Summer is full of excitement and adventure, but it can be hard to enjoy when you’re sweating profusely in the blistering heat. Luckily, science provides us with a simple solution for staying cool: fragrances! By utilizing specific aromatic scents, you can create an oasis of relaxation while battling record-breaking temperatures. Make this summer one filled with comfort.
Temperature perception isn’t simply a matter of physical response; the way we emotionally experience hot or cold settings matters too. If people feel anxious or overwhelmed, it’s possible for them to perceive themselves as hotter even though temperatures tend to stay constant. But interestingly enough, certain scents have been identified as having the power to create coolness in people’s minds making warm weather easier to experience overall.
