Aphrodisiac Essential Oils For The Bedroom

, , ,

Research suggests several kinds of essential oils may have aphrodisiac properties when inhaled before or during intimacy. In fact, it’s known that some strong odors can trigger erections  and that women with a stronger sense of smell tend to have more orgasms during sex.

Essential oils contain many different properties that aid in increasing sexual desire. Depending on which oils you use, they could:

  • Improve your mood.
  • Restore self-confidence.
  • Relieve stress and anxiety.
  • Clear your mind and help you focus.
  • Relax your mind and body.
  • Give you energy.
  • Help treat other common problems of low libido like high blood pressure.

HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS

  1. Inhaled
  2. Diffuse using a diffuser.
  3. Consider a dry evaporation- Place 2-4 drops of essential oil on a cotton ball or tissue and let it sit in a bowl near you.
  4. Make a bottled spray- Creating a spritz or spray with essential oils can deodorize a room, set a mood or transform a space into an aromatherapy session. Put a total of 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (or a combination of 1-3 essential oils) and one ounce of water into a spray bottle and shake. Spray liberally in your bedroom, bathroom or wherever you desire. You can also mist it lightly on your sheets or pillowcases.
  5. Drop it into a bath water or in your shower gel While a bathing ritual itself can be a self-soothing treatment, adding essential oils can further benefit you. The important part of this method is using a dispersant in order to properly incorporate the oil into the bathwater. Combine up to 12 drops of your essential oil of choice with one teaspoon of whole milk, vegetable oil or honey and then add to the water just before you step in or into your shower gel.
  6. Apply it to your skin during a self-massage- Your body becomes the diffuser here as it heats up the essential oil and releases its scent into the air. The first step is mixing it with a carrier oil, like grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil. Diluting the essential oil helps avoid an allergic reaction, especially with prolonged use. When combining, use 20 drops of essential oil for every ounce of carrier. If you’d rather use water instead of a carrier oil, be sure to shake the mixture well right before applying it to your skin.
  7. Add it to your body or face lotion- This is another method where the heat of your skin helps diffuse the essential oil, allowing you to inhale its fragrance. Add about 6-15 drops (halve this measurement if you have sensitive skin) of oil to one ounce of unscented body or face lotion and stir thoroughly before applying.
  8. You can also use diluted essential oils to give your partner a massage. Doing so releases the scent of the oil while activating your partner’s muscle systems and boosting their blood flow.

Most essential oils will last up to a year when you store them in a cool, dark place. Toss them if they have lost their odor or turn thick and cloudy.

NOTE: If you are pregnant or have a health condition, check with your doctor before using essential oils. Even though they are natural, they are still potent and should be used with care.

You should never apply essential oils to your genitals, even if diluted with a carrier oil.

Essential oils can cause an allergic reaction in some people. Read labels and avoid oils from plants to which you might be allergic.

Always use a carrier oil to dilute essential oils to avoid irritating your skin. Never apply essential oils near your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, or on your genitals.

If you notice you or your partner are having a reaction to essential oils — such as stinging or red skin — remove the oil immediately with warm water and soap.

Essential oils in the bedroom? Yes, there are oils for that.

Do not apply essential oils directly to the skin.

Even if you freaking love sex, sometimes getting in the mood can be a bit of a challenge, especially when the daily grind is zapping your mental and emotional energy reserves. I know for me, (Bev Munga) at the end of the day, sometimes it takes all I’ve got just to watch my favourite movie or read a book, let alone actually feel ready to roll around between the sheets. My advice? Consider tapping into the wide world of essential oils in the bedroom to boost your sex drive and enhance those relaxing, feel-good vibes. Whether you’re due for a solo session, or you and your partner simply want to set the stage for an extra special night, these oils can definitely add to (and potentially even induce) your arousal, while benefiting your shut-eye at the same damn time.

As for a little background on how all this might actually work, an essential oil is a mixture of the chemicals, or “essential” compounds, of a plant with a carrier oil, extracted by a process of distillation. Each type of oil is believed to have unique benefits, depending on what plant it was extracted from. Essential oils are often used for things like aromatherapy through massage, or even by just dabbing the product onto the skin. They can also be used in baths, or you can diffuse them throughout your room, or even your entire home. The fragrances of the oils stimulate the olfactory system, which is the part of the brain connected to your sense of smell.

