12 or 13 years ago, I was in Colorado for a convention and I found a great-smelling little shop that sold candles (and other cool stuff.)
I bought one that invoked creativity and brought it home with me, making most of my luggage smell creative in the process.
I burnt that candle sparingly but eventually I had used it up. I was able to find another online (spending a fortune on shipping!) and used that one sparingly until it too was gone.
I kept a little bit of the wax – not nearly enough to melt into a new candle – just because it smelled so great- but I just couldn’t justify the expense of getting another shipped here.
Then, a few years back, I discovered that a local store – The Natural Emporium* – carried them so I have been happily invoking creativity ever since.
Do I actually need outside help to invoke creativity?
Do I enjoy how the smell of this candle puts me in mind of how often I have created things while the candle burned nearby?
It’s good to for anyone to surround themselves with reminders of the things that are important to them.
It’s especially important for people with ADHD because those visual cues (and olfactory cues in the case) can help keep our plans and wishes top of mind.
Also, I just like it.
