Posted by Adam Kerrins on

When it comes to finding true relaxation, did you know that scents can have a big impact? With the expert team at The Scent Lab in Australia, we’ll take you through the ways that smell has been proven to have measurable psychological and physiological effects on stress levels and how products such as our soy scented candles can offer some of these scientifically proven benefits.

Scents and the Brain

Our limbic system, which is the part of the brain that regulates memory and emotion, receives messages from scents. Positive feelings that may be induced by particular scents have been shown to reduce stress and enhance general mental attitude, which means that beautiful scents can affect your mood for the better.

Memories and Feelings

Our sense of smell is closely related to our emotions and memory, which means that scents can have a powerful impact on how we feel. Have you ever smelled something and immediately been transported to a very particular time and place from your past? That’s because scents are the most evocative of stimuli for our senses. If you are looking to relieve stress and truly relax, then the best place you can start is with beautiful scents that take you to a tranquil place.
