∴ Hello, Kind Spirit ∴
Does the smell of new toys take you back to your childhood?
Or perhaps the smell of baby powder takes you back to when your children were just tiny babies?
What about the scent of pine? Does it remind you of wonderful (or perhaps horrible) Christmases and holidays?
I know that for me, the smell of the perfume Exclamation! takes me back to 1994, when my half-sister would spray on the perfume and sing along to Roxette’s “Crash Boom Bang!”
When it comes to holistic wellness, memory aromatherapy can add a wonderful layer of comfort, reminiscing, passion, or even focus to our lives.
Memory Aromatherapy came to me as I practiced mindfulness in the shower, inhaling the familiar aromas around me.
Memory aromatherapy is not to enhance memory, but rather to bring up past feelings that we want to relive, and to create new ones.
Memory aromatherapy has two parts. Part I is Bringing Up Memories, Part II is Creating Aroma Memories.
Why would we want to do this?
Well, because we all need a little pick-me-up every now and then.
Suppose you want to remember your dear grandmother, who has passed away. Perhaps a few quiet moments inhaling her perfume can allow you to feel her presence, and inspire the happy memories you both shared.
Or suppose you haven’t been feeling much like yourself lately. You’d like to remember a time when you were more bold, confident, and daring. Perhaps the smell of a certain lotion, hairspray, or roll-on glitter will remind you of who you used to be, and how you can honor who you are now.
Here is the really fun part.
This takes a little time and consistency, but after about two weeks, you will see results.
Do you have a certain candle, outfit, or perfume that “gets you in the mood”? That’s the basic idea with aroma memories, only it is not limited to sex and passion. You can create a mood of relaxation, concentration, high-energy, and more.
All you have to do is stick to one aroma per one activity~ it is very important that you keep the aroma exclusive to the one activity. This can be a perfume, lotion, body spray, candle, or essential oil.
Here are some ideas:
