Quote: Smell is a potent wizard...
Love this quote! Have you ever been somewhere and smelled something that triggered a memory? Grandma’s bread, middle school cafeteria, a flower from your bridal bouquet?
I have triplet daughters born at 27 ½ weeks who were in the NICU for months and months. We had to scrub in before we were allowed to see them. It’s been 15 years and every now and again, I’ll smell that same soap and instantly the feelings of being there are brought back.
Essential oils can work in the same way. We can use them to get access to parts of our brain that smell reaches best- emotions, memories, etc.
