Each essential oil has its own little (or big) personality, qualities and specific attributes that can impact us therapeutically on many levels, This is what makes them the amazing supportive, divine tools from Mother Earth that they are!
When you are consciously working with embracing a specific quality or energy in your life, essential oils are a wonderful support to reinforce this intention. The power of aroma and memory is indisputable and it’s a very effective way of programming your mind. You can use a specific essential oil or combination as a reminder of your intention.
The olfactory bulb in our brain is associated with smell and ties in with other areas where we store memories with emotional connections and also learning experiences that can be embedded over time. This can be why certain smells just make us feel happy – or we may feel averse to a certain smell that reminds us of something unpleasant. It’s so personal.
Smell is also strongly linked with attraction and apparently this is how we unconsciously determine if someone is a ‘mate’ for us, based on pheromones and whether or not we deem someone’s ‘aroma’ compatible. This is just a tiny insight into how powerful and impactful our sense of smell is in our lives.
Sweet Orange is a happy, joyful bottle of liquid sunshine for when we need a boost.
Cedarwood embodies courage, providing solidity in times of uncertainty and helps us to remain strong when we are wavering.
Would you like me to create something especially for you, a very magical, sacred experience that takes place over a number of days. That’s a Sacred Scent experience.
