Summertime is here!

Summertime is here!

I am so excited that we are finally stepping out of the gloom of winter; summertime is here!

It strikes me that our smell senses get dulled in the winter, in our home we are enclosed, so all smells from our cleaning products to our hearty, strong flavoured stews are trapped in with us. We instinctively crave warm, bold fragrances to cut through the cold.

Our sense of smell is strongest in the summer and spring, say researchers, most likely because of the higher moisture content in the air. So now is the time to re-introduce the beautiful, floral, more delicate fragrances back in to your lives and start getting set for spring. Throw open your windows, and start to smell the roses…

Our sense of smell is also heightened after exercise, so maybe it is time for a walk or jog around the park and marvel at the beautiful world we live in. I challenge you to find something beautiful from nature which has emerged from its winter sleeping space, wherever you live!

Some beautiful floral essential oils to investigate this month are Lavender, Jasmine, Neroli, Chamomile, Geranium,  Ylang ylang and Rose.  Why not make a blend for your diffuser of Geranium, Rose and Chamomile, a truly beautiful and calming blend to open your senses ready for Summer.

Have fun and be JOYOUS this week.  Life is GOOD!
