Essential oils - aphrodisiacs for a romantic evening


What essential oils help harmonize relationships?

Valentine's Day is that special occasion when couples set aside time just for their partner. It is a time to celebrate your love and commitment to one another as you reconnect and create a renewed spark together.

Learn which are the best aphrodisiac essential oils and try the homemade recipe mix.

Since ancient times, people have been searching for the secret of longevity and health, as well as the secret of fertility and eternal love. People foraged for herbs, brewed potions and experimented on animals, used poison, such as snakes or toads, brewed a potion, and believed that this was their salvation and protection. With the help of herbs and infusions, they tried to find that unique elixir of masculine strength and feminine attractiveness, as well as finding harmony in relationships and loyalty. Over time, flowers and fragrances have attracted more and more people's attention. With the help of aromas, a person could permanently fix pleasant moments in his memory or, on the contrary, drive away an evil force... heal the body and strengthen the spirit, or find love... These miraculous remedies, which they were obtained from plants and caused a surge of feelings, they were called aphrodisiacs, in honor of the Greek goddess of love.

According to legend, the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite wore a belt with intangible values: desire, temptation and love, and this unearthly fragrance, lasting a long train, conquered both men and gods. Hence the name "aphrodisiac" appeared.


Science has provided the answer to this question. With the development of mankind, such areas as herbal medicine and aromatherapy began to develop. Essential oils are essentially natural concentrated aromas that have an effect on the central nervous system and the endocrine system.


Ester aromas through the receptors of the olfactory system enter the brain, affect the pituitary gland, which regulates the synthesis of hormones. As a result, endorphins are released into the bloodstream, causing euphoria and increasing sexual desire. But not all essential oils are so powerful...

This Valentine's Day, or for your next special anniversary, spice things up with one of these essential oils for love and romance.

How to choose essential oils?

A quality essential oil is a guarantee of success. It is very important to take into account several factors when buying:

Cost. Essential oil production is an expensive business, which is just the purchase of raw materials.

Packaging. Glass is the most appropriate material for bottles, as oils do not react with it, unlike plastic. Only the dark glass bottle protects essential oils from the harmful effects of sunlight.

Pure aroma without "enhancers". Everything is simple here, if you buy orange essential oil, it must smell like orange. And don't go after "tasty" smells, strawberry, melon, mango, watermelon, and banana essential oils don't exist. Most likely it is a mixture of normal oil and artificial fragrances.

Since ancient times, essential oils have been considered the main "elixirs of love":

1. Ylang ylang

The sweet floral scent of ylang ylang has a relaxing effect that makes it popular for romance. The exotic aroma calms anxiety and is believed to help release inhibitions.

Ylang ylang has a strong aroma, which can become overpowering, but it pairs well with bright citrus oils.
