How Scents Help – The Wellbeing Edit

The sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses we have. There is a strong connection between aromas, memories and emotions as our olfactory senses are linked to the parts of the brain which control our memory and emotions.

Because of this link, what we smell has a huge psychological impact on us. According to Stephen Warrenburn of Oxford University, “an aroma can significantly promote stress reduction and improve mood”. This is because when you smell something nice, it stimulates your olfactory senses, which then sends a message to the brain to relax.

Our fragrances at Candalia are made with the finest ingredients to help enhance your well-being.

With each scent, we aim to add positivity into your homes, and here’s a few tips how:

Is there something keeping you up at night? Our Soie Lavande is the perfect scent to help you sleep:
