CANDLE SCENTS TRIGGER MEMORIES
It can happen in a moment. You step into a room or out of your door and in an instant, you are transported to another place and time and without warning, you’re surrounded by memories. A scent has the ability to whisk you away and envelop you with images that you may not have thought of in years.
Science tells us that scent is our most powerful link to memory. According to Psychology Today, “The olfactory bulb has direct connections to two brain areas that are strongly implicated in emotion and memory: the amygdala and hippocampus. Interestingly, visual, auditory (sound), and tactile (touch) information do not pass through these brain areas. This may be why olfaction, more than any other sense, is so successful at triggering emotions and memories.”
As interesting as science can be, what matters more is that in no time flat, that beautiful Vintage Lilac scent just transported you back to Grandma’s garden 35 springs ago when she first showed you her potting secrets.
Or maybe for you, the crisp scent of Crab Apple Farm brought the memories of picking apples in your own back yard during the late lazy days of summer.
For me, Mistletoe Kisses takes me to my living room floor in the early 70s, where I lay under the Christmas tree trying to tighten bolts to help straighten it while Dad held it and my siblings shouted “left” or “right” until it was perfect.
