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.

Usually by the time we “spring forward,” most of us have long forgotten our New Year’s resolutions and not because we don’t want to change, but because the big sweeping ones we plan for after our third glass of champagne are so hard to get our hands around in the day to day. While the desire for change is earnest, what most of us miss is that real change is found in the small steps that we do consistently.

Our sense of smell is ancient and the source of our most powerful emotional memories. It is also the primal sensory pathway to sexual attraction. And yet, we often give little attention to all that our sense of smell can evoke, in part because we have so little vocabulary for scent. Often we're limited to “it smells like…” and delineated only between pleasant and unpleasant.
