I never gave it much thought before today, but I wonder what Christmas elves smell like?
A little sawdust, a whiff of glue, and a soft breath of snow?
Whatever else, I imagine Santa's helpers smell like a healthy handful of fresh candy canes!
If you'd like to play elf this season, get your head in the game by first splashing on a dose of Lick It Vigorously, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's lovely sugared peppermint brew.
It's not edible, but I bet in addition to enhancing your inner elf, it also would work well as a mood-booster (unless you hate peppermint, that is!). Try a slow sniff when you have a headache or a tummy ache - peppermint is thought to be a potent aromatherapy aide for those issues.
I may just drop a bit of Lick It Vigorously in an oil burner on Christmas Eve to settle any rattled and frayed nerves and really set that mood (and make Santa and the elves feel right at home when they stop by!).
