28 Days Connection First Journey
Day 16, Olfactory Awakening
Everyone remembers the scent in the air after a summer rain. And everyone can share their story about it.
I am always surprised which smells remind me of different situations and experiences.
On almost every one of our herbal hikes, from the nature school, we come by a small embankment where a lot of thyme grows. We named that place the "Scent Machine" , there we can easily recognize the different types of thyme by the sense of its smell. The participants and we kneel down and smell one pillow after another. Everyone calls louder than the other. “Ohhh, wow!”. “This is intense”. “This one has a lemon note!” “This one is really peppery”.
Everytime we pass through the “smell machine”, I am so surprised and deeply animated by it.
What is the first smell you can remember?
Whenever you are eating in the next few days, try to figure out all of the ingredients.
Funny exercise for at home:
Lay a scent path with scented oil through the house.
Walk through the room and smell what's in the air. Map your house by scent.
Hide something with a strong scent on it and have someone find it blindfold.
For your Sit Spot:
Investigate your sit spot with your nose, almost like a dog, like we did a few days ago by getting to know the place by touch, today check the same places with your sense of smell.
Share your experience with your partners and ask them about it.

Have a lovely day.
