What’s your favorite incense or essential oil? (Aroma therapy?)

I smoke a pipe, and I love a pleasant olfactory experience. One of my favorite types of pipe tobacco contains Latakia that has a frankincense smell to it. So, I just purchased some frankincense and myrrh incense. I like camphor, menthol, pine and spruce extracts, certain floral scents, vanilla, safrole, and sandalwood to name some others.

What are some of your favorite incenses or essential oils (if you are into aroma therapy)?

I have bad sensitivities to artificial/chemical fragrances. For true 100% pure essential oils I like:

  • Lemon
  • Bergamot
  • Peppermint
  • Wintergreen
  • Sandalwood
There are other true/pure botanical essential oils that I like but those are off the top of my head.

I like lavender and lilac. And roses of course. Spruce and pine wood has a very nice smell, I have worked a lot with wood and when you're sawing some spruce it's a pleasure to work with. You have that smell around you.

@Forest Cat My family owned a Christmas tree farm full of spruces, pines, and firs. I used to be mesmerized by scents while walking through the farm. It eventually turned into a mini pine forest that served as a haven for wild life and mushrooms. I’ve read that smells can trigger memories in one’s deep past. It seems true.

That sounds like the best possible thing a family could own.

It was very hard work though. We had to prune the trees the old fashioned way with long 2.5 ft knives. And we had thousands of trees to prune within a few weeks under a pounding summer sun. But when pruning season ended, the farm was a joy.

Thanks for the work you put into the trees. My favorite season is Christmas and my artificial tree is still up!

Cherry Pipe Tobacco!!!!!

I forgot tobacco, I have always liked the smell of that. I think it could be because from I was very young, I would sit in the backseat of our car rolling cigarettes for my dad when he was driving long trips. He couldn't roll and drive. My mom didn't smoke and I think she was tired of rolling, so she taught me how to roll them perfect. She was clever. And the smell just stuck with me, it's a very nice smell. A warm and friendly smell.

Right there with the rest of you on pine scent. That is my favorite. I also like lavender. I like scented candles as long as I'm not allergic to them.

Unfortunately I'm allergic to most fragrances and incense!! :oops:

don´t know if it´s comparable, but I always liked to bath (but have no bathtub in this appartment sadly) and I tried many addition salts (Badezusätze). I liked melissa the most. I liked also juniper, arnica, pine, lavendel, mint and some others that I can not remember. patchouli is very special, interesting and not bad, but I don´t like it as much as the others.

The scent of my wife and children. I often need to hug them and smell their necks because their pheromones calm me.
