Did you know that essential oils can enhance a romantic mood? Because people are strongly impacted physically and emotionally by scents, the aromas of some essential oils are great aphrodisiacs. But essential oils can help with more than providing a lovely scent.
Essential Oils for Romance
Much of the following information is from the Modern Essentials Personal Usage Guide section. Keep in mind, however, that if an essential oil is unappealing to you or your spouse, don’t use it. Needless to say, it will distract from rather than enhance your romantic experience.
An aphrodisiac is a substance used to stimulate feelings of love or sexual desire. Many books on aromatherapy tout the aphrodisiac qualities of a number of oils. Perhaps an aphrodisiac to one individual may not be to another. The most important factor is to find an oil that brings balance to the mind and body. A balanced individual is more likely to extend love.
Some oils that are known to be aphrodisiacs include sandalwood, ylang ylang, rose, jasmine, Blend for Women, cinnamon, ginger, and clary sage.
Another oil that may be worth trying because it is a warming oil and may help improve circulation is black pepper. A single drop can help enhance a massage blend. Make sure to always dilute this oil though.
