Sensual Essential Oils & Tips For Valentine's Day

For many couples, Valentine's Day is one day of the year when they want to share a special time and show their partner how much they love and care for them.

To celebrate the occasion, millions of cards, flowers, chocolates and love letters are given every year. Romantic dates at exotic venues are another way that some people choose to show their significant others how much they value them.

However, this approach doesn't work for everyone. 

Many people get overwhelmed by the stress of trying to organise something special. Whisking your partner away on a surprise two-week-long romantic holiday may seem like a good idea for Valentine's Day but, in reality, I don't think this is a practical approach for most.

Seductive Essential Oils

This Valentine's Day, why not try something different? Dim the lights put some seductive essential oils in a vaporiser and discover for yourself what a great tool aromatherapy is to enhance romance. By staying at home with the one you love (plus a few alluring essential oils) you'll enjoy a far more intimate experience than any meal in a crowded restaurant could bring you.

Beyond just aroma, essential oils can have a profound effect on the emotional centre of the brain whether they enter the bloodstream through the skin or are inhaled. Keep in mind that your sense of smell is linked to your brain in a more direct way than any of your other senses.

Since the days of the ancient Egyptians, fragrant oils have been used to enhance health, beauty, fertility, virility and of course, love. So, which essential oils are the best to arouse the passions within?

The calmness and serenity that frankincense essential oil instils will help to dispel the day-to-day worries that so often pour cold water onto passionate thoughts. An excellent way to experience the benefits of this oil would be to give your partner a massage with our divinely scented Frankincense & Palmarosa Massage Balm.


Useful in the treatment of stress, anxiety and nervous tension. It has a mild aphrodisiac effect and is helpful where stress and tension are getting in the way of sexual fulfilment.


Has a beautiful, delicate citrus and sensual aroma that calms and arouses at the same time. Victorian brides would wear a sprig of neroli (the orange blossom) in their headdress and also carry it in the bridal bouquet to help calm nerves, as well as to stimulate the libido on the wedding night! A spritz of our delectable Neroli & Rosewood Eau de Toilette might be just what's needed to set the mood.


With its citrus, floral and woody aroma, has a calming effect on the mind, promotes feelings of optimism, boosts self-esteem and is a mood lifter.

The oil has aphrodisiac properties and is particularly appropriate in the treatment of frigidity. Using this oil will help to create a sensual atmosphere.

A deep and mysterious and can unlock the hidden depths of your passion! 

It has a traditional role as an aphrodisiac and as a remedy for frigidity. For those of a certain generation its sweet, earthy aroma will often trigger happy memories of the 1960's. Patchouli will be forever associated with hippies and free love!

It is an important addition to our seductively fragranced Sensual range of Bath Soak, Shower Gel and our vegan body moisturiser Sensual Body Lotion.

Ylang Ylang

Has an excellent reputation as an aphrodisiac for both men and women, relaxing inhibitions and dispelling stress while at the same time being arousing. 

It can harmonise the emotional and sensual parts of our being, releasing the fear of sensuality. 

Apart from being an essential ingredient in our Sensual range, it also stars in our Orange & Ylang Ylang Massage Balm.


Bunches of red roses are synonymous with Valentine's Day, and for good reason. It is surely the most feminine of oils, with a powerfully seductive and sensual action. 

It is a renowned treatment for sexual dysfunction. It has a balancing and deeply relaxing effect on the mind and body.

Clary Sage

An aphrodisiac, that relieves nervous tension and promotes a feeling of euphoria. It can be helpful where frigidity is clearly connected to stress and tension. Our Lavender & Clary Sage Massage Balm will instil a deep sense of blissful relaxation. You could also try relaxing in our Before Bed Bath - infused with calming lavender, clary sage and vetiver. 

In India, vetiver is known as the "Oil of Tranquillity" due to its relaxing, calming properties on the mind, but it also strengthens, nurtures and revitalises the body.

It is used as an aphrodisiac where there is a clear correlation between impotence and stress.

Now you know all the most seductive scents, what should you do with them? Well, here are some suggestions of how best to obtain the maximum benefit of these sensual essential oils.

Give a Sensual Massage

Prepare a sensual massage oil for your partner using any one or combination of the above essential oils. Combine your chosen essential oils with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond.

Gently glide the massage oil across your partner's body. The most effective sensual areas are the soles of the feet, behind the knee, across the lower part of the stomach, palms, lower back, ear lobes and the temples of the face.

Keep your movements slow, gentle and most of all loving, always moving your hands or motion towards the heart.

Create a Romantic Ambience

A beautiful way of enjoying the benefits of these essential oils as an aphrodisiac is by inhalation.

You can burn the oils in an aromatherapy oil burner. Add about 20 drops to the oil burner and allow the scent to fill your home with the scent.

If you don't own an oil burner, placing the same blend on a tissue and putting on a radiator will have the same effect.

Simply inhaling from a tissue can be equally as effective.

An Indulgent Bath

A bath time either alone or shared can be used to relax, remove inhibitions and calm the mind.

Pour a good glug of Oleo's Before Bed Bath or Sensual Bath Soak under running water. Slip into a seductive mood by luxuriating in steamy foaming waters containing the relaxing, seductive aromas of carefully selected essential oils.

Seductive essential oils are a great way to get into the mood and spice up your love life - enjoy
