Q: What are the most comforting scents that you enjoyed when you were a child?
CM: Honeysuckle, ocean air, freshly mowed grass.
Q: Since then, what are the new pleasing aromas you have discovered?
CM: Lavender. A bergamot blend with amber. Freshly baked bread.
Q: When do you regularly use essential oils?
CM: I use lavender most days in a humidifier to help set the stage of my home as a calming space for myself and my dogs. I use different essential oils if I'm having a headache or sinus issues (as a roller) and a different blend when I'm spending dedicated time creating content for my business.
Q: Can you describe the feeling you experience when you use essential oils?
CM: I feel more grounded and connected to the Universe and myself.
Q: What is your favorite natural scent and why?
CM: Fresh ocean air. It's comforting as the ocean is a safe space for me, has strong childhood/familial ties, and brings in the taste of freedom and never-ending expansion and potential.
