Aphrodisiacs are substances that enhance sexual pleasure or sexual desire. Throughout history often aphrodisiacs were in the form of perfume to affect the emotions and as a personal scent to attract romance and love. Perfume is still used today for the same reasons.
Aromatherapy is more than perfume, the essential oils affect the circulatory, hormonal and nervous systems, involved in sexual desire and pleasure. These are pheromones, and work on sexual excitation sending out odor signals especially on the face, making kissing so pleasurable!
Aromatherapy can stimulate many different moods such as warmth, femininity, euphoria, romance or spirituality and can enhance feelings of self confidence, joy and a general feeling of well-being.
The olfactory system and its direct association with the limbic brain, is very powerful and can affect emotions, memory and certain regulatory functions. Not only do the fragrance oils calm you, but they also uplift!
Odours influence both the physical and emotional aspects of our being, including pleasure, reproductive cycles, sex drive, memory and emotions.
