I have a few. I love the smell of orange or bergamot. Fresh is lovely (especially the peel!) but a good quality essential oil helps me a lot too. I also love lavender.
vickie Thanks for sharing. I also like the smell of oranges. I have not tried bergamot. I have heard Lavender is good for dogs too. It helps them calm down.
Abhinav Bhardwaj Yes - the moistness is a big part of that enjoyment. There's something very grounding in the complex smell of a tree for me. How wonderful for you that you're so close to the pine trees. We have a good amount of trees around here but getting actually into the woods takes a small bit of driving.
vickie Yeah, I think the moistness is really important here. Also, the smell of rain. I am not a big fan of rain itself, but the smell of rain is very grounding. Yeah, I moved from Buffalo, NY where it's kinda hard to find trees, mostly in the winter (haha). But, Seattle is a beautiful city with forests, rivers, and trees. :)
Abhinav Bhardwaj Oh yes rain is another big one. Rain is a little more specific for me though. When it's raining in an area that's more urban, the humidity tends to hold on to the smell of pavement or car exhaust and almost broadcast them. And rain and Eucalyptus trees just are NOT a good match IMHO.
Elis The Eucalyptus tree just doesn't have the same smell. Hard to describe. And a wet Euc. tree smells a bit like wet dog before a bath! There is method in our madness for using the oil in the dog beds - it is said to repel fleas. Thankfully we've never had a flea problem but it feels like a proactive thing to do. We just put a couple drops in the dryer before drying the beds. You and your pups might like it!
I have been loving this essential oil I bought called Ylang Ylang (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cananga_odorata), it has a good balance of sweetness. I put some on when I need to calm down or before I go to sleep. I am also a fan of Orange! I am still new to essential oils, but I can't wait to explore more!
O-m-g, this is kinda what I have been looking for! I love coffee but yea it also makes me jittery and too much energy for me. I usually just wake myself up and that's my day. I have never thought of adding orange essential oil to my shower! Thanks so much for sharing will definitely try that!
Vanilla incense or a local incense called tranquility which I need specially now. Fighting double pneumonia and 2 at least lesions, which coincidentally are also symptoms of the beer virus. I call it that cause when I type coronavirus it tries to auto correct to corona and lime. But every couple days pain goes to stab like level when I cough. So if at some point I have to isolate, people in this building where my condo is can call or text me, and I can still be a helpful empath/Infj-a. Anyhoo I tend to threadjack my own replies. Those two incense smells calm me when I'm not having a good day upstairs (mentally)
I love citrus, mint and other herbs and moist smell. And also, this one may be a little strange - Six Gods flower dew, this is a kind of Chinese herbal perfume, usually used to repel mosquitoes.
I'm late to this thread, and this is a weird one but I am curious to see if anyone can relate..... The smell of books. Especially old books. It instantly transports me to a cozy old library I used to hang out in a lot as a child. Reading has always been a way I cope with feeling overwhelmed, probably escapism but it works.
