Aromas Can Help Us Relax.

People respond to the sense of smell on an emotional level more strongly than any other sense. A single aroma can trigger forgotten memories. Gardenias hold a special place in my heart. When I was a little girl I used to play under the tree in my grandma's front yard. There were Gardenia bushes and I just remember the glorious aroma from those sweet white flowers. Pleasant aromas trigger a variety of chemicals that relax, calm, stimulate and create a general feeling of well-being.
