A couple of months ago I wrote about how I created wedding favors and candles with natural aromatherapy scents, both perfect gifts and accessories for weddings.  Today, I am looking at a few aromatherapy items that you can put together to create the ultimate aromatherapy wedding survival kit for brides!

Aromatic Wedding Bouquets

You might not realize it, but your wedding bouquet could be an aid in helping you get over your wedding day nerves – that is, if you choose the “right” flowers!  Rose is probably the most well known flower of choice for wedding bouquets but traditionally neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara) has been used in bridal bouquets.  Neroli, or orange blossom, possesses the therapeutic properties to calm wedding day jitters.  In addition, the blossoms of neroli were traditionally placed on the marital bed of the newly married couple to both “get them in the mood for love” and calm any nerves!  So, take a few deep breaths of that aromatic wedding bouquet as you walk down the aisle – and then leave your bouquet strategically placed on the bed for the wedding night!

Custom Fragrances for Your Wedding

Just as brides choose a particular color scheme for their wedding, fragrance can also be created as a theme for your wedding.  Choose a fragrance that you really like, makes you feel calm and makes you feel happy.  You can then incorporate this fragrance into your wedding flowers, wedding candles and gifts for your wedding guests – who will associate the scent with your wedding for years to come!  Just make sure you choose natural aromatherapy scents made from essential oils in order to benefit from the full therapeutic properties of the fragrance.  Popular aphrodisiac fragrances for weddings include:

  • neroli
  • rose
  • sandalwood
  • patchouli.

Wedding Day Skincare With Aromatherapy

Skin is often forgotten about when planning your wedding but most brides want a perfect, glowing complexion as they walk down the aisle.  Start preparing for your wedding day early with an aromatherapy skincare regime that will take care of any problem areas that you might have.  If you want advice on which products are right for you, consult a certified aromatherapist who will be happy to give you a personal consultation and make up the appropriate essential oil blends for your wedding day survival kit.  You can also ask your aromatherapist if they can make up a custom aromatherapy perfume for you with a particular scent.

Natural Confetti for Weddings

For a unique and custom touch to your wedding, consider using natural confetti such as dried lavender buds or rose petals instead of paper confetti.  Not only is it kinder to the environment, but you (and your guests) will love the aromatic aroma as it is released into the air!
