Scent is a wonderful thing, it has the ability to make us feel energised and brighten our day. Scents are around us every day whether it’s your perfume, your shower gel, your car air freshener or the smell of the great outdoors. Scents can trigger and determine moods, feelings and overall wellbeing so it’s time you start surrounding yourself with the right fragrances. We’ve put together how scents affect your everyday life:
Lavender is the ultimate mood shaker, it can take you from agitated to relaxed in one smell. Lavender evokes feelings of calm and tranquillity, which can reduce your heart rate and lower blood pressure. So it’s an ideal scent if you struggle with sleeping or have difficulty relaxing, if you’ve had a stressful day light up the scented candles, sit back and relax.
Citrus scents awaken your senses and heighten your energy levels. If you’re not one of those people who have trouble sleeping and struggle to get out of bed in the morning spray a bit of citrus scented spray around your bedroom and bathroom to wake you up and uplift your senses so you can start your day the right way.
If you’re trying to curb a sweet tooth then never fear, often food cravings can be appeased simply by smell rather than taste. Scents like vanilla or caramel are perfect, these resemble the smells of some of our favourite foods bringing back happy, homely, childhood memories, so you can indulge without taking a single bite.
When you hear the word ‘rose’ or flower you automatically associate it with love and romance, and the scent can do just the same. Floral scents are intensely sweet which can provide a variety of benefits, from soothing headaches, easing tension and can even be an aphrodisiac.
Helps with exhaustion and fatigue can actually help calm the nerves and make you more alert and aware. Not only is this Southeast Asian spice a stimulant but it’s also an aphrodisiac.
