Have you ever thought about using essential oils as an aphrodisiac? Why not? The bible told me so:
I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, on the handles of the lock. (Song of Solomon 5:5)
Aside from medical reasons, many times, both men and woman may lose their desire for intimacy due to exhaustion, stress, or occasional feelings of sadness or anxiousness. So, choosing essential oils that will help a couple to relax, while simultaneously stimulating the emotions, may be the best choice for awakening healthy intimacy.
Most “sensually inspiring” essential oils can work in part by initiating a warm sensation (by increasing blood flow), stimulating the body and arousing passion with their rich, exotic aroma of spicy or floral notes.
How do essential oils work as an aphrodisiac? Essential oils also work by activating those parts in our brain mentioned earlier, which are connected to emotion, memory and even hormones and physiologic processes. Pretty neat, huh?
Want to know which essential oils’ euphoric properties are used to enhance intimacy?
Did you know Myrrh is mentioned SEVEN times in the Song of Soloman?
“His cheeks are like a bed of spices,
Banks of scented herbs.
His lips are lilies,
Dripping liquid myrrh.” – Song of Solomon 5:13
Stay tuned, we will be talking more about essential oils and romance this week of LOVE.
