Let's explore some of the more sensual and erotic essential oils that are perfect for romantic evenings with that someone special.

Three of the most popular and well known essential oils in aromatherapy that provoke feelings of pleasure, sensuality and erotic moods and help to open the body and release inhibitions are orange, ylang ylang and jasmine.

Orange essential oil helps to stimulate joy, optimism and playfulness. Physiologically orange essential oil creates warmth and pleasure in the body and stimulates sensuality and pleasure… especially when combined with ylang ylang essential oil. Orange helps connect us to our five physical senses and also helps to remove inhibitions.

Ylang ylang is a soft sweet erotic fragrance that stimulates feminine sensuality, euphoria and erotic moods. The fragrance stimulates the part of the brain that releases endorphins so it has anti-depressive properties and is great for nervous depression and tension. Its effects are calming and antispasmodic, much like valerian. It is wonderful for helping the body to relax, unwind and open up to sensual pleasures.

Mixing orange and ylang ylang together is a powerful combination for casting that magic spell of sensual and erotic ambience.

Jasmine is another powerful fragrance that deeply influences the emotional part of us. Jasmine is especially great for helping to dissolve away emotional blocks involving relationships and sex. Jasmine helps with reducing psychological tension, frigidity, coldness, fear and paranoia and helps bring a sense of euphoria.

Under its influence both men and women open up to sensual love. Jasmine helps set the stage for experiencing warm love, total abandon, trust and relaxes and helps to open the body and emotions.

Jasmine is very stubborn and its fragrance won’t release with traditional steam distillation so, unfortunately today, jasmine oil is generally produced by extraction that involves the use of solvents like hexane, petro-ether, chlorinated hydrocarbon or tetrachlormethane. The solvents are evaporated but the minute quantities that do remain are very toxic.

Jasmine is also a very expensive essential oil to produce. It takes about 1000 pounds or 3.6 million fresh hand picked blossoms to make only one pound of the essential oil so there are only a few producers of jasmine oil and unfortunately the most cost effective way to get the oil out of the blossom is with chemical solvents.

If you do use jasmine essential oil care should be taken not to use it orally or on the body and I’m not even sure if by diffusing it one wouldn’t be inhaling the chemicals along with it but if you can ever find jasmine oil extracted by the enfleurage method I would definitely recommend taking advantage of this magic oil.

Another option would be planting some night blooming jasmine near your bedroom window…night blooming jasmine opens its blossoms at night and the fragrance is quite powerful.
