Essential Awakenings®️Memories of Jasmine

Essential Awakenings®️Memories of Jasmine

                Do you have a scent memory you’d like to share? The Scent Guru Group’s mission is to enhance lives through the sense of smell:  For or Smell Training to help regain the sense of smell due to anosmia, memory recall for people living with dementia, or simply a fun multi-sensory family guessing game. I was fortunate to have spent the month of July in France where roses were in full bloom and the scent of jasmine filled the cool evening air.  Jasmine is known as one of the most sensuous smells on earth (there is consumer research on this) and so many popular perfumes on the shelves contain this luscious, rich, sweet essential oil that is often described as intense and hypnotic. It is for this fact, that I have included the smell of jasmine in the first edition of the Essential Awakenings® Smell and Memory Kit because it would most likely trigger memories of vacations in exotic places like the South Pacific, India, or Provence. Women have been purchasing perfumes containing jasmine for decades, but the history of the use of jasmine can be traced back to ancient Egyptian times and is considered the perfume of love. In aromatherapy, jasmine is considered to be soothing, so you might wonder how jasmine can be known as perfume for love and soothing at the same time. Perhaps it's because love IS soothing to the soul? Until the end of the month, The Scent Guru Group is offering 20% off of the First Edition of Essential Awakenings® Smell & Memory Kit.  Each order is also accompanied with an official Smell Training Guide if you join our email list.  To take advantage of this special offer, here is the link to our website: https://thescentgurugroup.com/discount/MEMORIES2022 Have a great rest of the month, and happy Labor Day!

Hello 2021: Smell Training, Homeschooling and Mindfulness

Hello 2021:  Smell Training, Homeschooling  and Mindfulness

Because of COVID-19, the world has learned more about the sense of smell and its importance to emotional wellbeing. As Dr. Rachel Herz states in The Scent Guru Group’s Smell Training Guide,  “most fundamentally, our sense of smell gives us a sense of our self, our feel of connectedness with others, and is a central component to the overall quality of our life.”

“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Happiness Is Helping Others

Happiness Is Helping Others

This is happiness:  "I lost my sense of smell and taste when I had COVID in March. Several months later, I was surprised to still not be able to smell and taste. The world seems a bit flat and uninteresting without those two senses. Luckily, I contacted Ruth and she sent me her wonderful smelling kit. The variety of scents and the easy use of the applicators motivated me to use the kit fairly regularly. A doctor explained it to me like this: When you injure your leg, you do physical therapy to regain your strength and agility. This is like physical therapy for your sense of smell. Both taste and smell have improved greatly with the use of the oils, but taste is definitely in the lead. I've still got a ways to go until I fully recover, but this lovely kit has speeded up the process for sure. Many thanks to Ruth and The Scent Guru Group!"
