Did you know that of all our five senses, smell is the one that’s most closely related to memory?
That’s why getting a whiff a certain cologne can instantly transport you back to a date with your high school sweetheart, or the aroma of freshly-baked cookies can make you think of spending the holidays with family and friends.
Scent also has a profound effect on our mood. It’s why I love using all things lavender when I want to destress and peppermint when I need something uplifting.
But come autumn, no matter how I’m feeling, I’m drawn to all things pumpkin, which may be why I have to restrain myself from using our Pumpkin Enzyme Peel more than the recommended once a week.
Simply opening the jar reminds me of crisp fall days eating delicious apple pie and chilly nights spent curled up by the fire with my husband, daughter and 14-year-old yellow lab in our country home. It brings me instant happiness.
The glowing skin it gives me certainly doesn’t hurt, either!
Here’s to making fragrant memories.
