Sight and touch are perhaps the most easily called upon (and sometimes deceiving) senses. Taste and pleasure go hand in hand, as our bodies have appetites…in many ways. Hearing words and sounds has a great impact on the depth of our feelings. But it is our sense of scent that if often under-appreciated and under-utilized. What we smell triggers extremely powerful messages to and from the brain. Some aromas bring to mind memories and feelings of another time and place. Others prompt the release of chemicals that bring emotions and desires to the surface. The smell of coffee, freshly cut grass, pumpkin pie, certain perfumes of people in our past…this sense is connected to the limbic region of our brain (the emotional
