So what do your results mean?
Your love language is: Words of affirmation
The best gift for you is: MOOD, the gift that cares about your happiness
People with this love language love to hear positive and encouraging words often. Chronic stress has become a natural part of life during the current climate for many and aside from just the physical health implications, it can also increase the risk for depression and anxiety and affect the area of the brain responsible for regulating emotions and memory. It can be important for your loved ones to know what they mean to you and for you to vocalize your appreciation, but sometimes that affirmation may not have as powerful an impact amidst the stress they are experiencing. The formula in our MOOD supplement helps to reduce stress and cortisol levels while stabilizing mood, and so in turn your loves ones can receive those words of affirmation from a better frame of mind.
Your love language is: Quality time
The best gift for you is: NOOTRO-FOCUS, the gift that improves your quality of time
People with this love language like to spend meaningful, uninterrupted time in their relationships. In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, many of us continue to experience feelings of stress, frustration and anxiety. It’s important to remind ourselves that time spent with ourselves or loved ones is valuable and every moment has the potential to be extraordinary. How can we be mindful of staying present? NOOTRO-FOCUS supports mental clarity, reduces anxiety and sharpens your focus, to ensure that you get the most out of your time.
Your love language is: Acts of service
The best gifts for you are: MAGNESIUM EASE and subscriptions, the gifts that all of us deserve
People with this love language appreciate when their partners take initiative to make their lives easier by doing something for them. Many of us struggle to live up to the ideals we see on TV, in ads and on social media but every small, kind act can be so valued. Consider what you can do for yourself or a partner to feel cared for, such as massaging the skin with our MAGNESIUM EASE topical supplement which is designed to help ease stress and improve sleep. Together the ingredients efficiently aid relaxation and reduce muscle tension, ensuring this act of service gives back.
Acts of service could also be things you do to make life easier. We offer monthly subscription programmes, so our formulas can arrive directly to you or a loved one’s door, without any hassle.
People with this love language love physical touch and other displays of physical affection. It’s our human nature to crave physical touch. Over the last year, the pandemic has meant a lot of us have experienced less human contact and physical touch, resulting in what scientists call “skin hunger” In these times, it’s important to embrace ourselves as we would our loved ones. The skin is the largest organ in the body and a reflection of our mind and body health. Our skincare supplements focus on improving skin health to make those moments of physical touch even more impactful.
Your love language is: Receiving gifts
The best gift for you is: FUNCTIONAL FRAGRANCE, the ultimate ‘just because’ gift
People with this love language enjoy when their partner shows love through sentimental items. The importance of scent in our daily lives is often underplayed. Smell is the first of our senses to be activated when we’re born, with some studies showing that we can even smell while in the womb. Cognitive function and the olfactory system are closely linked, as smells can trigger both emotional and physiological responses. Put simply, scent is one of the fastest ways to alter our emotional state. We can learn to use our olfactory system strategically, influencing our brain to release dopamine and serotonin in order to feel good. Our unisex anti-stress FUNCTIONAL FRAGRANCE is the gift to help relax, reset and feel good at any time, anywhere.
