Essential oils are believed by many to have the ability to purify and strengthen human energy fields. And some even believe that certain essential oils can align your aura with the energy of love. Intriguing, right?
Now, skeptics will say that this can be explained by the fact that the aroma of essential oils, when reaching the brain via the olfactory organs, can affect the pituitary gland and make you feel happier, more relaxed, calmer and even… in love.
So, do essential oils really attract love?
Aphrodisiac essential oils positively impact relationships by boosting libido and stimulating passion. They also have a calming effect and they can make you feel better about yourself and less self-aware (which, in the context of sexual experiences, is, most of the times, a good thing). These oils help create a sense of connection between partners and they can help increase closeness, intimacy and affection.
What essential oils are good for attracting love
There are several essential oils you can use to help increase intimacy in your relationship. These are my top 5 recommendations:
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is one of the most popular essential oils for love and
romance. It has a sweet floral aroma with a powerful relaxing effect and, as most exotic fragrances, it can help reduce stress and anxiety. Traditionally, in Indonesia, the petals of the ylang-ylang flower are scattered on the beds of newlyweds.
You can pair Ylang Ylang with any citrus essential oil to enhance its benefits. My personal favorite: a combination of three drops of ylang-ylang, three drops of sweet orange essential oil, and two drops of Clary sage. Put the blend into an electric diffuser and let it do its thing.
Jasmine Essential Oil
Jasmine Essential Oil has a floral, exotic and warm fragrance and it has been used for centuries for attraction and romance. You can use a few drops of Jasmine essential oil diluted with olive oil to give your partner a massage that will get the passion ignited. The scent is also believed to balance female energies.
Patchouli Essential Oil
Patchouli Essential Oil is believed to help rekindle desire and it has been used as an aphrodisiac for decades. It can also help relax your body before bedtime. For best results, I would recommend combining a few drops of patchouli essential oil with a couple of drops of rose essential oil. Speaking of which…
Rose Otto Essential Oil
Rose Otto Essential Oil has a signature floral fragrance that brings about feelings of love and comfort, helping create an environment that fosters intimacy. You can blend rose essential oil with sandalwood and ylang-ylang to create a seductive and calming fragrance.
Sheer Bliss Essential Oil
Sheer Bliss Essential Oil Blend can help create a gentle aura of pleasant joy all around you. Its fresh, citrusy scent instantly transports your mind to sunny days, lush green valleys carpeted with beautiful flowers and ripe orchards. When you breathe in the soothing fragrance, gloom seems to vanish, and calming serenity takes its place.
How do you make a love potion with essential oils?
I’m not sure I believe in love potions, and probably neither do you. However, you can certainly combine the love-and-passion-inducing essential oils we’ve already talked about to create blends that have a similar effect – they make one feel more relaxed, cheerful, and ready to embrace love. You can diffuse them, put them on wearable diffusers, add them to a warm bath (properly diluted in a carrier oil) or use them to create a signature perfume.
Here is a blend for love, which I absolutely, well, love:
- 15 drops of lavender
- 10 drops of rose otto
- 10 drops of jasmine
- 10 drops of Ylang Ylang
- 10 drops of cinnamon
- 50 drops of wild orange
- 40 drops of Myrrh
Put all the essential oils in an amber glass dropper bottle. Screw the cap tightly and shake the bottle so that all the oils are mixed evenly. That’s it!
What essential oil turns a man on?
I had to try to answer this question, just because I hear it so often!
If the lack of sexual desire is caused by stress, anxiety or tiredness, then essential oils can definitely help. Diffuse some jasmine, patchouli or Ylang Ylang to help your partner relax and rekindle its passion. And while you’re at it, you’ll get a nice little passion boost yourself!
