We are all spending more time at home during the pandemic. Most of us have found ourselves working from home or possibly out of work, home schooling children, learning new technology, cleaning our houses with antibacterial wipes and wondering what will happen next. All these new situations can lead to anxiety, stress and even depression. One way you can positively affect your mood is through the power of smells and scents.
Scents can have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self-confidence, and physical and cognitive performance. Fragrances inhaled go to the brain where the neurological effect can alter mood. They trigger areas in the brain that relate to emotions.
