Think of the last time you smelled a nice, tart lemon. If you're like most people, your mouth watered. Perhaps the smell of popcorn makes you think of that salty, buttery taste and darkened movie theaters. There can be no doubt that the effect of smell on your mind, body, and spirit is a powerful one, indeed. Now you can learn to harness that power with the information in The Fragrant Veil by Elisabeth Millar. Using more than two dozen common and easily obtainable scented essential oils, you'll learn how as perfumes, baths, or body oils they can be used to energize or harmonize, tease or relax, open your mind to concentration for study or prepare you for a night of passionate love. If all this book did was describe how to use the individual oils, it would be a valuable addition to your collection. But it does so much more. Also included are dozens of recipes for combined oils which work together to enhance the effects of the individual oils. This is powerful stuff! You'll also learn how to safely add the oils to your baths (hint: less is often more) and the correct proportions to mix with unscented oils or lotions for scented body unguents that can help you to change your life. Once you learn how to mix oils, as well as the powers to harmonize, relax, stimulate, uplift, and arouse, you'll be able to make your own oils for any purpose. You'll also be able to create your own personal perfumes and scents. This can be your signature scent that only you have, a scent to empower you and help you think clearly, or a scent that will arouse you and a partner! The potential is unlimited. All you need to do is get some of these oils, a few vials, and this book. You can be making history tonight!
