If you often crave Vanilla flavor, it may not just be for the sweet end of it (icecream, cake, childhood nostalgia, etc). It could be that your mind and your soul finds Vanilla soothing, harmonizing, uplifting or inspiring. Vanilla does that to people! It also makes people feel safe, secure and helps tap into personal mojo (or Kefi in Greek)- that ineffable zest, spontaneous enthusiasm and passion. Vanilla aroma is fascinating in this sense, because it will help you in the ways that you need it, whether easing depression, creating an emotional sanctuary, kick-starting inspiration or with a lover as an aprhodisiac, Vanilla will act in whatever way if right for you, at a given time. Awesome, huh? Yep, we think so, too. It's like magic!
