A Collection of oils
Aromatherapy oils can assist us in staying happy every day.
Seriously, what makes us happy?
A little something such as a beautiful fragrance, a sweet memory, a smile, all of these can become an inspiration to create a happy feeling.
We need inspiration to turn our days into happy days.
On a winter day you can recall a visit to a field of roses.
You will never forget the smell of an ethereal perfume.
My favourite scent is rose, when I smell the scent of rose I like to call it rose field bathing.
For that you do not need to go to Bulgaria.
You can just spray some rose hydrosol, inhale and close your eyes and imagine.
You do not need to go to Siberia to enjoy a balsamic fresh air, just open a vial with the Siberian fir essential oil and bathe in the smell of crisp forest greenery.
