Scents and Personal Well-Being
Scents can do amazing things for our personal health, both mentally and physically. They can help with stress relief or to help calm that pounding headache. There are certain scents that also known for making a positive impact. We have put together a list of fragrances that will immensely benefit your well-being.
Peppermint enhances cognitive memory and concentration
When waking up, you can clear that early morning mind fog by getting a deep whiff of peppermint. The Sense of Smell Institute conducted research and proved that the smell of peppermint helped to improve the participants’ scores on tasks that were related to visual-motor response speed, memory, and recognition. Before your next big meeting, dab your wrists with peppermint oil to help you stay sharp and impress your boss for that promotion you’ve wanted for so long. We can’t guarantee that it will work for you but it’s worth a try right?
Get energized with the scent of Citrus
Want a natural pick-me-up? The scents of lemon and orange can help alertness, which can increase the ability to focus, and will also aid in giving a energy boost.
Easing depression with Jasmine
