Fresh Air and the Nose

In an unpolluted area like rural Newfoundland, the fresh air makes the nose more sensitive to scents. Many human-made scents, which are supposed to be pleasant, actually become irritating and offensive. All of us need to be careful about which chemicals we expose ourselves to.

A business here, in our lovely historic town, called East Coast Glow, makes delightful soaps from pure iceberg water, and wild ingredients foraged along our rugged coast.

The results are beautiful, aesthetically pleasing soaps. Each bar of soap is like a miniature work of art. As we pay more attention to the small details of our lives, including the soaps we use, gradually we enjoy more and more of the abundant life that the Lord desires for each of us.

  1. Sally, it’s not seemly for a macho, manly man like myself to pay much attention to soaps and other toiletries, but I do like the scent of oatmeal soap. My wife says bar soap leaves a scum on the shower walls, so that’s out, however, our grocery carries St. Ives brand oatmeal body wash.

  2. Sounds nice!
    Just a side note: I know someone who eats a diet that is totally organic, pesticide-free, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. One of the results of this toxin-free diet is that she doesn’t need deodorant – hasn’t used it in decades.

    1. So interesting ! I just ate some Philadelphia cream cheese, and then noticed the ingredients are ” modified milk ingredients”. Yikes ! I won’t be eating that again.
      Thanks for the information. πŸ€—

  3. Details are definitely important. This was a lovely analogy πŸ’• Asking God to open our eyes to see life from His perspective will help us to appreciate the little yet important things πŸ€— Thanks Sally!
