The sense of smell, connects us with past experiences and depending, on what smells we have associated with these experiences, as it evokes, different responses in our organism, for example, if we think about the smell of the earth after it rains, if we think about the prepared food by our grandmother, if we think of the smell of a newborn baby, and we can feel the sensations that it evokes in our body, and in our mind, are pleasurable sensations, of longing

but of longing pleasant, a touch of nostalgia

And these pleasant sensations, can help us to heal our body

However, if we think of odors, like maybe, the food we have in the fridge, that has been there for many days and is a little decomposed, or if we think about the smell we have associated to the hospital, because the response that it evokes in our body and in our mind is completely different
