Looking to spice it up in the bedroom? Check out these top 10 essential oils for romance, libido and fun in the bedroom. I’ll also share my DIY sensual massage oil and DIY personal lubricant too. Time for date night in…
Have you ever walked down the intimates section at the drugstore? You know where the massage oils and personal lubricants are located? Well, if you turned over those bottles and check out the ingredients you would be shocked. They typically loaded with toxic ingredients (such as parabens, petroleum-based ingredients, phenoyxethanol, glycerin, propylene glycol and chlorhexidine) that can be found in industrial cleaners.
Do you want that on your body? Or how about in your mouth… you know when things get fun in the bedroom? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Keep reading to find out how to use essential oils for romance, libido and fun in the bedroom, how to make your own DIY personal lubricant and massage oils, and where to get the best quality essential oils.
Why Do Quality Essential Oils Matter?
Think of this this way… you’re using these essential oils, massage oils, and personal lubricant on delicate body parts. While you may have never thought about it before, your skin is the largest organ in your body. So while those oils are on your skin or your delicate parts, they are getting absorbed into your bloodstream.
Not to mention, when things really get spiced up you could even end consuming them. I mean, you have heard of edible massage oil right?
So only use essential oils (here’s what I recommend) and carrier oils like coconut oil and almond oil (the base for the massage oils) that are the best quality. For essential oils, I love Young Living. They can actually be used internally. In addition, look for carrier oils that are organic and cold-pressed.
10 Essential Oils for Romance, Libido and Fun in the Bedroom
Made with coriander, ylang ylang, bergamot, jasmine and geranium, Sensation is alluringly fragrant and exotic. It’s very romantic, arousing and helps to amplify a little excitement in the bedroom.
I use it to spray bedding or pillows to set the mood, or wear as a perfume on my neck and wrists. It instantly gets the attention of my husband.
2. Black Pepper and Peppermint
Why this duo? Black Pepper gives a little heat and Peppermint cools things off. The mixture is heavenly when applied to the thighs (3 drops of Black Pepper and 3 drops of Peppermint with 6-8 drops of a carrier oil) will definitely heat things up in the bedroom.
And word to the wise, if you don’t already have coconut oil in your bedroom and bathroom – DO IT! It works amazingly as a personal lubricant, massage oil, moisturizer and so much more. Check out my blog post on the 50+ uses for coconut oil.
Forget the store-bought lubricants. They're loaded with chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives that you don't want anywhere near your body. Instead make this easy DIY Personal Lubricant that has a warming and cooling sensation. It feels amazing! Just leave it on the bedside table and use it when the mood strikes.
Add all ingredients to a 2 oz pump or dropper glass bottle.
Shake well and leave on the bedside table.
To use, shake well before use. Pour 1-2 tsp amount into the palm of the hand. Rub on body parts where you need the personal lubricant... and yes I mean those delicate parts. You'll feel a cool and warm sensation. If the sensation is too strong, dilute with carrier oil like coconut oil.
4. Ylang Ylang
5. Idaho Blue Spruce
6. Hong Kuai
Hong Kuai is a tree found in the mountain rainforests of Taiwan. It’s incredibly high in sesquiterpene content, which means Hong Kuai is like getting a boost of liquid confidence.
With its woodsy aroma, it’s perfect for men as a cologne. Here’s a great recipe to increase feelings of romance, perseverance, and confidence for men: Mix 2 drops of Hong Kuai, 1 drop of Ylang Ylang and 1 drop of Blue Spruce. Apply to thighs, neck and VitaFlex points on the feet.
Mister is a blend of sage, fennel, lavender, myrtle, peppermint, and blue yarrow in a base of sesame seed oil. It can be used as a men’s cologne and used to promote inner balance.
I often pair Mister with Idaho Blue Spruce and Ylang Ylang for an intoxicating, arousing massage oil and apply to the VitaFlex points on the feet, ankles and lower abdomen.
9. Clary Sage
Clary Sage is the equivalent to Mister but for women. It has a mild, warm herbal scent that is relaxing and helps to promote inner balance and reduce stress. It has natural phytoestrogens.
I like to combine a few drops of Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang or Sensation with a few drops of coconut oil for a sensual massage oil. Apply to the VitaFlex points on the feet, ankles and lower abdomen.
10. Lady Sclareol
Lady Sclareol is a blend of rosewood, vetiver, geranium, orange, clary sage, ylang ylang, sandalwood, sage lavender, jasmine and Idaho Tansy. It has a seductive and alluring scent for both men and women – perfect for those special moments in the bedroom.
I like to apply to my neck and wrists as a perfume (which instantly attracts my husband) and mixed with a carrier oil to a warm bath to enjoy with my husband.
Other Ideas to Spice It Up in the Bedroom
- Get in the shower and give each other a sensual body scrub with this DIY Coconut Brown Sugar Scrub. It’s a great way to exfoliate the skin too. Just be careful not to use on delicate body parts.
- Take a relaxing epsom salt bath together with this DIY Bath Salts recipe.
- Give each other a sensual massage with almond oil or fractionated coconut oil and add 3-4 drops of essential oils that help to get in the mood (like the ones I mentioned above).
