The effect of scent on our emotions is well understood, yet the real reasons a certain essence can lift your mood and improve well-being might not be quite as expected. Studies have shown that our response to certain aromas is through learned associative mechanisms—in other words, our brain creates a link between a fragrance and a particular emotion. This makes it possible to determine scents that not only boost mood, but that can have a powerful effect on our well being too.
Using items such as scent diffusers and scented candles, particularly those that use only the highest quality of aromatic and essential oils, it’s possible to not only infuse our surroundings with a fine bouquet, but to effectively uplift how happy we feel. Consequently, this also has the desired effect of increasing levels of well-being too.
