My top ten scents for when m feeling stressed and tired..and anxious.... like I want to stand on an overpass and throw bath bombs at passing cars.
Not that I will.. but it has a certain ...something about it that just seems so right.
My go to scents re as follows:
Lavender - Lavender is a soothing aroma that, not everyone likes, its difficult to dispute its relaxing qualities. When I get tense I find a nice lavender scented pillows help me to relax.... and a lavender scented me helps even more so.
Chamomile - A flavor I despise in tea, but a good chamomile infused soap or bath oil and its gentle sweet scent can hang out with me all day long.
Orange - Orange always makes me feel bright and cheery. Its grown on me over the years in ways I never suspected. Orange popsicles are now my favorite.. I have a hard time passing up the offer of an orange tic tac ( so much so thats what my girls gave me for mothers day.. I may have a problem) And for amusement, a best of craigs lsit post about orange popsicles.
Bergamot - Though admittedly, most usually in tea form. So I Guess its bergamot and black tea... but a nice cup of earl grey tea in an orange and jasmine scented bath... is such a nice way to pretend I’m the only one in the house for a short while. Now if only my ipod was waterproof. Blue Raven teas has one of my favorite earl grey teas ever.
Lemongrass - With a hint of green grass, maybe a titch of coconut.. this one soothes my tired self and perks me up a little to finish out my day.
Sandalwood: - Another scent that, for years, I thought I despised. How very wrong I was!!! Spicy and woodsy.... floral.. and sweet all at once. I close my eyes and imagine a windy summer evening ..somewhere with more sand than dirt...more trees than grass.
Jasmine - I use to dislike Jasmine. Greatly. But then I came across... Jasmine! and oh how my scent-sory world did a flip flop. A bit of this in the bath and I’m enjoying life once again.
Neroli - Also referred to as Orange Flower, though it smells nothing like an orange. I don’t know why it took me so many years to test this scent. I fell in love at my first bottle opening and rarely go a day without it somewhere around me. ( This is my most favorite soap scent ... at least until I find a new one) I don’t know if its so much a stress relief or a comfort to me when I feel out of place.

I had a dream in which I owned a butcher shop - which if you know me... ya.. not really my thing.
But as it turns out, to my relief, I only gutted fruits like strawberries and apples.
So wearing full butcher apron, wielding teensy tiny butcher knives and an adept knowledge of their "parts", I toiled my days away gutting and parting out fruit.
Did I mention this was also, or seemed to be, set in about the 1800s. I was scoffed at for having a mans job and my only paying customers were woman who showed ankle.
I didn't walk to work, or ride a horse ad or wagon.. but Flinstoned it in an apple shaped buggy with a gerbil cage where the glove box could have been. Being that it was a large town with a lot of trees, I spent far too much time dodging acorns, chestnuts and people dumping "liquids" from their open windows. And of course the way to work was played out like an old school side scrolling Nintendo game..
I so rocked the game...
Anyhow, About National Free shipping day.
Its coming this Friday!
with over 1200 businesses participating, there will be plenty to choose from! And with Guaranteed shipping by Christmas eve, its hard to say no.
