Precautions to Keep in Mind When Using Romantic Essential Oils and Blends
Essential oils are concentrated extracts. A little goes a long way. Keep that in mind when making your romantic essential oil blends. Never add too much oil at once.
You can adjust the quantities of the oils that you add but it is best to do this slowly, one drop at a time. Even one drop more or less can change the aroma of the blend.
You will see that most of the diffuser blend recipes include a drop or two of bergamot essential oil. Bergamot itself is not an aphrodisiac essential oil but it is an important ingredient in romantic oil blends. This is because most seductive essential oils have strong floral aromas and when combined in a blend, the resultant scent can be overpoweringly sweet and flora. Bergamot has a fresh, citrusy aroma, which cuts through the floral aromas and balances them out so they work their magic without being over the top.
Do not interchange the recipes. The romantic diffuser blends should only be used in a diffuser. Do NOT use them for topical applications. Most of them contain bergamot oil, which belongs to the citrus family and citrus essential oils can have contradictory reactions if you have sensitive skin.
Carrier oils are a crucial ingredient when making your own massage oils using aphrodisiac essential oils. Essential oils are too concentrated to use on the skin by themselves. They must always be diluted, preferably with a carrier oil before any massaging into the body.
This is the most exciting part! You’ve made your own romantic essential oil blend. Now how are you going to use it?
Check out the many ways you can use your favorite essential oils to get you in the mood:
Put a few drops of your preferred romantic essential oil blend in a diffuser and let those heady aromas waft around the room.
Collect a few pinecones and make your own scented pinecones using either a single aphrodisiac essential oil or a romantic essential oil blend. The scented pinecones act as a décor item while subtly emanating seductive aromas into the space around you.
Light a few scented candles around the room. You can either buy these or if you like to make your own, here’s an easy way to make your own beeswax candles with essential oils. Simply replace the oil with your chosen romantic essential oil blend.
Use that massage oil that you’ve made to build up the passion with a sensuous massage. A massage oil that contains essential oils enhances the benefit of a massage. It works to relax both the giver and receiver while slowly building up the passion.
You don’t have to use your romantic essential oil blends only at home. A bottle of your favorite blend and diffuser are easy items to pack away in your baggage when you are going away on a short romantic getaway or on your honeymoon.
