Essential Oils for Romance

You know what time of year it is—Romance Time! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, right now is the best time to talk about how essential oils can help you and your partner have a magical, romantic evening together.

Scents can play a powerful role when you are intentionally working to set a positive and passionate atmosphere. Whether you diffuse, apply as a personal fragrance, use in a sensual bath or massage blend, keep these essential oils in mind to achieve that sexy, feel-good ambiance you want!

Rose Absolute & Otto

One of the most famous and recognizable symbols of love, the rose, is the perfect start to this list! No matter what Rose choice you can manage (the Absolute, Otto, or Otto 10%), this wonderfully soothing and relaxing aroma is sure to enhance your romance plans.

Enjoy a lovely bath by adding 2 drops of Rose Absolute and 3 drops of Sandalwood Australian to 2 tablespoons of unscented body wash with half a cup of Epsom salt.   

Ylang Ylang Complete & Extra

It’s hard to get in the mood for romance when you’re dealing with day to day worry and stress piling up in your mind. Thankfully, we can turn to Ylang Ylang whose cheerful and exotic scent can take us out of the doom and gloom and into a sunny and positive mindset. This popular aphrodisiac works great as an addition to bath and massage blends. Make sure to dilute it in a carrier oil and remember—just a little bit of this oil is needed to go a long way. It is incredibly intense and can overpower softer smelling essential oils very easily.

Sandalwood Australian & Indian

This classic, soft, woodsy aroma is often cherished by both men and women. It helps to relax the mind and body, making it the perfect choice for an intimate evening. It can perk up your spirits while clearing the mind. So let go of any negative emotions holding you back and help yourself fully commit to the special moment with Sandalwood.

This famously recognizable aphrodisiac increases feelings of romance and desire. Jasmine Absolute can uplift the mood by helping to ease away feelings of tension and stress. It is also known to help bolster feelings of self-confidence. And when you feel happy and confident, that sexy, sensual woman can shine through!

Time for a romantic bath! Mix one drop each of Jasmine Absolute, Sandalwood Indian, and Orange Sweet in a tablespoon of unscented body wash or bubble bath. The pour under warm running water and enjoy.

Made specifically to set that perfect mood for couples, our Sensual blend is the perfect oil to reconnect with your partner and reignite the love spark!

Diffuse or use in a massage (diluted in a carrier oil) to promote togetherness and add some romance. The romantic qualities of Sensual will awaken passions with its exotic blend of floral and woody aromas.

Is this a definitive list of all essential oils that can spark romance? Of course not! Depending on you and your partner’s personal preferences, this list is very flexible. You may not enjoy floral oils so much and instead choose citrusy or even spicy oils instead. And that is A-OK!

  1. The Sensual blend has been on my radar for a little while. Interested in hearing what others have thought of it!

  2. I understand that there is no way to include all of the EOs that have this use – But why is Cinammon Cassia not mentioned? Everywhere else it offers up that scent, particularly for the attraction of males.. Am I missing something?

    1. You’re not missing anything at all, Kate! This blog is a selection of a few of our favorite EOs and blends for romance, but there are absolutely more, including Cinnamon Cassia 🙂

  3. Being 30wks pregnant with our 5th, things have been slow in this department. I’m going to give this a try and hopefully get things back on track!! Thanks!

  4. Rose Absolute really has been a huge help to me in this arena along with Neroli and Clary Sage (I have to stick to breastfeeding friendly oils). Blend and diffuse and I’m ready to go in just a few minutes

  5. I can’t wait to try out some of these blends. They sound wonderful. Jasmine Absolute is on my wish list but it’s tough to get past the price.

  6. My wife has been wanting neroli, Sandler pod and jasmine all mentioned here. I guess here is another reason to get them for her

  7. I love the smell of sensual! I diffuse it as well as use it in a massage oil blend. I will have to try this recipe as well!

  8. Sensual has become a go to for diffusing in our bedroom at night. I wasnt sure if it would be to feminine but it’s the perfect balance of both and has been great for us.

  9. Could we use Sensual to make a linen spray? This blend is my go to for romance…I usually drop on cotton and put near the fireplace in winter. Things heat up nicely. 😉

  10. I really want to try Jasmine but it’s far out of my price range. Would you ever offer a diluted Jasmine like you have diluted Rose Otto to make it more affordable?

  11. This recipe sounds delightful! I cannot wait to try it! I absolutely love Jasmine, sandalwood and rose on their own so I can only imagine how great the blend will be! Thanks

  12. I must try this recipe, it looks heavenly. Somehow I missed the fact that PT sells Jasmine, and not just any Jasmine but Jasmine Sambac. I will have to place an order right away For Valentines this year I mixed Cardamom, Yuzu, Vanilla and Ylang Ylang, and it turned out gorgeous!

  13. I made a massage blend for Valentines Day with seven oils: rose, jasmine, indian sandalwood, bergamot, cardamom, vetiver, and clove. it came out divine and will be treasured

  14. made an amazing massage blend for valentines day, with rose, jasmine, indian sandalwood, bergamot,cardamom, vetiver and clove. it came out divine

  15. Love this post! Two of my absolute favorite oils are Rose and Sandalwood. (Of course they would be two of the most expensive!) I use Rose in my facial serum and Sandalwood in a roll on perfume blend. Both are intoxicating!!
