The Power of Scent!
There have been a lot of studies through the years on the power of scents and how they can affect our moods, work performance, and even our health! A recent article published in Scientific American looked at how odors particularly affects our mood and work performance- including other forms of learned behaviors and found that they do indeed have quite an affect on all of these :0 The article mentioned that people in one of the studies who were exposed to pleasant smells & scents while at their jobs for example, reported that they set higher goals and were also more likely to implement more effective work strategies as a result. The studies don't stop there either...there are quite a few out there from various reputable scientific and research sources that look at how the power of scent can play a vital role in our moods and more!

*scen-ties.com pricing [package of 5 hair ties!]
These fun take on an traditional hair product- the hair tie, makes them an affordable pick-me-up for any age! Scen-ties comes in a variety of great scents, including: cupcake, sour apple, cotton candy, strawberry, brownie sundae, watermelon, and bubblegum! Plus, the company recently came out with a cotton candy, strawberry, and cupcake head band versions of their original scented hair ties :0 I admit, I am partial to the strawberry hair ties- although the brownie sundae scent comes in a close 2nd ;) They smell absolutely wonderful and bring you back to the carefree time of your childhood! Makes a great, inexpensive yet thoughtful fun gift that anyone will love. Each package contains 5 scented hair ties [or 3 head bands for $12] and all the Scen-tie products contains scents that comply with the International Fragrance Association Standards. Plus, each scent lasts at least 8 months- although they can last up to a year :0 For added cuteness, each package contains 2-3 shades that go with each package's scent theme; for example: the watermelon package features lime green and bright red hair ties with a tiny cute matching scent-theme tag on each hair tie [a tiny slice of watermelon is featured on ea. tag!] I will admit...there's a slight drawback to these- they smell pretty good...beware....these are super addicting...!!!
