This Monday post will be a little different from the usual ones. Many of you know that I am an aromatherapist and that I am running an aromatherapy practice (next to my job as a compliance officer). That means I am working with essential oils in different kinds of ways. Here you can find a post where I explain the different ways essential oils can be used. Read more ›

Day 19 #Loveuary ❤Aphrodisiacs

My blog sister, Ritu, of But I Smile Anyway has a beautiful challenge going through this Valentine month. You find more information here!

When I saw Ritu’s prompt for today I thought of Ylang Ylang immediately. I am aromatherapist and Ylang Ylang is THE aphrodisiacal essential oil. Here is a very good explanation about it from Wikipedia:

“The essential oil is used in aromatherapy. It is believed to relieve high blood pressure, normalize sebum secretion for skin problems, and is considered to be an aphrodisiac. According to Margaret Mead, it was used as such by South Pacific natives such as the Samoan Islanders where she did much of her research. The oil from ylang-ylang is widely used in perfumery for oriental or floral themed perfumes (such as Chanel No. 5). Ylang-ylang blends well with most floral, fruit and wood scents.
In Indonesia, ylang-ylang flowers are spread on the bed of newlywed couples. In the Philippines, its flowers, together with the flowers of the sampaguita, are strung into a necklace (lei) and worn by women and used to adorn religious images.”

Scents trigger something in our brain. They stimulate our mood, influence our hormonal balance, and store memories. The way we are “constructed” makes us more receptive for particular scents and less for others, more liking the ones and disliking others. And that is why there is that specific scent which is more aphrodisiacal than any other scent. And that is the scent of the one you love. It is also one of the reasons you felt attracted in the beginning. Scents play an important role in mating no matter whether animals or humans 😉 😍

Facts on Aromatherapy

By today I only blogged as an author. But I would also like to introduce you to my profession as an aromatherapist. In aromatherapy, we are working with essential oils. That are fragrant extracts of flowers, leaves, roots, fruits, and resin. All of those oils contain a variety of healing effects to body and mind and can be used for any kind of problems or at least as an additional supportive therapy. Today there are about 70 essential oils which are used for healing treatments. Read more ›
