White, White Everywhere

My son Everett has no sense of smell. His nose is decidedly off the job and has been for as long as I can remember. So I wondered: if he can't smell anything, would aromatherapy have any effect on him?

Apparently, it would.

A short internet search turned up some evidence that we have olfactory nerves in more places than our noses. CHECK THIS OUT.

Then THIS ARTICLE claims that peppermint oil may help those suffering from anosmia (loss of smell) and migraines. Guess I should be sniffing from my bottle of the stuff more often, see if it makes any difference.

A bouquet of flowers given to the family after Ivan's passing, one month ago today, still brightens our kitchen table. 

The snow has still not begun to melt but the sun is peeking out ... .


  1. Aromatherapy has never failed me....of course, Emily gave it up once she had kids, so I have to take Advil.

  2. I believe in aromatherapy. I have this Irish cologne I can't live without as it lightens my mood. Also incense
