I'm not saying that you can't have one without the other, but having love AND oils in your life at the same time is a HUGE bonus!
There's lots of science and research out there that talks about how solid social connections, romantic relationships and intimacy have a positive and profound influence on our physical and emotional health. On the flip side, there's also more and more science and research out there that claims the powers of essential oils and how they can impact our overall health and wellness. That's a big paraphrase in both the love and essential oil corners, but you probably already know and agree with me or you more than likely wouldn't be reading this blog, right?
Regardless, I know that you know for fact that it feels good to be loved and to love - be that between a partner, friend, family, child or even a pet. What you may not know, or may be wondering is how in the world essential oils can be a companion in this department.
Much like love, essential oils can play a vital role in our emotional health, which can have a major impact on how the rest of our body feels and functions. Whether you're dealing with stress, anxious feelings, overwhelm, loss or even subtle things like the weather can have a profound impact on our mood. That's why having the right tools (essential oils) to support our emotions can be super empowering.
Citrus oils by design, thanks to nature, are very uplifting. A couple of my favorite citrus oils for boosting my mood are Wild Orange, doTERRA Citrus Bliss® or doTERRA Citrus Bloom® if you're lucky enough to have it (limited edition oil in 2019). On the other end of the spectrum, sometimes we need to feel calm and secure. My go-to calming oils are Adaptiv™, doTERRA Balance®, and of course Lavender.
Aside from the aromatic benefits from diffusing these essential oils another great way to introduce them into the body would be topical use. Putting essential oils on your pulse points - wrists, neck, over your heart and even the inside of the elbow is a very effective way to get essential oils into your system so they can work their "magic" with a quickness.
The title of this blog is All You Need is Love & Oils!, so I think I should leave you with some essential oil recipes for romance and intimacy.
Have a fun experimenting!
