Oxytocin is the hormone neurotransmitter of social bonding. It is most widely known for its involvement in childbirth and breastfeeding, where it plays important roles in both lactation and bonding. Oxytocin also facilitates relationships of trust and attachment between people and is generally associated with prosocial behaviors, also acting as a mild antidepressant and reducing fear. It is a lovely neurotransmitter all around.
Measures 5cm long and 3cm tall and is made from zinc alloy.
I like the aesthetic very much--simple and precise. The pin clasp is a bit fragile but functional so far.

First, the Orion Constellation necklaces were just what I was hoping for a special event. The pendant looks exactly like on the site, soft silver color with just slight texture. The cords are adjustable. The order came quickly, each necklace came nestled in a gift box, ready to present. Second, the customer care was what we all hope to find and much more. I had a few special requests and she called immediately to make sure I would get what I needed. Very pleased!
