Happy Valentine's Day! Here's a few herbs and goodies that can make your day a little extra special.
Lavender is naturally calming and soothing. Ladies, did you know that the scent of lavender has been used to attract men since ancient times? Women use to put it under their mattress to help with a bit of passion. Lavender is associated with the heart chakra, and will help open your energy to love.
Cinnamon is another one of my favorites. It is said that it excites men. I will have to give this one a try on my significant other. Cinnamon is very helpful in lifting your spirits and promoting an overwhelming sense of positive emotion and love. Try a cup of cinnamon and honey tea.
Ginger is a hot herb all on it's own. This herb will warm your body up. It can be used to help get your partner "in the mood". Ginger makes a wonderful salad dressing.
Rosemary is said to be an aphrodisiac. In ancient times, women would carry rosemary in their bridal bouquets as it is know to assist with love and faithfulness.
Parsley is another wonderful herb to have about on valentine's day. It is said that it can help to increase a woman's desire.
My personal favorite, chocolate. Chocolate boosts serotonin and endorphin levels, relieving pain and boosting your mood. It can help increase your levels of desire.
On Valentine's Day strawberries just go soooooo well with chocolate. Ok every day. This is one of my absolute favorites. The “perfect little red heart”. Part of the Rose family. In ancient Rome, strawberries symbolized the goddess Venus. Strawberries hold the energy of love, and when combined with chocolate, increase the energy of the person consuming them!
So let's refresh. Light some lavender incense. Place cups of cinnamon and honey tea on the table. Follow it up with a ginger salad. For dinner, let's roast up a rosemary chicken with some red parsley and garlic potatoes. For the perfect touch, chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.
Oh! Don't forget the romantic movies! I saw this article the other day from Hallmark that I adored. It tells the most popular movie for each year, so you can check out the year you were born and find out which movie was the top romantic movie of the year. The Hottest Romance Movie The Year You Were Born.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
