Of the five senses you were gifted with, olfaction or your sense of smell holds the power of conjuring up memory. A familiar fragrance can lead to recollections as far back as your childhood. For example, a hint of the blissful aroma of orange blossoms can take you back to the breezy desert during the Arizona spring and hunting scorpions with a black light.
Peppermint has one of those scents that often elicits a positive response. Peppermint has been used for centuries because of the incredible benefits it offers—ranging from supporting oral health and assisting with respiration, to helping maintain digestive ease. Peppermint is also said to support healthy blood circulation, which could help with occasional headaches and nausea. It even has an amazing ability to soothe burns. You may also pair the scent with fond holiday memories, like the smell of candy canes.
We would love to say that it is the magic of the herb that has such a calming effect. However, while the plant itself does possess its own form of wonder, it is the scent that is truly mystical.
