What is aromatherapy

What is aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the alchemy of extracting essential oils from plants and flowers, including the barks, flower stems, nuts, and using them in powerful combinations and natural recipes to assist everyday health, wellbeing and even pleasure. 

Plant and flower power is still rocking the world after 1000’s of years and has been used by kings, queens, pharaohs, gods, goddesses and are even known today as a popular choice for natural alternative medicine and sensual stimulation.

Each oil brings unique and precious gifts. For example, a rose can help to open the heart for more connected love making, intimacy and sacred pillow talk. Essential oils like ylang ylang, ginger, rose, clary sage neroli and jasmine to name a few, are said to have aphrodisiac and erogenous properties helping to switch your libido on and get you more sexually active – boosting your body image

How to use essential oils

Essential oils guide

Scent is a personal thing, so play around with what works for you and your partner. You can use essential oils for overall health as well as sexual health and there are various ways aromatherapy can be introduced:

1. Directly on the body as a sensual massage oil (avoiding genitals). Also, take time to awaken your partner’s sensitivity. Explore different pressures and speeds though conscious connected touch. 

2. Inhalation of airborne essential oils, for example aromatherapy scented candles and diffusers, or adding a few drops to an oil burner in the bedroom.

3. Add 4-5 drops to your bath (dilute in a tablespoon of milk first). Soak and receive the benefits. Even better to share with your beloved.

4. Sprinkle a drop or two on the bed sheets (1 drop can go a long way – they can be strong smelling and too much might end in a headache and an early night!) 

5. Dab on the wrists as perfume and set male or female senses alive (use a pre-blended mixture).
