Remember those days when you first met your significant other and couldn't keep your hands off each other?
What the heck happened to those days?
I'll tell you what happened...Life happened. Hormones happened. Kids happened. Work, stress, cleaning, mortgages, time happened. Many things have happened since those carefree, sexually charged, passion filled, romantic days.
And that's good, because all of those things have enriched your life. But they shouldn't be a death sentence to your sex life. I mean, I'm no relationship expert, and I'm only 2 years into my marriage, but I'm pretty sure sex is important for a healthy relationship.
Thankfully there are things you can do to bring back that spark.
It starts with getting a night free from all that other stuff. Get a babysitter, put your phones on silent, throw all the dirty laundry in the closet and close the door.
Next step, get your oils out.
Essential oils can have a huge impact on setting the mood, supporting your sexy hormones, and that "I don't have enough energy to wash my hair, let alone get frisky in the bedroom" attitude.
Here are the best oils to start with:
This beautiful oil has a lovely floral fragrance, definitely one of my faves. I love combining it with bergamot in the diffuser. It has been used for centuries in wedding ceremonies and as a powerful aphrodisiac, makes sense right? It is also known for lessening tension and stress, which we all know nothing gets in the way of getting in the mood more than that daunting 'To Do' list running through your mind.
Blend for Women
This is a beautiful essential oil blend of Bergamot Peel, Ylang Ylang Flower, Patchouli Leaf, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Jasmine Flower Absolute, Cinnamon Bark, Labdanum, Vetiver Root, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Cocoa Bean Absolute, and Rose Flower. This is an excellent perfume for women, so skip that chemical laden perfume you've been using and give this stuff a try. It's also known to entice and intrigue the senses. Rub a drop on your wrists, back of neck and pulse points on a daily basis. You'll fall in love all over again!
This wonderful oil is like sunshine in a bottle. It is energizing and can help lift the mood. I know for me nothings happening in the bedroom if I'm feeling down in the dumps.
Cinnamon has been known for its aphrodisiac abilities for ages. It has been used to enhance appetite, both in the kitchen and in the bedroom if you know what I mean (no I don't mean late night binging in bed). Cinnamon essential oil is the oil of sexual harmony and supportive in embracing your own physical attractiveness (which we all know is key for getting in the mood).
This is a 'hot' oil and can be irritating to the skin. Be sure to dilute with a carrier oil. Rub on the big toe, known as the sexual hormone reflexology point. Who knew feet could be sexy after all!
Because it's difficult to get in the mood when your stomach won't stop rumbling. Enough said!
It's time you Stop all those excuses and start oiling up. Everyone responds differently so experiment and see what oils work best for you. Trust me, your sex life is worth it!
