Smell Theraphy

How to perform an action through smell. It began as an investigation into odor. The combination of smell and an act made me dig into a technique where smell can be divided into degrees of strong and weak scent. For this technique I used 24 pots. Every pot has a different amount of a particular substance. This is a new form of therapy fragrance. Through constant exposure to different amounts of scent you will become more relaxed over time and it helps to boost your immune system.

This therapy consists out of a body piece that contains 48 different tubes that are connected with the 24 pots. It also contains a nose cap and mouth piece which makes it possible to inhale and exhale the different amounts of scent.

It works in steps. Every hour you need to take 1 tube starting from the right side and put it in your mouth piece. Then by exhaling into the mouth piece, air travels to the matching pot. In this particulate pot the air circulates and goes through the second tube that is connected to this pot right to your nose cap. Here you inhale the fragrance through your nose that came forward out of a substance of Citron Verbena that is found in that particular pot. After one hour you continue to the second tube and so on. It starts with a little fragrance and by going further the scent gets more intense.

The whole therapy is put in a wearable body piece which makes it possible for the user to do it at home and not necessary at a therapy session.
