Sure, adding plants and natural lighting to your space can stimulate the senses and foster our innate need to be in nature. But imagine for a moment that you are walking through a field of wildflowers. You may extend your arms to brush the tops of the plants, close your eyes to strengthen your other senses, and maybe even take a deep, cleansing breath. When you take that breath, there is a certain element that elevates the experience even further. The scent of those wildflowers that fills your nose is an integral sensory cue. A similar phenomenon can easily be brought to your space by infusing it with natural scents.
