Can A Scent Make You Feel Better?

3 Scents to Boost Your Mood. 
Here at Raw Sugar Living, we are known for our scents. In fact we work with some of the world’s most renowned fragrance houses to help develop scents that are uplifting, mood enhancing, energizing, calming, stress relieving and relaxing. Why? Because researchers have found that our sense of smell is closely linked to the brain region responsible for emotions and memories, known as the limbic system, which gives scent the remarkable ability to influence our well being and affect our stress levels, sleep, and overall mood. Ultimately, we want the scents you use to contribute to making you feel loved, cared for and uplifted. 
Scent is the most underrated of our senses — it has the power to attract, repel, conjure up memories, help you focus, make you feel better and put you in a better mood, so when you pop the top on a Body Wash in the store to smell it, or lathering on lotion, you’re not just choosing a scent, you’re actually choosing an emotional response and a mood. 
Here Are Three Scents To Boost Your Mood: 

When You Want to Feel Comforted, Calm + Captivating:
Vanilla is universally the most popular scent when it comes to positive associations. It’s the smell of home, but has also been used as a natural aphrodisiac for centuries. It’s one of the scents that men find most attractive in women, likely because it is both sweet and comforting. Vanilla is most often associated with feelings of relaxation, happiness and nostalgia. Scientific studies have found that the aroma of vanilla can help reduce feelings of anxiety, enhance feelings of intimacy and affection and promote a sense of relaxation and calmness. 
When You Want to Focus, Have Clarity + Relieve Stress:  
Another feeling to help bring on the good vibes is Rosemary. Rosemary is an herbaceous scent that has a refreshing and invigorating aroma and may have the power to relieve stress and help lower cortisol levels in the body.  Research suggests that the scent of rosemary can enhance cognitive performance, improve memory and increase alertness. It’s great for days when you wan to smash out your to-do lists or tackle a project where brain power is needed. 
When You Want to Feel Grounded, Enlightened and Relaxed. 
Sandalwood is known for its woody, earthy, warm and creamy aroma and has been recognized for its positive impact on mental well being. Ancient civilizations revered Sandalwood for its ability to evoke inner peace and spiritual enlightenment. Studies have shown it to have a grounding, calming effect on the mind and body making it popular for meditation and relaxation, evoking a sense of tranquility and alleviating stress. 
Using scent in your daily routine can have profound effects on your mood, focus and attitude.  That shampoo with subtle notes of rosemary can give you a boost of energy. The Vanilla Bean body wash can bring up good memories and make you feel instantly comforted. So next time you take a shower or wash your hair or put on lotion, take a deep breath and be well…
