Why I Make Love Oil

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Yesterday, I posted this status on Facebook:  “For many years I have resisted selling my products in my writing, believing that it would somehow confuse the message and reduce the education about love to advertising. I am ending my silence today.

The chemical compounds that make up essential oils actually change your brain chemistry (and that of your partner) while you are using them. It creates a kind of scent bridge, that is unique to the two of you.
