Introduction:Hippies often love candles, incense, potpourri, sprays, perfumes, scented soaps, essential oils, etc. Here are the top five scents that hippies love to smell.
A lot of times when people smell patchouli, they think it smells like a headshop. There's a good reason for that. Headshops are often run by and frequented by hippies, so patchouli is often the scent of choice as patchouli is the MOST used scent of hippies. Hippies just love patchouli!
Sandalwood is a great scent for hippies because it is earthy, musky, strong, and not gender specific (as opposed to more floral scents.) Sandalwood is often used for incense around an alter or during spiritual ceremonies (or 4-20 related ceremonies.) Hippies love sandalwood.
Lavender is a great scent for hippies because it is fresh, natural, strong, and soothing. In fact, many hippies use lavender for that last reason. Lavender is known for its therapeutic properties, so you will often find it in aromatherapy blends or in homemade hippie oils, lotions, soaps, and bath salts. It is used for relaxation predominantly, and sometimes hippies feel a lot of stress and need a way to unwind. Hence why hippies turn to lavender.
Jasmine is another great scent for hippies because not only does it come from the Earth and smell fresh, floral, and amazing, but it can also be a child's name! Hippies love to name their children after things in nature, feelings they have, and things they like. (Side note: They also name kids based on dreams or visions they may have had... or they will let the kids name themselves...) But Jasmine is a great name (and a great scent) so it's no wonder hippies love jasmine so much.
Hippies like sage in all its forms! They like to cook with sage (and smell it as it cooks); they like to smoke certain varieties of sage; and they like to burn sage for its scent and smoke. Some hippies even believe that if you burn sage throughout your home you will drive out negative energy and cleanse your home. (This can also be done with cedar.) With all its uses, it isn't surprising that hippies love sage.
Other scents hippies may enjoy? Try vanilla, cedar, Nag Champa, plumeria, and lilac.
