No I am not delusional. I am aware that it is still very much winter in Baltimore. However the sun is shining and I smell like a sweet grapefruit. I can’t help but think of summer. A staple in my morning ritual is body butter from The Body Shop.
Usually during the winter months I keep my body butter scents pretty neutral. I go with shea, cocoa, or brazil nut. This week I decided to dress my body for the season I love. I’ve been alternating lemon and grapefruit. I smell like a citrus salad and I love it! I am walking aroma therapy.
As it turns out scent is a less expensive cure for the winter blues. It’s contagious too. I have the people around me smiling too. I know it’s the sweet citrus brightening every one’s day. Did you know citrus scents are said to reduce stress? The next time you are feeling less than your best take a break from retail therapy. Try aroma therapy instead.
