The Fragrant Heart - Part II

  1. 1. The Fragrant Heart Part II How Individual Aromas Enhance Closeness Christoph Streicher, Ph.D. Founder Amrita Aromatherapy, Inc.
  2. 2. <ul><li>“ When I am with you, we stay up all night. When you're not here, I can't go to sleep. Praise God for those two insomnias! And the difference between them.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The way you make love is the way God will be with you.” </li></ul><ul><li> Rumi </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>I have a friend who keeps two essential </li></ul><ul><li>oils at her bedside. </li></ul><ul><li>At bedtime, she chooses one over the </li></ul><ul><li>other, depending on how she wants the </li></ul><ul><li>night to go. </li></ul><ul><li>These two are: </li></ul><ul><li>Ylang Ylang and Sweet Marjoram </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Ylang Ylang </li></ul><ul><li>The Flower of Flowers </li></ul><ul><li>The most potent aphrodisiac in aromatherapy, </li></ul><ul><li>Sensual, sweet, voluptuous, joyous. </li></ul><ul><li>Calming, good for high blood pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>Used medicinally as an antidepressant and for </li></ul><ul><li>any kind of sexual dysfunction. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Sweet Marjoram </li></ul><ul><li>Not very pleasant smelling; use it in </li></ul><ul><li>small quantities. </li></ul><ul><li>Use it if you are choosing a good nights </li></ul><ul><li>sleep. A very calming sedative, </li></ul><ul><li>also good for high blood pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on the cause of your high blood </li></ul><ul><li>pressure, use either Ylang Ylang or </li></ul><ul><li>Sweet Marjoram . </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Citrus Essential Oils </li></ul><ul><li>They create a happy atmosphere and are </li></ul><ul><li>slightly UN-aphrodisiac. </li></ul><ul><li>If you don’t want a teenage party to get </li></ul><ul><li>out of hand, diffuse some Sweet Orange oil . </li></ul><ul><li>Bergamot , the finest citrus oil, blends well </li></ul><ul><li>with sensual oils like Jasmine </li></ul><ul><li>and Ylang Ylang . </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Patchouli </li></ul><ul><li>Patchouli is not an aphrodisiac. </li></ul><ul><li>It received that reputation because it was the </li></ul><ul><li>favorite “hippy” oil. </li></ul><ul><li>It disconnects you from traditional values. </li></ul><ul><li>It is for those who want to walk off the beaten </li></ul><ul><li>path, like avant-garde artists. </li></ul><ul><li>It is only an aphrodisiac in the sense that that it </li></ul><ul><li>helps you to do what your mother told you not to </li></ul><ul><li>do. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Sandalwood </li></ul><ul><li>Another oil that many aromatherapy books </li></ul><ul><li>list as an aphrodisiac , Sandalwood helps to </li></ul><ul><li>project your life energy upward from the root </li></ul><ul><li>chakra. This effect is good for you, </li></ul><ul><li>whether you are single or in a relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>Sandalwood does not increase sexual desire. </li></ul><ul><li>However, if your life energy is strong </li></ul><ul><li>and directed upward, others may find you more attractive. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Vetiver </li></ul><ul><li>Disliked by some, loved by others. </li></ul><ul><li>A strong, earthy, root-like scent. </li></ul><ul><li>It relaxes the areas of your first and second </li></ul><ul><li>Chakras and helps you embrace and enjoy your </li></ul><ul><li>earthy, physical nature. </li></ul><ul><li>My observation is that people who like it are </li></ul><ul><li>comfortable with their sexuality. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Most important: Do not take these as </li></ul><ul><li>prescriptions. </li></ul><ul><li>Find out what resonates with your mind-body </li></ul><ul><li>as well as with your partner’s. </li></ul><ul><li>Find out what nurtures your relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>Find out where the oils will take you. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>I have come into my garden, my bride; </li></ul><ul><li>I have gathered my Myrrh with my spice. </li></ul><ul><li> Song of Solomon </li></ul><ul><li>The spice oils, like Cinnamon , </li></ul><ul><li>Cardamom , Ginger and Nutmeg , indeed </li></ul><ul><li>do just that. </li></ul><ul><li>They make love spicier. </li></ul><ul><li>But be careful with them. </li></ul><ul><li>They need to be diluted; otherwise </li></ul><ul><li>they can irritate the skin. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>In particular, Cinnamon helps you get </li></ul><ul><li>your partner into the mood. </li></ul><ul><li>Cardamom adds a quiet inner </li></ul><ul><li>awareness to intimacy. </li></ul><ul><li>Nutmeg is slightly narcotic. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose them according to your taste. </li></ul>
