I can't stress enough how much I love this blend, and what it means to me. It was about a year in the making, almost ten years ago. Since then it's found its way into so many products and is still my favourite and a favourite of so many of our customers / friends.
I chose to call it LOVE STORIES not only because some of the oils are used in romantic blends, but they all are used in aromatherapy to alleviate depression, stress, and/or anxiety. So it's a LOVE STORY we tell ourselves. For those of us who suffer from mental illness, the love story we tell ourself is that we are worthy of finding healing, in whatever form.
What is in it the blend?
Essential oils of:
• pink grapefruit - Extracted from glands located in the peel of the grapefruit, this oil is perfect for mind; body and spirit wellness as it eases anxiousness and feelings of stress. Fresh, tangy, juicy, a delicious fragrance that is instantly cheery and bright.
• neroli - Extracted from the flowers of Bitter Orange trees, neroli EO is perfect as a mood enhancer and alleviating stress. The fragrance is lightly floral with a citrus undertones.
• ylang ylang - The oil from the ylang ylang flower is obtained via a process known as steam distillation. Ylang Ylang oil is one of my all time favourites. The scent is so rich and deep and intoxicating. Known to boost mood, and alleviate anxiety and depression and is also known as an aphrodisiac. How could it NOT go in a Love Stories blend?
• patchouli - In aromatherapy, Patchouli is known to treat anxiety, insomnia and fatigue. Fast Fact: The Patchouli plant belongs to a family of other well-known aromatic plants, including Lavender, Mint, and Sage.
I hope you love this blend as I do.
