Aromatherapy for your Memory

The ability of scents to help stimulate the mind can be found in folklore, in such expressions as “rosemary for remembrance” and “basil brings memory”.

When you consider the vast amount of data you absorb every day, it is easy to see why you might sometimes struggle to remember all the details. A memory might be evoked, however, when you catch a whiff of a familiar scent. This is because the part of the brain that process smell and memory are closely linked and by using aromas you can stimulate the hippocampus : linked to the storage of facts (Semantic memory) and events (episodic memory).

Vaporise a blend of oils in a burner while you are studying, to stimulate mental recall.
