What’s in the Mix? Blending Ideas and Prompts is a weekly exercise designed to spark your imagination and get your creative juices flowing. Each week you’ll find a question, a suggestion or a prompt that will help you identify where you’re stuck, where you are flowing and where you need more education. Mostly, prompts are just fun!
About This Week’s Prompt: There are so many things that can inspire our blending. Sound can be one of them. I’m curious, does sound affect what you blend? More specifically, do you prefer to blend in silence or with music? What is it about silence that affects your blending? If music influences you, what music inspires you and how?

I love the smell of essentials oils. In order to focus and savour the aromas, I prefer to blend in silence. It is a spiritual experience as the previous commenter said.
