The Power of Scent
From Wild Beauty:
People value fragrance oils for their long-lasting wear, and they can become a continuous cloak of confidence. I, on the other hand, am fond of the ephemerality and vulnerability of essential oil-based scents. Like the waning of the day, they fade and evolve over time. Instead of static scent, they transform and react. It is a matter of preference, but as people become more and more sensitive to synthetic chemicals, it is also a matter of clearing the air.
As we start to lose touch with the scents of the natural world, we lose touch with a primal part of ourselves. I believe we need to reclaim our noses and reconnect to the scents of the natural world. When we breathe, we smell. Inhaling is a part of our vitality and a vibrant practice for well-being.
