Mission statement

In today's fast-paced world, maintaining inner peace and stress-free living is becoming increasingly challenging. A factor of this is inescapably our environment, significantly shaping our emotional responses. This project addresses how we can increase mental wellbeing and mood management through environmental factors, particularly scent.

Concept development

In the wake of Covid-19, with an increased focus on wellness and technology, Olfa was conceptualized. It integrates seamlessly with current tech ecosystems, allowing users to control their environmental scents, similar to how we interact with music.

Research indicates that smell profoundly affects productivity and peace of mind. For instance:
- Peppermint: Increased alertness by 25% (University of Cincinnati).
- Vanilla: Decreased anxiety levels by up to 65% (Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center).
- Lemon oil: Boosted performance among data entry operators by 54% (Initial UK).

- User Interface: The app assesses the user's emotional and mental state, syncing with their lifestyle to automate scent delivery. This includes integration with calendars and health data for tailored experiences.
