It is just by sprinkling intensely scented flavored crystals on their food. “We’re not sure of the precise mechanism,” says Alan Hirsch, MD, founder of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which conducted the study. “But clearly, satisfying your odor and taste receptors can play a key role in weight loss.”
2. Resist a snack attack:
A favorite fragrance can help manage cravings. Also, In one study, Hirsch gave overweight people banana, green apple, and peppermint to sniff when they felt a craving; they lost more weight than nonsniffers.

The smells of oranges and lavender make people less anxious, more positive, and calmer. When compared with others who were exposed to no fragrance at all. It shows that aromatherapy not only can give a calm and soothing effect but also relaxes your mind and increase concentration.

Looking for ways to use less pain medication, doctors at New York University Medical Center recently exposed patients with lavender oil masks who are undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. Those patients not only required substantially less morphine but also needed fewer analgesics after the operation. Similarly, Peppermint helps, too. After a review of several studies, a Wheeling Jesuit University researcher has discovered that it can ease headache pain, and German headache researchers report that the brisk smell is as effective as acetaminophen.
