"Aromagical" is a
series created in 2022. It's inspired by the vision I saw, when
I did meditations with essential oils. I believe that
fragrances are the power from mother nature, and can
instantly change our moods. Aromatherapy has helped me so
much, in terms of revealing and adjusting my own mental states
and emotions. Also, during the pandemic years, I have
witnessed many people experiencing a higher level of
stress, emotional swings, depression, and loneliness. So I
decided to share this "aroma magic" with people by creating this
series of illustrations.
“Sailing through the Lonesome” is a piece in this series I created from the smell of Rosewood. The aroma can be like a wooden boat for a tired but perseverant worrier. Giving a sense of reliance, It carries the worrier through the dark tunnel and passes through the puffy clouds to a bright new world. “Symphony of Metamorphosis” introduces the power of Jasmine. The mellow fragrance can enhance self-confidence and courage to socialize so one can become more relaxed and natural in a group. In my drawing, A pair of butterfly wings appear on the girl standing on a Jasmine pedal, giving her the courage to join the musical party in the flower. There is a meadow inside the Jasmine flower, and a red piano is waiting for her to play.

The sweetness and warmness scent of Cinnamon blending with the floral fragrance of Geranium create a welcoming living room.
The imagined eucalyptus tree grows from my lungs and passes through my nose to the sky. And then the tree meets a massive waterslide park on clouds.
The meditator is sitting in the heart of the soft-touching stone. A peaceful orange color shows when her eyes are closed. Little pine trees supporting the huge stone and the refreshing smell gently lift the girl's back straight.
In the airy forest glade, five happy girls dance barefoot in the pond surrounded by the swirl of orange flower petals.
The little girl turned into a tiny size after she ate a piece of orange. There are many toys and other tiny friends playing on the giant orange tree.
The girl falls asleep in the lavender field while the breeze is blowing and firefly fairies are awake. A shooting star falls into the lake when the girl has a sweet dream.
The leaves and branches are still growing from the little boat. The reliable boat carries the tired adventurer traveling through a dark time tunnel to a bright outer space.
The juniper berries dance around two gloomy clouds and built a rainbow between their hearts. Soon the clouds turn bright and happy. Also, some little gray clouds turn white as soon as they pass through the door hanging on the tree.
The girl is winding up her vintage music box. Little things that carry special memories fly out with the melody. The mild lemony aroma of Malissa attracts little bees. The two bees both hold a broken love fragment and they are going to merge them together.
