Abstract

This paper describes that an inhalation of a personally localized scent of essential oils in a half minute affects psychophysiological behaviors. A personal scent of a lemongrass, even in the second time scale, significantly accelerates some subjects to respond to a task test when compared to that of a lavender. Personal and instantaneous scenting can be a tool for affecting psychophysiological status, or mood by choosing different kinds of scents.
