Essential Oils for A Romantic Massage
Showing your partner that you care for them by speaking their love language can be the key to their heart. The simple act of affirming them with kind words, picking out a gift they’ll love, helping them get things done or spending time with them can mean a world of difference in your relationship.
And partners who appreciate physical touch might love a hug or kiss, but this Valentine’s Day, show them you really care with a romantic massage. A massage can help decrease stress, reduce aches and soothe tension. Pair this with the deep therapeutic benefits of essential oils and you have yourself a match made in heaven that your partner will love.
Choosing Essential Oils for Massage
Each essential oil herein offers a host of therapeutic benefits and aphrodisiac properties, but to ensure your partner gets the most out of their massage, we’ve organized oils under two aroma profiles: sweet and floral as well as earthy and woodsy. Choosing oils with an aroma they prefer will not only make the experience more enjoyable but also shows them how much you care.
Sweet & Floral Essential Oils
The following essential oils are excellent options to use alone for a floral massage oil that elicits thoughts of serene gardens and calm meadows.
From an aromatherapy standpoint, floral oils generally offer emotional support, advantages in skincare and they help to relax the mind.
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 of the expression of love. 1-2 drops are required per 1 ounce of carrier oil.
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.
Floral & Sweet Massage Oil Blend
While using just one of these oils at a time is enough to put your partner in a state of relaxation, a blend helps to heighten each oil’s therapeutic benefits, offering a more effective application. Try this recipe for a profoundly relaxing, floral, sweet aroma:
4 drops Clary Sage
4 drops Geranium
2 drops Lavender
1 ounce Sweet Almond
Earthy & Woodsy Essential Oils
Dive into blissful relaxation with the grounding aroma of these earthy, woodsy oils. Essential oils from woods, leaves and roots help promote stability, ease anxiety, open airways and remove pain.
Sandalwood Around The World Oil
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 massage oil, add 6-10 drops of Sandalwood in 1 ounce of the chosen carrier oil.
Most are familiar with the grounding, musky and earthy aroma of sensuous Patchouli! 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.
