Orange Blossom Essential Oil: "Always Summer"
Citrus Cinensis (Blossom): Sweet, sunshine, light, soft touch, gentle yet compelling, summer, radiance, the full flowering of life.
A woman goes to market for the first time since her husband died after a long illness. She is dressed in black and feels as though she has lived a thousand life times.
It is high summer and as she walks, she gets too hot and at first, drops her thick black woollen scarf down to her shoulders; but it is such a beautiful day, and such a long walk along the country road where everything is bursting with life now and a riot of flowers and weeds stretch and reach beneath the young summer sun, eventually she has to take the heavy cloak off altogether and carries it over her arm instead.
A large cart filled with many workmen passes her on the road; they whistle, laugh and call. For a moment, she looks around to find who might be the target of their sport, and then she realises - they mean her!
