How to Boost Your Mood With Beautiful Scented Products 

Scented products like candles, perfume and body lotions can boost your mood.  This article will explain the connection between your sense of smell and your emotions.   You can boost your mood with scent using essential oils and other beautifully scented products. Keep reading to the end because there is an exciting special offer for you.  Note:  This post may contain affiliate links which mean I may receive a commission, at no extra cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link.  Please see my full disclosure.

How Our Sense of Smell Influences Our Emotions

We can improve our well-being using our five senses. Read more in this recent post.  The sense of smell is linked to the brain’s limbic system. It is responsible for our emotions, behaviours, sense of smell and long-term memory.  That is why smells bring back memories of happy events.  The smell of coconut body butter takes me instantly to holidays in the Pacific Islands where the scent of coconut oil and tropical flowers permeates the air.

Essential oils are used in Aromatherapy to stimulate the limbic system. That is how they can trigger memories and emotions.  The limbic system plays a role in several unconscious physiological functions like breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.  Hence the reason aromatherapy affects our bodies in such positive ways like reducing anxiety and stress, enhancing sleep and relieving headaches among many.

Boost your Mood with HideAWAY Products – They Smell Divine.

I have been accepted as an affiliate of HideAWAY, an Australian company. HideAWAY produces a signature range of whipped soaps, soap bars, buddy custards, scrubs and bath time treats.  These products come in the most divine fragrances like tropical punch, frangipani dream, vanilla caramel and pineapple coconut.  So you can create your own day spa at home using bundles containing a variety of their products like whipped soap, body custard and bath salt. 

Layering Scents for a Stronger Aroma

Using 2 or 3 products with the same fragrance layers the scent on your skin, which boosts how strong the scent is.  For example,  use the body wash, body mist and body custard from the same range and you will smell amazing.   Likewise, using the room spray, wax melts and scented candles will give your home a beautiful aroma.

    • Hi Adele, thanks so much! I’m stoked to be able to promote a brand that is locally made and one that I really believe in. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog post. Thanks for commenting, regards Christina


  1. Hi Christina well done with the affiliates and the products look lovely and probably smell delicious! Don’t forget that MLSTL is still going each Wednesday on the Women Living Well After 50 Facebook Group and you are welcome to leave your link there. I’m learning about essential oils and I do think that different perfumes and scents evoke memories especially from childhood


    • Hi Sue, thank you so much. It was a huge accomplishment for me and it took a long time to get to this stage (my website had to have so many things like legal pages etc.) I didn’t realise MLSTL was still going! I’ll definitely check it out. Regards, Christina


  2. Thanks for sharing this with me for #ShoutoutSaturday Christina, it makes complete sense to me. I have a love of citrus scents and they can pick me up when I’m feeling a bit low. I’m off to visit the site now and well done!


  3. It’s a funny thing for me with perfumes and scents. I cannot be in near someone who uses perfume which is overpowering and I found I could not walk into a lush store ever because of that. However, I enjoy gentle scents of coconut and have used some lavender to help me sleep.

    Thanks for linking up this week, next week, the optional prompt is 39/51 Healthy. 28.9.2020 Hope to see you there too. Denyse.


    • Hi Denyse, I find that some women’s fragrances affect me too. A waft of a strong perfume can set my asthma and hayfever off. I prefer more understated scents. Thank you for your comment, regards Christina
