Did you know that there are a variety of flowers that act as an aphrodisiac? That's right..Mother Nature always provides, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, we have some flower-powered suggestions that will help increase libido..and help grow that desire.
Our recommendation when it comes to incorporating these cheeky flowers into your aromatherapy routine, is to add a few drops of an organic grade pure oil into a massage oil, coconut oil, or your other favorite all natural oil/fragrance free lotion. You can also try adding drops of the floral essential oils into a cool mist diffuser.
What If I Want To Make My Own Extracts?
If you want to make your own floral oils, simply take any of the flowers listed below, place into a cheesecloth, secure with a band, and place the cloth and flowers into a jar full of your preferred oil. Secure with a lid, and let sit for two weeks in a cool dark place. After the two weeks is up, remove the flowers, and enjoy!
Now that you know how to use these oils, it's time to introduce you to our top 5 flower aphrodisiacs!
Most of us are familiar with jasmine, but did you know that this dainty little flower packs a sexy punch? This flower has a very feminine & flirty essence, and is known to increase sexual desire in both men and women. Is it hot in here to you guys?
We all love the smell of vanilla, but apparently, men especially do! According to research, the scent of vanilla creates more arousal in men than any other scent. Excuse me while I go rub a vanilla pod all over my body.
Now, us ladies are also affected by this magical scent, but for a different reason. Vanilla triggers a sense of calm, safety, and warmth, helping us to sweep any irritabilities under the rug..right along with all of those man child statements. Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about, just because it's the month of teddy bears and fearing couple-filled restaurants.
If you're still not turned on by my glorious descriptions, then maybe it's time to talk about rose. If you're looking for a bit more magic in the bedroom, or if you want an extra umph while devouring your pint of vegan ice cream, look no further. Not only is rose the universal symbol of love, but it will definitely increase your sex drive, and lower tension. Not to mention, it's edible..just in case you would rather sprinkle it over your ice cream..no judgement here.
Need to clear your mind so that you can fully relax and unwind? A bit of ylang ylang will help you do just that. This magical flower increases sexual drive, encourages attraction (whatever that means), and supports the circulatory system. Say what? Now that's a win, win, win!
Neroli has an intense orange blossom fragrance. It's great for relaxing, alleviating headaches, and invigorates the mind. What better flower to end with, when it comes to a sexy night in.
Take your massage and love making to a new level, and try incorporating flower aphrodisiacs into your routine.
