A recent, on-going topic and cause of concerns being discussed since the onset of COVID-19 is the sense of Smell.
You may recall in August 2021, I covered this topic on my Wellness Connections podcast #11, with Frauke Galia, of Falk Aromatherapy.
In that podcast Frauke explained that there are various types of smell dysfunction. Here are two:
Anosmia, for example, became a keyword to describe when one is infected with COVID-19, and permanently or temporarily loses the sense of Smell. Anosmia = loss.
There’s also Parosmia, which is Smell dysfunction that distorts the smell of things. One example I read about is that sweet smells may instead smell rotten. Parosmia = distorts.
Our sense of Smell is being recognized in a new light. At my Website you can learn more about Smell dysfunction at the link below.
There is so much information available to help us get more acquainted with how to use our sense of Smell and why it is important.
