I’m gonna ask you a question and I would really appreciate your feedback and responses. It is going to help me out with a project I am working on with essential oils and the fact that our sense of smell and our memories run on the same circuit.
What smell or smells take you back to your childhood?
What do you smell when you think about your mom? Dad? Grandma? Grandpa?
Where does your mind take you when you smell that certain flower? Examples would be Roses, lilacs, apple blossoms, cherry blossoms, marigolds, and any other flowers.
What did your house smell like at Christmas? Thanksgiving?
Now I am going to name some smells. What comes to your mind when you think of the smell? It’s okay if you can’t think of anything particular. Just skip to the next one.
Tea Tree /Melaleuca
Jasmine (NOT the Disney Princess)
If there is a certain smell that takes you back to that special place in time that’s not listed, what is it? Share that memory if you don’t mind.
