These peaceful scents of ylang ylang, jasmine, and vetiver are inspired by St. Dymphna. She is the patron saint of those striving for purity as well as those suffering nervous and mental afflictions, and her prayers are frequently invoked by psychologists, psychiatrists, and family and friends of those with these afflictions. Her feast day is May 15.

Behind the Inspiration

The aroma of each of these scents is commonly used to soothe anxiety, stress, and depression. St. Dymphna, virgin and martyr, is the patron saint of those who suffer such afflictions because her father suffered from mental illness after the death of his wife, Dymphna's mother. 

O God, since Thou didst give St. Dymphna to Thy Church as a model of all virtues, especially holy purity, and willed that she shouldst seal her faith with her innocent blood and perform numerous miracles, grant that we who honor her as patroness of those afflicted with nervous and mental illness, may continue to enjoy her powerful intercession and protection and attain eternal life. Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

St. Dymphna, pray for us.
