5 key oils for inspiring love

Essential oils are THE fastest way to affect your mood. When you smell an aroma, within seconds, it passes through the olfactory bulb to the limbic system, which is the part of the brain that manages memory and emotions. So what better way to inspire love in our lives than to savor some sweet smells!

This is the oil of love and trust. Used over the heart chakra, it can help open us up to the possibility of deep, unconditional love. Would you like to foster more receptivity to love and human connection in your life? Get all over that Geranium, my friend.

You would recognize the smell of Bergamot if you've ever enjoyed an Earl Grey tea; Bergamot is a citrus fruit used to give Earl Grey its unique flavor profile. Bergamot is both uplifting and calming, and as the oil of self-acceptance, it's a must-have for assisting us in sharing our inner-selves with our beloveds, or allowing intimacy into our lives.

To be wholly intimate, we must love and connect with our bodies. Patchouli is the oil of physicality, so it helps us become fully present in our physical bodies, and encourages confidence and strength. It's also well-regarded as a natural aphrodisiac ... no wonder it was THE fragrance of the 60s ...

The oil of sexual harmony, Cinnamon helps to rekindle and rebalance sexual energy where there has been repression or disconnection. It's a spicy one, so I recommend diluting with a carrier oil, like fractionated coconut, before applying topically. 

Any time I bust open this oil at a class, the ladies virtually LOSE their minds. It is a blend designed specifically for women as a warming aroma to entice and intrigue the senses. Many of my female friends wear it as their signature scent, which is much better for our hormones than expensive chemical- and preservative-laden perfumes.
