Smell and The Association Created
Studies has shown that smell does not really have a direct effect on us but we create an association with different types of smell. Most people have generally created a favorable/positive association with good smell or a negative association with odor.
Positive association is what helps us (adult and children) to learn better, remember things better and triggers specific memories that are associated with such smell.

Our Extraction from Smell & Children Learning Research Report
This is why we at Crystal Oyen School have made good smell in our classrooms as part of our learning environment and as a result introduced the use of air fresheners in our classrooms to help the children develop retentive memories with the classroom activities and become better adults tomorrow.
Does you child’s classroom have a good air freshener to help him learn better ?
