The importance of fragrance

Our sense of smell is probably the most underestimated sense and is frequently taken for granted. It's only when this sense is lost or reduced that we realise how much we rely upon it.

 

Fragrance connects us with our food, our homes, with nature, and the world that we live in by providing sensory stimulation that enhances our lives in many ways. The right scents can evoke pleasant feelings and promote overall improvement in psychological health & wellbeing.

 

Fragrance provides instant memory recall by pampering our mighty olfactory receptors. A long lost memory of childhood visits to the seaside or the smell of lavender on crisp bed linen helps us to relax and concentrate the mind.

 

All these factors make scented candles the perfect bedfellows for meditation, relaxation, yoga and creativity.
