Experiencing different smells can be a wonderful way to inspire new ideas.
It's a simple process, when scents are inhaled they are processed through the olfactory system, which then sends the therapeutic benefits of the aroma to the brain.
Here are some common scents and how they can boost your mood and help aid in inspiration:
Peppermint: Energy boost.
Lemon: Revitalizing and uplifting.
Orange: Good for relaxation, and peace and happiness to the mind.
Grapefruit: Refreshing and uplifting.
Lavender: Good for quieting the mind before bed.
Basil: Memory and concentration
The scent of lemon always makes me smile and gives my brain the boost I need when I am uninspired. When I smell lemons I can't help but close my eyes and inhale deeply, I love anything lemon scented.
