Scents and Self-Love: How Aromas Can Inspire Positivity

Scents and Self-Love: How Aromas Can Inspire Positivity

The key to happiness could be right under your nose. Science has proven that certain scents and aromas can help create a more loving environment for you and your feelings about yourself.

The reason is that a person’s sense of smell, which is also known as the olfactory system, has a direct link to the limbic system. The limbic system is a primitive part of the brain that governs mood and memory processing.

Additional research finds that aromas can affect how calm and alert we are, sharpen our focus, cause us to be more generous, improve brain power, relieve anxiety and fatigue, and enhance physical health. The list just goes on!

While the chemistry of scent can be complicated, sniffing out its benefits is simple. And unlike a candle with its flames, where supervision is required, an aromastone is quickly becoming a popular and easier way to experience scents for a longer time.

What is an aromastone?

An aromastone is an unglazed ceramic stone that can absorb aromatics and emits fragrance without the use of flames or electricity for a week or two. It’s a lot easier to place your aromastone in any area of life because it doesn’t require you to be near a power outlet or to keep an eye on it. Hang it in your wardrobe, linen cupboards, or anywhere that needs a fragrance freshen up. And the best part? You can switch up the fragrances as you see fit or to reap the rewards that go beyond just smelling nice. Add two or three drops of essential oils or spray any type of fragrances from an atomiser unto the eco-friendly stone!
