Aphrodisiac = a substance that enhances or stimulates passion and sexual arousal. There are no essential oils, herbs, foods, or chemicals that will magically or immediately arouse someone who does not want to become aroused. Aphrodisiacs are simply facilitators on that journey.
When we smell a substance we are actually breathing in hundreds of unique molecules that interact with the receptors in our olfactory system in thousands of different combinations. Our olfactory system has a direct connection to our limbic system, which is the most ancient and primitive part of our brain. Our limbic system deals with three key functions: emotions, memories, and arousal (stimulation). It takes a conscious effort to override the actions of our limbic system. Because of its role in forming memories, we can utilize the scents produced by the chemistry of essential oils to form INTIMACY MEMORIES that additionally have the power to rebalance our bodies and help them recover from any underlying issues.
When using synthetic scents, we can form scent memories, but the chemistry isn't there to balance our bodies. The underlying issues still exist and need to be addressed. When using therapeutic grade essential oils, even those who lack the ability to smell will benefit. Essential oils can cross the blood brain barrier and increase blood flow to tissue. Smelling a scent you find pleasing results in the desire to take part in more tactile sensations as well - it's a 'win win' scenario.
DID YOU KNOW: Romans applied aromatic essential oils to their hair, body and soles of feet as well! So you have options for ways to use them! And remember, aromatherapy doesn't have to be complicated. It can be as simple as smelling the flowers!
