Al and I are romantics at heart and just love the month of February.

Hey, what am I saying? We love each month!!

Throughout history, sweet smelling scents have been used to lure your beloved to you.

Blame it all on Mythology - Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love. The source for the word Aphrodisiac.

An aphrodisiac is a substance used to increase sexual desire or enjoyment.

There are several essential oils that bring about wonderful euphoric feelings and others when applied to the skin give wonderful sensations.

The fun thing with essential oils is the fact you can use them subtly and see wonderful results in your relationships.

You can use essential oils in perfumes, room scenting, bathing (including hot tubs), in the bedroom (on the sheets and pillows) and massage oils.

The most commonly known and used Aphrodisiac and romantic essential oils are: Jasmine, Neroli, Rose, Ylang ylang, Sandalwood

Other oils known to arouse: Black Pepper, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Clove, Patchouli, Pine and Vetiver.

Mix a few of these blends up (do it soon, so they can blend well) for use on your next romantic encounter.

Cedarwood - 2 drops
Clary Sage - 2 drops

Romantic Massage # 2

lotion 1 - 2 tablespoons.

We have a couple of premixed blends you may want to use for diffusing including Sensual Blend and Exotic Blend. Our Aphrodisiac Massage Blend is very popular all year long.

Of course blending your own blends are always fun and exciting too. Here are a couple more! Have Fun!!!
