Chillin' with toast

Just left an anxiety-producing meeting, full of reports of worrisome patient behavior, and stepped into the staff break room. Someone had been making toast in there, and the lingering aroma took my blood pressure down about 15 points. Wouldn't it be a good idea to waft the reassuring smell of toast onto the unit now and then, to calm everyone down? What others smells would work well for this? Please leave suggestions.

How about the smell of baking bread? On my way to work in Lewiston, I often drive by Contry Kitchen's facility, and the smell of baking bread on the way to work is comforting enough to make going to work not seem so bad.

Baked beans; tapioca pudding, butterscotch; lemon squares; and oatmeal. All quite calming.
