These peaceful scents of ylang ylang, jasmine, and vetiver are inspired by St. Dymphna. She is the patron saint of 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.
St. Dymphna, pray for us.
