The power of scents

Welcome to the world of aromatic powers. The human sense of smell is the strongest among all of our 5 senses. In modern times we have forgotten the utmost importance of scents.  

At Hippa, we work with craft masters with whom we have developed our four scents, each one with its own uniqueness, abilities and natural origin.  

We have highlighted below the qualities for you to determine which one is in harmony with your life.

Why scents matter

Scents bring back memories and emotions, carry you into a different atmosphere, and set the mood of the ambient, to make a house smell like home. The act of lighting a candle is an act of self-love and an ode the present moment. In a life where we give it all to become the best version of ourselves we need a space to wind down and to ease our senses.

By exposing yourself to natural scents you not only make a conscious move but also empower your body with herbs that have been used for over thousands of years to create unique healing abilities.

Our essentials are all named in Portuguese, and each scent consists of a flower and a number. The numbers were chosen by a numerologist (numerology is a study about the numbers and the energy behind them). So each scent has a number that expresses the energy of the blend and its purpose. 

Each scent was intentionally created to be a powerful tool for today's women. Botanica boosts the energy required to pursue their dreams and spikes the feeling of a well-balanced life. Serena is for those who want to develop their spiritual and tranquil-vibe side of life. Loba is the expression of feminine intuition and sensuality essence. And Saudade is the different aspects of love emanating in their lives.
