Love is indeed an emotion that can take over your entire body. And this isn’t just love between two people but universal love, the love that is all around us on a daily basis. I would like you to close your eyes for a second and think about the state of love. What do you see, feel, hear, or smell? This week we are going to visit every aspect of love and how you can manifest this state of being into every second of our lives.
Today the focus is on using our sense of smell to shift our way of thinking and lift our love vibration. We are so busy in our lives that we tend to forget to enjoy life (I am guilty of this as well) but in this running here and there and getting whatever it is that we need to get done that day our vibration frequency drops lower and lower. You have to amp up that love frequency so that way you can manifest blessings and opportunities.
A quickest fix for the shift is through our sense of smell. You see scientists have stated that our sense of smell plays a major role in controlling mood, memory, behavior and emotion. Those good old olfactory receptors are directly connected to our limbic system which is said to be the oldest, most primitive part of our brain and just so happens to be where emotions are located. Did you just get that AH-HA!
Here are 4 of my most favorite essential oils that will flip that switch in that old brain and get the love flowing strong!
Rose oil is a fragrance with rich, deep base notes, floral middle tones and a sweet, slightly leafy top note. It has been used for centuries for love. What this oil does is it produces a calming, uplifting feeling. (there is that higher vibration cue – uplifting)
Orange blossom essential oil has an intoxicating, heady aroma with orange floral undertones. This bringer of self-confidence and reliever of anxiety is keep on the first date!! I think this is my go to smell because it reminds me of spring and what is there not to love about spring!
It has a balsamic, woody aroma so is a great choice if you don’t particularly like floral fragrances. This fragrance as been used since ancient times and is used for spiritual applications, as well as, being an aphrodisiac. (wink wink) This smell of the earth instills a deep sense of inner peace.
This is hands down my favorite one to use! Ylang-ylang has a sweet, floral-balsamic aroma which is quite sweet and rich. It comes from a tropical flower and is used a great deal in weddings to help lovers get over any sexual hick-ups they may have.
Now comes the fun part! Application time!! The best massage oil I ever made was a mixture of orange blossom, sandalwood and ylang-ylang. If you want to shift your way of thinking and amp that love frequency get these scents going in your house by any means: Scentsy tarts, boiling some orange peels on the stove or making yourself some sweet love massage oils. And while you are doing that, I will be getting your next “Turn Up The Love” segment going!
