Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary is aptly associated with the goddess of love Aphrodite/Venus and she is commonly portrayed donning a sprig of the herb. The essential oil is known to enhance mental alertness and capacity and has powers to increase blood circulation. This is due to psychotropic substances present which act as stimulants and subsequent aphrodisiacs. Rosemary essential oil, if used during a bath, improves circulation and sensitivity to touch. It also has astringent properties, due to which it has a cooling effect on the skin. When diffused, it emanates a woody, herbal aroma that refreshes and soothes the mind while improving clarity.
