surprising aromatherapy benefits of holiday scents

Have you ever walked into someone’s kitchen and the smell of whatever’s baking sends your mind reeling? Certain scents have the ability to flood us with memories, taking us back to another time and place.

Baked goods often convey a feeling of comfort and safety. The warm scent of vanilla is known to bring about feelings of happiness and relaxation and lessen feelings of negativity. And when various baking aromas come together to spark a memory of a specific experience, like baking with grandparents or decorating for the holidays, that’s something truly special.

Peppermint not only sparks memories but can also help us remember. Its aroma can stimulate the area of the brain related to memory and mental clarity. With one whiff, the scent of peppermint can help you become more focused and alert and improve concentration. It’s also known to have a positive effect on mood. Additionally, when used in topical formulations like bath products and lotions, peppermint can also penetrate the skin and help relieve minor aches and pains.
