Get Sexy: Essential Oils for Sensuality

Add a little aromatherapy to your romantic endeavors to spice up your love life.

Essential oils and sensuality have been connected since ancient times. From plant-based aphrodisiacs to perfumed ointments, aromatherapy has been used around the world and throughout the ages to engage the senses, heighten awareness, ease tension, and contribute to an atmosphere of fragrant indulgence. Whether you’re looking for a way to jump-start your libido or add a supplemental boost to your boudoir, incorporating aromatherapy into your romance repertoire makes sense (and scents!)

Essential oils can help create a seductive environment.

Fragrance has been used to set the stage for romance throughout history. According to legend, Cleopatra fragranced the purple sails of her boat when she went to visit Marc Antony so that the winds carried her scent to the shore in Tarsus. The ancient Kama Sutra text by Vatsyayana mentions adorning your body and environment with fragrant ointments and oils to enhance lovemaking. And in modern times, no romantic scene is complete without flowers and candles. Aromatherapy is a potent ingredient of seduction.  

E-Sensual oils

As human beings, we’re biologically hardwired to be physically and emotionally impacted by sensory input – a lot of our natural instincts come from clues derived from our senses. Our olfactory system is directly linked to the limbic system, which helps manage memories, emotions, and learning. Studies have also shown that essential oils have a stress-relieving effect. It’s only natural that aromatherapy can help you find a more romantic state of mind.

Aromatherapy works by stimulating the limbic system through the olfactory system.
Smell is linked with the part of the brain that manages memories and emotions.

How to use essential oils for sensuality

When it comes to finding ways to incorporate aromatherapy into your arsenal of love, you have a few options. Consider the following:

  • Mist your favorite scent on your linens, after diluting the oil with water.
  • Mix with a carrier oil such as sweet almond or coconut and give your partner a massage.
  • Draw a bath for two and add a few drops of a pleasing fragrance.
  • Use a diffuser with your favorite blend. A room diffuser will emit a gentle scent, while a personal essential oil diffuser provides a more direct impact to the olfactory system and gives you something fun to connect over with your partner. Passing a diffuser back and forth has a fun, sexy vibe.
