What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mood Boosting and Anti-DepressantsThe right fragrance can also create an uplifting and energizing feeling as an antidote to sadness or lethargy. It’s why a fragrant bouquet of flowers is a comfort to a friend recovering in the hospital, as well as being a cheerful addition to a room. Dr. Jeannette Haviland-Jones, professor emeritus of social psychology at Rutgers University, has studied the effect of flowers, and says there is an immediate positive effect on our emotional well-being with the ability to trigger satisfaction, happiness and connectedness with others. It also helps reduce the effects of depression and anxiety.
