permanent ban on pesticides that are harmful to bees

The EU has voted for a permanent ban on pesticides that are harmful to bees

A statement by the United Nations stated that the ‘Decline of honey bees is now a global phenomenon’, today the EU has voted for a permanent ban on pesticides that are harmful to bees. Earlier this year a report released by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) found that most uses of neonicotinoid pesticides represent a risk to wild bees and honeybees. Under the new regulations, the use of  imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam outdoors will now be banned in EU member states.

These chemicals have been linked to large-scale extinctions in bee population, and are known to impact on their learning and memory. Bees face chronic exposure to these chemicals, as they persist in the environment and are dispersed to other plants besides the ones they were initially applied to. There is currently a ban on neonicotinoid use on flowering crops in the EU, however the new report suggests this is not sufficient, as the use of these chemicals in any outdoor setting poses a high risk to bees. It also identified that high risk does not result from direct exposure to non-flowering crops, but to subsequent indirect exposure from field margins, adjacent crops and succeeding crops.  The report confirms the significant threat these neonicotinoid pesticides pose to our bees, however, indoor use of the pesticides in greenhouses, for example was not found to have the same harmful effects,

Insects make up about two-thirds of all life on Earth, but the last 25 years has witnessed the most dramatic decline in the numbers of flying insects having dropped by 75 per cent. Insects play an essential role for life on earth as pollinators of plants and prey for larger animals, their loss would and is already having a profound impact on our World.

This wonderful news today from the EU gives us hope that we can halt the decline in our Bee populations, and with our help  we can over time hopefully reverse this unrepresented loss of our insect life, especially our hard working Bees. One of the ways we can help save the bees is to plant flowers, by planting flowers especially ones indigenous to your area we provide food to feed the bees and other valuable pollinators. By planting a pollinator-friendly garden you are not just saving our Bees, we are ultimately saving ourselves and the Planet.

Relieve Stress and get a Better Night’s Sleep

Having a good night’s sleep can make a big difference in your quality of life. Just ask any ‘New’ Parents how sleep deprivation has impacted on their lives. In the busy world we live in, it is not only parents of young children that are not getting enough snooze time but we could all do with a better night’s sleep. How do we relieve stress and get a better night’s sleep and why is it so important?

Studies have proven that sleep deprivation can adversely affect the brain and your cognitive function, a study by the Harvard Medical School and the University of California at Berkeley revealed, that sleep deprivation causes the brain to become incapable of putting an emotional event into the proper perspective and incapable of making a controlled, suitable response to the event. Put in a ‘Nut Shell’, even the simplest tasks become harder or impossible to preform. It not only effects our physical but also our mental health.

There are so many things that we can do to help improve our sleep patterns, from insuring that we have a comfortable mattress and pillows, that has not exceeded their life expectancy. To making sure that we regulate our body’s clock, by scheduling a routine of the same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends. Try to avoid eating a heavy meal or having that last sneaky peak at a mobile device before bedtime, your body needs time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity.

An excellent way to help relieve stress and unwind so that we can all have a better nights sleep is to ‘Use our sense of Smell’, our olfactory nerve is connect directly to the brain and sends signals directly to many different parts of the brain, including the limbic system and amygdala, which are in charge of emotions, mood, and memory. So why not use a scent or perfume to help relieve stress, relax the body, and promote better sleep. A number of essentials oils have been shown in studies to lower blood pressure, heart rate, and skin temperature as well as changing brain waves to a more relaxed state.

From Lavender to Bergamot, Ylang Ylang to Clary Sage , these are just some of the wonderful essential oils that have been used in Aromatherapy to tap into the healing power of scents in order to help calm, de-stress and relax both your mind and body. So why not try and find one that is suitable to you.

Why are some fragrances easier to detect than others?

Just like flowers, natural essences and perfumes vary in fragrance strength. Our noses, more readily detect heady spice fragrances than delicate floral ones. Depending on, the effect you desire, you may choose your Pairfum product based on the, subtleness of the effect you want to achieve. It has also been proven that over time, our noses can, become accustomed to a fragrance which we have been using for a period of time.

Once you find yourself not detecting a fragrance, move it into another room, or a different position within the room for a period of time and you will be amazed at the difference!

Why is the rate of evaporation faster for some fragrances than others?

Fresh green citrus notes are more volatile and will evaporate more quickly than the, heavy, woody, vanilla style fragrances that will linger. The frequency with which you,turn the reeds and the air conditions in which the diffuser is placed can also affect, the longevity of the product .If the room is large with air-conditioning or drafts, the, product will ‘evaporate’ much more quickly than if it is placed in a small, room with, minimal ventilation.

PAIRFUM World's First Perfumer Eau de Parfum: KNOW YOUR PERFUME PERSONALITY

A Woman – the World’s first Perfumer!

Let’s celebrate International Fragrance Day

21st March 2018

We have been in love with and enjoying Perfume for thousands of years, from the moment of the first recorded Perfumer, a Lady named ‘Tapputi’ or also referred to as ‘Tapputi – Belatekallim’, which means overseer or keeper of a Palace.

She is mentioned in a tablet dated around 1200 BC in Mesopotamia. In her fragrances she used flowers, oil, Calamus (also knows as Sweet Flag, that resembles the Iris), Cyperus, Myrrh and Balsam. She then added water or other solvents, then distilled and filtered it several times. This is also believed to be the oldest reference to a still.

So, not only is the wonderful Lady the first recorded Perfumer in the World, she was also a Chemist.

From references in the Book of Exodus which describes a sacred perfume that consisted of liquid myrrh, fragrant cinnamon, fragrant cane, and cassia, to the Bronze Age Perfumeries of Cyprus, we have continued our love affair with perfume.

Today on International Fragrance Day, 21st March 2018, why not celebrate the wonderful gift of scent, from your favourite Flower to the bouquet of your most loved Wine or Spirit, freshly baked Bread, to the aroma of a wonderful meal.

The Scents of Life surround us on a daily basis and remind us of the past, the present and the wonderful future to come.

From PAIRFUM London to all Perfume Lovers all over the World, we wish you a “Bouquet-filled Day”. xx

The Dress of Many Colours - perfume, home fragrance and body care

A Dress of Many Colours that My Mama made for ME @Pairfum

 

Who could have imagined that “The Dress of Many Colours”could cause such a storm and have us debating whether it is ‘White & Gold’ or Blue & Black’ ??

Colours like Perfume are very evocative and emotive, making us ‘Feel and Look Good’ and Colours like Perfume also change with light. So which #Colour-Group did you fit into #?

Many #scientific reasons may be put forward as to #WHY?, but we at Pairfum feel that #Personality & #Mood also plays a large part in the #Colour-debate.

Did #anyone #else see ‘Blue & Gold’ or ‘Black & White ???
