5 Home Remedies for Loss of Smell and Taste.

Smell and taste are often referred to as a pair because they are interlinked; most of what we consider our taste sensation is actually from our sense of smell. The sense of taste provides five basic taste differentiations, which are sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami (the taste of meaty/ savoury substances). Taste is detected by taste receptors found in our taste buds, which are found on the tongue and in our mouths. Information about what we taste is collected by these taste receptors, and is sent to the brain. However, most of the flavour of food is largely due to the smell of food. This is detected by smell receptors, which are found in the lining of the nose and the smell of food travels from the back of the mouth into the back of the nose.
