The Most comforting smell in the world

5 The most comforting smell in the world! | Latest Research !!!

The most comforting smell in the world is the one that brings you extreme peace and solace. After one hectic tiring day, all you wanna do is take a long hot bath with your favorite scented candle lit up and your favorite music. Well, that’s comforting to me. 

But the comforting smell must be different for you, your friend, your family, and a person sitting in a small town in the remotest area of Ireland for instance.

The most common answers that you’ll find on the internet include the aroma from the kitchen when your mum is cooking your favorite dish, the fragrance of the baby oil while you’re massaging your 1-year-old, the petrichor from the first rain of the monsoon season, the delicious and calming scent from that ‘champagne toast’ scented candle you just got on a sale from Bath & Body Works, or the smell of gasoline or shoe polish that gives you that euphoric momentary pleasure. 

Scientifically seen, the addiction to these comforting smells is because of the chemical composition of these products.

For e.g. the smell of petrol that gets you addicted to it is because of the presence of Benzene, a chemical compound, which has a sweet smell, bringing you back to smell more and more of it, while it numbs your nervous system and works as an anesthetic.

The most comforting smell in the world hence stays a very ambiguous topic. But the most comforting smell in the world is from essential oils and scented candles. They are so relaxing and unwinding, that they help you fall asleep.

According to scientists, 64 % of people around the world have had improved sleep quality just with the use of essential oils at night. Just putting 2-3 drops of your choicest essential oil on your pillowcase before going to bed can do wonders for you and your internal body.

So, what is the most comforting smell in the world? That will make you feel surreal and relaxed.

What kind of Aromatherapy will make you feel better? 

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefits. The olfactory nerves help transfer the smell to the olfactory cortex present in the cerebrum, at the base of the brain, on top of the two nasal cavities.

The work essential oils do is to numb the nerves and provide a sense of calmness and stillness after a long and tiring day.

How to use it? 

  • Either a Bath with a few drops of the Essential Oil,
  •  a message 
  • Or simply put a few drops on your pillowcase. 

So, what is the most comforting smell in the world packaged up as essential oils?

Lavender essential oil has been proven to work most of the time for most people to improve sleep quality. I personally am a witness to the miraculous effects of Lavender Essential Oil. I Had once been to a spice plantation in Goa, India and I bought a Lavender Essential oil. 

But I used it for the first time, just a few days ago when I couldn’t stop random thoughts from racing through my head. So, I just put a few drops of the oil on my pillow case and in the next few minutes, I was so relaxed and already feeling drowsy. I woke up so well-rested the next morning. 

Lavender essence is mainly accredited for providing a break to the thoughts running through your head endlessly. 


Vanilla essential oil is a very overrated yet underrated scent. It has that mild, sweet aroma, like that of a bakery. So it’s a value-for-money scent without the trouble of actually baking stuff. Most people consider it a very overpowering fragrance, but I personally find the sweetness to be just the right amount.

 It has ultimate calming properties too, although not perfect for falling asleep you can definitely use it while you finish up your pending work in your room, or read while listening to some lofi- music. Just add a few drops and turn on your diffuser. 

You can also use the oil by adding a few drops to your daily moisturizer or face cleanser. If you wanna smell just like your favorite bakery item, sprint and buy this off of amazon or your favorite shopping store.
