Perceived Weight Loss and Aromatherapy wants guys to THINK you've lost some weight? Try aromatherapy!
Amazing things happen to the brain when whiffs of certain things get to the brain and start hanging out with those brain chemicals. Perceived weight loss, male attraction, feelings of well-being, just to name a few things.

According to Dr. Alan Hirsch MD and his studies, there is a perception of weight loss when men smell certain odors! If a woman wore floral and spice fragrances, it apparently reduced men's perception of her weight by an average of 4.1 pounds! If the guy thought the floral and spice scent was pleasant, he perceived her to be a full 12 pounds less than her actual weight!

Next time you are out on a date with your hubby, boyfriend or new flame in your life, you may want to take advantage of this idea!

Gardenia is a lovely floral fragrance that I've just recently added in a group bath gift collection. Shower in gardenia soap and follow it up with gardenia fragrance balm that is handy to take with you in your purse too!
OR, bathe in a delightful gardenia fragrance emollient bath salt!
