Cynthe’s Natural Perfume #3
FEBRUARY 2007 ~ PARADIS™ was created in a Certification in Clinical Aromatherapy workshop I was participating in, studying for my CCA degree, coordinating in our locale. We were learning to create custom blends to address specific health issues for fellow students.
An important key to creating a wonderful blend is that it must smell NICE to the person you’re creating it for! I tend towards exuberance and enthusiasm, reflected in this blend of 8 essential oils. Six of the eight precious aromatic botanical essences are perfumery divas (generally only 1-2 ‘divas’ would be featured in an individual blend). Later in the same workshop, the aromatherapy students were advised to blend only 3-4 aromatics at a time…
Happily, PARADIS™ is delightful! Beginners’ luck, perhaps? Or pure inspiration from the fragrance angels…
The health issues PARADIS™ was designed to aid are:
1) EMOTIONAL BALANCE: The aromas blended in Paradis™ are encouraging, uplifting, restoring, boost confidence, diffuse anger, and enhance spiritual feelings.
2) STRESS, HEART & CARDIOVASCULAR SUPPORT: The essential oils in Paradis™ are relaxing and anti-inflammatory, several ingredients help regulate heart rhythm (and may be used for palpitations & tachycardia), as well as strengthening overall well-being.
3) Other ingredients assist with BLOOD SUGAR BALANCE, making Paradis™ a lovely perfume for those dealing with hypoglycemia or diabetes. And it’s supportive for the digestive system.
BERGAMOT, one of the citrus elements, “is used in perfumery for its ability to combine with an array of scents to form a bouquet of aromas which complement each other. Bergamot was a component of the original Eau de Cologne developed by Italian perfumers in 17th century Germany. Approximately one third of all men’s and about half of women’s perfumes contain bergamot essential oil.”
BERGAMOT has versatile therapeutic aromatherapy benefits
For EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING ~ Bergamot may be used to treat depression. And as a relaxant – it helps reduce stress.
