Fragrant February - Carla's Blend

A classic from our archives - we REposted this in the Valentine's newsletter a decade ago:

Karla's  "It Absolutely Worked For Me, and I Am
      NOT Kidding, Great Sex and Cozy Intimacy"

          Rose Absolute (10% jojoba dilution) 6 drops
          Sandalwood 6 drops
          Black Pepper 4 drops
          Ginger CO2 2 drops
          Ylang Ylang 2 drops

      blend into 2 oz of jojoba oil--or your favorite
      massage oil.

Some other specific suggested blends, with no guarantees at all ;)

One drop Patchouli
Two drops Rose Absolute or your favorite Rose Oil
Three Drops Ylangylang Extra or Complete...   blend this into
an ounce of your favorite carrier, or add to the aromalamp for a
sultry massage or to scent a romantic boudoir.

Elizabeth Millar recommends "Love in the Clouds" for a diffuser
or aromalamp:

2 drops Bergamot
2 drops Jasmine (she doesn't specify which, in this blend I'd
reach for the Grandiflora)
2 drops Rose
2 drops Ylangylang       The Bergamot lightens the 'sultriness' of
the exotic florals in this one.  NICE!

Chrissie Wildwood has some "love potions" for both men and women in
her Perfume book.  The one that Rick is drawn to is:

4  Jasmine Sambac
7   Indonesian Patchouli
4   Ginger                                        yummmmmmm   we'll follow him anywhere ;)

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.......
Hope everyone has a lovely St. Valentine's Day.
