The Science Behind the Scent

Certain scents have been known to improve our mood. For years, aromatherapy uses essential oils to help enhance our overall wellbeing. Citrus scents, such as those containing grapefruit or lemon, are renowned for their mood-boosting benefits, helping us to feel more awake, alert and less stressed. So, how can we incorporate the uplifting properties of citrus into our homes?
