Cleopatra used the power of aroma to alert her approach and achieve her will.

She would then use essential oils in massage to fragrance her body and make her more desirable…
Now, I can’t see us all rushing out to douse our cars in rose and sandalwood oils to attract the opposite sex’s attention, but what we can do is utilise some traditional uses of essential oils and incorporate them into our present lives to put the electricity back in our relationships.
Sandalwood is a very relaxing oil, soothes nervous tension and anxiety and is more sedative than uplifting. Its aphrodisiac qualities can relieve sexual problems such as frigidity and impotence, perhaps dealing with the underlying anxiety. Its antispasmodic and tonic action on the body can encourage relaxation and a feeling of well being.
Sandalwood is also helpful with chest infections, sore throats and dry coughs which accompany bronchitis and lung infections. It is very relaxing and aids sleep when catarrhal conditions are present.
Sandalwood helps to stimulate the immune system and keep infection at bay.
As Above, So Below…
