Ahhh, The Holiday Season is here! One of the best ways to enhance this time of year is by using your nose. It knows so much and can support your body’s health & spirit to make the most out of the blessings of the season.
The reason why scent is so good at inducing changes in moods is because olfaction has a more direct and immediate connection to the area of the brain that processes emotion than any other sense does. It has a connection to memory as well. Utilizing scents that stir the spirit or calm the soul is a very personal matter. One person may love lavender because it reminds them of a lazy summer day. Other’s may not like it as it may remind them or a particularly unhappy time. Blending oils is as much an art as it is a science because of these factors.
If you are having challenges manifesting your desires for a warm and wonderful season. Consider using essential oils. There are many ways to do so. Try having an aromatic therapeutic massage. Diffuse oils into the air. Use an aromatherapy oil blend while showering. Use as potpourri (one of the best ways this holiday season!) Find a candle that resonates with you and burn it.
