a NEW thought Thursday


Happy Thursday!  Yes, I know all about scent being a powerful memory trigger. Smelling lilacs fills my memory of my backyard of the home where I grew up – that yard had a large hedge of lilac bushes. Oh, the scent of lilacs…fabulous!

Have a terrific Thursday! Do or learn something NEW!

a NEW tip….on-the-go aromatherapy


Hi all!  So it’s THAT time of year again!….the time when you can find cinnamon-scented pine cones in your grocery store 🙂  Yeah!  I LOVE the smell of cinnamon!  And I love having my car smell good.  I typically buy the tree-shaped air fresheners that last…oh what?…maybe 2 or 3 days?  But I recently bought these pine cones and left them in the back seat of my car…and ummmm! They still smell really good!  Try it out!

Did you know, cinnamon is used as a physical and emotional stimulant?  Researchers have found that it reduces drowsiness (that’s a good scent to leave in your car, right?)… irritability, and the pain and number of headaches. In one study, the aroma of cinnamon in the room helped participants to concentrate and perform better! (source)

Try a NEW scent in your car, or DO or LEARN something else NEW!  Have a great day!
