Where do you go to get away from it all?
In the current climate, not very far! Many of us are working from home these days and it can be quite an adjustment. Working from home takes discipline! The desk in my home office faces a window overlooking a green area in my community. I thought having a window to the world would be invigorating, you know, sunlight, trees, blue skies… Not. Looking out of the window for eight hours each day makes me want to be outside all the more! Stir crazy for real!
Today, I decided to bring the forest indoors ( the bosses made sure the phone connections are tethered inside my home. Smart). I created an exotic woodland filled with Juniper, Frankincense and Eucalyptus. Aromatherapy can transport you to anywhere in the world. Fragrances carry memories. Grandmother’s Lavender hugs, Dad’s Bergamot aftershaves, and the summer floral from Mother’s garden: Essential oils influence the mood, calms tense spaces, bringing feelings of happiness and comfort into the air.
All we have to do is breathe.
