The Power of Smelling Good

Posted By Raw Sugar on May 08, 2023

Have you ever wondered why you choose certain scents? Do you feel comforted by earthy tones, calm with floral notes, or invigorated by herbal scents like peppermint? Different scents can uplift, attract, inspire, and even elevate your mood while instilling the feeling calm. In fact, scent is the most powerful of the human senses as it has the power to evoke memories, influence emotion, lower stress and even impact your physical health. 
Smell is the only sense that is processed directly by the limbic system in our brain, which is responsible for emotions, memories and instincts. That's why a whiff of a certain aroma can instantly transport you back in time to a specific memory or moment in your life and change your mood.
One study showed Lavender increased the levels of alpha and theta brain waves. These waves are associated with relaxation, calmness, and a sense of well-being. Peppermint and Eucalyptus have been shown to relieve headaches and even improve respiratory function. Vanilla has been found to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation while citrus scents promote happiness and increased physical activity.
