I bought a stress-reliever scent port from Bath and Body Works yesterday for my Stress unit I'm doing in Psychology. I planned to fill my classroom with the calming, stress-relieving scents of eucalyptus and spearmint whilst we learned about stress. I plugged in the scent port in our poorly ventilated bathroom yesterday for a test drive and to infuse my own life with some aromatherapy.
I woke up this morning to the most over-powering smell of eucalyptus and spearmint...I mean gag-inducing potency. I walked into our poorly-ventilated bathroom only to discover that I, being a complete genius, plugged in the scent port upside down, and the entire bulb of aroma oil dripped all over the bathroom counter and my hair straightener. Not only does my hair smell like eucalyptus and spearmint (b/c of course I still used my straightener), I am stressed out over the overwhelming smell that is permeating our entire house.
In the words of a famous Canadian, "Isn't it ironic?" Yeah, I really do think.
