Our souls crave intimacy. —Erwin Raphael McManus
Essential Oils for Everyday Living: Libido Support –
Valentine’s Day is over but that doesn’t mean you have to cool things off in the bedroom!
Adding essential oils to your sexual experience cannot only heighten pleasure but it may also support deepening the connection between you and your partner.
Between 25% to 58% of women have some sort of sexual dysfunction.
Studies have also shown the percentage of men with sexual dysfunction is on the rise too. Now, throw in jobs, kids and stress and many couples have a hard time making time for each other let alone making time to Make Love. If couples are lucky enough to get lucky their experience can be rushed, lack connection and be unfulfilling. Having regular sex also improves our overall health too. So, what are you waiting for?
Below, I share several essential oils that offer libido support and may even help you knock down the hurdles that are keeping you from having mind-blowing sex.
Here Are 11 Essential Oils for Libido Support:
(Note: All these oils can stand alone, but I highly recommend combining a few to create an orgasmic encounter)
Rose Essential Oil –
AKA “The Love Oil.” It stirs desire, enhances self-esteem and confidence. It has been used as an aphrodisiac for centuries. Leave your inhibitions at the door with a strong anxiolytic effect, as it helps couples be less inhibited in the bedroom.
Sandalwood Essential Oil –
Promotes emotional openness and increases physical sensuality while helping couples get out of their lovemaking slump.
Rosewood Essential Oil –
Lifts sexual energy in the bedroom.
Patchouli Essential Oil –
Another great oil to ignite things in the bedroom.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil –
Supports deeper sexual connections by stimulating the senses.
Clary Sage Essential Oil –
Supports hormones to combat low sex drive.
Jasmine Essential Oil –
The floral scent of this oil has shown to increase arousal, skin temp and even breathing rate to take your lovemaking to the next level.
Bergamot Essential Oil –
Is stimulating and “opening” it helps energy flow and self-acceptance.
Black Pepper Essential Oil –
Warm, spicy enhancing energy, and libido.
Goldenrod Essential Oil –
I think the name says it ALL.
Cypress Essential Oil –
Its stimulating properties increase blood flow is why it’s a favorite in our household. Talk about a grand finale!
Being intimate does not always have to include a lovemaking session either.
Sometimes the best gift you can give your partner is a sensual massage and some quiet. But I do suggest letting the essential oils lead the way you never know where they may take you!
