Before understanding whether pheromones work or not it is important that you understand what they are! In scientific terms,pheromones are the chemicals excreted by one member of a species to elicit a specific response in members of the same species. It is these secretions that explain how ants follow a trail to your home, bees organize an attack and humans form attractions.
Natural versus Additives
As you probably already know pheromones, are naturally excreted, so why would anyone need to purchase products that include these chemicals? As you go through your daily activities your body emits these chemicals, however daily showering, antiperspirants, colognes and even your clothing can block the transmission.
Are you lonely? Perhaps you have confidence issues? Using pheromone massage oil or other products can bolster your confidence and have a proven track record of attracting the opposite sex. Other “side effects” of these types of products may include:
As with any other personal product, you should be aware of the ingredients and in this case the pheromones. These will vary from one male pheromones product to the next, however the most popular include but are not limited to:
Pheromone products may be scented or unscented, depending on the preference of the user. Do you have a favorite cologne or perfume but simply want a little kick to the effects? Choose an unscented pheromone additive. Of course, it never hurts to try new things, including wonderfully scented massage oils, sprays and specially designed colognes. Either type of product can be effective and really comes down to personal choice.
At the end of the day people want to know one thing, what are the possible results of using pheromones? This is a hotly debated topic with professionals on both sides of the issue. In the end, there is evidence that the transmission of human hormone chemicals (pheromones) can alter the behavior and feelings of those of the same species. Studies are ongoing as to the full range of possibilities, including a treatment for anxiety and PMS symptoms. (University of Chicago)
Perhaps the best indicators are the reviews and responses of consumers who have used these products. There are thousands of satisfied customers out there reporting fantastic results with pheromones, there are also some who make opposite claims. Perhaps the best review put it succinctly: “if you go into it with realistic expectations…”
If you struggle to make a connection with members of the opposite sex, why not give nature a bit of a helping hand?Pheromones are a natural occurring chemical designed to elicit specific responses in members from the same species. Modern living has reduced the effectiveness of this natural phenomenon through frequent showering and heavy colognes.
