A Scent-a-Day with EdieAnne: Love StoryInnocent pink jasmine and sensual amber embraced by luscious dark chocolate.
The small white flowers of this vinelike evergreen shrub, with their intriguing, complex scent, are intensely fragrant and found in most great perfumes. Jasmine is also known as mistress of the night and moonlight of the grove, because its seductive scent reaches its peak late at night. It has a distinctively rich, warm floral fragrance that is sweetly exotic, with a fruity-tea undertone.
Just the name conjures up all sorts of delightful sexy times. The Jasmine scent is calming, relaxing, sensual and romantic. It helps maintain self-confidence and has sensual and aphrodisiac properties. Often it is part of a perfume mix with other sexy essential oils. Jasmine sedates the nervous system, so it is good for jangled nerves, headaches, insomnia, and depression and for taking the emotional edge off PMS and menopause, although keep in mind its age-old reputation as an aphrodisiac! In addition, past uses of jasmine in Western medicine include as an aid to childbirth, nervous problems, reproductive problems and respiratory disorders. Enjoy the relaxing scent of Love Story and remember to have your loved one sitting next to you. wink wink
