A box of essential oils is tucked away in the cupboard, which is full of my collection of favorite oils. I was looking forward to burning peppermint oil in my infuser. I love peppermint. It is my happy oil, the one that gives me a boost of energy, and gets me focused.
It had been a tough day. I was suffering from the, ‘sads.’ I really needed peppermint, my happy oil to lift my spirits. However, when I went to use it the peppermint bottle was empty. This inspired my Artist’s Date, of going out in search of essential oils that would uplift my spirits.
This weeks Artist’s Date was in search for oils that uplift the spirit and get me back to my happy place. I headed down to the natural health store, in search of such oils. Smelling essential oils was my idea of fun. There were so many oils to choose from however I choose two, that I thought would lift my spirits. Firstly, my happy oil peppermint, and an unknown oil for me, grapefruit.
With my infuser out, candle lit, I tested out the unknown oil grapefruit. I infused its cheerful smell throughout my living room. Whilst I blended it with the relaxing sound of Daintree Dreamtime by Ken Davis in the background. By this time the ‘sads’ had left me, and I was feeling good about the day. My mood had certainly been lifted.
I am not sure if feeling good came from the adventure of my Artist’s Date to the health food store testing out essential oils, or from the the time I spent infusing the oil and listening to music. I have a feeling it was both, and I am very happy to have discovered a new essential oil grapefruit.
One of the things that gets in the way of me going on my Artist’s Date is coming up with ideas of what to do. Another is I get stuck doing the same things over and over again. I hope by sharing my Artist’s Date I can inspire you to come up with ideas for your own Artist’s Date. What was your artist’s date this week? Please share your thoughts in the comments. I am always curious about what other people do on their Artist’s Date and often find this inspirational for coming up with ideas for my own Artist’s Dates.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
