Studies have shown that inhaling scent has an immediate effect on brain activity. That's because scents breach the blood-brain barrier (a protective membrane), giving access to centers of the brain that other medicines cannot reach. For example, scent reaches the limbic system, the brain's emotional center that controls our emotions, hunger, hormones, and impulses like fight or flight.
