I am having fun! 🙂
Yesterday was lovely, and today was really fun too. I chose to add some spice to my “5 simple ways to overcome mood swings” post. It’s something I thought of for a while.
I wanted to post it in my blog already, but felt it wasn’t good enough because it’s a little boring. The opening and closing paragraphs are much better now, but the body… meh. Herb after herb after herb. I didn’t know what to do.
But this module inspired me! I had an idea- to use a metaphor to describe herb actions. I added metaphors to two herbs only (to not overdo it). Here’s what came out (I marked the additions with **):
Rosemary essential oil can help improve his mood. **It opens the curtains to let some light in. Kind of like a cheerful friend coming to visit, filling your home with sunshine and rolling laughter.**
John Gerard was an English herbalist, who lived between 1545-1612. He wrote that rosemary plants “comfort the heart, and make it merry, quicken the spirits, and make them more lively”.
Now wouldn’t you want that?
**Camomile tea is like a quiet, warm bubble bath after a hectic day. It’s relaxing, calming, and prepares you for a good night’s sleep.** It can also treat gas and stomach aches.
You can find camomile tea bags in every supermarket. Verbena is also calming, but isn’t as common as camomile.
What do you think?..
Should I do the same with the other herbs? Or leave it for a possible metaphoric post?
