A certain aroma may remind you of something or someone – you might have definitely experienced it. This is because smells have a direct link to your memory center. When you smell something, the odour heads straight to olfactory bulbs that are directly connected to the areas of the brain that process emotion and learning: hippocampus and amygdale. While the hippocampus is responsible for your memory, the amygdale is where your emotions are processed. Several studies have shown that scents affect things like memory, concentration, sustained attention, and cognitive function to improve productivity.

Here are the most powerful scents to boost your mood and performance in the workplace. Also Read – Healing herbs that help you deal with grief and sorrow
