Journal 52 week 8
Week-8-aromatherapy. Holy cow! we are just finishing week 8. My "go-to" aromatherapy is the scent of Lilacs. It is a scent that takes me back to my childhood and the neighbor's front yard, where two HUGE lilac bushed stood. When they were in full bloom I would stand into the bushes, as far as I could, and just take deep breaths.
Now, years and years later, I have candles that are lilac, one in the hall bathroom and one in the spare bedroom. The one in the bathroom makes the whole room smell good without lighting it. That room is on the west side of the house and the warmth of the afternoon sun makes the oils in the candle wake up. The one in the spare bedroom gets the same effect, since it is also on the west side of the house, but that candle I actually pick up and smell. It has a soothing and calming effect on me, and always makes me smile..........................now that's therapy.........aromatherapy!!!
So just how did I do my journal page? With Gelatos and baby wipes, using the wipes as a blending agent. The letters were done with Faber-Castell pens
What is your "aromatherapy"???
I'm off now to go give my candle a whiff..........................grin
