Hence, this deep interconnection of our sense of smell to the outcome of pleasant or unpleasant feeling very much depends upon the nature of smell; good or bad, giving us happiness or making us angry. In the science of aromatherapy, therapists usually work under the impression of the consquence of an aroma. The herbs hence have their own particular smell; strong, soft, healing, giving joy, arousing happy hormones, etc. Rose for instance, is an aphrodisiac herb and smelling roses instantly gives a pleasant feeling as it arouses happy hormones and makes a person calm.
