Oftentimes, a particular scent can sway an emotion drastically in either direction. Sweet smells coming from a bakery or restaurant can lead someone reminiscent into old memories of family cooking, and smells like fresh lilac or lavender might trigger a feeling of spring and growth.
Regardless, because the sense of smell is a sensory organ, we may experience different emotions with these smells. Through an old practice turned new trend, aromatherapy has been gaining popularity globally because of the health and psychological benefits of essential oils. Whether it be in natural cleaning products, a diffuser, or applied directly to the body, you have probably encountered these natural oils. Vick’s Vaporub and similar products are a great example of the different health properties of essential oils. Because Eucalyptus oil is a pungent, fresh aroma, and provides a moderate decongestant property without the utilization of medication, Vick’s Vaporub has become a prominent product in the fighting of the common cold.
Along with Eucalyptus, Oils made from orange peel and ginger provide an uplifting mood and promote focus in the home and workplace, Peppermint Oils help with digestion and stomach ache problems, and Lavender oils promote rest and relaxation. There is an essential oil for all common household needs, including cleaning and disinfectants, promoting different moods in the household, and helping with minor health ailments.
