Getting Your Guy (or Client) Into The Aromatherapy Mood

Aromatherapy has been used for years for both enjoyment and medicinal purposes. You can count on a variety of essential oils to enhance your mood, ward off depression and heal the mind and body. Everyone can benefit from the use of a few essential oils. So, how about you man? Did you know that you could use these same oils as an aphrodisiac? Just mentioning the word aphrodisiac will probably turn most men’s heads. So if you want to introduce your man to the wonderful world of aromatherapy, your best bet is to start down this avenue.
Most men would not mind a little boost in the bedroom. There are a few essential oils that have been used as aphrodisiacs as well as to assist in getting or maintaining an erection. The difference between the two is that an aphrodisiac is something that heightens sexual drive or libido. An aphrodisiac will probably not give a man an erection, but it will certainly help him on his way. Getting or maintaining an erection is a different story. It is not that the man doesn’t have the sexual desire; it is that his penis is not doing what it’s supposed to do.
Agarwood is an essential oil that is said to be the most powerful of the herbal aphrodisiacs. In Indonesia ylang-ylang is known as the flower to be spread across the bed of newlywed couples. This is because the essential oil is said to have a euphoric, sedative and sensual effect on the nervous system. You can have this in the bedroom and burn the oil or use it in a massage.
If your guy is having trouble getting or maintaining an erection, try using some yohimbe essential oil. This drug is said to help blood flow to the penis and increase the strength of an erection. Do consult a physician about using this oil because it can cause problems in some men. In fact, this oil has been used for years, way before Viagra. It must work!
Now that you have got their attention by using a few essential oils in the bedroom, you can turn them onto other aspects of aromatherapy. Introduce them to tea tree oil, lemon oil, or lavender. Whether he likes flowery scents (it’s okay, he can admit it) or woody scents, light scents or heavy scents there is something out there that’ll appeal to him.
Now comes the fun part how will you two use the aromatherapy? You can use an essential oil diffuser or lamp to heat the oil and inhale the aroma. However you choose, you can be certain that the both of you will get the full benefits of these wonderful and useful oils.
A bath would be fun. Fill it up to the top with hot water and add his favorite essential oil. Besides getting the benefits of inhalation, the both of you will be soaking and softening your skin, as well. Then jump in and have fun.
One favorite that many men like and maybe yours too, would be to use your favorite essential oils to give each other massages. Make sure you dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil so that you do not irritate your skin. Essential oils are very potent and only need a little bit for each use. That’s why the bottles they come in are so small. Do not overdo the oils, as they can irritate the skin.
You could start by massaging his temples, and go to his shoulders and back. Use long, deep strokes down his arms and gentle light ones down to the tips of his fingers. You get the picture. Use this time to breathe in the relaxing aromas, give your guy a killer massage, and bond. You’ll enjoy it just as much as he does.
Or, how about washing the sheets and pillowcases in a few drops of the oil? This ensures that the scent will always will be where you need it! It is easy to add just a few drops in with your regular laundry. Just be sure that you are not adding too much. Once your man has experienced the benefits that aromatherapy offers, he will be hooked.
