You Smell So Good! This is what I whispered into hubbyís ear as I walked past him. Now, since my husband doesnít buy anything that he wears, I knew that it had to be something that Iíd played with and created for him.
At that moment, it was as though I could see the scent bellowing through the air and moving towards me. Straight out of one of the scenes of the movie Oceanís 13. I kid you not.
After I got my composure, I went into my analytical mind to figure out what Iíd done. The aroma was very familiar but I was having one of my s-l-o-w moments. Then it hit me, Amber. Iíd purchased some amber resin about six months ago and dropped a piece of it into some jojoba oil. Fortunately, I remembered to write down what Iíd added to the mixture.
It was a very simple blend because Iíd taped it onto the brown bottle that Iíd put it in. My favorite scents are Jasmine Sambac and Amber, but to this blend Iíd added some Rose oil, this was it. For me, Rose oil can sometimes be overwhelming but I added a few drops anyway. I sat this bottle of oil under my sink and forgot about it. Well Hubby was looking for cotton balls and found my forgotten brew. Iím known for putting brown bottles in dark places and returning to see what the content smells like in a few months. He decided to take a whiff, liked it and after his shower applied some right at the base of this throat. This is where I came in and was clearly put into a trance.
He didnít read my notes on the bottle, he just followed his nose and liked the smell. I clearly was not thinking of a man when I put this little combination together. My thinking was, Amber-Ok, umm how about a little Jasmine Sambac and a couple of drops of Rose Oil-Iíll let you marinate and see what you produce. It turns out that I got Heaven in a bottle for me and my honey.
Lesson learned; Donít be afraid to play in your oils. If you work with oils to create blends, youíll remember what itís like to relax and let go and this is typically when you come up with some of your best creations. If youíve never played with oils, take a trip to your local health food store or an aromatherapy class and begin to experience the beauty of essential oils.
Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
