It’s the season of love and I have some fun facts to share with you! Did you know that aromatherapy is so effective that some oils are considered aphrodisiacs and are capable of evoking passionate feelings? So, forget the candles this Valentine’s Day, diffuse some essential oils to help create a romantic atmosphere for you and your loved one. Essential oils not only provide a lovely aroma, but they also have positive benefits on your health and well-being. Our sense of smell is the strongest of the five senses, and the one most closely associated to memory and emotion. Most of us have experienced a rush of emotion after smelling a certain scent. Fragrance can inspire romance, ignite a memory (of a first date or first kiss ) and stimulate attraction with just one quick whiff. Here are some essential oils that are great choices to have wafting through your home on Valentine’s Day.
The rose is the most prevalent bought flower for Valentine’s Day and the most commonly used flower to symbolize love. So, if you want romance, rose geranium essential oil is the perfect pairing for your special occasion. Its sweet floral scent is romantic and is well known for inciting feelings of desire and love.
If you’re looking for an aphrodisiac, Ylang Ylang essential oil is a good choice to diffuse to enhance your sexual experience while also balancing your emotions and boosting your mood. Ylang Ylang is an excellent essential oil for promoting love and romance and it mixes beautifully with scents such as Rose Geranium and Peppermint, they all create captivating aromas that are wonderful scents to disperse throughout your space on Valentine’s Day!
Lavender essential oil promotes relaxation, so if you and your valentine are too tired and stressed from the daily grind to go out and celebrate, just add a few drops to your diffuser to create a calm setting so you can enjoy a relaxing evening at home together.
Essential oils can enhance the experience of the day, so I’ve put together some essential oil blends inspired by love that are perfect for setting the mood for your Valentine’s Day celebration.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
