It is a known fact that fragrances have a huge influence on our nervous system and mood. According to Dr. G. Dodd, unfamiliar, unpleasant and aggressive fragrances are among the leading reasons of depressions (including winter depressions), irritability, anxiety, headaches and so on. That is why aromatherapy is a great tool which can help us create an amazing scented summer garden in a depressive pessimistic winter day. Fragrances of meadow grasses, wild flowers, fruit and berries can create a beautiful atmosphere and surrounding in your house, and you will forget about winter depressions or cold winter weather, and start feeling warm and positive.
