Boost Your Love Life With Essential Oils

Posted: February 3, 2015 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

Have you figured out what to do for Valentine’s Day yet?

This holiday can be tricky!  Getting a card and some flowers seems so cliché, but you have no idea what to do to be original.  People are always asking me how to use aromatherapy for romance and sexuality, and I figured this is the perfect time of year to share some tips with you!!



This is a great essential oil for your libido, because it awakens your senses.  It will make you forget all about how tired and weary you are so that you can concentrate all of your efforts on a night of sensuality: Basil Essential Oil

black pepper

Just like it spices up your food, it also spices up your sex life!  This oil is warm and spicy, making it perfect for rekindling lost passion.  If you feel like you and your partner have fallen into a sexual rut, this aphrodisiac will make you remember all of those hot sparks you had at the beginning of your relationship — back when everything was new and exciting. Black Pepper Essential Oil

ginger and cardamom

Ginger and Cardamom are warm, arousing, and inviting. They are also spicy oils.  In fact, the great physician Avicenna was singing Ginger’s praises more than a thousand years ago!  He said it was perfect for increasing circulation and, thus, creating more powerful erections. Ginger Essential Oil Cardamom Essential Oil

clary sage

If you’re looking for an erotic essential oil that can help you relax and enjoy a sensual night, look no further!  Clary sage will eliminate all of your stress, help you calm down, and even lower your inhibitions so that you have the courage to try out something new in the bedroom. Clary Sage Essential Oil

jasmine absolute

You’ve probably smelled Jasmine flowers before.  They bloom at night and create a sweet scent that’s a perfect aphrodisiac.  When used in essential oil form, Jasmine can make you remember all of those old romantic feelings you once had.  It will soothe your anxiety, make you feel calm, and make both you and your partner more seductive. Jasmine Absolute


With its musky, earthy scent, Patchouli rose in popularity during the 1960’s — back when hippies were all about free love.  Patchouli has a strong scent, so test it out first to make sure you and your partner both like it.  If you do, you’ll find that your inhibitions are lowered, your mind will be clearer, and you’ll feel confident enough to discuss all of your physical and emotional desires. Patchouli Essential Oil 

Interestingly, Patchouli can create an entirely different mood depending on how you use it.  A small amount will have a sedative-like effect, while larger amounts will do the exact opposite and stimulate your senses.

rose absolute

Ever watch your partner when you give her a bouquet of roses?  One sniff, and she’s more emotional, more tender, and more filled with love.  Legend has it that Cleopatra first made love to Mark Anthony on a carpet buried one inch deep in rose petals, and amazingly, Rose oil can have an even more intense effect!  It’s a powerful aphrodisiac that eliminates any painful feelings, while making you feel warmer and more intimate. Rose Absolute

Rose an especially potent essential oil for the female libido, so if you want to help your wife relax and get in the mood, this is a great tool to do it!

ylang ylang

If you’re looking for a sweet essential oil that increases your libido, Ylang ylang is the perfect choice!  It’s long been a favorite of honeymooners because it eliminates anxiety and performance issues.  In addition to stimulating your senses, Ylang ylang will also open up your heart — making you more willing to express your emotions and your deepest thoughts. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Have you picked out a few favorites?

Good!  Now let’s talk about putting them to good use!

You’ve got two options for using these essential oils to boost your romance and sexuality — you can diffuse them in an aromatherapy burner, or you can use them to make your own massage oils.

Here are some massage oil recipes that I love, because each one creates a distinct mood.
