There is nothing more magical than an amazing scent. It can literally transform your mood, boost your energy, and speed up healing.
It can also getcha’ goin’ in the love department (if you get my drift)…because, it’s almost Valentine’s Day guys and even if you’re a parent and way too exhausted to kick it old school (you know, the way it used to be after a bottle of wine and before kids), you can enjoy some quiet time alone relieving stress and connecting by smelling things.

4 Romantical Benefits of Aromatherapy
Orange Peel Box recently sent me an amazingly delicious smelling box to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the hubs and it got me thinking about the benefits of aromatherapy in my relationships (all of them). I’ve used them for different things over the years…stress relief, pain relief and for creating a feel-good space when I’m overwhelmed. But, I never really dug into the many benefits aromatherapy could have on my love life. Boom. Here they are.
My Orange Peel Box included this Wild Puppy Rose & Geranium Body Spray. Geranium oil can uplift your mood, reduce fatigue and promote emotional wellness (p.s. I’m no expert, but google told me so). You can spritz this on your face to bring the happies or spray it all over your house because…toddler.
Since essential oils release chemicals to your brain, they can literally create (or enhance) chemistry between you and your partner.
This Love Plant Life Essentials blend fills the space with warmth and the feeling of closeness…which then makes clothes fall off. Just sayin’.
Life is stressful. And, if you’re a parent it’s overwhelming sometimes. Essential oils can actually combat the physical symptoms of stress. It’s crazy that a little oil can literally calm an upset stomach or heal a migraine. And, nobody wants to bow-chicka-bow-wow with a headache.
This JEMS Gifts Boutique Lavender Spice Sachet is a must have for your lingerie drawer (wait, I’m I supposed to have one of those?). Well, anyway, you can pair it with this Ylang Ylang Body Oil so that your skin smells as lovely as your lacies. Oh, and, also Ylang Ylang is said to be an aphrodesiac…so there’s that.
A candle can transform a space and create connection (how many times has someone come into your house and asked why it smells so amazing?) This Mint & Rose Quartz Wellness Candle by Bee Lucia provides a unique combination of refreshing mint and the compassionate energy of rose quartz (which) complement each other to create space for purifying and opening the heart, increasing focus and healing capacity. I think I might break up with the husby and make this candle my new Valentine. Its even more glorious in person than in this pic.
