You could use essential oils to enhance the mood, relax tense feelings and help the passage of true love run smoothly! There are lots of essential oils that can be used. Some are expensive but there are lots of reasonably priced ones that you can also use. Below is some information about the essential oils and some ideas for blends. I’ll share some others on Facebook through the week

Rose otto (Rosa Damascena) – A luxurious, sensual, expensive essential oil. Excellent for treating many problems associated with the female reproductive system. It is thought to be an aphrodisiac helping women to express femininity and inspiring sensuality. It works with the heart chakra to inspire love for oneself, strengthening the inner spirit

Cardomom (Elettaria Cardamomum) – This warming, rich spicy oil is ‘male’ in action. Its main use is to tone the system, inspiring courage and reducing worries. It is good for grounding people.

Ginger (Zingiber Officinale) – This oil is warming and spicy bringing warmth and heat to the system. It helps rid the winter blues with its warming, deep aroma. Ginger is thought to be stimulating and arousing, helping to alleviate exhaustion.

Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata)  – This oil is made from the petals which give off a heady exotic fragrance. Traditionally the petals as scattered in the bed of newlyweds in the Moluccan Islands. This ‘female’ oil is thought to reduce inhibitions, promoting confidence and sensuality. Over use can result in ‘sickly, nauseous headaches’ – be warned!!

Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum) – Black Pepper is said to be aphrodisiac in action. Its aroma is deep and spicy. It is described as building endurance, and helping restore fire and passion. It is also good for reconnecting to oneself when you feel stuck or trapped.

Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin) – This oil is described as being a powerful aphrodisiac. It has a strong aroma which not everyone can cope with. Blended with other oils it loses its strong smell. It is described as being sensual, spicy and erotic. Being a tree oil it helps ground people and find their earthy, sensual feelings. Personally it reminds me of Bikers – perhaps they didn’t only use it to condition leather and hide the smell of dope!
