I do love my lavender and citrus aromatheray beauty products, but, home-made chocolate chip cookies will win everytime hehehe Xoxoxo

A Vintage Chic said...

I couldn't agree more, Koralee! I've got some homemade whole wheat bread baking in the oven right now...I feel wonderful!

Hope you're having just as lovely an evening with your sweet family, dear friend...

I love the smell of anything baking or burning that includes the scent of cinnamon. :) Have a great Spring Break. We have 6 more school days and then our holiday begins. Happy day! Tammy

Alessandra said...

Yep, need to take good care... of husband now!

Rose said...

My favourite smell is lavender too! Youve reminded me of my oil burner and I think I will put it on tonight.
I love the photo of the forget-me-nots on the right sidebar :)

Have a delicious day!

Lilybets said...

I'm crazy for natural products...usually I make myself so scented of vanilla,jasmine and oriental spices that my boyfriend sniff the air to find me..I'm a passion for aromatheray !!!!.

Amanda said...

Oh I'd have to agree with the baking quote - there is nothing quite like it. And I do love the aroma of freshly ground coffee too. Mmmm xx

Blondie's Journal said...

Lavender is heavenly... but baking cookies are better!

XO,

Life love, clutter and other beautiful things. said...

Ha!!! This is funny!!

I love beautiful scented things too. Be it candles or cooking food etc xox

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Teeeeeheeeee! SAME HERE ! My husband complains about the intense aroma of the lavender hand cream that I love...so enough of that! I can't use it anymore! But I agree with the second quote. FOOD is about the best aroma around! HOW ARE YOU SWEET ONE? I do hope your vacation is relaxing.......enjoy. Anita

greenrabbitdesigns said...

I'm definitely with the food cooking aromatherapy!!! :)

Maria said...

Good Morning, Koralee!
I do agree with you about aromatherapy... fresh flowers, melted chocolate, cinnamon ~ spaghetti sauce... there are natural aromas that top the "plug-in" scents.
There's nothing like lavender or rosemary from the garden ... or freshly grated lemon rind...

I hope you have a wonderful day today! Enjoy all the benefits of this personal time ~ it's a gift to yourself and family ♥
xoxo * xoxo

Pauline said...

Funny post ;o)

Jane said...

It made me laugh too, I love the smell of baking especially gingerbread :)
So glad your new bag arrived safely and that you love it :) :)
Hope you're having a lovely spring break x x x x x x x x x

curlysusieQ said...

I have to agree I would much rather smell something good baking in the house any day of the week. Have a wonderful, fun filled week, girlfriend:) xxx susan

Martina said...

Ha, so right, no arome is better than that of freshly baked things! Although i do love many things that smell good - but not too much ;)

Natasha said...

Freshly baked bread and the smell of fresh lemons is my aromatherapy :) But chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven does it for me too ;)
Happy week my friend!
Natasha xo

Catherine said...

I have chemical allergies ~ not fun! So the smell of freshly baked cookies is all the aromatherapy I need! :)
xo Catherine

Claudia said...

My husband would say the same thing! Though I love lavender!

Have a great day.

Shelley in SC said...

I agree. There's not an aroma that can compete with cookies baking!

Sewn With Grace said...

Thank you for making me laugh! I love lavender too! Have a wonderful day today!

RS said...

Hello, I got your link off a friend's blog. I don't regret clicking on it one bit.

This post made me laugh! It's so cute and quirky. I love aromatherapy, it lifts my spirits up when I'm stressed. The scent of home is aromatherapy for someone like me who's studying abroad. =)

Have a good day!

Very cute quote. I'm so sensitive to smell, I can totally relate!

Hope you are well, Koralee!
xo, Vanessa Elizabeth

Heidi said...

Yes I agree with a good cup of coffee to go with it or wine!

Mama Holli said...

AGREED! Chicken soup is a simmering as we speak or write or something like that! MMM MMMM GOOD!

Randi Troxell said...

choc chip cookies... oh yes i do like!
AND... blueberry muffins right out of the oven.. the BEST ever!!

