Aromatherapy ...

Isn't this field of Lavendar breathtaking? Are there certain scents that make you feel at peace? Or ones that calm and soothe you? I have several scents that I use, either with candles, incense or essential oils, that totally relax me, releasing any tensions that I may have. Some of my favorites are lemon, grapefruit, nag champa, vanilla, apple, rosemary, lavendar, patchouli to name a few. As a writer, I'm wide awake like Little Miss Sunshine every morning between 4-5 A.M. (without the alarm, seven days a week ... I know, it's sick, isn't it?!). Anyway, my creativity peaks in the early morning hours and I have my morning rituals - 1) Take the dog out, 2) make myself a cup of tea, 3) turn on some quiet music, 4) light some nag champa incense, 5) W-R-I-T-E! Sometimes, I'll break off a sprig of lavendar or rosemary and place it on my desk while I am writing. I love the scent of vanilla in the bedroom - makes me feel cozy and snug, like I am home. What are YOUR favorite scents? If you've never tried aromatherapy, take time to see what aromas speak to you ... give it a try!
