Essential Oils for Love & Attraction

Want to spice up your love life this Valentine's Day? Or maybe you're just looking to turn heads with a tantalizing scent!
Essential oils that have aphrodisiac properties are great for instigating romance! Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or a loved one’s birthday, you can use one of several essential oils to set the mood for love.

Ever since 
the time of Cleopatra, essential oils have been used to promote everything from health and beauty to fertility and virility and of course, romance. Many cultures, including the Greeks, learned from the Egyptians how to use these aromatic oils to increase passion and incite romance. This expertise quickly spread across the world.
Some of the most popular aphrodisiac essential oils used in aromatherapy today include rose, neroli, sandalwood, ylang ylang and patchouli.
Aphrodisiac essential oils work their magic by stimulating our olfactory system when we inhale them. This stimulation directs our emotions by releasing and modulating hormones.  Different scents will stimulate different emotions, and in the case of aphrodisiac oils, specifically the emotions of passion, attraction,  feelings of euphoria, and pleasurable sensations.

Essential oils can be used to scent sheets and pillowcases, in the bath, in place of perfume, as massage oils, in lotions and candles, and to scent a room. Apply a couple of drops to the pulse points on your neck, wrists, elbows, chest or knees.  With the excess on your hands, run your fingers through your hair. Men can use the essential oils as cologne, deodorant, or aftershave.
