Home Essentials

Don’t really care if essential oils work as promised or not.

When you live in the tropics and your thermostat entirely consists of opening or closing windows, scented candles are useless.  Particularly when you live near the top of a valley and get nice cooling breezes on a regular basis.  Any subtle scent you light up gets blown right out into the yard.

Not so with a vaporizer and essential oils.  Something about the heavier and wetter nature of how they operate allows you to actually adjust what your house smells like.  Even if the promised mental health effects are limited to placebo levels, this has still been a nice change of pace.  And the youngest loves the glowball when the night rolls around.

Apparently there is a whole essential subculture out there.  Addicts.  Something about the hardcore vaccine pushers hating on the hardcore anti-vaccine crowd.  The usual culture and counter-culture.

I just know it smells good, and that’s good enough for me.

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
