Holiday Sex

What's a better present for your loved one than the gift of sex?  Especially if you dole it out sparingly througout the year.  Although this blog is a bit cynical about the role of sex, it can add wonders to your relationship and also cooperation (think designer handbag for christmas).

Lack of desire can be due to many reasons - stress, hormones, a new baby, boredom with your partner and not wanting to change the sheets.  Sometimes though it is due to being tired and lacking in the mood.  You can change the mood with essential oils.  Some oils are very sexy and relaxing indeed. 

Try diffusing a combination of pure sandalwood and rose, or if you  don't have that try sandalwood and lemon or jasmin and orange.   Lemon is uplifting, Jasmin is an aphrodisiac and sandalwood is relaxing.  Lower the lights and viola, a setting out of Arabian nights.

Have fun

The Scent of the Holidays

The holiday season officially kicks off tomorrow evening with Thanksgiving Eve and continues in New Years.  For some people it is a really difficult time.  No matter where you are in the US you can feel those holidays. 

Its generally silient on the streets - even Manhattan on Thursday, Thanksgiving afternoons as people run hither and yon with their sweet potatoe pies.  If you are alone or stressed out, Thanksgiving can be the longest day of the year.

Even if you aren't alone and you are planning to get together with family, these gatherings can be difficult.  The Father-in-law who thinks he's fat.  The stupid cousin, the silly aunt and the burnt turkey. Every hour can seem like a year. 

A great option is the essential oil of black spruce. Try buying everyone an Omstone available from http://www.omstonearomas.com/  These gorgeous hand made stones absorb essential oils for days.  One drop and you are good to go and they make stunning gifts.  It comes with a small vial of oil -- request black spruce.  Its refreshing, green, uplifting and calming without being piney.  Black spruce blends well with lemon for a truly uplifting experience.

If you are spending Thanksgiving by yourself, rose geranium for comfort is a nice choice of oil to diffuse or to dab onto your omstone.   If you are around people who have a negative vibe, block it out with a rich, spicey, somewhat suggestive scent of frankincense.  If you have faux tree, you can add a few drops of black spruce, spruce or cedar for an aromatic tree.  Happy holidays.

Aromatic advice for Kim Kardashian

Aromaram generally focuses on topical and relevent issues, however, much to the blog's amusement Kim's marriage bash has surpassed her wedding What a twist to the marriage that was described by the press as royalty.  Was the split truly unexpected?  Of course, we can always ask mama Kris who claims she could have saved Nicole Simpson.  Oh yeah?  why couldn't she save her own daughter?  Guess mama Kris knows disaster brings in the dollars.

Well just in case Kimmy is crying her eyes out in Australia, we have some aromatic advice for her...  Rose, Lavender and Sweet Orange.  Rose of course, to mend a broken heart and heal disappointment.  Especially since she may have to return that two million dollar ring.  Lavender to relax miss Kim and help her sleep as she promotes hand bags in Australia, and sweet orange, because it is sunny and bright like her native Los Angeles and will keep her smiling through out the drama of her televised divorce.  Will Kris Humphries be featured?  Don't know if there are any oils for suckers but he could try sandalwood to stay cool calm and collected.  He'll need it.
