Day 23 #Loveuary ❤ – 35 Things I Love

loveuary-logo

I did not consider participating today. You know, once you have spent a whole day on the computer the motivation to continue after work is not that big. Also, some nights with not enough sleep doesn’t help either…… BUT……
when I left work and stepped outside I took the deepest breath. It is still winter but today we have the most beautiful spring day: sun, the birds are singing, 20 °C (about 70 °F). It even smells like spring. It felt like life’s energy had fulfilled me completely in an instant. I drove home with… guess what… open roof top and cranking the music 😂 Read more ›

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 😉 😍

The Love Letter

Heading to the mailbox
Every single day
Waiting for a letter
From my love, sent my way

Through snow storms and through rain
I go to get it checked
But I find only bills
Meanwhile, my nerves get wrecked

Then finally one day
Could not believe it’s true
A letter has arrived
And yes, it is from you

I tear the envelope apart
In high anticipation
Unfold the precious sheet
My heart, heavily racing

Oh, boy, what’s with your writing?
But no, I won’t give up
Now that it has arrived
I won’t already stop

Yet after two long hours
My eyes were tired and dry
All butterflies absconded
All romance has gone by

Instead my inner world
Is one big thunderstorm
Furious I stand up 
and walk to you next door

I throw the letter on the floor
And scream: “Well, thank you, dear!
You want to be romantic?
Then write before your beer!”

In Love and Light
