3 Fragrant Ways to Transform Your Mood + Boost Your Sex Appeal

Article by Victorine Deych for Mind, Body, Green

Our nose is a brilliant instrument. It tells you exactly how someone will impact you before your other senses can catch up. Ever wonder why we kiss? Well, we’re actually sniffing each other—now that’s primal! The beauty is that we can use this primal recognition to become our most sensual selves. In a world of sensory overload, we have done everything to mask this natural ability in hopes of receiving what we think we desire.

Aroma Healing for Summit at Sea

Aroma Healing for Summit at Sea

Still floating from one of my favorite experiences of the year. Summit at Sea is “an elite event series that gathers an eclectic cross-section of entrepreneurs, musicians, dancers, activists, and other creatives and thought leaders.” (Complex article)

I had the pleasure of sharing my oil blends with community through acupressure workshops, custom aroma palette cleansers during our meals, and scent sampling in the spectacular ashram. Yes, there was an ashram at sea!

I had the honor of being invited to Revitalize 2016, an invite-only conference with some of the most conscious people on the planet in Tucson Arizona, September 16-18. At the event, there were yogis, athletes, actresses, actors, doctors, nutritionists, psychiatrists, entrepreneurs, investors, shamans, ironmen, tantric sex experts, a dude who has jumped out of airplanes over 18,000 times, a co-founder of the world’s largest men’s health organization, Movember, and even Miss USA.

It was the most eclectic group of amazing people that I’ve ever been around. Read More

Aroma at Burning Man

Aroma at Burning Man

Burning Man helped further the evidence of the healing and elevating powers of aroma. This incredible, yet challenging, desert environment filled with a variety of temperatures and conditions made the body crave reprieve. Fortunately, this was abundant in my bespoke aroma creation for the playa. A proprietary combination of elevating and grounding plants, in addition to South-East Asian spices, not only cleared the nasal passages, but also maintained an all around euphoric state. This was exciting and fun to create and even more thrilling to experience with both old and new friends in one of the most remarkable settings one could find.

Q&A With Victorine Deych

It’s not often that you are sitting with one friend in Miami and she tells you that you must meet her other friend (who lives in NYC) immediately. You need to get on the phone like now. Next thing you know, I’m on a group text and the very next day I am on a call chatting with Victorine about pretty much everything lifestyle – beauty (her specialty), food, exercise, and on. She is a wealth of fun, love, and valuable information. Her organic body oils – Victorine Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll are divine. I can’t wait to hear all that she has to share.

Detox the Heart


In my opinion, the heart gets beat up more than any other muscle in the body. On my yearly detox trip to palm desert, I found the courage to venture to Joshua Tree alone. My reward was one of the most beautiful treasures I have ever found: this heart formation rock that I stumbled upon on one of my hikes. In this moment, I knew that the heart needs detoxing too. Self love has been spotlighted tremendously in the media, but what does that really mean? For me, it’s just giving yourself a day like this one to get lost and find what you need most.
