The Fragrance of Earth

From the yeasty warmth of freshly baked bread to the clean, summery haze of lavender flowers, we all have favorite smells we find particularly comforting. What’s yours?

Comfort. Something we humans need even if everything is falling apart around us. Its the only thing that helps us to get back up again to face the world. Its very precious which helps us in shaping us the way we are.

Someone aptly said, “Ah the smell of salt and sand. There is no elixir on this blessed earth like it.” and I stand by those words. For yours truly, the smell of earth after an initial shower of rain is one of the most comforting things, ever. The way the surroundings get the fragrance of the soil and earth, making everything smell better or more specifically, makes everything feel better, is the most best thing mother nature can provide us with.

Speaking of mother, her preparation of omlette is the second best comforting smell I ever have. It takes me back to those times when I was a kid having a cold and her omlette would be the thing which comforted me. Sadly, as I prepare the omlette for her, I don’t get that fragrance.
