post 3 smell

The claim that certain scents can make a person feel more relaxed or relieve stress is actually false. We associate good smelling objects with good memories sand bad scents with not so good thoughts which might make someone feel better or worse. There is not direct relation to a persons stress level and the scent in the air. People believe that smell is the most direct access to the brain when really it is no faster than any of sense in our body. In studies, different smells good or bad resulted in the same feeling for that person which says the actual smell itself does not play a role.
