Boost Your Mood With Spring’s Scents

Boost Your Mood With Spring’s Scents

Experience the season on a deeper level and raise your spirits with spring’s scents.

Enjoy the season by bringing springtime fragrances inside! It’s time to put away those heavy vanilla and gingerbread candles and boost your mood with seasonal favorites like nectar, refreshing rain and wildflower.

Scent can be a powerful tool in relieving stress, relaxation or a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up. A sniff of lemon or grapefruit can make you feel more alert, chamomile and lavender help with relaxation, and floral scents just make us feel happy.

Lotions and Body Products
Bath salts, body scrubs and lotions come in many different scents that can influence your mood. For spring, ditch the pumpkin body butter and try an energizing lemongrass scrub in the morning and an uplifting jasmine or calming lavender lotion.

Flowers provide an instant mood boost with both their beauty and scent. Keep a bud vase on your bedside table, on your desk at work or wherever you could use a mood boost.

Some exceptionally fragrant springtime blooms include: roses, freesia, hyacinth, white narcissus, sweet pea and lily.

Growing flowers at home is much less expensive than buying cut flowers, and you’re sure to have a nice supply whenever you want to add a few flowers to your home. Sweet pea flowers are easy to grow along a fence, and its seeds are found at most nurseries and garden supply stores.

Spring is all about freshness — the outside and your mood — so bring some of it inside with you and love the season.
