Essential Oils for Love and romance

Updated: Feb 11, 2022


Essential oils are not only pleasing aromas used in cosmetics and fragrances but are also associated with love and romance and are known to foster feelings of sensuality, harmony, relaxation, and peace.


I know you are wondering, how does this all work? Well, inhaling the essential oils is the oldest and fastest way to get the oils in your system, aromatherapy. This happens when you breathe in the essential oils and the hairs in your nostrils with receptors sending a signal to the olfactory bulb in your limbic system.


The limbic system is where you will find your hypothalamus which helps stimulate the hormone in our bodies. These hormones regulate memory mood and

respiratory systems.


Therefore, using the appropriate essential oils with stimulating properties may produce a response in the limbic system and hypothalamus which controls sex drive, energy levels, and hormone production.


Make sure to set the mood for Valentine's or any other romantic occasion with the right essential oil. It also, wouldn't hurt to find out which scene and oils your partner would prefer, especially if they are allergic to many things.
