Posts Tagged ‘essential oils for libido’

Jan 30 2013 set the stage for romance

Yes, the season of romance is here and most of us are looking for ways to make it special for our dear ones. Is it any coincidence that February is officially named the ‘American Heart Month’?

The second month of the year also brings our focus to the “emotional health” of the heart as well as our relationship with our loved ones and ourselves. The “heart” is home to the most complex emotions – both positive and negative.   A person who does not love himself enough can never have any love to give others, and a heart filled with jealousy, envy, rage and revenge can never forge a positive trusting bond. Therefore, the two secret ingredients for fulfilling romantic relationships are purity of the heart and self-love.

Nature has gifted us with essential oils for romance and sexuality that help in this journey towards self-realization and set the stage for enriching and satisfying relationships by:

  •  Cleansing the heart of “dark” emotions and encouraging “light” emotions like compassion, forgiveness and transformation.

  • Enhancing our sensuality and confidence, which makes us more desirable to the opposite sex.

  • Helping us sort out our emotions issues to reduce conflicts, resentment and bitterness in relationships.

  • Enhancing our libido and sexuality, thus encouraging physical intimacy between partners.

Let us now look at the three categories of essential oils that will help rekindle the love in your life and bring out the sensual romantic in you.

Aromatherapy for romance: Bright and happy citrus scents to cleanse your heart  

Whenever I think of dirt (physical or emotional), the first thing that comes to my mind is the cleansing properties of citrus essential oils. Even commercial cleaning products contain extracts of citrus, don’t they?

  • Lemon: Like a ray of sunshine, lemon essential oil brightens up your life and washes away all impurities and negative feelings.

  • Sweet Orange: The scent of Sweet Orange is warming, comforting and “fodder for the heart”. It encourages you take things in good humor and absolves emotional confusion.

  • Grapefruit: The refreshing properties of Grapefruit instill positivity, joy and cheer, which are essential components of a healthy relationship.

Aromatherapy for sexuality: Beautiful and fragrant flowers for confidence and sensuality

Without confidence, sensuality is lost – no matter what you wear, how much you weigh or how your hair looks. A myriad of factors such as depression, anxiety, societal pressures or even a break-up can affect the way we feel about ourselves. Floral essential oils soothe our hearts and allow us to celebrate our unique beauty.

  • Clary Sage: Profound and seductive, Clary Sage negates melancholy and stimulates sexuality.

  • Ylang Ylang: A sweet aroma that soothes away bitterness, Ylang Ylang enhances libido and dispels feelings of jealousy and envy. Its exotic scent helps reunite our emotional and sensual natures.

  • Jasmine: Jasmine’s intense and seductive aroma is the perfect antidote for   performance anxiety, impotence and frigidity that result from depressive thoughts of inadequacy and undesirability.

  • Rose: The luxurious and erotic scent of rose fuels passion and self-assurance. It helps you discover and revel in your own sensuality.

  • Lavender:  With the healing qualities of Mother Nature, Lavender washes away emotional conflict and fills you with newfound confidence.

  • Helichrysum:  Calming and uplifting, Helichrysum instills courage and heals deep-seated emotional wounds.

Aromatherapy for libido: Spicy and powerful scents to fire up your desire

Want to know how to enhance sexuality with essential oils for massage and libido? There is no specific category for aphrodisiac essential oils, but those derived from spices are very helpful as they have strong, powerful aromas that fuel passion and make you realize how sexy you are!

  • Cardamom: This spicy scent encourages clarity of thought and warms even the coldest hearts.

  • Black Pepper: A tonic for stamina and strength, Black Pepper stimulates your mind and body, and urges you to take initiative in relationships.

  • Ginger: Arousing and inviting, the warm scent of ginger stimulates your appetite for love.

  • Patchouli: Patchouli has a voluptuous and suggestive aroma that delves deep into your emotions and instills a sense of freedom.

  • Vetiver: This earthy and positive scent helps shed inhibitions, self-consciousness and fears of intimacy.  Its sexually arousing and profound nature makes you bold and fearless in love.

How to use essential oils for romance and sexuality?

  • Choose one essential oil from each category and blend 10 drops of each in 1 Oz bottle of carrier oil to create your own Romantic Body Oil. Use this to massage your erogenous zones.

  • If you have a partner, give each other a sensual, loving massage.

  • Put 3 drops of each oil in an aromatherapy burner to create a sexy ambiance.

We love Valentine’s Day so much; we celebrate it for an entire month. What are you doing this February? Tell us how you have used aromatherapy for romance – we’d love to know!

Throughout history, fragrances have always been an inseparable element in love and romance. Whether it is Cleopatra dousing herself and her surroundings in rose essence to seduce Mark Antony or eastern maharajahs sniffing on a bunch of jasmine as watch their courtesans dance, fragrances have had a large part to play in igniting passions and sensuality.

The use of essential oils in lovemaking is nothing new, but today, we know that it is much more than a tradition.  Scientific research carried out by neurologist Alan Hirsch at the Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation in Chicago has proven that certain scents are shown to have a powerful effect on our olfactory lobe, which is a part of the limbic system that houses sexual desires. Different scents seemed to produce varied levels of arousal in men and women, with Lavender and pumpkin pie ranking the highest! Even skeptics will agree that a nice smelling environment is conductive to romance and lovemaking – the scent of essential oils in a diffuser can elevate the mood and set you up for a passionate interlude.

Physical and emotional factors such as vaginal dryness, poor body image, stress and past traumas can be detrimental to sexual desire and confidence. Essential oils work in myriad ways to heal the body and mind. They balance out the chakras (energy centers) and stimulate the sacral chakra, which is located at the pubic bone.

The following essential oils are known to enhance sexuality and they work equally well for men and women:

Jasmine, with its sharp and sensual scent, has been used by generations of Indian women to entice their partners.

Ginger has a warm and hearty aroma that recreates a cozy atmosphere for a couple and makes lovemaking last longer.

Cardamom fills up the senses with its spicy and intoxicating fragrance and is a definite turn-on.

Ylang Ylang is strewn on the beds of newly married South-Asian couples on their wedding night – need we say more?

Grapefruit refreshes and energizes the senses, especially if you have been feeling down and low.

Cedarwood, with is woody aroma, is reassuring and infuses warmth into the atmosphere.

Clary Sage acts as a tonic for the female reproduction system and boosts sexual confidence.

Rose is almost synonymous with love and romance. Its fresh, floral scent is a powerful aphrodisiac.

You may use these oils in numerous ways to spice up your love life:

1.    Pour a few drops into your bath water and let the aromas penetrate deep into your senses.
2.    Add a few drops of essential oils to carrier oil and use it an intimate and erotic massage with your partner.
3.    Light unscented candles all over your room to set the mood for romance. Candles also add warmth to your surroundings.
4.    Sprinkle a few drops on your bed sheet and pillow cover so that the scents stay with you all through those special moments.
5.    Use these oils in a burner at home to make every corner inviting and enticing.
