Did you know that, out of our five senses, smell is considered one of the most powerful? This is because the sense of smell has an intimate connection with memory. Think back to some of the happiest moments in your life. Can you remember the smells around you? The familiar scent of a loved one, the decadent aroma of a home cooked meal, the first whiff of the ocean at sunrise.
Our sense of smell can positively (and negatively) affect our mood and emotions. From enhancing relaxation and reducing stress to relieving pain and improving alertness, this is why at Sensual Candle Co. we believe it is essential to have your safe place smelling good.
