Happy weekend, Love Scent family! We hope all is well with you.
A few weeks ago, we told you about a new product in the Love Scent catalog: Zellous Essential Oils. If you were intrigued by this new product but didn’t want to purchase the full sampler pack and get several bottles of oils you don’t need, you’ll be happy to know that we now offer the individual oils at only $4.99 a bottle. Choose from Lavender, Peppermint, Tea tree, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, and Sweet Orange. Get only what you want, and leave the rest for someone else!
Now, if you’ve been a member of the Love Scent family for very long, you know that we’re fascinated by the power of scent. We’ve talked before about the complementary powers of scent and pheromones.
In summary: scent is one of the most powerful triggers of memory and emotion that psychologists and neuroscientists are aware of. When you smell something, the sensory information passes through parts of your brain that are central to emotions and memories. That’s why smelling something from your childhood can take you back in time, or why catching a whiff of a scent that you associate with a strong memory (like roses from that date you can’t forget) can bring up all kinds of emotions. What’s more, the centuries-old art of aromatherapy has taught us that certain scents can have strong effects on us even if we have never smelled them before.
As you know, pheromones can have similar effects on the body. When you smell pheromones, either on yourself or someone else, you have a strong emotional and physical response. Depending on the pheromone, that response could be arousal, it could be relaxation, it could be attraction…it could be a lot of things. Knowing what each pheromone’s effect will be, and knowing how to use pheromones appropriately in different social or romantic situations, are the fundamentals of good pheromone use.
If you’ve been using pheromones for very long, you also know that pairing them with the right scent is crucial. A pheromone blend that would work wonderfully for your purposes can have its effects seriously dampened by the wrong scent. On the other hand, pairing a strong blend with the perfect scent strengthens its effects.
So how do you go about pairing pheromones with scent? We definitely have some advice, so read on.
Option 1: Go With What Works
Does your partner love a particular scent? Maybe you have a special perfume or cologne that they love, or they especially like the smell of peppermint? Well, no need to fix something that already works. Make sure to pair your pheromone blend with the scent you know your partner loves, be it a natural essential oil or something else.
Option 2: Pair Pheromones With Complementary Scents
This is where the Zellous Essential Oils can come in very handy. Aromatherapists have been studying the emotional and physical impacts of essential oils since before we even knew pheromones were a thing. Take advantage of their centuries’ worth of knowledge by looking into different essential oils, including those we offer right here at Love Scent, and how their effects can amplify the effects of the pheromones.
- Alpha 7 Unscented and Peppermint: Alpha-7 is a strong, invigorating formula designed to give you a boost of confidence and authority, and peppermint oil has long been valued for its ability to improve stimulation and alertness. Pair them together and allow their complementary strengths to feed off each other.
- Liquid Trust and Lavender: Liquid Trust is one of our most popular products, and is designed to promote relaxation, tranquility, and, of course, trust. Lavender oil has been used for decades upon decades for similar effects, and is used in aromatherapy to relieve anxiety and stress. A blend of these two can help you become the soothing, trustworthy presence you want to be.
Option 3: Use Scent As a Counterbalance
This is essentially the opposite of what we discussed above, and also lets you make use of the Zellous Essential Oils. You can counterbalance the effects of a particular pheromone blend by combining it with a scent with opposing characteristics. This is a good option if you’re using a particularly strong pheromone that can sometimes be too strong for certain people, or if a particular formula needs just one extra quality to be perfect.
- Alpha 7 Unscented and Sweet Orange: Alpha-7 Unscented is very concentrated and highly stimulating. By pairing this strong product with the soothing, familiar scent of sweet orange, you can make sure potential partners aren’t overwhelmed by the pheromones.
- Super Primal for Him and Eucalyptus: Super Primal for Him contains AndrosteNOL–an important “icebreaker” pheromone that acts as a social lubricant but doesn’t have the same invigorating effects as some of our more potently sexual pheromones. When paired with eucalyptus, a stimulating oil with a woodsy scent, Super Primal for Him can take on qualities it doesn’t already have and help you sail through social situations with extra confidence.
There you have it. There are plenty of ways scent and pheromones can work with each other, and each offers plenty of room to experiment. And, as we all know, experimenting is part of the fun!
One final note: if you are going to use essential oils as pairings for our pheromone blends, please keep safety in mind. You should never put undiluted essential oils right on your skin, as doing so can cause a bad reaction similar to an allergic reaction that will come back every time you have contact with that oil (or even the plant it comes from) again. Always mix them, in appropriate proportions, with a carrier oil before application. We want you to be safe and happy! Read up on the use of essential oils in perfumes before getting started.
