We are the first in the world to
prepare antibacterial filling with a
certification Cosmébio for the
device Scent generator that will
kill bacteria and viruses on the
premises, and even H1N1 virus.
years of research and testing we were able to find the right
combination of natural ingredients and natural extracts, which
possess the right characteristics to fight various seasonal
disease bacteria, viruses, bacteria and simultaneously disinfect
premises. We have successfully tested it on the H1N1 virus.
New antibacterial filling will be available at the end of autumn
It will be completely simple to use like the rest of our
fillings. You will simply insert it in any Scent generator, turn
on the device and within minutes your room will be cleaned of
most bacteria and viruses, yet you, your customers and employees
will be safe from a wide variety of infections.

Representatives of the BHRI Institute have presented our
innovative device, the Scent generator Classic. The
inner space was pleasantly scented with the fragrance of
white chocolate, which improves mood because it contains
endorphins that cause a feeling of pleasure. It is known
that increased secretion of endorphins reduce the
feeling of pain and loneliness.

We cooperate with the Society Društvo Sožitje Kranj
In the BHRI institute we are more
than happy that the scent has an exceptional effect on children
with special needs, which appears immediately.
(My World, Society’s Newsletter)
Društvo Sožitje Kranj was founded 40 years ago. Members of the
Society are persons with intellectual disabilities, their
parents, experts from various fields and other people of good
will, who decide to cooperate from compassionate and other
There are 430 members; out of those 148 have intellectual
disabilities. Members are participating in the developmental
kindergarten Mojca, attending primary school Helena Puhar, work
in the guardian-working center Kranj, with two units in Tržič
and Škofja Loka.
Activities of the Society are aimed at all forms of integration,
social networking and care of valuable spending of leisure time.
However, the forms of social programs at the local level are the
We have already concluded he spring working weekend seminar that
was held in Terme Topolšica and it was intended for pleasant
socializing, dancing, swimming ... and creating. Thus, parents
and persons with intellectual disabilities were happy to make
Easter cards and Easter eggs. Art therapy helps people with
special needs so that their feelings and fears can be poured
into the product they create. It such way they build
self-confidence, self-consciousness, which has tranquilizing
effects. Workshops were held in a nice relaxing atmosphere,
which is very important.
This year we introduced an important novelty. A special device
that dispersed special natural essences has been installed into
the room, in which the workshops were held. The essences had a
very positive effect on the mood of children and parents.
We used the essence, which is reminiscent of forest fruits; it
improves mood and inspires for new ideas. It harmonizes and
strengthens the mind and the immune system. Participants were
enthusiastic, cheerful and happy, the scent reminded them of a
celebration. Everybody diligently participated in creating, the
atmosphere was cheerful but working. The overall motivation
visibly increased. At dancing activities everybody happily
participated by leaping up and down even those, who normally
sited in chairs and were just observers. The facial massage
activated and put to ease even the most hyperactive.
Also in art group of the Society, in which more than a third of
participants has Down syndrome, we tested some different
essences. The group represented a big challenge, because people
with disabilities are usually playful while creating and have
more difficulties to concentrate. Scents that we smelled were
reminiscent of white chocolate, orange and vanilla. The effect
of the device was immediate and it was exceptional, they scent
reminded them of a holiday, thus they felt safe. This process is
associated with the responding of the left cerebral hemisphere,
which without side effects associates pleasant feelings and
provides a positive atmosphere.
The device is professionally called "Scent Generator" and is the
product of a Slovenian innovator. Natural essences, which are
bottled in the interior of the device, are sprayed into the air
and the effect is so good that we actually get the feeling that
we are in the middle of fruit plantation.
"When we used this innovative device, which produces special
essences, the children easily worked for more than 1 hour, which
is very rare", said Mrs. Tatjana Ferengja, supervisor of art
workshops in Society društvo Simbioza Kranj.
We also presented our products to the audience at Christmas
bazaars and exhibitions. The funds raised are used to purchase
art supplies. Art supplies for a weekend seminar in Topolšica
were purchased and donated to us by a private Slovenian
institute BHRI from Ljubljana, which also deals with the
promotion of children's developmental potential and overcoming
different disabilities. The Institute achieves its goals through
smelling of natural essences. Together with the Institute we
conduct researches, in which we explore, how to coordinate the
group with natural essences or to improve their concentration
and working capability.
In our Society there is also a folk dance group, which has 10
members, last year we organized the first folk festival for
people with problems in intellectual development. This year, due
to initiative of our members, people with intellectual
disabilities, we founded a choir
"From A to Z," which already joyful sings throughout our
beautiful Slovenia. Some of them are born singers, while others
simply sing with their bodies. These are our little suns, which
glow strongly and put a smile to our faces and link all the
hearts to an unforgettable melody.
The results have exceeded expectations
generator really works! The mood of people has improved, there
are fewer fights and the communication is significantly
our special social-security institution we offer home to
more than 70 residents with special needs. Since we wish
to facilitate and diversify their lives as much as
possible and improve the living, we constantly look for
new ways and methods.
Recently, in our institution is a great "hit" SCENT GENERATOR,
since its effect was detected by almost everybody. Not only do
our residents wonder what smells so good - previously we had
quite a few challenges regarding the odors - but we also
observed the following improvements:
affects extremely well the positive mood of employees,
• a much
friendlier communication among themselves and in relation to
residents was noticed.
increased overall motivation of residents (though it is very
difficult to animate and stimulate interest in them)
curiosity - interest in the novelty - which is a very positive
• improved the
overall well-being (this effect is still under research)
• We observed
that the generator has an unusual effect on people with special
needs, because their cognitive level functions on a more
elementary senses (smell, hearing and touch)
"In short, the device works even better than expected!
Our professional staff will continue to systematically explore
the potential of the generator on well-being of people, but
already the results so far have exceeded all expectations."
