How do you connect to ancestors?
I find myself connecting with scent. Scent is a powerful reminder for me.
I often find scents which smell just like loved ones.
Does anyone else use scents to work with ancestors? From offering incense to wearing perfume.
Ways to use scent to connect:
Baking bread or the scent of fresh coffee or other foods loved ones enjoyed.
And also scents like after shave, whiskey, brandy, or vodka.
Some scents I use to work with ancestors:
Californian white sage and eucalyptus smudge, smells like my aunt's living room, alive but estranged.
Satya patchouli forest incense, my maternal grandmother.
Jade vine providence soap, reminiscent of my great aunt's perfume.
