Saint Patrick’s Day began over 1000 years ago as a celebration of the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday is now internationally celebrated, and is known worldwide despite the fact that many do not know the origins of its practice. For example, Saint Patrick used the lucky three-leaf clover, or shamrock, as an analogy to explain the holy trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Now as then, the shamrock is considered lucky, but people do not always know its link to St. Patrick’s Day.
However, shamrocks are not the only kinds of plants that are considered lucky. There are countless herbs, spices, fruits and flowers that have been associated with luck, many of which can be found in our products. Because our aromatherapy oils are made with all natural essential oils and high-grade perfumes, we like think they retain that luck.
If you follow our social media accounts, you’ve already learned about nutmeg, peonies, vanilla, roses, cinnamon, orange, lavender, and lemongrass—but it doesn’t end there. Here are three examples of our lucky essences at work.
Eucalyptus has been thought to be able to cleanse the negative energy of a room and get people back on track to succeed. If you’ve been feeling unlucky, maybe due to a generally intangible negative aura, you might want to try our Spa fragrance—eucalyptus is the main ingredient! There are also notes of mint, which is known to bring money and prosperity. Sounds pretty good, right?
If you’re out of luck in the love department, Cardamom may help. Cardamom is “a love herb” and can work some magic in the realm of romance. Cardamom is one of the ingredients in our newest fragrance, Oriental Dream. Oriental Dream also has notes of vetiver and sandalwood, both of which have lucky properties. Vetiver is a protective plant while sandalwood, in addition to having protective properties too, has healing and clairvoyant ones! Three birds one stone, anyone?
Then there is Hope—made with lime and ginger, two lucky complements. Both lime and ginger relate to love. While the former is used to instill faithfulness, the latter rouses passion. Whether you’re in a budding romance or have been married for sixty years, Hope certainly could do no harm. If you ask us, we’d say those ingredients could be the basis of a worthwhile relationship. What do you have to lose?
Whether or not you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and whether or not your believe shamrocks or any other plants can bring you luck, we know that no matter which one of our luxury home fragrances you choose, you will feel fortunate to have it in your home.
