LOVE-ly Smells from Essential Oils

Smells

Normally I wake up in the morning with fresh air blowing through my home.  The smells are fresh and nice.  I live in a home that feels like a tree house.  The view is trees, and trees, and trees.  You may know that in the midst of the pandemic, I moved from Omaha, Nebraska to sunny southern Florida!  It had been the plan that when we no longer were caretakers for children, grandchildren, and parents in Omaha, we’d head for Florida.  My mom and dad had moved here part time in the 70’s and full time in the 90’s.  My brother moved here, and it was just a matter of time for us.  It is like paradise here.  Every morning I wake up, I marvel at the beauty of the world.  I loved my life and my family in Omaha, but this is different.  The sun shines even when it doesn’t.  The grass is green, the trees are full, the water is wet, the animals are abundant, friends are everywhere, and you can look up and know that everything is good.

Back to this morning.  It was raining, and my husband got up and closed the house to keep the humidity out this morning.  I woke up and did my breathing exercises, and instead of breathing in fresh air, I breathed in DAWG.  We have Kora’s dog, Koca until she finishes college.  Dogs smell icky in a small space.  (We downsized from a 4000 sq. ft. house to our lovely 1500 sq. ft. condo.)  We keep her clean but she’s still a dog and smells like dawg.

 

Scents

We can’t have candles or perfumes because I would get migraines.  I’m very sensitive to chemicals and smoke. Before attending nutrition school,  I had never even heard of essential oils.  Many graduates swore by the oils, so I learned from them. 

Our team has extensive knowledge of oils now. We have an extensive supplemental module on essential oils to help our clients to help their clients navigate safety and purposeful use of the oils.  In the years since then, I’ve found many uses for the oils that I’ll share with you over time. 

One of my favorite uses is the scent.  I’m an aesthetics person; to me, smell falls into the category of enjoying one’s environment.

That knowledge saved the day for me today.  This is my favorite combination and it’s diffusing in my bedroom, bathroom, great room, office, and kitchen.  I combined cinnamon oil, wild orange oil, and clove oil, and it can rain all day long!  My house smells beautiful.
