The essence absolute of Cocoa possesses the very aroma of a black chocolate bar, and evokes an atmosphere of pleasant relaxation and of physical well-being. In fact, chocolate is a sensual food and its perfume tickles the extreme temptation of “having a chocolate bath”.
The brown colour of cacao’s essence is relaxant and reassuring and will naturally attract the persons who need to pay attention to their primary psycho-physical necessities, that is to the base chakra. Smelling the aroma of cacao awakes in us the same feelings that the eating of chocolate provokes; a sensuous abandonment to the hedonistic pleasures of palate, helping us to taste life us in its moment. In fact, the aroma of cacao is indicated for persons who do not know how to enjoy the pleasures of life because of their exaggerated seriousness and intransigence towards themselves.
Chocolate is well known for stimulating our production of endorphins, who have a tonic, euphoric and antidepressant effect. The perfume of cacao stimulates our endocrine system through our nose and activates the production of endorphins exactly as chocolate does when we eat it. Therefore the perfume of cacao is particularly indicated for persons who are depressed, sad, anorexic, without energy and bitter. It will help also those who have towards food an excessive rigorous or obsessive attitude, those who fear to be intoxicated if they do not follow strictly their alimentary regimen and also those who undergo with hardship a restrictive diet.
Cocoa perfume helps to overcome the sense of guilt common to many compulsive eaters of chocolate, and allows those who have an intolerance to chocolate or who follow a diet to enjoy its psychical benefits without eating it.
