Flower oils have been used for millennia to heal, nourish, refresh, brighten moods, and increase sexual allure.  The oils we use are legendary for their attractiveness and utility:

“Vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron, because growing the vanilla seed pods is labor-intensive. Despite the expense, vanilla is highly valued for its flavor. As a result, vanilla is widely used in both commercial and domestic baking, perfume manufacture and aromatherapy.”

–Aphrodisiac: from www.askmen.com
“Because of its sweet, welcoming odor, it has a euphoric effect and can be used at will. If consumed, vanilla combats sexual debilitation and improves upon the central nervous system. Its odor implicitly acts upon sexual stimulation in both men and women. So add a few drops of vanilla essence to your bath and set the sensual mood for what’s to come (pun fully intended).”

“Frankincense has been traded on the Arabian Peninsula and in North Africa for more than 5000 years.  A mural depicting sacks of frankincense traded from the Land of Punt adorns the walls of the temple of ancient Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, who died circa 1458 BC.

“Frankincense was one of the consecrated incenses (HaKetoret) described in the Hebrew Bible and Talmud used in Ketoret ceremonies.  The frankincense of the Jews, as well as of the Greeks and Romans, is also called Olibanum (from the Hebrew חלבנה). Old Testament references report it in trade from Sheba (Isaiah 60:6 ; Jeremiah 6:20). Frankincense is mentioned in the Song of Solomon (Song of Solomon 4:14).”

“Myrrh /ˈmɜːr/ from the Hebrew ‘”מור”‘ (“mor”) and Arabic مر (mur) is the aromatic resin of a number of small, thorny tree species of the genus Commiphora, which is an essential oil termed an oleoresin. Myrrh resin is a natural gum. It has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense and medicine. It can also be ingested by mixing it with wine.”

“Myrrh is mentioned in the Old Testament numerous times as a rare perfume with intoxicating qualities, such as Genesis 37:25 and Exodus 30:23.

“Myrrh is also found in the Christian Bible as one of the three gifts the wise men presented to the Christ Child, according to the gospel of Matthew. According to the gospel of Mark, Jesus was offered wine and myrrh before the crucifixion.”

“For many people, a whiff of patchouli oil brings to mind the hippie movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s.   But beyond this oil’s unique aroma that’s associated with the ‘flower children’ is a wealth of benefits that can soothe and heal you inside out.”

“Patchouli oil has long been used in traditional Asian medicine, especially in Malaysia, China, and Japan. It is used to treat skin and hair problems, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne, dry chapped skin, dandruff, and oily scalp. It also has wound healing and scar reducing properties, as well as aphrodisiac effects. The link to sexual desire likely originated from India, where it is used in Tantric sexual practices.”
