Essential Oils for Spicing Things Up in the Bedroom

There are a number of Essential Oils that have a stimulating affect on our sex drive.  These can be used in a candle diffuser, an aromatherapy diffuser, or blended into a massage oil for a special romantic evening that really amps things up. 

Essential Oils That Work as All-Natural Aphrodisiacs

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Soft & feminine, ylang ylang is a gentle oil that lends an air of romanticism & intimacy to your boudoir. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil also has a long history of being used as an aphrodisiac. In Indonesia, it is common to sprinkle Ylang Ylang Essential Oil onto the bed of newlyweds in preparation for their first night as a married couple.  

Sandalwood Essential Oil

Sandalwood is embraced by Buddhists and Hindus as a mechanism for enhanced connections with the divine world & with those close to you.  Sandalwood Essential Oil has a more masculine scent than other Essential Oil aphrodisiacs, & its musky scent mimics our own human pheromones which makes it very effective when it comes to amping up intimate moments. 

Vanilla Absolute

Vanilla is an indulgently sweet scent attractive to both men & women.  Vanilla has a long history in aromatherapy as a powerful aphrodisiac, & helps our body achieve a sense of balance & ease. Adding a Vanilla Absolute to a warm, romantic massage oil is a great jump start any romantic encounter.

Ginger Essential Oils

This spicy scent is a very warm oil that helps round out an Aphrodisiac blend. The slight warming effect is great for dilution into a massage oil & can really help spice things up in the bedroom.
