STEPHANIE'S SCENT STORY
If you know me, you know I am a lover of all scents. My home always smells great, my car always has a scented tree hanging from the mirror, and I hope that I always smell good. Certain scents will bring on nostalgic feels, inspiring me to tap into those emotions or memories here and there. There’s even one specific scent that brings me back to 3rd grade with my teacher, Mrs. Flanagan. I couldn’t tell you if the scent is a perfume, a shampoo, or what… I just know the random times I have gotten a whiff of it, I closed my eyes and found myself back at Chango Elementary School counting my pennies on my desk that I saved for a ‘Pennies for the Rainforest’ fundraising campaign.
With that being said, I find my personal candle, perfume, and overall scent collection to be pretty exquisite. At least, I am pleased with it! I love to come home to a clean bedroom, with my bed made, and my room smelling good. I love my home to smell good. I like to smell good. I don’t find my outfit to be complete until I have spritzed myself with perfume.
to celebrate my love for scents, I have gathered a collection of some of my favorite perfumes and candles/essential oils in hopes that you may find a new scent or be inspired to get your place smelling R I G H T.
One of my friends, miss kc orcutt (@kcya), has created her own candle company. i have been blessed to receive one of the samples and the aroma it brought to my room made my nose very happy. her intentions behind the brand, light in transit, align with a lot of my personal beliefs. i am excited to see what she has in store for us candle lovers.

OIL DIFFUSERS & ESSENTIAL OILS
I think it is essential to have an essential oil diffuser.
I got one for christmas two years ago from saje natural wellness. i have become so obsessed with this pretty little device. it is as simple as putting in a few drops of essential oil into the base, filling with water, and pressing the ‘on’ button. I use my gold aromagem every day, which is currently sold out. not to fret though, they have variety of diffusers with all types of design and something for everyone. i actually just shattered the top of mine and saje’s customer service is some of the best customer service i have ever recEIved. FOR THAT, THEY EARNED MY LOYALTY.
I AM A FAN OF MIXING OILS AND MAKING MY OWN LITTLE POTIONS AND SCENTS. SOME OF THE ESSENTIAL OILS YOU’LL FIND IN MY COLLECTION CURRENTLY:
ANY LAVENDER OR EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL (MIX THEM TOGETHER TO CREATE A RELAXING ATMOSPHERE).
SAJE ALSO HAS DIFFUSER BLEND KITS, WHICH ARE CURATED KITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS. THEY HAVE MANY TO CHOOSE FROM. SCROLL THROUGH OPTIONS HERE.
I AM CONTINUOUSLY ON A SEARCH FOR NEW SCENTS TO BRING INTO MY LIFE BUT EVERYTHING ABOVE HAS BROUGHT GOOD VIBES AND GOOD ENERGY INTO MY LIFE AND MY NOSE. ENJOY!
