Aromatherapy for Romance
People have been curious about and interested in aphrodisiacs for as long as they’ve been around. General interest always spikes around Valentine’s Day, but there’s always someone interested in the magical and mysterious world of aphrodisiacs.
From oysters to chocolate to chili peppers, people have been using food to get themselves in the mood for centuries. There are other aphrodisiacs than food that often get overlooked. Essential oils can be used as an aromatherapy technique to spice up your romance.
The most common essential oils used as an aphrodisiac are neroli, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and ylang ylang. Through reading this article, you will gain a basic understanding of aromatherapy for romantic purposes.
How do essential oils work as aphrodisiacs?
The preferred method for getting the aphrodisiac benefits of essential oils is through aromatherapy, in layman's terms, by smelling them. Inhaling deeply through the nose is one of the quickest methods to absorb all of the essential oil’s many benefits.
The nose has a direct connection to the brain. When you inhale aphrodisiac essential oils deeply, you stimulate the limbic system in your brain, which is responsible for moods and emotions. Inhaling the aphrodisiac essential oils can invoke romantic or sexual feelings.
Neroli, often called orange blossom, has been traditionally used at weddings to calm the bride and set a romantic mood. The orange blossom flower was frequently placed in the bride’s hair and bouquet because it was thought to calm her nerves and stimulate a romantic wedding night.
Neroli oil was introduced by the princess of Nerola and duchess of Bracciano, Anne Marie de la Trémoille (Orsini) as a fragrance for high society. She perfumed her gloves and stationary with it and put some in her bath. Neroli oil has a heady smell of orange floral undertones.
Most people think of roses when they think of romance, but did you know there’s an oil made from roses that can actually work as an aphrodisiac? Authentic rose oil is highly expensive, so be wary of cheap types you may find, as they’re likely synthetic.
It takes thousands of rose petals to extract the oil, which is why it costs so much to make, but the pungent aroma provides a nice romantic feel. You can put a few drops in your bath or mix it into some lotion or massage oil for a sensual massage.
Patchouli oil is most commonly thought of as the incense of choice during the hippy era, however, it originally gained popularity back in the 1800s when it was used as a perfume base in Europe.
This oil has an earthy scent that, when breathed in deeply, can induce feelings of a romantic nature. It can be used in incense, be added to a bath, or be added to your favorite sensual oil or lotion. Patchouli can definitely help you set the mood.
Sandalwood is often brown for its relaxing and meditative benefits. It’s used quite frequently in churches and other religious buildings in the form of incense. It can also be used as an aphrodisiac. It’s most useful when added to massage lotions or baths.
For as long as they’ve been around, people have been interested in aphrodisiacs and other such things to spice up their love life. Most people have tried or heard of using foods as aphrodisiacs but haven’t consider the many options in the world of aromatherapy.
Aphrodisiac essential oils can help you to spice things up in the bedroom easily and naturally.
