WHOA! What’s that smell? Where is it coming from?
Of all our senses, our ability to smell things and differentiate between what is pleasant
and what is not has proven to be an invaluable survival skill throughout our lives. Aside
from the obvious negative smells like chemicals and rotten food from which this sense
protects us, the brain’s ability to process whether a certain smell makes us feel good
or bad is fascinating. For now, let’s focus on the positive.
Have you noticed how a particular smell can immediately transport your mind from a
stressful state to a place of comfort or invoke a specific memory? For example, the
aroma akin to grandma’s apple pie. How about that fresh-cut Christmas tree smell as

surrounded by the beaches of Maui, every time that warm ocean breeze vibe floats into
your nose? And who doesn’t love the teasing smell of fresh hot chocolate? Good, bad
or indifferent, smells are a driving force in our mood changes and how we are made to
feel at any given time.
