How Essential Oils Can Help Love and Heartache
Essential oils, love and heartache. What a combination these 3 make. Essential oils are used for a lot of things. Did you know that love and heartache are on the list?

When it comes to love, they can offer the perfect aphrodisiac. An aphrodisiac is a form of aromatherapy.

In essence there's no scientific explanation to explain how aromatherapy works. Yet we know that using our sense of smell, we experience aromatherapy on a daily basis. The sense of smell is said to heal for some people, uplift or others, and arouse for many more.

Essential Oils for Love

So when it comes to using essential oils in the space of love and aphrodisiacs, it's important to know and understand, especially if you're creating it yourself, how your blend will be built. Aphrodisiacs, just as perfumes, are built on notes, top note, middle note and bass notes.

Top notes are your most uplifting notes. They will last anywhere from 3 to 24 hours. Oils that are good for top notes are those like Bergamot, eucalyptus, Neroli, peppermint and basil.

Middle notes are the notes that last two to three days. These are like your core notes. So, if you're going to create an aphrodisiac for love, you'll want a scent that invokes somewhat of a sensual expression when smelled. Rose, lavender, fennel, sweet orange, chamomile, and rosemary are oils that are used for Middle notes.

Base notes are the oils that are slow to evaporate. So these oils might last on your skin for up to a week. What you apply on Sunday of this week may still be lingering during the week to the following Sunday. Bass notes are often soothing and relaxing notes. In this category, you will find Sandalwood, vanilla clove and cedar.
