Mmmm, The Power Of Scents

Ahhh, the power of scent.  Not much is said about how scent can be mood-elevating.  I am soooo susceptible to scent, though!  I often say that I am the Bad Smell Police.  I can’t stand bad smells!  If someone takes a dump in my vicinity they damn well better be spraying some anti-stink spray and turning on a fan, like, stat!  On the other side of that, though, I was lucky enough to be given a wax simmering pot last Christmas, and I LOVE this sucker!  It’s very safe, it’s warmed by a light bulb, so I don’t have to worry about burning the house down.  At Target (and every other home store you can find) they sell little packages of wax squares and my newest love is called “Be At Peace” (love the name) and it smells of Balsam Fir and Juniper and a little sprinkling of fairy dust.  It smells sooooooo damn good and makes me happily anticipate Christmas, but in addition to that, it just plain tickles me pink!  I walk down the stairs to my apartment, and I just breathe a deep breath of “Ahhhhhhhhh yesssssss Jugdish!.”  If you have never tried scents for mood elevation, I highly, highly recommend that you get your bunzitos to the store and start sniffing.  Who knows what they might evoke?  It could be good.  It could be VERY good.  Peaches!
