Olfactory Nostalgia with Rebecca Faria
At In Fiore, we believe the skin is a sense organ and scent initiates healing. Olfactory Nostalgia is a look at medicinal triggers, scented memories, and the feelings that ensue when taking in a distinct ingredient.
Meet Rebecca Faria, the Los Angeles-based lymphatic drainage expert, who has created a patented technique that blends manual lymphatic drainage with an array of equipment and various modalities (think ultrasound, radiofrequency, and endermologie). Rebecca, who's atelier is known as Detox by Rebecca, has become the go-to in LA for utilizing Brazilian lymphatic drainage massage, banishing puffiness, boosting circulation, and minimizing water retention. And no wonder. Her clients include Ariana Grande, Hailey Bieber, and the Kardashians.
“Lemongrass has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. In addition, I notice that this aroma raises the energy of any environment, bringing a feeling of peace due to the fresh, clean, and unique smell, which only lemongrass scent has! ”
– Rebecca Faria
What & Where:
Founder of Detox by Rebecca, based in Beverly Hills.
Lemongrass reminds me of my grandmother's house in Brazil. She always made lemongrass tea, which was practically a first-aid to any problem that occurred in the family—whether physical or emotional. I associate this scent with the peace of being with a loved one. The aroma also gives me a feeling of wellbeing, cleanliness, and comfort.
Perfumery as Medicine:
I use lemongrass essential oil every day in my studio, where I take care of my clients' wellbeing. Lemongrass has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. In addition, I notice that this aroma raises the energy of any environment, bringing a feeling of peace due to the fresh, clean, and unique smell, which only lemongrass scent has! This combination reduces people's anxiety and allows me to perform a physical and mental healing treatment for my clients.
