Aphrodisiacs promote sexual activity

The sense of smell is the only one of all human senses that is closely connected to the limbic system. Namely, it forms emotions and reactions. Therefore, when people encounter a scent, it involuntarily evokes certain feelings. Especially when it comes to aphrodisiacs, which increase the attractiveness of the opposite sex on a subconscious level and stimulate sexual desire.

According to Harpers Bazaar, aphrodisiac molecules are very small. In this regard, they easily overcome all body barriers and, when applied to the skin, instantly enter the circulatory system, triggering a series of chemical reactions in the body.

Aphrodisiacs relieve stress.

According to aromatherapist Anastasia Titova, to increase sexual activity, you should choose aphrodisiacs based on ylang-ylang, neroli, rose, black pepper, patchouli, cinnamon bark, cardamom, nutmeg, amyris, sandalwood, jasmine, tuberose, and vanilla absolutes.

Aphrodisiacs can improve blood circulation.

It is worth remembering that each aphrodisiac has its character.

For example, all spices are hot and sultry, woody aromas embody strength and steadfastness, and floral aromas represent sensuality.

Aphrodisiacs increase libido.

The aromatherapist claims that nutmeg, cardamom, patchouli, betel leaves, black pepper, and neroli, which can be diluted with citrus notes, are suitable for men. And for women - vanilla, floral accords and velvet sandalwood.

Fragrances awaken emotional memory.

The expert recommends choosing aphrodisiacs based solely on your feelings. But if your choice is purposeful, then, for example, a blend of ylang-ylang, patchouli, black pepper, orange, myrrh, and cinnamon bark oils sets you up for a special evening mood and includes sexual desire. Cinnamon bark warms you from the inside, orange gives you confidence. And black pepper increases libido.

You can get a massage with aphrodisiacs.

There are different ways to use aphrodisiacs:

1. Apply to the skin - preferably to pulsating points: neck, wrists, and hollow on the chest.

2. Add to massage oil.

3. Make an aromatic bath. Since essential oils do not dissolve in water, essential oil should be added to bath salt.

4. Turn on an aroma lamp or diffuser.

For a bath, essential oils need to be dissolved in salt.

Reference. Aphrodisiacs are substances that increase sex drive and sexual activity.
