SMELL, MEMORY, MOOD, EMOTION
As babies we are programmed in our DNA to ‘see’ with our noses (whilst our eyes develop), and throughout our lives an incredible 75% of our emotions are generated by what we smell. Smells can make us feel good, uplift us, change our mood, take us into feeling, carry us back in time, soothe our souls. A billion-dollar perfume industry is built around this truth. Scientific evidence has suggested that memories triggered by odour are accompanied by greater activity in the limbic system than memories otherwise triggered by word or visual. The limbic system plays a major role in controlling mood, memory, behaviour and emotion. It is regarded as the oldest, most primitive part of the brain, known to be present within the brains of the very first mammals. The limbic system includes the amygdala, the subcortical brain structure linked to both fear and pleasure. The amygdala works in conjunction with the heart, creating a symbiotic emotional whole – both contain thousands of specialized neurons and whilst much about the relationship between the two is unknown, one thing we know - the ‘brain’ in your mind communicates with the ‘brain’ in your heart; each is dependent on the other. And it is this brain-heart connection which lies at the foundation of what it means to be human. Scents, smells, fragrances: all travel through and are intertwined with the amygdala - this primary emotional area of the brain which directly talks to the heart. Interestingly, none of the other senses - hearing, seeing, touching- journey through this same mind map. This may well be why smell, more than any other sense, is so potent when it comes to triggering a response. Our sensory perception is truly rooted in the rich and mysterious context of our internal landscape. In stands to reason, then, that smell can be one of the most powerful tools in existence when it comes to mindfulness.
