With romance in the air, I have been inspired to share a few top LOVE inspired essential oils.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to increase sensuality and libido.
This is not a new concept, but it may be if you’re new to using essential oils.
Aside from their fragrance, EO’s can help to set a romantic mood, boost confidence, arouse the senses, create a more pleasant environment, calm nervous tension, balance hormones, increase desire, and are a perfect addition in the amour department.
Our limbic system in our brain is associated with memory, emotion, and learning. Therefore, when we smell an essential oil it will have a powerful impact on us physically and emotionally.
Read through the list of oils below – dab on your ‘pure-fume’ of choice, fire up the diffuser and let the aroma fill the air.
R O S E
The oil of the heart chakra. The blooming floral fragrance of pure rose oil brings about feelings of love, care, and comfort. Not only does rose oil support women’s reproductive health, the calming aroma also creates an environment of relaxation that fosters intimacy. It improves circulation, has a tonic action on the emotional heart, and has soothing aphrodisiac qualities.
J A S M I N E
Known as “the oil of sexual purity and balance’.
Jasmine enhances mood and energy. This essential oil is particularly good for women.
Apply Jasmine topically as a pure-fume :: apply to inside of your wrists, behind your ears, and on other pulse points or sensual massage
Pure-fume : 4 Jasmine + 4 Frankincense + 4 Wild Orange in a 10ml roller topped with FCO.

Balancing & Soothing
Clary sage is known for its affinity with women’s menstruation issues, but the unique musky, herbal scent is also an aphrodisiac that boosts libido. When libido is low due to hormonal shifts clary sage has a balancing effect.
d ō T E R R A P A S S I O N B L E N D
Passion (inspiring blend) will help to rekindle feelings of excitement, passion and joy. A drop of this blend over your heart to bring uplifting and magnetic energy your way. Wear as your usual ‘pure-fume’, diffuse, drop on bed sheets or apply on upper thigh.
Y L A N G Y L A N G
This is the oil of the “inner child.” It affects emotional balance, and the cardiovascular and hormonal systems. Ylang Ylang is known as one of the most powerful essential oil aphrodisiacs because it influences sexual energy and enhances relationships. Ylang Ylang can help with impotence and a low libido because, like rose oil, it supports the circulatory system. As a natural relaxant it helps to calm and unwind – reducing anxiety and improving your sex drive.
N E R O L I
Researchers found that the inhalation of Neroli can help relive hormonal symptoms and increase sexual desire.
A helpful option when libido is low due to hormones or stress.
H A W A I I A N S A N D A L W O O D
This essential oil promotes emotional openness. Sandalwood might not be your first pick for essential oils for love, but its warm, woody aroma soothes nerves and promotes sexuality, especially in men. Spritz your linens to set the scene with this exotic aroma.
P A T C H O U L I
An intimate evening doesn’t require heavy floral musks! The rich, earthy scent of patchouli is deeply relaxing before bedtime while helping to rekindle desire. Great mixed with wild orange.
