5 Reasons why smell is so important!
No-one likes to smell bad or smell something/someone that isn’t nice.
Smell is one of our 5 senses (taste, touch, sound, sight, smell) and controls our sense of taste as well. Our 5 senses are the way in which we experience the world around us. If we were surrounded by bad smells or things that smelt negative, our mindset and experience of the world would also be bad or negative.
Smell influences emotions, directs our nerves, triggers memories and ultimately influences our behaviours as well as the perception that other people have of us.
Smell can inhibit or enhance a certain state of being – happy or sad, awake or asleep, sedation or stimulation, rest or action etc.
Smell has a direct effect on our overall physical, emotional and spiritual health & wellbeing. Synthetic man-made smells do not carry the health benefits that natural ingredients provide.
