These days every celebrity has their own fragrance line. I wonder if J Lo wears Love and Light or if Justin Bieber really is drawn to women who wear Someday? Even if Natalie Portman does wear Mademoiselle (my favorite perfume du jour) it can’t smell the same as it does on me. That scent just works with my chemistry, if you ask me. But these are mass-produced fragrances with varying levels of quality ingredients. Let’s break it down and think about the BRANDING of a person, or a place for that matter, as it relates to a scent.
One of my favorite classes while I was studying Aromatherapy was near the end of the course when each person identified an essential oil that they most thought represented me (and I in turn did this for everyone else in my class). After weeks of sharing stories, space, laughs, tears, knowledge, and wisdom, and of learning the essences of these incredible oils, we had all grown quite familiar.
As I think about my Feng Shui clients and the inner work they are doing to create the lives that they dream of, I can’t help but consider…what does that smell like? Each of the essential oils has properties and powers that can reflect that of someone’s spirit. Blend a few together and you could have a wonderful recipe for success!
Like art or food or nature–what you’re drawn to is what will serve you best. I would love to build a practice of Aromatherapy blending that is custom for each person on their individual journey. Adjusting the life-force energy in our homes, enhancing it with the life-force energy of essential oils, working with the life-force energy within our own bodies…I’m INSPIRED!
