Using Essential Oils as a Natural Aphrodisiac

Using Essential Oils as a Natural Aphrodisiac

Natural ways to improve sex drive with essential oils

All of us have a basic need to love and feel loved. Relationships can really help fulfill this need through emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy. Even though we would all love to pretend that sexual intimacy is super easy, there are often emotional, psychological, and physical barriers that can prevent us from truly enjoying intimate time spent with our spouse.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a natural way to improve your sex drive? This is where essential oils come in. While we are familiar with essential oils reducing strong discomforts, relieving stress, and removing unwanted pathogens, essential oils can also give you natural ways to improve sex drive.

What is a Natural Aphrodisiac, and How Does it Work?

A natural aphrodisiac is a substance that enhances/stimulates passion and sexual arousal. In other words, it helps you “get in the mood” by helping reduce physical, psychological, or emotional conditions that may interfere with sexual stimulation and arousal.

Certain essential oils have been known to be extraordinarily effective in terms of their natural aphrodisiac qualities. One of the main reasons why they are so incredibly effective is because their natural chemical composition works quickly on the circulatory, endocrine, and reproductive systems when applied to the skin (usually with dilution, often through a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil).

Essential oils are also effective natural aphrodisiacs because their aromatic qualities have rapid effects on one’s mood, thoughts, and feeling (aromas are uniquely influential because, once inhaled, odor molecules register in the limbic portion of the brain, which is also responsible for sexual behavior and memory, which can subsequently influence one’s sexual response).

Most natural aphrodisiac essential oils work by impacting the body temperature; once the body has reached an ideal temperature, essential oils are most effective in terms of influencing sexual behavior patterns. Additionally, essential oils can help balance hormones, reduce fatigue and exhaustion, support the body’s physical health, and promote emotional wellness, which subsequently makes it easier for an individual to enjoy/experience emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy.


Individual Intimacy-Boosting Essential Oils:


Jasmine is known for its alluring aroma, Jasmine can help improve self-esteem, enhance mood, and increase libido; all of these factors will help create a more enjoyable, euphoric erotic experience.

Ylang ylang

Ylang ylang is one of the more commonly-mentioned aphrodisiacs, this essential oil works to support a healthy libido and endocrine function.


While Patchouli likely isn’t the first one to come to mind, Patchouli can help enhance mood, improve circulation, and raise body temperatures.

Clary sage

Clary Sage helps support the endocrine system. At first, this may not seem like it would naturally help to improve sex drive, but the endocrine system is a vital part of regulating hormones, and so this greatly works to enhance libido.


Not only can Bergamot enhance libido, but it also creates a more ideal sexual atmosphere by balancing hormones, creating a much more stable environment for emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy to be enjoyed.

Kimberly: If you re going to make your own massage oil like that, and I love that, how many drops would you put in for like a little I m so bad with the ounces and sizes. Like, a little bottle of it or like a little jar of it?

Kimberley Milousis

I would say start with a little jar and then add 1 drop of each essential oil. Take a strong sniff and if you think you’re missing more smell, add 1 drop of each oil until you are happy with the smell! I hope this helps!
