Well, after thinking about my previous post of “just do it,” I decided at the risk of sounding like an infomercial, that I wanted to share some facts about how important your sense of smell is in the act of love. It is odd that we so often overlook scent when we think about finding a mood for love because the limbic part of our brain that registers scent is also the part of the brain that controls memory, emotion and sexuality. I learned all these facts in my studies of aromatherapy for the benefit of our good clean love oils. Real scent, essential oil scent, travels both through the skin and through the inhalation of the nose. The chemical compounds that make up essential oils actually change your brain chemistry (and that of your partner) while you are using them. It creates a kind of scent bridge, that is unique to the two of you.
When I do group demonstrations of our love oils, customers are genuinely shocked to see how different a love oil can be on them and everyone else in the group. They heighten your own special pheromone chemistry and alchemically make a whole new chemistry between you and your love.
So when you decide you want to “just do it” but can’t quite figure out how to get there, try using true scents, aphrodisiacs that have been used for centuries. True story: Cleopatra covered her ship’s sails in rose oils and swept into the harbor, capturing her lover’s attention and heart in a moment.
I will be at Bioneers for the weekend. So if anyone reading is planning on attending, come by for a demonstration and a free sample.

It becomes hard to trust your own thinking when nothing seems to be working. The space between how I thought it would go and how it is going seems to widen in front of my eyes. Maybe most difficult of all is how often the undesirable outcomes around us spill over into our relationships, both at home and at work. An errant comment too easily turns into an argument. I become blind to my impact on people around me, caught up in the unresolved problems surrounding me. During times like these, we often underestimate the power of the choices we make and how it can create a path back towards what’s working or down the slippery slope of self-destruction, which my husband affectionately calls “flirting with the gutter.”
Here is my short list to making it better when it isn’t working at all. Each one helps you do the next one, so start at the beginning and work your way down.
