You're no shrinking violet. You're assertive, competent and confident. But are you a bold red rose emitting the seductive scent of attraction, or are you a sweet juicy orange that begs to be picked? Roses and Oranges represent two different types of personalities. Roses are temptresses and thornier. Oranges are sweeter and softer.
Due to their tiny molecular structure essential oils reach deep into the brain's ancient limbic system that controls our emotions, sexual response and even our hormones. Essential oils can help influence not only the way we feel but the way we think. Take the quiz below and find out if you need a bit of bold rose or the sweetness of an orange.
1. Your skin is dry Yes No
2. You have a heart of gold but a thorny exterior making it hard to approach you. Yes No
3. You are generally happy Yes No
4. You can't focus as well as you would like Yes No
5. Your heart has been broken Yes No
If you answered no question 1 and yes to questions 2 and 4, you are a rose personality. You are seductive, smart and remote. Add 5 drops of sweet orange essential oil to and ounce of hazel nut oil and use as an all over body oil or in your bath. It will help lighten your mood, clear your focus and detox some of that negativity. You'll let the sunshine in and watch every fall for your seductive spell.
If you answered yes to questions 1, 3 and 5 then you are an orange personality you need the essential oil of rose (so expensive try rose absolute and if that's too high rose geranium works). Rose will calm heart break, hydrate your skin and give your self-esteem a major boost If you are using rose geranium, just dab it on your wrists and temples like a perfume.
If you answered "no" to all questions you are a rose personality, so add the power of the golden orange. If you answered "yes," seduce yourself with the scent of dusky rose.
If you answered more "no's" than "yes" then you are a rose. If you answered more "yes" than "no" then you are a sweet juicy orange type, tone it down a bit with rose.
The main thing is not to be a shrinking violet. Of course, we have oils of that!
