4 Olfactory Destinations To Experience In A Lifetime

Harvested roses from Grasse.

With the main holiday season of the year now coming to an end and Autumn just around the corner you might want some ideas for your next trip.  In which case, I might have a few ideas for you. Perhaps you’re looking for a holiday with a different perspective.  Maybe somewhere which has a cultural twist but also where you can still enjoy long days languishing in sunshine.  Have you considered somewhere where you could enjoy the experience of delicious fragrance?  I’m assuming that you are reading this blog because you are interested in scent and as an aromatherapy candle-maker; I’ve spent much of my holidaying time finding new scents.  This means I’ve travelled to many different places well-known for their essential oils. 

Bearing the above in mind, here are the Petits Rituels favourite holiday places, what they’re famous for and a little more information on each area.  I’d love to know if you do visit them!

Are Your Household Cleaning Products Toxic?

Household cleaning products.

The cleaning aisles of supermarkets are jam-packed full of different cleaning products, each promising to make your oven shine brighter than ever before, to get your wooden floors restored to their natural glory, to wipe away the deepest grime and bacteria in your bathroom or kitchen but in doing so did you know that they could actually be dangerous to your health, and particularly to children.

Do You Know Why Flowers Produce Scent?

There’s nothing quite as heavenly as walking into a room full of gorgeous fresh flowers or enjoying the scent of a natural aromatherapy candle releasing its floral bouquet.  Equally, visiting a beautifully manicured park, sitting in a pretty floral garden or picnicking in an unspoiled meadow full of wild flowers is a magical experience of delicious fragrance that cannot be matched by manmade or artificial aromas.  Bearing the above in mind, have you ever wondered why flowers produce their intoxicating scent? Why is it that some flowers have a very strong smell whereas others barely emit fragrance?  Of course, you know it’s to attract pollinators but there are other reasons too.  Let Petits Rituels give you some insight into the world of flower scents.

7 Spring Cleaning Rituals

Pots of Hyacinthes in a bright room.

I really love the Springtime!  For me, it signifies new beginnings far more than the New Year and that’s because there’s so much newness all around. I adore the welcome earlier mornings with sunlight streaming through my windows to the sound of the singing birds, who have finally returned from their winter hiatus and the longer days ahead.  I love the flowers that Spring up all round me, in my garden, the park and brightening up the houses where I live; the happy daffodils, the sweet-smelling hyacinths and soon, the graceful tulips in their vivid reds and pinks.  It’s a gorgeous time of year.  There’s the hint of better weather as the temperature slowly starts to climb, plus there are all the long, luxurious weekends to bask in and enjoy time with friends.  Oh – and let’s not forget that Easter is just round the corner, a weekend of festivities filled with Easter egg hunts, lingering lunches and time spent with family.  With all of the above in mind, I like to use my time to Spring clean.  Of course, we all clean year round but Spring promises so much, it’s a time to think about newness and cleansing your home as well as your mind.  Taking this into consideration, here are my own special Petits Rituels for Spring Cleaning.

Be Your Own Valentine

self-love

In an age where looking good is so high up on many women’s priority lists (that’s not to say it’s not important to men either) sometimes it’s wise to sit back and take stock. Women today do want to look good but everyone (regardless of sex or age) wants to feel good too and actually, to look your very best, you need to feel positive about yourself. Deep within, if you aren’t happy or you are carrying around an inordinate amount of stress it does show on your skin, face and even the way you hold yourself. It also appears in your personality. Someone who isn’t feeling great will reflect it in the way they hold their head up, or perhaps the way they move. So it’s important to love yourself and while it’s easier said than done, trust Petits Rituels, it can be done with a few subtle changes.

Hygge Yourself A Merry Christmas With Petits Rituels

Hygge lifestyle.

At Petits Rituels, we’ve fallen in love with the Danish craze known as “Hygge”. Do you know what it is? We did spell it correctly and say Hygge and not hug although we love doing both and actually they’re part and parcel of the same thing!  Firstly, it’s worth mentioning that the Danes have just been voted number one happy nation in the world and that’s because of their Hygge mentality.  For those of you who’ve never heard of what we’re talking about, it’s something celebrities everywhere are embracing. At Petits Rituels, we’re hot on their heels because Hygge is all about feeling good about yourself and appreciating the little things as much as possible.  We think it encapsulates our own Petits Rituels products – those little rituals that mean so much.

The Scientific Benefits Of Aromatherapy Candles
