... or the happiness of gifting ?
I was struck by one comment - that a gift of "stuff" can not bring happiness. It may bring pleasure, but the pleasure from even the most extravagant new "thing" wears off and disappears in a few months, while a gift of "experience" can last forever.
And I thought about all the memories from our trip to Colorado a couple of years ago - experiences that still make me smile two years later.
I started thinking about what we do here, and I realized that in so many cases, what we ship out every day truly are "experiences" rather than "things"...
True, they are packed in boxes and in bottles, jars, or atomizers, but you, the giver, can turn them from a "thing" to an experience.
Give a little one the experience of conquering his or her fears with a spritz of "Monster Spray"...otherwise known as Lavender or Roman Chamomile Hydrosol, to banish the monsters under the bed or in the closet.
The proven links between aroma and memory guarantee that the aromatic experiences you create will be remembered long after the "products" are gone.
