How aromatherapy plays a role in enhancing your brain’s response to certain scents.
Have you ever wondered why certain smells evoke an emotional response in your body and why others remind you of your childhood? If you have a favorite scent, it’s likely because of the meaning you’ve given it. For example, vanilla may remind you of the freshly baked cookies your grandmother or mother used to make for you when you were little. The smell of cut grass may signify the start of spring, your favorite season.
The Emotional Connection Certain Scents Have on the Brain
When you start to understand how the brain processes smells, you’re better able to understand why certain ones help you feel better. Your brain begins to make the association between the aroma, how it makes you feel, and what it has done for you in the past. You’re then able to loosen up and focus on feeling better.
That’s why some scents are very effective. Lavender, for example, is naturally calming. It’s used in a variety of products that promote relaxation. Breathing in the scent of lavender can calm your nervous system and even help you fall asleep fast.
The same can be said about scents that aren’t pleasant to you. There is an emotional connection between you and the aroma. You’ve likely had a bad experience with the smell in question which is why you feel repulsed when you make contact with it.
