Now Smell This!


Now its time to get out two of your essential oils:

Cumin Datasheet – 


Take out two of your perfume strips. Using a sharpie marker, write the name of each essential oil along the strip. Now, open your essential oil bottle and place one drop of the named essential oil on the end of the strip. Wave the strip beneath your nose and become familiar with its scent. Now, visit its datasheet in Lesson Six: Essential Oil Datasheets. Smell each oil as you study about its characteristics. After each fragrance, take a deep whiff of your coffee beans to clear your palette.
