Valentine’s Day is almost here! Store aisles are littered with splashes of red and pink, chocolates and teddy bears. If you’re trying to find a special way to celebrate with your honey, essential oils can be that extra special touch to bring your evening to the next level. In addition to helping tie a memory to a specific smell, essential oils can also help promote relaxation, romance, and sensuality. Which brings us to our new blend, Be Mine.
Meet Be Mine
Created especially for Valentine’s Day, Be Mine has a sweet, zesty, floral scent that brings a little spice to your day. It combines traditionally romantic oils with fresh citrus to help create a romantic atmosphere, support mental health, help boost mood, calm nerves, and of course, promote sensuality. Let’s take a look at what each oil brings to the blend.
- Bergamot: This light, citrus oil offers not only a fresh aroma but also helps boost your mood and create an uplifting atmosphere. It’s well-known for its ability to help calm nerves and ease anxiety. This makes Bergamot great for helping you relax after a long or stressful day, get out of your head, and enjoy the time with your special someone.
- Orange Essence: Another fresh and citrusy oil, Orange Essence offers its intense orange aroma to the blend. It’s uplifting like Bergamot, but also has an energizing quality (something you know you’ll want for the night ahead). It helps ease worry and tension so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
- Patchouli: Often found in romantic blends, Patchouli brings a rich, earthy aroma. It’s grounding, relaxing and soothing… just what you’ll want when you’re setting the mood.
- Damiana: Widely known for its aphrodisiac properties, Damiana has been used in Mexican folk medicine as a love potion. So, of course, it belongs in our Be Mine blend! It’s calming, uplifting and relaxing, while simultaneously helping you focus. In turn, this helps get you in the right kind of mood for intimacy.
- Sandalwood: This sweet woodsy oil completes Be Mine with its soft, relaxing fragrance. Sandalwood helps relax the mind and body while easing worries.
Essential Oils as Aphrodisiacs
So you might be wondering how exactly essential oils can help you in the bedroom. Because no, they won’t magically boost your libido or give you the sex drive of someone in their twenties. However, essential oils are wonderful for helping ease some of the underlying issues that might be negatively affecting your sex life like stress, confidence, communication, and fatigue. By using oils or blends like Be Mine, they can help promote relaxation, ease worries, and boost energy, all of which can help you “get in the mood”.
And even if things are going great in the bedroom, essential oils can provide something extra to let your special someone know you put extra time and thought into creating a romantic atmosphere. Additionally, scents are strongly tied to memory, so any time you use a specific blend for your intimate moments, you can tie that scent to the memories and experiences.
How to Set The Mood
