Love is in the Air
It is hard to not think of February synonymously with Valentine’s Day, and in turn, Valentine’s Day with Love! With the arrival of February, consumers are reminded to shower “that special someone” with chocolates, flowers and baubles, date nights and professions of love! There will be first kisses, first I love yous and proposals for marriage.
Love is a powerful force! It can be sparked by a smile, a laugh, beauty and even smell!
People can actually fall in love based on the attraction to another’s scent. We each exudel unique pheromones, our individualized scent. It also makes sense that aromatherapy can play a part in aiding in attraction to one another.
Many Essential Oils are said to have varying properties and could very well be what the tip of Cupid’s arrow is dipped in! Listed below are just a few of such oils:
Sandalwood: This woodsy, warm oil is masculine, soothing and enticing!
Rose or Rose Geranium: Feminine and romantic, Rose is probably the most common scent associated with Valentine’s Day and Love and is also associated with the archetype “Goddess of Love”.
Ylang Ylang: is an aromantic favorite! It enhances relationships and is perfect for diffusing on a romantic evening.
Orange or Sweet Orange: is uplifting to the spirit, helping to release anxiety and promote joy.
Lavender: is one of the most popular of oils for good reason. It promotes relaxation and relieves anxiety.
Patchouli: this unique oil has an exotic, earthy fragrance that is sensual and helps to bring peace of mind and inner calm.
