Have you ever thought of bringing essential oils into the bedroom? I know a lot of people do use essential oils in the bedroom to help them sleep but what about for romance. Aside from their fragrance, essential oils can help to set a romantic mood, boost confidence and much more.
Many personal care products for the bedroom, such as personal lubricants and massage oils, contain toxic ingredients (such as parabens, petroleum-based ingredients, phenoyxethanol, glycerin, propylene glycol and chlorhexidine) that can be found in industrial cleaners. Do you want that on your body? Probably not. So here are some narural alternatives that you may want to try.
My first choice of essential oil for the bedroom is Sensation. Made with coriander, ylang ylang, bergamot, jasmine and geranium, Sensation is alluringly fragrant and exotic. It’s very romantic, arousing and helps to amplify a little excitement in the bedroom.
Next is Black Pepper and Peppermint. Black Pepper gives a little heat and Peppermint cools things off. The mixture is exciting when applied to the thighs (3 drops of Black Pepper and 3 drops of Peppermint with 6-8 drops of a carrier oil) will definitely heat things up in the bedroom.
You can also make my own personal lubricant with 1 oz of coconut oil, 5 drops of Sensation, 2 drops of Black Pepper and 2 drops of Peppermint. The floral scent of Sensation helps to create a romantic mood, while Black Pepper and Peppermint provide a warm/cool sensation. It is pretty amazing.
Joy has bergamot, ylang ylang, lemon, coriander, tangerine, jasmine, Roman chamomile and palmarosa. It’s incredibly uplifting and helps to boost my mood. You can wear it as perfume mixed with a little carrier oil. It smells divine when diffused and can really help to set a romantic mood in the bedroom. You can also make my own intimate massage oil with Joy. Simply mix 5-7 drops of Joy with 1 oz. of coconut oil and store in a glass jar. Then you are all ready for a romantic massage.
Ylang Ylang has faintly sweet floral scent similar to gardenia or plumeria. Ylang Ylang was used to cover the beds of newly married couples on their wedding nigh back in the days. It’s probably wouldn’t surprise you to hear that blends like Sensation and Joy, which both help to promote romance, contain Ylang Ylang. Ylang Ylang can also be worn as a perfume, diffuse to set a romantic mood, and apply topically (neat or with a little coconut oil) on your thighs, lower abdomen or VitaFlex points on the feet to inspire some fun in the bedroom. It is great for getting you in the mood – especially when applied neat to the thighs.
Idaho Blue Spruce is an exclusive oil that is distilled directly from Young Living’s St. Maries farm in Idaho. It has a masculine, evergreen pine scent that smells wonderful on men. We like to mix Idaho Blue Spruce (5 drops) with Ylang Ylang (3 drops) in 1 oz of carrier oil to make a wonderful sensual massage oil just for my hubby. You can apply to the thighs and massage on the back of your husband to help set the mood. It can also be used as a men’s cologne.
Hong Kuai comes from a tree found in the mountains of the Taiwan rainforests. It’s incredibly high in sesquiterpene content, this means Hong Kuai is like getting a boost of liquid confidence for men. With its woodsy aroma, it can make a perfect cologne for men. Here’s a great recipe to increase feelings of romance, perseverance, and confidence for men: Mix 2 drops of Hong Kuai, 1 drop of Ylang Ylangand 1 drop of Blue Spruce. Apply to thighs, neck and VitaFlex points on the feet.
Goldenrod helps to support the circulatory system. As the name suggests, Goldenrod can be used on well… let’s just say it will make a man feel like a THOR. It can be applied to the lower abdomen, ankles, or VitaFlex points on the feet either neat or diluted.
Lady Sclareol is a blend of rosewood, vetiver, geranium, orange, clary sage, ylang ylang, sandalwood, sage lavender, jasmine and Idaho Tansy. It has a seductive and alluring scent for both men and women – A perfect choice for those special moments in the bedroom
Mister is a blend of sage, fennel, lavender, myrtle, peppermint, and blue yarrow in a base of sesame seed oil. It can be used as a men’s cologne and used to promote inner balance.
