The power of scent to lift your mood this Blue Monday

For more than 15 years, the third Monday in January has been dubbed the most depressing day of the year.

A combination of the cold and dark winter weather, post-Christmas excitement and a range of other factors have earned this date the name Blue Monday.

Whether you are feeling the effects of the gloomiest day of the year or are simply looking to give yourself a much-needed lift, we think that scent is the perfect way to do that.

Seriously, we all have a favourite scent, right?

It is amazing how surrounding yourself with your favourite things and the stuff that makes you happy can lift your mood.

Whether it is that clean laundry smell or something sweeter like vanilla; smelling something, you like can have a great impact on your mental health.

It’s not just fiction, science backs it up too.

For years, scents like lavender and chamomile have been used as natural remedies for those having issues with sleep and Ylang-Ylang being shown to help with anxiety, stress and worry. 1, 2
