The Smell of Virtue

Poopie diapers or citrus? Why yes, smell matters!

Still think environment doesn’t matter? Well it does. It’s science!

A recent study, “The Smell of Virtue,” published in Psychological Science, concluded that a clean, citrusy smell encouraged people to be more trustworthy, more inclined to volunteer, and more likely to donate money to a charitable cause. Seriously!

Go into your children’s areas, walk around your church, and give it a good sniff. Is there anything you could do to help the people you minister to be more trustworthy and charitable?
