Aromatherapy Can Improve Your Sex Life

The sense of smell is all powerful in being able to shift the emotions and consciousness of living beings. Certain scents can make you hungry or cause you to become nostalgic, thinking of a memory associated with the observed smell. Some scents can cause people to become happy whereas others can create a sense of melancholy in others. No matter what the reaction of the scent, it has been proven that our sense of smell has a direct effect on our emotional state, and sexuality isn’t impervious to these same affects.

There is a plethora of ways to bring about change to your sex life and aromatherapy is one that is often overlooked. Essential oils (the blood of plants and flowers) carry strong scents that have been used for centuries in conjunction with therapeutic baths, massages and even in room fragrances to relieve stress and depression and to usher in a sense of tranquility and peace.  Although Eastern cultures have adopted the practice in holistic healing, Western culture has just begun to explore the many benefits of aroma therapy.
