Fresh baked rolls, the summer rain, orange blossoms … scents are so profoundly powerful, they can carry us back decades in an instant, and fill us with warmth and peace. We humans (and other animals such as dogs-ehh) have an intimate relationship with our sense of smell. More than any other of our 5 senses, smell is a direct link to our minds, and play an enormous roll in how we process emotion and associative learning.
Lucky us…Molecules in the air stimulate the brain, which sorts smell into perception and affect our behavior, mood, and memory.
Aroma therapy is the practice of coming to know how to harness the power of fragrance to create experiences that bring balance and beauty into our minds.
