It All Makes Scents
The right aromas can have surprisingly powerful benefits when it comes to soothing the mind and body. Using scents to influence mood dates to ancient times when fragrant oils and joss sticks were used to create a relaxing, reverent atmosphere in places of ceremony. So why not use scents to boost your well-being as well?
The Power of a Scent
Just the hint of perfume can turn a drab day into a glorious one. Scent also creates an association with an event or a moment, and has the ability to encourage strong memory recall. Let these fragrances evoke new memories for you
