Behind the Inspiration
Star-shaped ylang ylang and jasmine flowers have calming and happy scents, and vetiver is a grass with an earthy and grounding scent. These scents are all commonly used in aromatherapy to soothe anxiety, stress, and depression, and help improve one's mood. The pure white jasmine flower is also a traditional symbol of purity.
St. Dymphna, virgin and martyr, 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.
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.
