stop and smell the flowers.

Feeling stressed?

Yes? Then try savoring the scent of lemon, mango, lavender, or other fragrant plants. Scientists in Japan are reporting the first scientific evidence that inhaling certain fragrances alter gene activity and blood chemistry in ways that can reduce stress levels.
This study appears in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Smell is definitely one of my favorite senses! What's yours?
