This homemade love potion works simply because it is backed up by the science of aromatherapy. Essential oils are concentrated, highly aromatic yet volatile oils, whose particles are so small that they can actually cross the blood-brain barrier.
When the essential oil molecules are inhaled, they are absorbed by the lungs and immediately transferred into the blood stream. From here, the essential oil particles are transported to the brain where they directly influence mood, behavior and the production of hormones. Essential oils can directly influence important hormones such as serotonin (the happiness hormone), as well as the reproductive hormones such as testosterone and estrogen!
Aphrodisiacs – Oils such as Jasmine, Rose and Ylang-Ylang are potent aphrodisiacs that are worn around the world by newly-wed brides to promote the feelings of love!
Jasmine can make you feel romantic or in love as it can help put people in the mood for love and enhances the libido. It is also considered as a sedative since it calms the mind, body, and soul. It brings out positive and constructive emotions, which helps with stress, anger, anxiety, and depression.
Rose is currently one of the most expensive essential oils, and for good reason. It requires an extremely large amount of rose petals to produce just a small amount of the essential oil. Rose essential oil contains properties that are beneficial for numerous women’s reproductive issues, as well as stress, anxiety, and tension. In addition, rose oil may have a positive effect on sexual dysfunction. In fact, a study conducted in 2015 found that male participants suffering from depressive disorders experienced improvement of both their depression and sexual dysfunction after being administered rose oil. For these reasons, rose is commonly considered one of the best essential oils for libido.
Ylang-Ylang oil soothes stress, anxiety, tension and sleeplessness. It boosts the libido to enhance the sensuality between couples and enhances circulation. Ylang-Ylang is one of the most decadent and sensual-smelling essential oils on the market. It has a rich, luxurious aroma that is unmistakable. It’s considered to be one of the very best essential oils for libido due to its aphrodisiac properties. In fact, a common Indonesian practice is to place Ylang-Ylang petals on the bed of newlyweds. The essential oil contains many therapeutic properties that can be beneficial for low sex drive, including reducing feelings of stress or anxiety.