And while essential oils seem to be having a moment right now, they are by no means a new thing. Apparently there’s record of Egyptians using aromatic oils for their healing properties as early as 4500 B.C. — and that includes being used for sexy bedroom adventures, too. Seems like they were onto something, no? Try one of these six essential oils for yourself to see what it’s all about.

Dilute essential oils in a carrier oil- Carrier Oils are basically vegetable oils and used to dilute the essential oils and help carry them into the skin.

Aloe Vera gels, massage oils, body lotions or even  coconut oil and  Avocado oil can be used to diffuse the essential oils which  should not be used directly to the skin.

To dilute, use 3 to 5 drops of essential oil in one ounce of carrier oil or to your shower gel or body mist.

Set the mood, make a love potion or make personal lubricants. Essential oils got you covered when it comes to romance and intimacy.

Scents plays a huge role in romance. Our sense of smell is directly linked to the limbic system, the most primitive part of the brain associated with emotions and memories.

Of course, some fragrances will get your motor running more effectively than others. Aphrodisiac scents  such as lavender, sage, jasmine can help to soothe the body, relax the mind, boost self-confidence, improve circulation, and invigorate the senses to bring one to the right state of mind for experiencing love and romance.

Inhaling the scent of lavender has been found to significantly decrease anxiety and stress. This resulted in high levels of relaxation, which could benefit sexual experience.

Essential Oils helps to Relax and Arouse

We’re not just biochemically linked to feel aroused through our senses. Essential oils reduce stress and elevate mood. This in itself can promote increased feelings of sensuality and energy. Think about it, the more relaxed you are the easier it is to get in the “mood”, right? So, Essential oils really have two roles in increasing libido.

Essential oils can help to increase libido and enhance performance for both men and women. To use essential oils specifically for romantic situations, you could choose to use them as perfume or cologne to help you and your partner get in the mood. To create a distinctive and appealing scent, blend essential oils together.

You can use diffuse the oil with water, the put in a sprayer/ can to spray bedding or pillows  or even curtains to set the mood, or wear as a perfume on my neck and wrists.

Scents like lavender can increase sexual energy and get you both excited for what’s about to happen. Scent is powerfully tied to memory so if you always diffuse a certain blend of oils your partner will know when things are going to get frisky.

Using oils topically is another great way to bring them into the bedroom. Make sure to test all oils for skin sensitivity or allergic reactions before using them for romance. Nothing will kill the mood more than finding out you’re sensitive to an oil (be it too hot, too intense, or an actual allergy). If you and your partner have used the oil before then your good to continue. You can make a relaxing and seductive massage oil. Or an inner thigh potion to get yourself or your partner pumped up and ready to go.

Women who have higher scent sensitivity report more orgasms than women who do not. So if you have a good nose, your sex might benefit from using essential oils.

Some essential oils with possible aphrodisiac effects for women include Lavender and Jasmine,Rose, Sage and other essential Oils.

Here are just some of the best benefits

  • They’re all-natural. A risk-free, all-natural cure for a nagging problem? I’ll take that any day over medication.

  • Some work immediatelyupon inhalation — yes, there really is such thing as instant results with no complications!

Some essential oils work as aphrodisiacs while others make you happy, stress-free, and relaxed. Regardless, It’s all important for the best sexual experience possible.

  1. Lavender Essential oil

Is calming, sedating, and alluring natural fragrance.

It can be used in combination with aphrodisiac oils to promote relaxation and an increased thirst for pleasure.

Lavender seems to be the go-to wonder oil when it comes to relaxing, falling into a deep sleep, and yes, even enhancing your dreams.

Pro tip: If you’re looking to get into ~the mood~ before a steamy night with your partner, try rubbing lavender oil or a similar lotion blend on your legs and the interior of your thighs.

Inhaling the scent of lavender has been found to significantly decrease anxiety and stress. This resulted in high levels of relaxation, which could benefit sexual experience.

  1. Rose Essential Oil

Rose, baby — it’s not just for dusting your pillows with some of those soft, fragrant petals. Roll a rose oil blend onto your pulse points, drop some in a showergel, or diffuse in your bedroom for a sexy mood-booster.

Rose is considered a natural aphrodisiac, and in addition to being super relaxing, it’s said to enhance your libido, too. In fact, rose is often considered the essential oil “of love,” and is believed to open the heart center. Yes, please!

