Oral storytelling has been an essential part of cultural traditions and communication since the beginning of mankind, and every human being has their own special scent memories associated with their life's history.  When I started developing Essential Awakenings™ smell prompts, I thought about our American traditions and lifestyles in order to focus on which aromas might resonate with as many people as possible, eventually leading to the selection that I have made for the both editions of Essential Awakenings™.   The smell prompts and their accompanying clue cards have proven to be a useful tool for family members, Recreational and Activities Directors at Assisted Living Communities in bringing their loved ones and residents together in a fun, stimulating and social activity focused on the recall memories, leading to conversation and storytelling.
