Sense of smell has great impact not only on our mood but emotions also.

Fragrance have physiological effect. It has effect on heart beat, blood pressure and muscle tension. It can uplift mood and can act as a good energy booster. Pleasant smell can evoke feeling of happiness, sensuality and relaxation. Different fragrances have different impact on mood.

I got Apple Cinnamon fragrance reed diffuser from Iris. The fruity smell makes me calm and happy and cinnamon makes me feel more energetic and relaxed as well. I simply put the fragrance oil in ceramic pot and then placed reed sticks in that. Fragrance starts emanate as soon as oil rises up in the reed sticks due to capillary action and soon gentle breeze wafted the smell of apple cinnamon throughout my room.
First I used only four reed sticks but for stronger effect I placed all the eight. When not in use, reed sticks can be put back in the pouch that is provided in the packet and keep ceramic pot closed with given cork.
As I write this post sitting in the same room where I placed this diffuser I now strongly believe that using a right fragrance can make your mundane tasks little more enjoyable. It’s fragrance is so gentle and soothing.
Let me know which fragrance is your favorite one and how does it effect your mood.
Stay tuned for a very easy DIY coming soon on blog……..!!
