What is a “heart softener” and why is it called so?

Years ago, I was giving a class to a group of women in Ecuador. One of the ladies in her 50s was very beautiful in her looks, make up and clothes.  She told us that her husband would ask her why she puts on make-up when she was so ugly anyways.  He would be verbally abusive with her and she needed something to “calm him down”.

I made a blend using Geranium oil, Clary Sage oil , Lavender oil  and Grapefruit oil  and she bought 5 bottles of that blend!

For your information, 5 bottles of 10ml each of a blend means around 1000 drops of oils!

Since essential oils are used in small quantities, I knew that 5 bottles of the blend were going to last her for a while.  And they did. 

Around a year later, I met her at the airport when both of us were traveling from Quito to Miami.  She asked me, “Do you remember me, and my story?”“Yes, I do remember!” I replied.“Well”, she said, “as soon as I came back home I started to put the blend in diffusers all over the house.  Religiously!  In the beginning my husband reacted negatively, rather angry at the smell. He was yelling that something was going on in the house. Nevertheless, I kept ‘perfuming’ the house quietly.”

She told me that it took a few months before her husband began to change his attitude. He became less angry and finally, she showed me her air ticket.  Her husband was waiting for her in Miami – they were going together on their second honeymoon to Europe and then to Israel, which had always been her dream!

Her story inspired me to share the blend with many others who benefited from it. It is called RADIARE.

I’ve told this story for years, several times everywhere. One day a client of mine told me that she had recommended this blend to one of her patients who had an aggressive teenage son. The woman used the oil at home and noticing the positive changes in her son’s behavior, began calling it “the heart softener”.

What makes this blend work?

This blend is made of essential oils that come from flowers (Clary Sage and Lavender) and a leaf essential oil with a very strong flowery scent (Geranium). 

Flowers have a feminine nature; the flowery scents appeal more to women than men. 

A flower is a representation of beauty; we keep flowers in our homes to make them look more beautiful, right? 

An essential oil with a flowery nature will help us appreciate our own beauty as well as that around us.

In the first case, I think the lady lacked self-esteem, since her husband constantly told her she was ugly.  The consistent use of these essential oils allowed her to express how beautiful she was and be more confident.  I suppose her husband could perceive that and therefore started to respect her.

We know that people have both masculine and feminine sides, and flowery scents invoke the feminine side.  In this case, when the husband’s feminine side was stimulated, he became more compassionate.

I feel the same happened with the kid.  The calming, relaxing properties of Clary Sage, Geranium and Lavender must have helped him get in touch with his feminine side and he became a calmer person.

These may be hypotheses, but I know it worked and I know that those who use this blend have conveyed to me how much it helps – especially on days when we do not know why our mood is down, or why we are grumpy for no reason.

How about giving it a try yourself?

Sep 15 2009 Do you feel anxiety when you enter a dentist’s office? If you do, you are not alone. Most people are faced with anxiety and nervousness at the thought of gloved hands and metal instruments prying into their mouths; this is especially true for children. Is there an easy way to combat dental phobia? Luckily for us, there is. What’s more, it’s as simple as a sniff! A study presented by the British Psychology Society suggests that inhaling the scent of lavender essential oil can help calm any feelings of anxiety and stress in patients before they make it to the dreaded chair. In the study, patients who were made to sniff lavender essential oil before entering the clinic showed a marked decline in stress levels and anxiety as compared to those who hadn’t. Modern dentists are quick to catch up on the convenience of this method and are increasingly using essential oils in their offices to help their patients stay calm and positive. Not only Lavender, other essential oils too can be used to serve different purposes in a dental setting. A prestigious dentist in Atlanta, a loyal client of Aromandina, has taken the use of aromatherapy to another level by using essential oils at her dental practice:
  • SLEEP TIME ESSENTIAL OIL, a blend of Lavender, Mandarin, Marjoram and Palo Santo to help patients stay calm, relaxed and stress-free during treatments.
  • ALEGRIA ESSENTIAL OIL, containing euphoric ingredients such as Clary Sage, Litsea Cubeba, Ylang Ylang to keep people in the waiting room feeling upbeat, positive and happy.
  • ENERGIA ESSENTIAL OIL, with elements of Pine, Rosemary, and Litsea Cubeba to help doctors and the staff stay energized, focused and active.
When patients walk into the clinic relaxed and with a positive mindset, they naturally benefit more from the treatment. It also facilitates the communication between the doctor and the patient so they can understand each other better. Thus, essential oils can help dental practitioners and patients in more ways than one. With essential oils to back you up, a visit to the dentist will never be the same again! photo by nickjohnson
