Let’s Talk about Scents, Baby

Hi there Yinz,

Yinz = Y’all in Pittsburgh! I visited my cousin last weekend, and it was my first time visiting this lovely city.

Point State Park (locally known as The Point) is a Pennsylvania state park on 36 acres in Downtown Pittsburgh, at the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers’ confluence forming the Ohio River. ~Wikipedia

“Scents can have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self-confidence, and physical and cognitive performance,” says Theresa Molnar, executive director of the Sense of Smell Institute, the research and educational arm of the perfume industry’s Fragrance Foundation. Fragrances inhaled go to the brain, where the neurological effect can alter your mood. They trigger areas in the brain that relate to emotions.

When you select a candle or reed diffuser, the scent is a great way to improve your mood, reduce anxiety, help grief, combat fatigue, and release stress.
