Want to relieve stress? Use grass spray

Are you feeling stressed? Have you ever wanted to bottle the green fresh aroma of a forest? Now you can as researchers have developed a new “eau de grass” spray.

Serenascent, which smells like cut grass, claims to make the wearer happier and less stressed.

Professor Lavidis from the University of Queensland’s School of Biomedical Science and Professor Rosemarie Einstein developed the product.

The researchers have developed their spray based on scientific proof that when grass and green leaves are cut at least five chemicals containing stress-relieving properties are released.

The new Serenascent combines three of these chemicals to help reduce the harmful impact of stress on the nervous system.

“Prolonged stress can lead to a number of serious conditions like high blood pressure, heart problems, memory loss, anxiety, depression and the suppression of the body’s ability to fight infections.”

Lavidis said he first had the idea for Serenascent on a memorable trip to Yosemite National Park in America more than 20 years ago.

“Three days in the park felt like a three-month holiday,” he said.

“I didn’t realise at the time that it was the actual combination of feel good chemicals released by the pine trees, the lush vegetation and the cut grass that made me feel so relaxed.”

“Years later my neighbour commented on the wonderful smell of cut grass after I had mowed the lawn and it all started to click into place.”

Lavidis said that the aroma of Serenascent worked directly on the brain, in particular the emotional and memory parts known as the amygdala and the hippocampus.
