Can't smell, but can aromatherapy still help?

I was born with no sense of smell. Thankfully I can still taste food/drinks :) It doesn't bother me I can't smell but I wonder, can essestial oils still help if you can't smell? Has it worked for any of you that can't smell/smell well? I did take a lavender salt bath recently, and it did seem relaxing, but I guess it can still work if I can't smell? I used chakra oils, I can't smell them but apparently they smell strong to others lol. I guess with chakra oils I probably should just use one chakra oil once a day, instead of using all seven one after another :P

What's weird, if something is REALLY strong like bathroom sprays, perfume, I can sometimes feel it in my nose (makes me gag).

There are qualities in essential oils and herbs which are absorbed by the skin.

Missed this one! Like Tobi has mentioned, a really good way is to rub oils into the soles of your feet ~ obviously, it's safer to use a carrier oil when doing this :)
