Can such an intangible thing as the psyche be somehow connected with smells? Surprisingly, but yes, it can. Valentina Tonkovtseva, senior researcher at the Laboratory of Human Phytorehabilitation, explained to the participants of the private meeting of Business Community Business Community U how odors can affect human behavior and self-awareness.
Aromatherapy helps to keep calm in modern realities, when a person cannot keep up with the high speeds of a megapolis. And in order not just in words, but in fact to check what smells and how will affect our inner state, the members of the community will take part in an ambitious project - an experiment to investigate the influence of aromatic oils on the psychological background of a person.
The essence of the 14-day scientific study will be for participants to analyze their every condition under the influence of various scents. 20 minutes a day and lots of odors to track changes. The results will be used in the further inquiries of the subject and future scientific use. We will share what conclusions our participants will draw in two weeks and whether they will coincide with the hypotheses of the formulated experiment.
While you are waiting for the results, we suggest trying to experiment and check how susceptible you are to a particular smell and which scents and how are reflected on your emotional well-being. Thus it will be interesting to compare your results with the conclusions of our "experimentals" :)
