Smells like Nostalgia: Bath Bomb Scents to Match Your Mood

Smells like Nostalgia: Bath Bomb Scents to Match Your Mood - Tub Therapy

Evidence suggests that odors can evoke emotions and trigger emotional memories. Of all the senses, smell is known to evoke a rush of emotional memories. 

The journey begins as a scent enters the nose, traveling along the cranial nerve to reach the olfactory bulb—an integral component of the brain's limbic system, the seat of emotions. Here lies the key to the phenomenon: the olfactory bulb's direct connection to the amygdala, a vital hub for emotional memories and the body's "fight or flight" response.

This swift connection allows smells to bypass conscious thought and dive straight into the depths of our psyche, triggering a kaleidoscope of emotions and memories. A whiff of a familiar scent can transport us to moments long past, stirring up feelings of nostalgia, joy, or even sadness in an instant.

The power of fragrance is undeniable, particularly in relation to our personal wellness routine like bath time. Specific scents can evoke feelings of alertness and vitality, while others can promote a sense of serenity and balance. 

In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the best bath bomb scents to match your mood. We’ll cover everything from scents that smell like your favorite go-to dessert, to floral and fruity scents, and invigorating scents. So sit back, relax, and let’s dive in!
