*Don't worry it doesn't involve eating any slimy oysters!* #ihateoysters
Valentine's Day is just around the corner.
Wanna find a natural product to help get your significant other, and yourself, in the mood?
How about 5?
You'll be using some of the most natural and potent substances found on earth!
I'm talking about inhaling plant and flower oils. Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using plant oils and minerals to aid in both emotional and physical healing. It is used alongside other practices such as massages, baths, yoga, tai chi, and other activities meant to relax and soothe the body and soul.
Aromatherapy is also associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love, fertility and all things to do with sensuality and sexuality. Therefore, it’s no surprise that many of the essential oils used for aromatherapy can also be used as aphrodisiacs to get you and your partner in the mood. *whoot woo*
These oils are natural, safe, and allow for a mind-blowing experience that you and your partner will never forget.
Before we dive into oils that help get you in the mood, you should understand just how essential oils affect your body.
The scents in these oils travel throughout the body using a neurological pathway that bypasses the blood brain barrier.
Then they come in contact with the limbic system, located at the back of the brain, and is associated with learning, memory, and emotions. The smells can have a powerful effect on the body by inducing memories and certain feelings.
You may have noticed this when you smell something and are instantly reminded of something in your childhood, or when tasting a food that reminds you of a specific person and the way they smelled or an experience you shared.
These powerful connections can push the body into a state of sadness, anger, happiness, or in this case, passion.
The following essential oil scents are those that prompt thoughts and feelings of passion and sensuality, thereby successfully putting people in the mood:
There is no need to get fancy here.
You can simply open up a bottle of whatever scent helps to get your mojo flowing, and take a few deep breaths. Then hand it over to your partner and get them to do the same.
Or, if you want to make sure it doesn't wear off, put several drops in a diffuser, and really set the mood!
