Winter is the perfect time to snuggle up next to a warm fire with your sweetie for a relaxing date night at home. Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean your evening has to be boring. Why not turn up the heat (and not just in the fireplace)? Breaking out the essential oils to give your partner a sensual massage can be a great primer for a romantic evening.
Instead of taking a stroll down the intimate aids’ aisle at the local drugstore, try mixing up your own massage oil at home using Young Living products designed to stimulate the senses (and the libido). Essential oils can be safer than some of the weird ingredients in over-the-counter products. Plus, you can spare yourself the awkwardness of running into your next-door neighbor while looking at commercial lubes in the store. Trust me when I say it’s best to avoid that scenario, friends.
To spare you that experience, here are some of my best tips for using essential oils for sensual massage to make your next date night in one to remember.
While it’s true you can use just about any essential oil to enhance a massage, you might want to choose one to match your mood (or enhance the atmosphere you hope to create). Scent plays a major role in setting the scene. Plus, those science guys tell us that our memories can be triggered by smells because our limbic system is linked to our sense of smell. For those of you who may not know, the limbic system is the most primitive part of the brain. Therein lies our basest of instincts, including the urge to get a little something, something with your special someone.
Some fragrances can get the motor running a little more efficiently than others. Here are my top picks for romance.

Essential oils can do more than heat up your massage time. You also can use it to make a DIY lubricant with a warming sensation that is out of this world. Here’s what you need to make it:
Mix with the carrier oil of your choice and store in a bottle with a pump for ease of use. Coconut oil is an excellent choice for a carrier because it’s mild and non-irritating for those sensitive areas. You need about 1 to 2 teaspoons of this love potion to get the job done. Always shake the mixture well before using.
Giving a sensual massage is an art form. Do it right, and you’ll leave your partner begging for more. One of the first things you must do is warm up your hands. Most people prefer a warm touch to a cold one for an enjoyable experience. Dabble a few teaspoons of your special massage blend and warm it up in your hands. Then, start with light strokes from the head to the toes to get your significant other’s juices flowing. (You can increase the pressure depending on what your partner likes). Pay special attention to the neck and shoulders, where most people hold their tension.
Leave no part of the body untouched during your massage. Rub every nook and cranny until your sweetie is completely relaxed. Remember, friends: your hands aren’t your only tools during the massage. Get creative.
