Episode #20: Scent Journaling for Mental Wellbeing & Creativity

In this episode, I share how you can enhance your journaling experience through the use of scent.

I explain the mental health benefits of journaling and the various ways you can incorporate the scent of essential oils to help boost the flow of words to paper.

I'll take you through two distinct types of scent journaling that I've practiced over the years (and that I recommend to my students), each showcasing the role of scent in different ways.

I'll share what scents to choose and give a detailed explanation of how to do the exercises.

Whether for anxiety, stress, depression grief, or creativity, if you're looking to expand your journaling practice in new ways, or simply looking to try journaling for the first time, I'll show you how using your sense of smell, and scents, takes journaling to a whole new level.