  1. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Ylang-ylang oil has long been used as an aphrodisiac, and it’s known to uplift the emotions while simultaneously acting as a “catalyst for sexual passions.”

Research suggests that inhaling ylang ylang essential oil is associated with feelings of euphoria, and helps relieve depression. One study  Source even demonstrated that applying ylang ylang oil to the skin can improve self-esteem.

While there’s no clear scientific link between ylang ylang and sexual experience, evidence suggests it can improve mental health. And because mood is linked to sexual experience, it’s possible that ylang ylang is a good essential oil for sexual stimulation.

This essential oil is also said to slow down a fast-beating heart and a quickened breath. Although, once you and your partner meet between the sheets, I’m not sure how long those effects will last — if you know what I mean.

  1. Sandalwood Essential Oil

Researchers have found that women who inhaled sandalwood essential oil and its main compound during sex reported increased mood and higher levels of desire than those who did not.

It is also considered a majorly powerful libido-booster, as well as a mood- and relaxation-enhancer and ESPECIALLY FOR MEN.

Rumor has it, that sandalwood is even used as a potential remedy for impotence. Why not try it out yourself to see if it’s true?

In both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, sandalwood oil is believed to be beneficial in treating both physical and mental disorders, including anxiety, bronchitis, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, gallbladder problems, high blood pressure, indigestion, insomnia, liver problems, low libido, sore throat, and urinary  Tract Infections.

 

  1. Jasmine Essential Oil

Research has shown that jasmine oil, when used for a massage, can cause major increases in how fast you’re breathing, an increase of oxygen in your blood, and a drop in blood pressure levels — all of which are factors that point to an increased arousal of the nervous system. Pretty cool, right?

Jasmine oil is an essential oil derived from the white flowers of the common jasmine plant, also known as Jasminun officinale.  For centuries, jasmine has been popular for its sweet, romantic fragrance and has been used in some of the world’s best-known perfumes, including Chanel No 5.

It’s also a common ingredient in alcohol, sweets, and desserts.

Jasmine oil and components of synthetic blends of jasmine essential oil have properties that offer a number of health benefits. Though it’s a popular home remedy used to treat everything from depression to infections, it’s best known as an aphrodisiac.

Jasmine’s romantic scent has long been believed to have an aphrodisiac effect. It’s been worn as a fragrance, and in parts of India, jasmine flowers are often included as décor at weddings in the newlyweds’ bedroom to set the mood for romance.

There is little scientific evidence to back its effects as an aphrodisiac. We do know that inhaling jasmine or using it in aromatherapy massage improves mood and has been reported to increase romantic and positive feelings, as well as energy levels.

These things could, in theory, prime someone for romance and sex. Also, its stimulant effect on brain waves may make a person more alert to sexual cues, possibly increasing blood flow to the penis, according to a small study that looked at the association between odors and sexual response.

If you’re hoping to spice things up in the bedroom with jasmine oil, try dabbing some of the oil on your neck. Your body heat will enhance the scent. You can also add a few drops on bedding, to a warm bath, or to a difuser in the bedroom.

  1. Sage

Sage is a great scent that’s been associated with quite a wide variety of health benefits, including decreases in PMS symptoms and, apparently, increases in sexual confidence. Sounds like the perfect combination to me, no?

When used in aromatherapy, sage oil can help alleviate stress by inducing a sense of well-being. One small study done on women undergoing a stressful medical test indicated that when inhaled,  sage essential oil elicited feelings of relaxation and helped to reduce blood pressure.

Another  Study carried with menopausal women indicated that inhaled  sage oil reduced cortisol, the stress hormone, and produced an antidepressant-like effect.

One component of  sage oil is sclareol, which mimics the effects of estrogen in the body. For this reason,  sage may be effective at reducing some of the symptoms of menopause. Some research suggests that diluted sage oil applied to the bottoms of the feet can reduce hot flashes

Sage as an essential oil has been proven to help with cramps. Another study examined 48 women who experienced painful menstruation and cramps. Some of the women were given a cream containing sage oil and other essential oils to apply onto their lower abdomens daily, between menstrual cycles. The women who used the cream had a significant reduction in menstrual cramps than the control Group.

TAKEAWAY

While it’s hard to measure any clear links between using essential oils and sexual experience, there’s evidence that some essential oils -(Above) are effective aphrodisiacs. With proper safety precautions, there’s little risk from experimenting with essential oils to enhance your sexual experience.
