I LOVE Harry Potter. Ever summer I try to reread the whole series, it always reminds me of having to wait until the summer for the newest book to come out. Last summer was a slightly weird one for me, I didn’t end up re-reading the series, I ended up starting my re-read in the Fall, and have read a lot of books in between continuing with Harry’s adventures. It has taken me a while, but I am almost done the series, and it is summer again. I recently finished Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the 6th and 2nd last book of the series. For anyone who hasn’t read the book or seen the movie, look away SPOILERS may be happening.
This book always makes me rather sad, for the obvious reason of what happens at the top of the tallest Astronomy tower, but also because I know that the series is coming to an end. In a lot of ways this book signals an end to the series, Harry and his friends really grow up in this book, Voldemort is a viable threat to their families, friends, school, and their lives. There are a lot of emotions happening for me (and I would guess other fans and readers as well).
The blend that I decided to diffuse for this book (especially the last few chapters) is 5 drops of the Comforting Blend, and 3 drops of Bergamot. The Comforting Blend uses floral and tree essential oils to promote feelings of comfort.It soothes emotional pain after a stressful or traumatic event. Bergamot relieves feelings of despair, and invites individuals to see life with more optimism. They both smell really great together, Bergamot is a great citrus smell, while the Comforting Blend using really lovely florals and wood oils that pair really well the citrus scent.
