The wonder of your sense of smell……….it is used thousands of times a day, we unconsciously smell all day long, but are you aware how effective this simple act can be when used to raise your spirits, to get you out of that big hole and magically give you a new breath of fresh air !!……………..
Our sense of smell has a wonderful memory, a smell, a fragrance can take you back to when you were five years old, when you visited your grandparents the smell of their home or linen on their beds will have you transported back to that wonderful moment,your school days, I always associate the smell of milk with my infant school days, left outside in the cold until break time,my grandmothers cologne which she always also placed in her linen chest,my fathers after shave,my childrens baby smell when ever you recollect these aromas that bring warm memories
you instantly feel a sense of love and happy memories, a walk in the autumn forest with the smell of damp leaves, pines,fern and moss,maybe you walked with your loved one or favourite pet, the memory will be full of meaning to you,everytime you use your sense of smell your memory will take you to that happy time,that happy place and you will feel that well being.
We burn scented candles and incense in our homes,we even perfume our cars,as we go through the seasons we choose different aromas the spring brings its special fragrances, the flowers start to bloom the grass takes on a new life and odor,the smell of freshly cut grass,the summer brings longer days,eating outdoors,what it is about dinner “aire fresco” the smell of the BBQ everything tastes better,we feel good and it shows, the autumn brings the first smell of logs and burning fires, our kitchen gets introduced into fresh soups and tasty meals to take the chill away,then we slowly go into winter and the wonderful time of christmas and the wonderful new aromas that accompanies this special time of year, the roasted chesnuts,the cinnamon in the apples and the roast in the oven, we all have memories of years gone by,and new memories that we gain everyday, so when you are feeling down or you just want to have a good start to your day, use your sense of smell and remember your good and precious memories,aromas are a fundamental part of our well being,so perfume yourself your home and general surroundings,and it is important to finish your day with that last little touch of one of your favourite smells……………………………………………….Have fun and enjoy
