9 Aphrodisiacs Essential Oils for Love and Desire

Relationships need to be worked upon to keep the spark alive and burning. So whether you are looking for renewing that spark or starting a new one, try your hand at aphrodisiac essential oils to get that right feel and smell good too. The use of an aphrodisiac substance to increase sexual desire is an ancient art form. One of those substances is the essential oils.
We have a strong sense of smell; some sense heighten the way we feel, while some repulse us. Not all oils work in the same manner for individuals. Smell stimulates the brain nerves that control our emotional and sexual behavior, hence the right kind of smell sends out tantalizing and teasing signals, and if that is what you want, then check out the list of aphrodisiac oils and use what would work best for you.
Lavender: Lavender’s appeal lies in its fragrance which works for both men and women. It stimulates the male mind and in women, it increases the blood flow to the female sex organs creating the right mood for love.
Jasmine: When it comes to Jasmine, the half open bud is highly symbolical to a woman’s acceptance, thus is very seductive and sedating to the mind. Asian cultures have used the warm and inviting Jasmine fragrance an aphrodisiac for centuries.
Ylang Ylang: The deeply exotic elongated petals of the Ylang Ylang flowers are very stimulating and relaxing at the same time. The fragrant oil is intense and floral, thus creating a euphoric aroma. However, being a strong oil, its use must be restrained.
Rose: The sweet smelling rose has been the epitome of beauty and sensuality. Petals blossoms are usually used on newlywed’s beds to ease discomfort and increase sensuality. Rose water is a very common room freshener.
Clary Sage: Clary sage essential oil is highly effective in boosting self esteem and confidence, thereby assisting in dealing with sexual related psychological problems like frigidity and apprehensions. Clary sage oil is used to treat loss of libido.
Vanilla: Vanilla has a subtle sweet aroma that is used in women’s perfume for many years now for its aphrodisiac effects. It is believed that vanilla scents can increase the production of estrogen and testosterone in both men and women.
Sandalwood: Sandalwood is a popular aphrodisiac. Its earthy fragrance is erotic and can stimulate your mood by increasing sensuality and enhancing sexual desire. It contains certain chemicals responsible for enhanced male libido.
Patchouli: Patchouli has a bitter aroma and is not known to work for all. But for those this scent works for, work wonders. It relives stress and increases sexual desire. The patchouli fragrance has a certain wildness to it which is very appealing and sensual.
Myrrh: Myrrh essential oil is said to nourish sexual appetite hence is usually added in Ayurvedic formulation tonic to stimulate sexual urges. It works well in massage oils and diffusers.
Other aphrodisiacs are neroli, cloves, cinnamon, geranium, pine, nutmeg, ginger, agarwood, etc. As said earlier all essential oils work on a different level for individuals, they basically set the mood right by relieving any form of stress and anxiety, thus allowing for sensual pleasures to be experienced without any inhibition.
