Of the five senses, the sense of smell is considered our highest sense for its curative possibilities through plant scent and as an instrument of discernment of ourselves, others, and of the spiritual. Our sense of smell can be a trigger in activating memories and subconscious trauma.

"When a baby comes you can smell two things: the smell of flesh, which smells like chicken soup, and the smell of lilies, the flower of another garden, the spiritual garden." ~ Carlos Santana
