Can Aromatherapy enhance love-making…? Most people know there are certain scents that cause them to feel happy, sad, angry, depressed, and even scents that make them feel sexually aroused. I’ve received many questions in regards to what one can use for a healthier, more intense sexual experience. In answer to these questions, and those specific to aromatherapy, I will detail here what aromatherapy is and how we can enhance our sexual experiences in a holistic, healing fashion with essential oils.
Aromatic oils have been used since ancient times in massages and therapeutic baths. These excellent remedies used by herbalists are magnificent for depression and relieving stress. And of course, we have found they have a very intriguing effect on the sexual experience. Essential oils act in plants the way hormones do in us humans. Even Cleopatra is known for applying lotus and other essential oils behind her ears to attract Mark Anthony…
Scents have an effect on memory, thought, even our emotions, and studies show these effects on brain-waves also. There are specific aromatherapy oils that increase arousal and heighten love-making in both men and women. These essential oils have an affect of also increasing relaxation and alertness.
Sex enhancing oils are to be used in the following ways:
- Massage 3-5 drops of essential oil on the bottoms of the feet, the lower back above the buttocks, and the front and side of the hips. If utilizing a carrier oil, add 10-12 drops of essential oil to 1/2 oz. of carrier oil.
- Place a few drops of essential oil on the bed sheets and pillows. In this way you infuse the bedroom with the scent that increases sexual desire in both a man and woman.
The following are sex enhancing oils for Women:
The following are sex enhancing oils for Men:
My favorite recommended Carrier Oil is an unscented formula that features the following combination of oils: Sunflower, Safflower, Grape seed, Olive, and Vitamin E. An unscented formula as such is important so it does not compete with the scent of the essential oil combined with it. In this way the healing effects on body and mind from inhaling is not disturbed.
(*NOTE: When considering utilizing essential oils, be sure they are high quality, authentic and ORGANIC. True essential oils should be free of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), pesticides, toxins, etc. SureSource Guarantee is key to trusting the authenticity of an oil. SureSource Guarantee is a practice that absolutely verifies essential oil authenticity back to cultivation, harvest and original distillation. Why does ‘Authenticity’ matter? First, essential oils applied topically are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream almost instantly. Second, inhaling an oil’s aroma immediately passes vapors into your body and mind. For these important reasons, Authenticity matters and is crucial. As a natural health practitioner in practice for over 22 years, authentic, high quality grade herbs, supplements, and products are all I recommend with confidence, with continued, successful results among patients and clients.)
Herbs and roots taken in combination with the use of essential oils have proven to be one of the best ways to bring the human body to an overall all-encompassing experience of heightened and sustained sexual response and good health.
In addition to the above oils, Women can use the following female herbal formula for sexual health, glandular and hormonal balance, increased sexual response, and heightened libido (sexual desire):
- X-ACTION FOR WOMEN This exquisite herbal combination helps facilitate blood flow to the reproductive area and promotes circulation. More blood flow to the reproductive area of a woman means increased response to external stimuli. In other words, the woman ‘feels’ more. She becomes more sensitive and can orgasm with increased ease. This formula contains Maca root which provides a natural means for improving sexual desire and performance. It also is known to enhance physical energy and endurance and helps buffer the effects of stress.
Along with sex enhancing oils mentioned for gentlemen, Men can use the following herbal formula to help increase sexual vitality, sexual performance, and balance hormones, especially testosterone levels:
- X-ACTION RELOADED This herbal formula combines nutrients to support male reproductive function, sexual performance and enjoyment, prostate health and cardiovascular health. Ingredients in the formula work together to support optimal nitric oxide levels in the body. Nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels to enable optimal blood flow. Efficient blood flow is crucial for healthy male sexual activity and overall vascular health. Icariin, a flavonoid extracted from epimedium, may selectively inhibit phosphodiesterase type V (PDE-5), an enzyme that causes the male sexual response to subside. By blocking this enzyme, sustained sexual activity may be promoted. Icariin also plays a role in increased smooth muscle relaxation and increased blood flow through its actions on cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) levels and nitric oxide synthase (NOs) activity.
