Oxytocin is a mammalian hormone which plays an important role in intimacy, childbirth and sexual reproduction. In both humans and other mammals, this molecule is the crucial hormone affecting maternal bonding, orgasm, sexual bonding and anxiety. Oxytocin is made in the hypothalamus of the brain, and it is transported to the pituitary gland where it is secreted.
Oxytocin is the “bonding hormone” and thus symbolizes human love, empathy and social interaction.
When we hug or kiss or touch one another, our oxytocin levels rise!
Sexual arousal, bonding, maternal behavior, trust, fear, empathy and generosity are all involved with oxytocin.
Wear this pendant and show your LOVE!
