4 Seductive DIY Aromatherapy Valentine’s Day Ideas

Looking for a way to spend Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart that doesn’t involve reservations days in advance, an expensive meal out, or struggling into a slinky dress and heels in the dead of winter? Treat your beloved and yourself to a warm, seductive evening at home with the help of essential oils. Here are four ideas and eight recipes for valentine's day essential oil blends, massage oils, perfumes and more that you can make to personalize a romantic evening at home.

1. Love Is in the Air

Sure, soft candlelight and romantic music are important, but you’ll also want to set the mood by arousing this key body part early on: the olfactory lobe of the brain. Scent has a powerful effect on libido, and just a few drops of the right essential oil in a diffuser will do wonders to start setting the stage for a night of romance.


Our Favorite Valentine’s Day Essential Oils

  • Jasmine. It’s no wonder that emotionally warming, relaxing, and uplifting jasmine essential oil is reputedly an aphrodisiac.
  • Sandalwood. This essential oil's warm, resinous, sweet, woody scent creates an exotic, sensual atmosphere.
  • Ylang Ylang. This essential oil is said to elevate sexual energy and enhance relationships. Petals of this beautiful yellow flower are often strewn across marriage beds in Indonesia.
  • Lavender. Used for centuries as the “herb of love,” lavender has been shown in scientific studies to be one of the most potent scents to arouse men.
  • Rose. Renowned for having sensual and aphrodisiac properties, roses and love have been intertwined throughout history.


Recipe for Romance:

Simply add a few drops of your favorite (or a blend of your favorites) to an aromatherapy diffuser for a subtle change in the atmosphere.

 Here are a few recipes for incorporating these essential oils into your valentines day this year:


Bath Milk:

For a seductive milk bath that will leave your skin soft and fragrant, add five drops of any three of the essential oils above to a cup of whole milk and pour into the water as the tub is filling.


Bath Salts:

If you prefer bath salts, add a total of about 15 drops of the same blend of oils to a cup of sea salt. Stir to mix the oils. (These salts work best if you mix them ahead of time and allow them to sit for a couple of days in an airtight container before using.)





4. Sensual Massage

A slow, sensual massage is a wonderful way to relax and connect with your partner. The essential oils in the following recipes have been selected for their reputed aphrodisiacal qualities.

Massage Butter

The warm chocolate aroma of rich cocoa butter mixed with the romantic scent of rose makes the perfect massage butter. All you need is the following:

2 ounces cocoa butter

2 ounces coconut oil

10 drops rose essential oil

Melt the cocoa butter and the coconut oil in the microwave or in the top of a double boiler until the mixture liquifies. Add in the rose essential oil, mix, and then pour into an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator. Warm in your massage butter in you hands before use.

Massage Oil

For an intense, deep massage, use massage oils instead of butter. You can purchase aphrodisiac massage oils here (female) and here (male).

And remember, it doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day for you and your beloved to use aromatherapy to have a scentsational night of passion!
