Not every oil will resonate with you, of course. Since we are working with aromatherapy here and the general sense of smell (which is a very personal thing) you’re not likely to experience smells in the same way as anyone else. The information contained in essentialoildiffuserhq is for general information purposes only.
Of course there are oils that are generally well received for use for their propensity to incite desirable emotions. But you might have an aversion to oil for any number of reasons, and that’s okay.
- Rose – it’s hard to find more romantic oil. It is often called the essential oil of love. It helps open the heart center to receive love and strength, helping a person to love oneself and reduce feelings of fear and unworthiness. Rose stirs desire, enhances self-esteem and confidence, lifts depressive states, remedies grief, detoxes and purifies the blood, improves digestion, improves circulation, increases improves uterine function and combats stress & nervous tension.
- Ylang Ylang works effectively on the emotions. It is a well-known aphrodisiac as well as a support in times of bereavement. It doesn’t matter the situation – Ylang Ylang will provide what you need to balance out emotional hyper-arousal or upset. Its calming effects are particularly helpful to make your experience feel deeper and more profound. It prevents both Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) and Hyperpnoea (fast, shallow breathing). This soothes the emotions of anxiety, anger, worry and fear – and gets you in the mood for some loving!!!!
- Sandalwood is one of the oldest known perfume materials. It’s been used for at least 4,000 years continuously. Sandalwood is a potent tension reliever, relaxes muscles and calms blood pressure. In India it is often combined with rose in the famous scent aytar. The smell alone is enough to relieve a days’ worth of stress and tension (for me at least).
- Cardamom has been used extensively as a domestic spice, especially in India and Middle Eastern countries. It’s been a part of traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for over 3000 years. Cardamom has a favorable scent and is calming to the nervous system, relieving mental fatigue and nervous strain.
