Valentine's Day... Aromantic blends

Thought about all the romantic blends we've published over the years, and went back to a Valentines newsletter from almost a decade ago for the following:

Chrissie Wildwood has some "love potions" for both men and women in her Perfume book.

Erotica: An almost hypnotic blend
2 parts Ylangylang extra
2 parts Tuberose
1 part clary sage
1 part black pepper

A sensual massage for the man in your life:
1 drop Sandalwood
1 drop ylangylang
1 drop Cardamon
added to 2 teaspoons of carrier.

Note...after playing with all of these, and going mmmmmmmmmmm....I reach for a blend of perhaps 10 drops sandalwood, and 3 to 5 drops of your favorite Rose Oil... add a bit to some jojoba and brush it into your hair, add to a bath, make a strong dilution and wear as perfume... or better yet, dilute it down a lot more and give ME a massage with it.......

Will someone please tell my partner that's what I want for St. Valentine's day?

i would like to know more about ways to use oils for emotional needs, as sleep aids, etc. do you have a product that could be used to dispense the scent during travel, while flying, for example, or at an inconvenient place such as church or school? something compact, personal, and maybe reusable? something that would not affect anyone in your vicinity who might be allergic or otherwise offended? thank you.

That's difficult to answer without just blatant advertising. On our website we have information about the uses of various oils for various emotional states, and a small collection of "emotional blends'...designed to ease anxiety, stress, sleeplessness, etc.

We also offer (with the aromatherapy accessories) a really pretty "personal inhaler" looks rather like a lipstick, has a glass bottle that you can fill with salt and add your favorite oil or blend.(Very victorian "smelling salts" but discreet, and attractive.)
