I love essential oils. And I love to be encased in a wonderful aroma when I paint, it seems to center me. So I have 3 spray bottles, depending on my mood, that I use every time i paint. And my paintings and journals always smell like me!
Here's my secret!!!
I take a jug of distilled water, and fill my bottles, then I add about 10 drops to each bottle of each oil...anytime I need a little aroma therapy 'pick-me-up' I spray my room or artwork, or even self!
