ESSENTIAL OILS FOR LOVE MONTH
Yes, the romance season 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 and 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.
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
Like a ray of sunshine, lemon essential oil brightens up your life and washes away all impurities and negative feelings.
The scent of Sweet Orange is warming, comforting, and “fodder for the heart.” It encourages you to take things in good humor and absolves emotional confusion.
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. Many 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.
Profound and seductive, Clary Sage negates melancholy and stimulates sexuality.
A sweet aroma that soothes away bitterness, Ylang Ylang enhances libido and dispels jealousy and envy feelings. Its exotic scent helps reunite our emotional and sensual natures.
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.
The luxurious and erotic scent of rose fuels passion and self-assurance. It helps you discover and revel in your own sensuality.
With the healing qualities of Mother Nature, Lavender washes away emotional conflict and fills you with newfound confidence.
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? There is no specific category for aphrodisiac essential oils. Still, 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 the 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 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 two or three of your favorite oils in a diffuser and up the ambiance.
Whatever you do to celebrate Valentine’s Day-Love Yourself!
