What do you love to smell?
Of all of our senses, smell is the most profound of them all.
A scent can instantly take us back to a moment in time with all of the feelings
and sensations of the experience. Scent can arouse hunger, sensuality, happiness, disdain . . .
I have a vision of planting a jasmine and lily garden around my house so that
when the wind blows my house will be engulfed in the scent of jasmine and lilies.
As a woman with earthy astrology, scent is that much more profound for me,
so the very first aspect of my morning ritual involves scent.
I even named one of my daughters after a flower I've been enchanted
by from the first moment I smelled it - Jasmine.
MY LUXURIOUS DAILY MORNING RITUAL
I have an oil diffuser scheduled to turn on in the morning just before I normally
awake to diffuse my fragrant, uplifting plant-based oil into the air where I sleep.
When I awake smelling such a delicious scent in my bedroom I feel
bliss and gratitude for the beauty of the moment.
Want to integrate this ritual into your daily routine?
1. CHOOSE how you want to feel.
Here are some ideas for you:
Citrus notes - uplifting
Floral notes- heart opening
Woodsy notes - rejuvenating
Resinous notes - sensual
2. PURCHASE essential oils above fragrance oils.
The difference is that the fragrance oils are synthetic and man-made chemicals
(which I don't want to breathe in.) Even when the essential oils are "pure" and "natural" the processes and quality of the essential plant-based oil is far-ranging. Because I'm breathing in the molecules I will most definitely be mindful of the fact that it's natural v. synthetic but this is where I feel it's ok to use a less expensive quality oil, as long as it is plant-based.
3. PURCHASE an oil diffuser. They come electric or the ceramic tea lite powered version.
PLAN to integrate this ritual into your morning and/or evening.
Over the years, I've created compositions depending on how I feel or desire to feel.
Need a morning diffuse kit, LET ME KNOW.
I'll put one together for you.
Thanks for reading.
