For a lot of people, especially married people, spicing their sexual lives can be a little difficult. Most of the time, even coming up with the talk can be rather difficult, since it requires a lot of honesty and bravery, and most worry about hurting the other party’s feelings.
But here’s the thing: this situation is something that requires to be surpassed, or things won’t end up pretty for the married couple. Is something that needs to be discussed if you want a successful long-term relationship, and you definitely want to bring up the topic if you feel dissatisfied with how things are resulting in bed.
The other way around might even be a great idea. If you feel like your partner is not enjoying their time with you during intimacy, try to not rely too much on pride and talk things out. It might hurt and sting a little, but it’s all up for a greater good.
Now, if you are here, you might be wondering how to improve your sexual lives. You might be even enjoying an incredible sexual experience with your partner and want to experience something new. Whatever is the case, there are many options out there you can try out, and one of these is known as aromatherapy, a rather fancy, yet affordable way of improving sexual performance and libido.
How Aromatherapy Works
Although there’s a lot going on when it comes to this alternative medicine technique, there’s little to no scientific research to properly say whether its benefits are real or not. Still, the use of aromatherapy has been around since ancient times, practiced by Greek, Chinese, Indian and Egyptian civilization.
Aromatherapy is the technique of using essential oils to alleviate and deal with different symptoms, often linked to mental exhaustion, anxiety, and depression, and it has been used to help people with joint and muscle pain, as well as insomnia, headaches, migraines, and stress.
Although there’s little research about the efficiency of essential oils when it comes to dealing with these symptoms, it has been proven to grant positive results at helping people with some of these problems. Of course, depending on the type of oil, effects may differ. For detailed information, there’s more here than covers how it works.
Now, you might be wondering how it actually works, and the concept is actually very simple. You see, our bodies are capable of absorbing some of the nutrients and compounds found in the oils, which are extracted from plants and combined with an oil that works as a dilutive, usually known as a carrier oil.
This is applied directly to the skin, providing better results depending on the technique. Professionals commonly use massage as a method to improve the skin’s absorption capabilities and help the body relax during the process, alleviating muscle pain, and such.
Some of these essential oils are able to provide benefits just with its aroma, and they are mostly used to help people with stress and insomnia. Essential oils are the heart of aromatherapy (you can find a good list of them here).
Essential Oils and Sexuality
Now, believe it or not, some oils are perfect to increase sexual drive and improve sexual performance. There are a lot of alternatives, and you should definitely check them out over here https://www.thehealthy.com/sex/essential-oils-for-sex/, but I’m going to showcase some of the most popular options.
Cinnamon is well known for being a rather spicy and interesting option among beginners, and it’s well known for improving circulation, which leads to energizing effects that improve sexual drive in both men and women. It also improves sensitivity and provides an exciting warming feeling when applied directly to the skin.
Clary Sage is another famous alternative since it’s literally described as an aphrodisiac oil. It directly toys with your hormones, helping them balance, thus improving sexual drive and performance. Just so you know, hormonal imbalance is one common problem among people who suffer from low libido, and by fixing this problem, results might benefit the person greatly, not only sexually, but in their daily life as well.
Among other alternatives, you can check the benefits of Jasmine, Patchouli, the famous Rose essential oil, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot.
As a personal recommendation, you should always pick the oil that fits both side’s taste, since it’s never appealing to enjoy something with an unpleasant smell around. As long as you are both happy with the aroma, you’ll definitely enjoy yourself better.
