Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top.

Get yourself some fragrance therapy today

You're probably wondering what industrial-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner have got to do with fragrance therapy. Let me explain. As you know, I'm not very high maintenance. Like a friend of mine once said- not like those girls who have to go to the salon even before they go to the toilet for a poop. I'm not fussy about what shampoo and conditioner I use. After years of washing and conditioning my hair, I know that ALL shampoos and conditioners are the SAME. But also, after years of washing and conditioning my hair, especially since I grew it out, I've noticed that I go through a lot of shampoo and conditioner. Almost every forty five days I'm buying another bottle of shampoo and conditioner, and though it's not very expensive, it still adds up. I know, still nothing to do with fragrance therapy, but stay with me.

So I chanced upon these 5 litre bottles of shampoo and conditioner {let's call them S & C for brevity's sake}, a few weeks back and promised myself I'd buy them once the ones I had got over. This week my S & C finished, so I went to the shop. I had a headache and I wasn't in the best of moods when I entered. I told the saleswoman I wanted the 5 l bottles of S & C. That's when she made me sniff the one in the pic. AND OHMIGOD. Blast-from-the-past-twilight-zone moment! It was the same shampoo with which my hairdresser used to wash my hair! {I had been going to her for years and years before I stopped, to let my hair grow out.} I would always love the almond-y smell of the S & C she used on my hair. She was brilliant with the hair wash and always gave me a long, gorgeous head massage during.

So you see, all these memories came flooding back in the microsecond that it took me to sniff the shampoo. And the most amazing thing happened- the headache and fatigue I was feeling when I entered the shop, disappeared! I felt amazingly cheered up for almost an entire hour after.

It's crazy how something as simple as a smell can trigger memories and completely change your mood. And it convinced me to use aromatherapy more often. {I lit a scented candle before I sat down to write this post.}

So maybe try some fragrance therapy for yourself today- maybe light some scented candles, go to a bakery to smell freshly-baked bread, cook something with cinnamon in it, or spray your favorite perfume on... whatever makes you feel happy... while I go wash my hair.

  2. This story is hilarious!
    I get the same way when I walk into a bakery. Oh the smell of freshly baked bread, or the smell of butter. Oh smell so good. It just takes me to my happy place of cake land. :D
