Essential Oils For A Romantic Massage

February 08, 2015

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, what could be more enchanting than a massage oil created with essential oils? According to the American Massage Therapy Association, the benefits of massage can include: decreased stress, reduced aches, relief from stress and lessened tension. When this wellness modality is combined with all of the wonderful benefits of essential oils, it is a match made in heaven.

Feminine Essential Oils

The following essential oils are excellent options to use alone, diluted in a carrier oil, for a feminine massage oil.

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang is exceptionally floral in aroma, very relaxing and considered to be an aphrodisiac. It has a powerful aroma; only 3-5 drops are needed in 1 ounce of carrier oil for a single massage.


This beautiful essential oil has a sweet floral aroma, resulting in a heavenly-scented massage oil that is very soothing to an overworked nervous system. As Neroli’s aroma is also very potent, only 3-5 drops are needed in 1 ounce of the chosen carrier oil.

Rose Absolute Bulgarian

Hands down, this highly-prized essential oil is one of the best aphrodisiacs. Rose is enjoyed for its beautifully heady, deep floral aroma and is symbolic for the expression of love. 1-2 drops are required per 1 ounce of carrier oil.

Jasmine Absolute

Also valued as a renowned aphrodisiac and sexual tonic, Jasmine is very calming to the mind and nervous system. This incredible essential oil has warm, deep floral notes. Use 1-2 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil.

Masculine Essential Oils

Below are great choices for a more masculine massage oil:

Sandalwood Australian

This is a woody, softly balsamic, earthy aroma that is valued for its ability to calm the mind and ground one’s senses. Sandalwood is also utilized as a sexual tonic. To use in a massage oil, add 6-10 drops of Sandalwood in 1 ounce of the chosen carrier oil.  


Most are familiar of this aroma, and they either love it or hate it! It is well-known for its aphrodisiac properties as well as its ability to have a synergistic effect (both calming and gently stimulating). A very grounding and intoxicating oil, Patchouli can help one step back into the sensual properties of the body. Only 1-2 drops are needed per 1 ounce of carrier oil.


This warm, smoky, woody oil is very relaxing on a psychological level. It can both gently sedate and restore the senses, while proving to be exceptionally relaxing for an overworked mind. To experience Vetiver’s full therapeutic effect, only 2 drops are needed per 1 ounce of carrier oil.

    I started in oils with a kit from Doterra, I really liked them, and can buy whole sale. But they are still really expensive. I inherited a very large kit from Edens Garden from my mother. I have now using them for awhile. And honestly I haven’t seen any difference in the brands, and actually prefer the smell of Edens garden over some of the Doterra oils. Also I can still pay the bills when I am done. Thanks for a great product.
