Earthy is used to describe an aroma that reminds us of fresh soil. Think mushrooms, the woods after the rain, a forest floor, and autumn leaves. These scents can include charred wood and smoky or green notes, and have been sought after for centuries for their therapeutic properties. Myrrh essential oil is a great earthy scent often used in meditation and can help relieve nervous tension and promote feelings of strength. Like Frankincense (another earthy essential oil), it’s also a prized ingredient in facial products for mature skin.
