From the Love chapter in my book, I have created bliss the botanical perfume.

” Love is the beauty of the soul.”

Saint Augustine, 4th Century philosopher and theologian

“When I was searching for the meaning of love I found it difficult to come up with a simple explanation. There’s romantic love, sexual love, familial love, the one love of the universe and the love of ourselves.”

Suzanne R Banks    “Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils”


Which oils do you use to inspire love? I’m feel most people would say rose for sure, but what else? In my book I recommend using any oil that appeals to you, and remember to use your intention to invoke your feelings through the oil.

What about love spells and love potions? I have created a gorgeous love potion perfume for you to throw in your handbag and carry everywhere. Break it out whenever you need to change your focus, to love yourself more, when you feel like being in love, and just anytime really.

Love yourself x



“Now a soft kiss – Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss.”

John Keats

The bliss formula combines happiness oils and some of the essential oils I have listed in the love chapter of my book.

All my perfumes are hand-made, organic, vegan, jojoba oil based.

bliss is a spicy, fruit rose with all the thorns and twigs. This rose can never be overshadowed with a base of soft patchouli and the stunning floral note of ylang ylang. Bergamot gives this alluring scent a cool finish, with a little wood creating an inspiring creamy heart.

Fall in love with everything.
