Herbal Aphrodisiacs August 16, 2004 11:16 PM

all of the above plus Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) and cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) essential oils are both considered to be aphrodisiacs with energizing properties. The essential oils of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) and cardamom (Eletteria cardamomum) are derived from the seeds of the plants and have long-standing reputations as aphrodisiacs. Coriander's use as an aphrodisiac dates back as far as ancient Egypt. Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) and jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum) essential oils are predominantly sweet floral scents with warm, sensual, euphoric properties. Promoting a sense of calm and relaxation, these oils have the potential to transport lovers far from the routines of daily life. Their intense fragrances suggest a tropical paradise and simultaneously soothe away inhibiting anxieties or distractions. Clary sage (Salvia sclarea), patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) and neroli (Citrus aurantium) essential oils are warm, rich, sweet, and slightly exotic. All are intensely sensual. Musky clary sage, noted for its euphoric properties, is also harmonizing, centering, and calming. Patchouli, likewise, has a balancing, grounding component in its earthy fragrance that helps to ease anxiety. Neroli may not be a good choice for a casual night of fun. Its scent and effect run deep; lending support to love and sexual-emotional connection. Rose maroc (Rosa centifolia) and rose otto (Rosa damascena) have similar properties. Harmonizing, comforting, and romantic, they are reputed to be particularly appealing to women.Though rose otto has a more profound and rich floral fragrance, it is rose maroc that is associated with passion. Both rose essential oils blend well with clary sage, lavender, and ylang ylang. Aura Cacia's recipe for Aphrodite's Amorous Blend combines two drops neroli, three drops each of rose absolute (Rosa centifolia), jasmine absolute, and sandalwood (Santalum album) with four drops ylang ylang. For perfume, add oils to one-half ounce jojoba oil; to spritz sheets, hair, or clothes, add to one ounce of alcohol instead and pour into an atomizer. Sincerely, D'esirae  [ send green star]
 
Thanks for the reply!!! August 16, 2004 11:51 PM

I like to use differen't scents throughout my home. I've always used Sandalwood or Patchouli for the bedroom. I recently started using Ylang Ylang when I read some considered it to be sexually stimulating (to the senses). Of couse I wanted to double check...I did some of my own research (usually do) - But I love posting to get "REAL" feedback...it's been very helpful to me. Advertisements and the media always make things out to be the best thing since sliced bread....LOL I'm looking forward to mixing up the Aphrodite's Amorous Blend !!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

vanilla too August 21, 2004 9:28 AM

Hi guys, Vanilla is also very good for men. I make a perfume with Vanilla, Cinnamon, and Sandalwood which is always well received As is a mix of Patchouli, Cedarwood, and sweet grass (with a touch of ylang ylang)... but the first one is better.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
