Romance is in the Air: Aromatherapy

Many women love romance. Aromatherapy is a wonderful way to fill your environment with the scents that you love. By keeping your favorite scents around you, you can create a certain feel or atmosphere. Romance is a wonderful feminine atmosphere that you can nurture in your home. Jasmine, Gardenia, Rose, and Geranium are all associated with romance and love. If you would like to encourage the presence of love, consider using these oils in your Aromatherapy practices.

You can burn rose candles in each room. Great Aromatherapy candles may be made out of Soy wax. These candles are all-natural and burn clean. That means that they leave no soot behind or have any pollution type materials in them. If you are taking a bubble bath, or just feeling romantic, the scent of roses in bloom may be the perfect addition to set the mood.

Gardenia is another exotic and romantic scent. The flower is known for its incredibly fragrant aroma. Gardenia oil may be diluted for use on skin or in your bath. Add ten drops of Gardenia Oil to carrier base oil, such as 1 ounce of Jojoba oil. You may apply this oil directly on your skin. It is important to note that as a safety precaution, using essential oils directly on your skin without diluting them may cause skin irritations to occur. And of course, always read the safety precautions on the labels of your essential oils before using them.

Jasmine is another scent that is exquisitely beautiful. A house filled with the scent of Jasmine is beautifully romantic. Jasmine is also a main base for many perfumes and you will appreciate its floral beauty. You can add Jasmine to your shampoo and conditioner for a beautiful floral treat that will perfume your hair and make it smell heavenly.

You can also create your own romantic face creams and lotions. Add 2-5 drops of Rose oil to your favorite creams and lotions for a wonderful treat. This may be used as a body lotion then followed with a dab of rose oil perfume.

Aromatherapy can relax your mind and stimulate your senses. By using natural oils instead of chemical scents you are not just receiving a nice smelling product, but the essential oil carries all of the same properties that are inherent to the plant. Blending Geranium and Rose can make a beautiful romantic fragrance. This may be the base for your Aromatherapy diffuser, candles, beauty products, perfumes, and even air fresheners. You can create a wonderful Geranium Rose air freshener that will add a touch of romance throughout your house whenever you decide you need a little touch of something floral and feminine.

To make Geranium Rose air freshener you will need a spray bottle, 20 drops of Geranium oil and 20 drops of Rose oil, and 1 ½ ounces of distilled water, and 1 ½ ounces of high proof alcohol such as Vodka. First combine the water and the alcohol into the bottle, then add in the Geranium and Rose oils. You can then shake the air freshener and you can let it sit for 24 hours before using. The scent may become stronger after it has a chance to “cure” together.
