A SCENT RELATED MEMORY FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD:
Fresh cut grass! It reminds me of baseball games with my brothers, annual croquet parties at my aunt and uncle's farm in Virginia, and summertime in North Carolina.
FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OIL NOW, AND WHY:
Lavender, always. I've used lavender buckwheat eye pillows for years to soothe headaches, minimize stress and promote a good night's rest.
MUSIC I'M LISTENING TO THESE DAYS:
Aesop Rock, The Black Keys, DJ Shadow and a lot of soundtracks.
YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOU:
My ability to trust my gut.
A cat named Stella and a spotted python named Pearl.
FAVORITE MEMORY OF YOUR MOM:
Always saving me a small bowl of dough when she made my great grandmother's pie. She still does this and I still love her for it.
DEATH ROW MEAL:
Hungarian goulash, Babci's plum pie and a Bell's Two Hearted Ale.
