How Can Certain Air Freshener Scents Brighten Your Mood?

When it comes to air fresheners, we tend to focus mostly on finding the strongest and most projective scent possible to ensure that our room smells like the product as much as possible.  Still, it is important to choose an air freshener based on its aroma profile.  Why?  Well, to simply ensure that it has the ability to impact your mood.  Aromatherapy has been a recognized science for hundreds if not thousands of years, and at Rasta Incense, we aim not only to effectively make your home smell fresh, but to absolutely improve your mood with our rich variety of aroma profiles. 

What are the Main Categories of Mood-Related Scents?

As you may know, each category of scents can benefit our mood in its own unique way, so it comes down to choosing what you like based on personal preferences.

Uplifting Citrus

Citrus fruits like orange, lemon, lime, orange, and bergamot are proven to improve mood by uplifting the spirits.  But, more scientifically, they contain terpenes that are known for providing a boost in mood that can be quite noticeable.  Citrus-dominant fragrances are bright and cheery, thus influencing the atmosphere around us to feel more positive.

Transporting Tropicals

Tropical fruits like pineapple, coconut, mango, and papaya aren’t just a pleasure for the senses.  These scents can inspire us in a way that makes us feel like we’ve been transported to paradise.  They allow for positive associations with our most cherished vacation memories and make us feel as though we are on an exotic beach even when stuck at home on a rainy day.  These scents are sweet, bright, and absolutely intoxicating.

Garden-Fresh Florals

Florals are extremely popular, including orchid, lilac, lavender, and lily of the valley.  These scents lift our mood by making us feel like we are walking through a beautiful garden, especially when these scents are paired with herbs that add greenery to the scent experience.  Florals can be great for those who struggle during the darker months of the year, longing for spring to arrive, by creating an internal environment that feels like the springtime is here.

Decadent Vanilla

Anyone who has a sweet tooth knows that vanilla is one of the most intoxicating scents around.  A vanilla-dominant fragrance can improve your mood immensely by satisfying you with its sweet and creamy scent that makes you feel like you’re treating yourself to a decadent dessert.  Vanilla has a richness to it that makes it smell expensive, and this can also do wonders if you are feeling grumpy or genuinely low. 

Dark and Mysterious Woods

Woodsy aromas like balsam, cedar, sandalwood, and the like are dark and mysterious, and have been long used throughout history in sacred rituals of all kinds.  Many people feel a spiritual connection to this category of fragrance and find that they enhance meditation by offering a sense of calm along with intrigue.  If you like dark and mysterious woodsy fragrances, then look for ones that have a strong woodsy base which lasts and lasts.

Seductive Jasmine and Rose

Jasmine and rose are two fragrances associated with seductiveness, and can even elevate your mood when you are feeling a lack of confidence.  They instantly make us feel more sensual and alluring, which can in turn change the way in which we feel about ourselves. 

Choosing an Air Freshener Fragrance to Lift Your Mood

At Rasta Incense, you can find all of these scent families within our huge variety of air freshener fragrances.  Each of these scents are naturally derived to boast maximum aroma therapeutic value, all while being blended to perfection to offer the right strength and projection along with complexity that is simply intoxicating.
