The Power Of Scent
Did you know that Scent is the first thing you notice when you walk into a room?
It changes your facial expressions in milliseconds as you register it.
Scent has to be one of the most powerful ways to make a positive first impression.
In the home, in the workplace, in your car… the power of Scent is one of the most important senses. It can change so much more than a facial expression – it can change your whole mood!
Smell can trigger long stored memories that you didn’t even know you had. It can remind you of amazing food or meals. It can evoke strong emotions from treasured times.
Did you know that smell is the only sense linked to the emotional part of your brain?
Have you ever noticed how mothers love the smell of their babies? How certain scents evoke memories of childhood? Or remind you of family members? Smell triggers the powerful emotional centre of our brains. Think about it… you will never stay somewhere you don’t like the smell of! You will leave!
Your sense of smell is powerful beyond measure and directly impacts your mood and actions.
Therefore smells that you love lift moods and make you feel better. They can reassure and make you feel safe.
Your favourite scents give you that feel good factor. Think about how your favourite food smells make you salivate and can even trigger hunger too. The scents in your life directly impact you!
Lavender is often suggested for restful sleep. Why? Because your sense of smell doesn’t stop when your sleeping. The calming scent of lavender can help you relax unwind and let go of stress while you sleep. Pine can be equally calming, evoking a sense of nature.
A baby starts developing a sense of smell in the womb. Even a newborn whose sight is not fully developed is comforted by their mothers smell moments after birth.
A sense of smell is truly an amazing gift and has the power to directly impact our mood and life. If you’re having a bad day you can take a few deep breaths, inhale your favourite scent and be put in a positive mindset.
It’s proven that a scent we love can lift our mood. The scents you choose can have a positive impact on your environment. With Scentsy, you can ensure that your home and workplace always has a positive scent that increases happiness and productivity.
