This new research aligns with the philosophy of Coma Organics, as their products focus on the interconnected relationship of the mind, body and soul.
All Coma Organics products are designed to nourish the mind, body, skin and soul. All products are formulated with the profound understanding that the skin and mind are intimately connected.
