You know how scents brings back memories? I love how smells can take us on a journey… a scentsational journey, if you will! Triggering images in our brain of happy times!
Like the smell of mushrooms. It takes me back to comforting casserole dinners around the kitchen table with my family. Or the smell of rain. That reminds me of the homes I grew up in with the windows wide open. Smoke smells immediately take me back to summers spent camping with my family, huddled around a warm fire. I could on and on!
One of my favourites is getting the scent of coconut! Coconut scents takes me to the islands of Hawaii, where my husband and I said ‘I do!’ and then honeymooned. Sun, relaxation, romance, laughter… it’s one of my favourite places on earth, and I look forward to the day I can bring all three of my children back for a visit!
I was taken on that journey just this morning and it all happened while doing the normally boring task of washing my hair. I was using the brand new Garnier Whole Blends shampoo and conditioner, which not only hydrated my very dry hair, but also left it feeling very soft to the touch! The coconut water and vanilla milk scent smelled so good that I honestly wanted to wash my hair twice! That never happens!
The Garnier Whole Blends line is Paraben Free, contains natural extracts and uses gentle sulfates. I love how each blend focuses on a unique hair action eg. nourishes and protects.It’s safe for everyone in the family who use regular types of hair products, too! Now we just need to work on my willingness to share…
I know when it comes to showering, a lot of us try to get in and out as fast as possible. But for a busy Mom with kids, it’s really a much needed break from reality and duties. It’s a chance to wash off the day or start it right! For me, using something that uses natural extracts and smells as amazing as the Garnier Whole Blends line does, just takes that break to another level.
Couldn’t you use a five minute vacation?
