Scenting your Hair

by Penny Keay

To go along with our Love making theme in this issue I decided to include several ways to scent your hair.

Many people never think about how easy it is and that perfumes or scented oils in the hair will often times last longer than using them on the skin.

Since we have several carrier oils that are good for your hair adding essential oils to them and adding a few drops to your hair brush, comb or even your finger tips can beautifully scent your hair.

With out a doubt Jojoba is known to be very nourishing and helpful to your hair.

Although other fixed oils will work too, the fact that Jojoba is a liquid wax that most resembles your own sebum it works the best. Other fixed oils that work well include Sweet almond, Olive oil and Camellia oil.

Add your favorite essential oil or blend into Jojoba, mix well and apply a few drops to your hair. Simply brush or comb to work the oil and scent through your hair.

Another way to scent your hair is to add essential oils to your shampoo and conditioner. The same scent can help to spark memories of any encounter.

Or you can put your favorite essential oils in some of our Body spray or Spray on -Leave in Hair De-tangler . These are easy to scent and can always be used to refresh your hair scent in the spur of the moment.

For a fresh Fruity and Simple Hair spritzer/scent

Orange – 15 drops
Neroli – 12 drops
Emulsifier – 25 drops Body Spray Base – 2 ounces

Blend the essential oils and Emulsifier in a 2 oz PET plastic spray bottle then add the Body Spray Base. Shake well before spritzing on hair.

Around the House and Garden

Setting the Stage for a night of Romance

by Penny Keay

You are planning a special evening of romance so where do you begin. Let’s give you a few suggestions besides those listed in the first article above.

Straighten the house

– don’t go hog wild cleaning, just pick up the piles of mail and other papers and tuck them away (don’t forget where you hide them). Spritz some air fresheners – use light citrus scents.

Next set the table and arrange some flowers

– use silk flowers and place drops of your favorite romantic oils on them.

Prepare a simple meal

– maybe just some meats, cheeses, crackers and fruit. Tonight – simple is better. (No chocolate or alcohol at this time - see the note below.)

Change the bedding

Spritz some scented linen spray on the sheets and pillow cases – again using the fresh scents of essential oils that you enjoy. Of course Lavenderis always a good choice.

Prepare your massage oil

or a couple different ones if you are not sure which one you might want to use. Place a few towels near your bed to wipe your hands if you need to or want to.

Clean the bathroom

and set up some candles to light later on. Get the tub ready to fill – a few bubbles might be nice. Have a few rose petals if available to float on the top of the water, if you don’t have use bubbles. Lay out the towels and robes.


Actually, you can place candles throughout the house – especially the dining room and bedroom too. Just use common sense and be careful with the open flames.

Set up a diffuser or two also, using some of the scents you have chosen for your evening. Start diffusing them early.

Allow plenty of time to enjoy the evening.

After everything is all over and everyone is exhausted from all the fun, NOW is the time to sit or lay quietly – eat a little bit of chocolate and sip a little wine (or if you don’t drink – enjoy a soda or beverage of your choice) – served in a fancy glass of course!

We hope all these suggestions help. After all it is springtime and all the creatures in nature say – Love is in the air!!
