Sexual Aromatherapy

While we have been somewhat seriously studying and experimenting with herbal aphrodisiacs for some twenty years, our knowledge and experience in the realm of sexual aromatherapy is severely limited. It's been more like a hobby to us - a hobby that we can totally ignore for very long stretches of time. That's about to change once again as working on this website has reminded us of how fun and fascinating aromatherapy can be. We include sexual aromatherapy here first because our relative ignorance on the subject is no reason to totally leave it out, and secondly, because we just might be able to steer you in the right direction. Here are a few basics that may save you a little time in money should you decided to explore sexual aromatherapy:

1. There's aromatherapy, and then there's aromatherapy. Technically speaking, air freshners and scented candles, etc. can be used for a very basic form of aromatherapy - your brain responding to certain smells. However, that's like saying artificial flavoring is just as good as the real food. The same thing basically holds true for some brands of essential oils. They may smell like the real thing, but that's where any effectiveness starts and ends. For true aromatherapy, or what some might call medicinal quality essential oils, you must take pains to insure that the oils you are buying are 100% pure. Why? Well, for starters, aromatherapy is not limited just to your sense of smell. Much of it involves putting the essential oil on your skin where it is absorbed into your body through the skin - usually through massage - and only ther highest quality essential oil will do the job right. If you can't afford a specific floral essence, look for a less expensive essence that might perform the same job, but don't cheat yourself on quality.

2. While we tend to think of sexual aromatherapy as simply something that will help set or enhance the mood, there's much more to it than that. Aromatherapy can be used both to enhance sex and sexuality and to help combat sexual dysfunction. There are formulas in aromatherapy, for example, that can enhance orgasms, increase desire or help to eliminate impotence or frigidity. However, most of these formulas require application for days, if not weeks, before any benefit may be seen.

3. Most importantly, at least to us, is the simple fact that what works for you might not work at all on your partner - especially when it comes to the pure smell. That may seem like a no-brainer, but many aromatherapy books group all sexually related oils into one huge category, making no distinction as to whether they are most effective for men or for women. But, think for a moment. Assuming you are heterosexual, are you going to be turned on by a smell that has the sexual odor of someone of the same sex?

Part of the problem here is that most essential oils "casually" smell great, or at least okay, to both sexes, so there simply doesn't appear to be any need to distinqish the oils for the sex being targeted. However, try this simple experiment. After you have bought five or six essential oils for their sex enhancing properties, close your eyes and have your partner hold the open bottles beneath your nose one at a time. You'll likely find yourself being attracted to certain smells because when focusing directly and solely on the smells you suddenly realize that some have a smell that for someone reason seem sexually related to the opposite sex. Odds are, your partner will choose the oils you didn't.

You can playfully experiment with essential oils this way, but when it comes to specific formulas that are aimed at, for example, helping ease a sexual dysfunction, stick carefully to the formula recommended.

4. To begin a hopefully fun, fascinating and pleasurable experience exploring the world of sexual aromatherapy, consider starting with some of these frequently recommended oils:
Clary Sage
Note: You'll find that most of the oils we've suggested are some of the most commonly used oils in aromatherapy for a very wide variety of purposes. This will help keep your costs down if you'd like to explore using aromatherapy for other, non-sexual uses.
