your partner is into it, and you just aren’t feeling it. Let me be the first to tell you that this is completely normal and nothing to be ashamed of. It seriously happens to pretty much everyone at some point. I know I certainly have! In my case I married a man 6 years my junior and he apparently has a high testosterone level because there is never a time when he isn’t in the mood or quickly can get in the mood! I, at 43 and starting perimenopause, sometimes find that I just can’t reciprocate, and it leaves me feeling guilty. There are tons of tools on the market you can use to help spice things up, but beware of things like over the counter lubricants and such because there are so many toxins in them that you really don’t want in your body! Here’s where essential oils come in!
Intimacy and Essential Oils
There is a whole list of essential oils out there that are good for intimacy. I will introduce a few here, but keep I mind that there are many more, and you may find something else completely different that works for you! The olfactory system works in mysterious ways when it comes to triggering memories and how your body responds to them. Maybe something like Siberian fir drives you CRAZY because you and your partner had a memorable evening in the woods.
Get to it already, Dani! Give me those recipes!
Sheesh, okay, okay! Look at you getting your panties all in a bunch! Let’s be real, you don’t want to hear about my intimacy issues, you want to see how to improve yours and bring some spice back to the bedroom!
Attract Him: 3 drops doTERRA Passion, Whisper, or ylang ylang + fractionated coconut oil (FCO) in a 5 ml roller bottle. Wear as cologne or perfume.
Get it Going: 3 drops each of sandalwood, wild orange, and ylang ylang + FCO in a 5 ml roller bottle. Inhale, roll blend on pulse points, lower abdomen, and inside of upper thighs, or simply put 2 drops of each oil in a diffuser.
“Attention” issues: 10 drops Slim & Sassy, 2 drops peppermint in a veggie cap or in a shot glass of water. (Side effects may include “standing at attention.”)
Endurance for him: 3 drops each of rosemary and sandalwood + FCO in a 5 ml roller bottle. Roll on “family jewels.”
Endurance for her: 3 drops geranium + FCO in a 5 ml roller bottle. Roll around “special spot.”
Endurance for both: use Lifelong Vitality and Mito2Max daily supplements.
Lubrication and Massage Oil: 2 drops each lavender, geranium, ylang ylang + FCO or desired carrier oil in a 15 ml dropper bottle. Apply where and when needed.
But Where Do I Start?
You may want to start with the Aromatouch Diffused kit. Contains 8 great essential oils and blends, PLUS fractionated coconut oil and a Petal diffuser. It also includes the FREE enrollment packet. This kit includes 5 ml bottles of:
Melaleuca (tea tree)
doTERRA On Guard
Once you’ve added this value packed kit, you’ll also want to pick up the other items listed in the recipes: Slim & Sassy, sandalwood, ylang ylang, bergamot, geranium, doTERRA Passion, rosemary, vetiver, and Whisper. Then add in your daily Lifelong Vitality and Mito2Max supplements.
