Wednesday, April 1, 2020


Smell has all the power to keep you relaxed and stress-free. The olfactory nerve is responsible for bringing us our sense of smell. It starts with our nose and enters into the skull to connect with our brain.

This olfactory nerve is responsible for sending signals to various parts of the brain. It also sends signals to the limbic system, which is responsible for emotion, mood, and memory. This system also takes care of our reactions to any actions. Like you drag your hand from a hot object, a school level example that we all have learned.


The limbic system sends signals to the brain to drag the hand, and the reaction is taken. Such a fight-or-flight response leads to a quickening of our heartbeats, thus increasing the blood pressure. The limbic system also soothes our nervous system, which relaxes our body.
