T'internet is having a very... slow... day... here.
It delivers pictures one insolent hair's breadth line at a time
and disappears into a backroom when I click on a favourite blog.
Fortunately I have a secret weapon -
my newly purchased armoury of
Melvyn in our local health food shop could hardly believe his luck
when I came in with my list from Spirit of the Home.
I said I needed oils for
Calming and Reassurance:
geranium, jasmine, lavender, melissa, neroli, ylang ylang.
'Before you bite someone's head off because you are so irritable and angry'
bergamot, chamomile, grapefruit, lavender, mandarin, orange, rose.
rosemary, 'helps you pull yourself together',
pine 'helps you put on a brave face',
cedarwood, jasmine, juniper, rose, thyme.
chamomile, frankincense, juniper, linden, rose, sandalwood, vetiver.
'If you're feeling down and depressed or swamped by negativity'
bergamot,chamomile, hyssop, lavender, orange, yarrow.
Have you any idea what these cost?
Melvyn very cannily opened several of them then and there,
and wafted them under my nose to help me part with my cash.
