Fun FridayCan you think of a certain fragrance that makes you feel sexy?
The soft glow from lit bedroom candles may yield more than just ambient lighting. Certain fragrances can turn you on according to some philosophies. From personal experience, I think they may be on to something.....
The olfactory bulb in our nose, from which we pick up scents, has a direct connection with the limbic system. The limbic system is a set of brain structures. Their functions include; emotion, behavior, libido, motivation, long term memory and olfaction (sense of smell). It's claimed that certain scents mimic sexual olfactory signals. Hence, we can light a libido fire with that candle.
Essential oils that are claimed to increase libido are:
A Vanilla and Cinnamon blend is said to mimic a pheromone-like fragrance to enhance libido
Lavender is a calming fragrance and can help libido by decreasing stress.
AVOID CHERRY...according to Dr. Alan Hirsch, M.D. director of the Smell and Taste Research Foundation in Chicago, the scent of cherry can inhibit sexual arousal.
High end candle stores have listings of the oil combinations in their candles. You can have the clerks search the lists for candles that contain some of these fragrances.
AND in the cyclical universe that the Lord wondrously made, if you want to increase your smell-ability, have more SEX! Orgasm releases the hormone prostaglandin which stimulates the olfactory bulb.
Song of Solomon 1:3, "Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you!" (What a beautiful thought, that the young ruler's name was received like a pleasant fragrance that wafts through the air, because his reputation was so good.)
1. Discount stores (T.J. Maxx, Big Lots, Marshalls, etc.) in my area carry high end candles, yours may, too.
2. Yankee Candle has printable online coupons.
3. Light up a candle in your living area early in the day to warm up for the evenings sexcapades.
My prayer for you, beautiful ladyfish...
"May this beautiful reader be blessed with abundant knowledge of your love, dear Lord. In your love for your children, you desire good things for our lives. Help this woman connect with her husband and find a deep desire for him sexually. May our marriages be firmly stationed upon you, Lord. Through our marriages and families, may we shine as your light into the world. May those who know us feel our love and ask us why we are different. In Jesus precious name, Amen."
