Tell us if the smell of rain on dry earth brings back memories of your youth. If so, you could agree that certain smells have the power to heal. Health Shots spoke with Vani Ahuja, Ayurveda and Wellness Expert, to learn more about how aromas and fragnances can reduce stress and anxiety.
Ahuja says, “Everyone has different ways to unwind after a challenging day. But whatever you choose to do, using some calming scents may help you calm down and relax.
