The month of February holds the day of Valentines. With that comes the inspiration of romance and gift-giving and well…you know…sex. Since scientists agree that there is an uptick in pregnancies due to the holiday, let me share with you some great essential oils that may help heat up YOUR life in February.
If you are one of the millions of people that have issues in this area, you are definitely NOT alone. By age 40, nearly 40% of men have experienced some sort of erectile dysfunction and up to 70% by age 70. A reported 63% of women overall have or have had some sort of sexual dysfunction. As you can see by these statistics, a few essential oils couldn’t hurt, right? Let’s dive in!
The first oil is Rose essential oil. It’s calming and has been used throughout the years as an aphrodisiac. Use a little rose oil on a few cotton balls and distribute around the room/house or use a few drops in a bath to help lessen any anxious feelings prior.
Ylang Ylang essential oil also has been used as an aphrodisiac in many countries, so if you aren’t a fan of Rose, perhaps Ylang Ylang will be the better one for you to try.
Clary Sage essential oil has helped people with all kinds of things like relieving tension, helping women with hormone regulation and also happens to be antimicrobial. It has high concentrates of esters, which has antispasmodic and sedative properties. It is known to be very relaxing for setting the mood.
Cinnamon Bark essential oil has long been known to enhance energy and reduce fatigue. In the bedroom, it is known as the oil of sexual harmony. It supports the reproductive system and helps to assist the person(s) in body acceptance issues. I would wholeheartedly recommend diffusing this beautiful oil, so the smells waft through the room.
Jasmine essential oil. One of my personal favorites. The aroma is incredible, beautiful and sweet. It is a gentle reminder of what sweetness mother nature gives us. The properties of Jasmine are antiseptic, antidepressant, sedative, antispasmodic and cicatrisant. The sedative and alluring smell of Jasmine essential oil can enhance and encourage romantic feelings. If you happen to have scars, this oil can also help you heal your skin too.
With all of these oils I encourage you to try diffusing them with a water diffuser for best results. You can also use coconut oil and a one or two drops of these oils incorporated into a nice massage, as touching can bring people closer and help to encourage enhanced sexual feelings. Remember that any of your “warm or hot” oils (cinnamon bark) may cause discomfort and should not be used in areas with increased sensitivity. Any time you are using any essential oil on the skin, you should always try it in a small amount, on a small area first to see if there are any possible skin sensitivities. (Plus, if you have an itchy, burning partner, you will likely kill the mood! Lol)
