What are aromatics?
a substance or plant emitting a pleasant & distinctive smell.

Scent & the Brain:
Smell is the most sensitive of the senses. As infants, smell is the first sense to develop. Our noses have as many as six million odor detecting cells.
Smells are handled by the olfactory bulb, the structure in the front of the brain that sends information to the other areas of the body's central command for further processing. Odors take a direct route to the limbic system, including the amygdala & the hippocampus, the regions related to emotion & memory
Scientists believe that our sense of smell triggers memory more than other senses because those senses do not pass through these areas of the brain. Memories that are triggered by our olfactory senses can be accompanied by clear images & feelings of happiness, excitement, agony, & despair.
