Romance surrounds us this time of year. There’s a wonderful spirit of love in the air. It’s nostalgic yet hopeful.
Candy, chocolates and roses galore while pinks and reds fill the store shelves; Reservations are being made at the finest restaurants and weekend getaways and surprises are in the making.
Valentine’s Day is that special occasion when couples set aside time just for their partner. It’s a time to celebrate your love and commitment to one another while reconnecting and creating a renewed spark together.
Since I LOVE essential oils and because I believe they can enhance the experience of the day, I’ve put together these five LOVE inspired essential oils perfect for setting the mood. Whether you’re going big or small this Valentine’s Day these essential oils are a great addition to any of your Valentine’s Day plans.
The rose is the most common flower associated with love. If you don’t believe me just sit outside a florist on Valentine’s Day and note how many people walk out the door with a dozen of roses in their hands. Yes, if you want romance, rose essential oil is a great place to start. It’s strong yet sweet floral scent is romantic and known to stir up feelings of desire and love. To use, just dab a few drops behind the ears and on wrists and inhale. I will note that rose essential oil is very pricey, but if you do decide to spend the money it’s worth every cent!
Geranium essential oil is a favorite choice of mine, especially on Valentine’s Day because of its sweet floral scent. It is an affordable alternative to Rose essential oil and to the untrained nose, a very similar aroma. Geranium is wonderful for the skin and used as a perfume it can inspire peace and calm.
Neroli essential oil has a wonderful citrus scent. Similar to orange blossoms, Neroli is used often during wedding ceremonies because it’s known to stimulate romantic feelings. Diffusing Neroli in the home can set the stage for a romantic and playful Valentine’s Day.
Jasmine essential oil has been used for years for its aphrodisiac properties. It’s floral, exotic fragrance is said to arouse feelings of passion and desire. Who couldn’t use a little of that on Valentine’s Day? Mix a few drops with a carrier oil and massage over the heart.
Sandalwood essential oil is another great oil that will inspire love on Valentine’s Day. This oil is perfect for men thanks to its woodsy exotic scent. It’s a great oil to inhale to ease the body and mind into a relaxation. Take a whiff and let the stress melt away so you can focus on your loved one on this special day.
Can I just say this is one of my favorites? I love the smell of Ylang Ylang!! If you’re looking for an aphrodisiac, Ylang Ylang essential oil is the way to go. This sensual oil can enhance your sexual experience while also balancing emotion and boosting mood. Combine 2 drops Ylang Ylang with 2 drops Sandalwood essential oil to create a massage oil your partner will likely never forget!
Clary Sage essential oil is one of those love-it or hate-it oils. With its herbaceous woodsy scent, it won’t appeal to everyone. Clary Sage oil has powerful benefits for those that are drawn to it. Promoting euphoria, Clary Sage oil can boost creativity and inspirational thoughts. Add that to the bedroom and WOW!
Lavender essential oil promotes relaxation, so if you’re tired and stressed and don’t feel like celebrating anything, this is the oil you need on Valentine’s Day! Add a few drops to your diffuser to create a relaxing setting that will calm you both and enjoy a relaxing time together.