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

I agree with you, Koralee.
All though I sprinkle every morning a drop of lavender oil behind the ears of my children, that should be effective against head lice. So far it seems to work.
Enjoy your two weeks off of work, sweet friend. I hope Mrs, sun will appear every day!
Huge hugs back at you xoxoXOXOXOxoxo

The Garden Bell said...

I would have a million dollars on all the bets I've made with myself that the minute Scott walks in the door he will head right for the candle and blow it out. Nothing better than the cookies hot out of the over.... well, other than the turkey roast and cranberries here in my house today. Nothing like a little Thanksgiving in March. Trying to parse down the freezer, but this is going to be pretty good on a cold rain day here in my garden.

Toodles,
you know who

francis said...

I am definitely into your aroma therapy .
For sure ! those are the best .
When I pass my grapehyacinths however ....smell good too !
Real flowers are also good ! Again a day of sunshine overhere and the gardendoor open all day ! I love that ....lots of spring-fresh-air in the house .
Enjoy your springbreak sweet friend .

Pinecone said...

I have a really strong sense of smell...I always notice when something smells bad!
Love the smell of something baking! You can't beat flowers and fresh air.

Kris said...

I love lavender as well!!

Rizzi said...

I LOVE LAVENDER TOO....BUT...
I'LL TAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES HOT OUT OF THE OVEN ANY DAY........HAVE A GREAT DAY AND ENJOY YOUR SPRING BREAK.......RIZZI

Helen Philipps said...

This made me smile! I used to have aromatherapy for an achy shoulder and it worked so well and was so relaxing..but the aroma of baking is the best of all! Have a lovely week.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

This made me laugh. I'm not good with smells...well, maybe I'm too good with smells. My husband and I were talking last night about the fact that I could probably be one of those truffle smelling pigs...my nose works very well. Therefore, I can't stand many scents...perfumey things, fake floral (rose-ugh). I do love the smell of fresh flowers, but other than that...my candles are all "food smells" and I'm with you, give me cookies or bread baking anytime!

Farmgirl Gourmet said...

Very cute!! I'm a food smell kinda girl too! Nothing makes me feel more at home then a house full of amazing aromas from the oven or a slow cooker. I hope you have an amazing week Miss Koralee!!

Farmgirl Hugs!

Marilyn said...

Cute! Chocolate Chip cookies would definitely be my choice. Thanks for the visit.

{ Vintage by LOU LOU } said...

I'm an aromatherapy girl through and through and when you think of it, the wafting smell from choc chip cookies can be therapy in a sense making you feel happy, connecting you back to joyful and comforting times.....and then you get to eat them xo

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good evening gorgeous one!!! Oh you must have had so much fun with Sydney dear heart! And there must be MUCH to do in Seattle. You know that Ruben and I are planning a trip to Washington next year to see two blogger friends!!!! Hmmmm....I wonder how he would feel about taking a trip up to your end of the world! I am hanging on this week til the end of the week so I can JUMP FOR JOY and start my whole week long rest...I hope! ARE YOU HAVING FUN???? ENJOY every moment, for those we love are the most important, n'est-ce pas??

MUCH LOVE, Anita

Susan has it absolutely right!!!!

Libbie said...

Made me laugh too! I am not really a "smelly person" myself :) When people give me perfumes & like room sprays & stuff...I give them to Annie & she is in HEAVEN! but tonight when I went up to pray with her...Her room STUNK like pinneapple room spray :) I told her that has a one pump a night limit...but tonight she admitted...she did 4 :) Glad I don't have to sleep in there!!! :)

Cute pic too Koralee!!!

Hi there,
What would we do without fragrance, color,(especially pink and blue ;) and cookies fresh from the oven.
Happy Spring! Thanks for visiting me too!

Squirrelhaus said...

I have to say you are the queen of beautiful colors!! Your blogs always make me smile!
Chris :o)

Indie.Tea said...

I like lavender, but the real stuff, lavender flowers, not lavender-scented stuff. And I agree, aromatherapy isn't very aromatic!

Lisa said...

I know three men who all sneeze around lavender. My daughter gets headaches from it and Eucalyptus oil. I like both of them in small doses.

Cheers,
Lisa x

francis said...
