Favourite books and favourite smells


One of my all time favourite books is Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy. I first read it over a long weekend at my childhood family cottage. I had seen the movie version and enjoyed it, having no idea that the book was SO much better. It is a book that I reread about once a year or so because I love going back to Knockglen and reading about the trails and tribulations that make up Benny’s life. Benny is such a great character, I wish that she learned to love herself, just as she is, far earlier in the book. Maybe she just needs this diffuser blend of grapefruit and spearmint? Grapefruit is an oil that promotes body acceptance and spearmint promotes confident speech, as well as it encourages individuals to take a public stand on behalf of their values and opinions.

Start off with 3 drops of each in your diffuser. If you don’t have a diffuser yet,  you can place the oil drops on a clean cloth and place it near a fan or your heating or cooling vent. You can also use cotton balls clipped to your vents with a clothes peg.

Am I the only one who will forever associate Alan Cumming with Creepy Sean Walsh? And thank goodness Colin Firth has his roles as Mr. Darcy and Mark Darcy, because Simon Westward is the worst (in both the book and film).

Happy diffusing and reading,
