Not everyone can smell their moods but some smells affect everyone. Anyone not smell the skunk run over on the road? Yeck, my mood went south. Put me in a yard or home full of citrus, roses, jasmine or honeysuckle and I feel relaxed, comforted and content. Sit me by rosemary or peppermint and you’ll have my undivided attention. A tea of spearmint sets me on a road to meditation and contemplation. Join us to smell, well whatever makes you feel good.
