Aromatherapy?

Postby SarahC » Wed Jul 02, 2008 1:36 pm

I had a brainwave (I think lol). My biggest problem time for eating is at night time, after dinner. I've tried many, many things. I'm thinking, next I will try burning incense candles in my kitchen after dinner, maybe the smell will make me not want to eat... or at least calm down the picking bug and make me relax.

The question is though, what kind/fragrance should I get??

I could get something that smells gross and makes me too ill to eat. Or something that's relaxing and makes me go to sleep... :?

you have to be careful here. I've heard some fragrances can cause triggers for depression & so on. If you get the right sent i don't see any harm in trying it out.

I got some funky indian fragrance at lunchtime yesterday. I was a bit lazy last night to set it up, plus I didn't finish in the kitchen till about 9:30pm (nearly beddime lol). Might have a go tonight. Not sure how to set them up so I don't burn stuff though.... :?

do you have the burner that looks like a bunsen burner & use a tea light candle & pour oil on the top layer thing? if that's what you have light candle, poor oil & let it do its magic. Can’t remember if you have 2 mix with water. :?

you should definitely have it covered ;)

like an incense stick? cos you can get some cute holders for incense - if you ever go to highpoint, go to dusk - they have nice ones! or nice candle holders if it's a long candle!

This is what you need -it's an incense holder - it lets the incense burn and catches the ash underneath :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hi Sarah, if you have an oil burner, have you considered wax melts. I found this fantastic supplier on ebay and online. They supply all sorts of scents and are amazing. Here is the website for you to have a look at http://www.kandlekitchen.com.au/store/Default.asp

Thanks, I don't have a oil burner but will check out the website :wink:

Got an incence holder (only $1.50 at the same place I got the incence from) and had a go of it last night. I managed to stink out my living room instead of the kitchen lol, the smoke went the wrong way! But it did stop me from eating as the smell was pretty gross, made me feel a little funny :shock:

I don't think incense is good for cats though.... my cat went a little nuts after a few good whiffs haha :lol:
