“Slipped, tripped and fell in love”, sings the beautiful Ann Peebles on her 1971 hit. You can listen to Ann’s soulful voice here.
But this isn’t really about Ann Peebles. It’s about love. Everyone wants to know about love potions, essential oils for love and how to get someone’s attention with scent.
Essential oil blending can be a fun way to experiment with natural perfumes and put you in the driver’s seat of your life. So does a love potion really work? Sure, of course it does but there’s a subtle trick.
The best way to make a love potion work is to create it for yourself. Have you heard of the exercise to write down all the qualities of what you want in a partner? When you’ve made your list, your job now, is to embody those qualities, to attract someone of the same vibration. What I’m saying is contrary to what you’d expect a spell to do. When you make a spell or practice other magic like that, you are engaging intention and alchemy to manipulate others. When making an aromatherapy love potion, even if it is your intention to attract another, the energy of the potion will be different. When you create it for yourself, you empower yourself, you don’t disempower someone else. You are supporting and nurturing your self, and sending your intention out into the ether with a positive spin.
Essential oils are carriers of the truth, they cannot lie. When you mix the essence of yourself with the essence of a flower or plant you will concoct a synergistic formula based in love and truth. Wait and see what happens.
Here are a some recipes to invite love and passion into your life:
1) “Law of Attraction”
To attract a life partner try a body oil blend using 3 teaspoons of carrier oil. Then add
Sandalwood 2 drops
Rosewood 2 drops
Orange 3 drops
Coat your body in this luscious formula before you go out to a social event.
To attract a fun, intimate connection with another, try anointing your wrists, heart chakra and throat chakra in a combo of these oils:
Patchouli 1 drop
Jasmine 3 drops (this is assuming your jasmine oil is in a 3% blend with jojoba. If you have pure jasmine just use one drop).
Mandarin 1 drop
Just place each drop into a saucer or little ramekin, stir with your little finger and anoint yourself. MMMMMMMMMM. Delicious!
3) “Barry White is in the House”
If you are having a get together at your house, vapourise these oils in a classic oil burner with a candle:
Bergamot 5 drops
Palmarosa 5 drops
Ylang Ylang 5 drops
Don’t be scared to use any oil, just add your heartfelt intention when you blend, and all will be revealed to you.
Remember to treat yourself first, and everyone else will benefit.
