Home fragrancing

One of the easiest ways to create a new atmosphere in your house is to scent it. I often use incense and aromatherapy with essential oils to relax and to refresh the energy in my room. Incense is available in so many different shapes and scents that you just have to try to find what suits you.To me the scents of Auroshika and The Mother's Fragrances are very soft and friendly. Something to keep in mind when choosing your incense is to guard that they are made out of 100 % natural ingredients. Otherwise the healing and relaxing quality of incense are lost. Trays with different kinds of incense holders make a lovely still life. Apart from that, by putting them on a tray they are easy to move over to different rooms and corners. Because the incense holders can become very hot I use brass trays to protect my tables. When you like to add a scent to your home but don't like the vapour caused by burning incense, aromatherapy is ideal. A bowl filled with water and essential oil is placed above a light. Through the heat of the flame the water evaporates and your room gets filled with a lovely aroma. I love Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Orange in an essential oil mix. It makes me feel relaxed and safe :)So far this scented post for today. I hope you liked it and for suggestions about future topics feel free to contact me :))

Sas,
Another warm and fragrant post :). I enjoyed it. I would have to try aromatherapy...too sensitive to vapours :(.
Please post these photos on Flickr. I love the pic of the smouldering incense sticks and the aromatherapy burner.
Have a lovely day...
