Aromatherapy for Lovers

18 Essential Oils That Will Improve Your Sex Life

Aromatherapy has been used for over 5000 years from Ancient Egypt to Modern Europe in the 1920's and 1930's where French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse coined the term aromatherapy. Aromatherapy has often been used in sexual practices and rituals throughout many cultures and time periods.

Aromatherapy has been used to attract lovers, heal a relationship; it has been used in the art of seduction and mentioned in the Kama Sutra.

Cleopatra was known to have used a special blend of rose, cardamom, and cinnamon to seduce Marc Anthony. Basil was used by young Italian women to charm and bewitch potential lovers, ancient Arabic manuals giving advice on sexual matters refer to Black Pepper for its erotic qualities, Ginger was used by the Romans for its sexual enhancement characteristics, an Italian princess used Neroli to fragrance her gloves and bathing water, and Tantric disciples smeared Sandalwood on their bodies while celebrating sexual ecstasy.

Our sense of smell is tied directly to the part of the brain that is linked to memory and emotion. Research studies have proven that different scents can actually produce different emotions and reactions; they can make us feel a certain way.

These essential oils can be used in diffusers, burners, candles, incense, scent rings, scented potpourri, added to bath water or added to massage oils to create a sexually enticing atmosphere in your bedroom and throughout your entire home. These aromatherapy scents can be used alone or in special blends to create the type of sexual atmosphere and sexual response you want.
