Calm Space Stress Reducing Scent FAQ
Calm Space FAQ


What is calmspace?

It is a compact and portable inhaler with different scents for the episodic treatment of claustrophobia events and/or similar anxiety increasing situations. The scents are all natural with a proprietary blend of essential oils.

How does calmspace work?

Understanding the science remains a burgeoning area of research. The medical profession has found that certain scents provide relief to people who suffer different stressors. Healthy Brands' own clinical testing, and supported by additional academic studies, revealed that people who feel claustrophobic or increase anxiety in enclosed space gained relief from using our inhaler specific to the scent which was most pleasing to that individual. We believe that olfactory receptors are triggered which send signals to the brain to reduce the apparent stress related to the current situation. When someone smells smoke related to a fire, the brain signals the person to flee. We believe our approach is similar in relieving claustrophobic episodes.

Why should I consider calmspace?

There is no other product on the market which allows you to try to treat the episodes related to claustrophobia. It is portable and discreet; it is affordable, and clinically tested. Why not try it? If it does not work, we will refund your money.

Does calmspace work for everyone?

calmspace does not work for everyone as individuals have different reactions to claustrophobic inciting situations, have different degrees of disability associated with this affliction, and may have diminished smelling response. Nevertheless, we have clinically tested the products with positive results in reducing the associated stress of a claustrophobic event. Additionally, academic studies do show a positive physiological response by using scents in an associated confining episode if the scent was appealing to the subject.

Why are several scents of calmspace offered?

We offer a choice of scents as different people react differently to different aromas. Our clinical tests indicated positive results to the choices available and are made by individuals who favor one aroma over another. Again, the science of olfactory receptor signaling is evolving and may offer an explanation in the future to why certain behavior results from certain aromas.

Will calmspace continue to work over time?

If you find relief using the inhaler during a claustrophobic episode, the inhaler should continue to work for you. If you find it does not, please contact us so we can try a different scent. If you are not satisfied with the product, please return it for a full refund.

What if I don't initially respond to calmspace?

Some people may not respond to the inhaler therapy. You may want to put the inhaler closer to your nose prior to an expected or during an episode. If the smell is strong but you do not react positively, please tell us. We can send you a different inhaler to try. If that does not work we will refund your money.
