Scents as Part of our Memory and Experience

Scents for De-stressing
There are scents that distract and scents that attract. Whatever scents that you fancy, it all comes down to your olfactory makeup. As a famous adage goes "the knows knows" - scientific research has already supported the inkling that our sense of smell maintains a robust association with our experiences and memories. This is also the reason why essential oils created from plants guide individuals to lessen the pace of our systems that lead to relaxation from strain.

Relaxation can be further enhanced by the sensory experiences of aromatherapy, if it is combined with massage or warm water. Fragrance from Scentsy scented candles can do this trick as they are assumed to boost a person’s mental perspective and impression of well-being by means of influencing our other body systems through the olfactory nerve, or the sense of smell.

Given the importance of scents in boosting our memory and lightening up our mood, scented candles do not merely make good gifts but they should be used for its purpose. For example, after a stressful day, you can light one up while washing up in the bathtub. It always is refreshing to get a whiff of peppermint while you seek to de-stress while bathing in warm water. Surely, the nose knows the smell that could heal your stress away.
