A Scent-A-Day with EdieAnne: Sheer Innocence

A Scent-A-Day with EdieAnne: Sheer Innocence 

Sweet and youthful: lush orchid, green freesia, and wild violet infused with a trace of spicy ginger.

"Some people use freesia flowers or oils in aromatherapy for improved happiness."
Freesia does not smell as much like lemon as it does like honey and mint. Freesia is an ornamental, fragrant bulb flower growing in purple, pink, yellow, light blue, cream and orange. The flowers emit a strong, recognizable fragrance during flowering season in the height of summer.
Fressia is A light floral scent that is very pleasing for year round. Great in Spring, and summer. Aromatherapy benefits. Sensual, romantic, anchoring, soothing. The fragrance of freesia is incomparable in that it contains a cheerful bouquet of peppery zing and floral freshness projected at the right intensity, a delicious aroma that radiates for a long distance. High in linalool, a major component in all freesia varieties, it emits a refreshing, floral woody aroma with a subtle citrusy-terpenic note.

"The happiness of that afternoon was already fixed in her mind,
and always would the scent of freesia recall it to her mental sight,
for among the smells of the roses and violets and lilies and wall-flowers,
the smell of the freesia penetrated, as a melody stands out from its
accompaniment, and gave her the most pleasure."
