It’s almost the day of love, and for many people ‘setting the mood’ may be high on the priority list. You may have heard about certain foods being aphrodisiacs, but your sense of smell can do the job much more efficiently. Our sense of smell is the sense most closely related to our emotions. Creating the right mood can be as simple as adding the right scent to your body, clothing, or bedroom.
Rosemary, Ylang Ylang, Patchulli, Rose, or Jasmine essential oils are not only aphrodisiacs, but can also promote relaxation and confidence. Use massage oils containing one or more of these essential oils to give a sensual massage (like the Basic Body Oil, for example ;)). Warm the oil in your hands and gently massage the back, arms, legs, and hands to create a relaxing and sexually stimulating experience for your partner.
Put a few drops of one of the essential oils on a cotton ball and put in the drawer with your lingerie; you can also put the cotton ball in a baggie with your desired garments to concentrate the scent (do not apply the essential oils directly to your skin or garments).
Give the room a little aromatherapy by adding a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of warm water, or a warm bath. Dilute a few drops of essential oil in water (or use the Basic Freshener) and spritz your sheets, clothing, and body to create a relaxing, luxurious, and stimulating atmosphere.
Add a few candles, the right music, and voila – you have the perfect evening for Cupid’s finest.
