"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." (Psalms 150,6)
An ancient Jewish teaching singles out smell as the uniquely soulful sense. “What is something that the soul enjoys but not the body? It is the scent” (Talmud Berachot 43b). Perhaps its intangibility distinguishes scent from other pleasures.
And although the pleasure of smell is spiritual, the sages have recommended blessing it, because when one experiences joy or enjoyment, a blessing is recited. (Berachot 35a, 1a). These blessings help us pay attention and appreciate the little things in life- to notice all of G-d's creations, no matter how small it may seem. In addition, Moreover, according to Jewish tradition, a pleasant smell can awaken the soul and strengthen spirituality.
Instructions: Hold the product in your right hand, recite the blessing, and smell.
