Our bodies naturally produce human pheromone chemicals, which are found on the skin of all humans. Pheromones are substances that serve as catalysts for our sixth sense. Each person we encounter gives off a unique signature of these virtually scentless chemicals, which affect us primarily on a subconscious level.
These chemicals act as messengers and relay to us information about a persons personal attributes such as sex appeal, temperament, and so on. It is through this chemosensory link where we form mutual attraction. Human attractiveness via our conscious senses are no longer seen as the only link in bringing people together, scent by way of human pheromones proves yet another important link in the biology of intra-personal and societal network connections.
Pheromones do have a detectable, trace scent of their own, however the scent ofpheromones generally lies outside the range of conscious detection via olfactory nerves within the noses of most persons. The special organ within your nose called the “accessory olfactory bulb” is responsible for detecting these subconscious odors that are then relayed to the hypothalamus within the brain, which causes sexual excitation or other primal effects which pheromones elicit.
Scientific research shows our reactions to pheromones to be predictable, and capable of duplication. Pheromones make up perhaps the most important indicator in human attractiveness, over all out weighing our responses to even visual cues. Indeed the term “chemical attraction” is scientifically accurate.
When pheromones first reached public attention, there became an immediate demand for the product. The possibility of spraying on a “potion” that could attract the objects of our sexual desires proves as coveted today as it has for hundreds maybe thousands of years. Now with pheromone technology we have come perhaps closer than ever before in making such a “potion”. However, as with almost every revolutionary idea, discovery, or product, exploitation follows. Pheromones are not magic potions that when sprayed on will manipulate the unsuspecting for our selfish purposes, however they can work to amplify our own unique pheromone signatures to make us more desirable.
