This blog is about oils and romance. You know that 🙂 Well, before we even talk oils, you need to know that a big part of feeling sexy is not defined by how you look. It comes from an inner peace knowing that you were created beautiful. You were knit together in your mother’s womb. You were fearfully and wonderfully made. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Our beauty comes from within. I know. That’s cliche. But. If we don’t believe it – it will effect our relationships with our husbands in the bedroom. Along with or physical health. We have to take care of our emotional health. Part of that is loving ourselves. Go grab your pen and paper, and make a list of the things that make you beautiful. We challenge you to try and list as many things as you can that aren’t having to do with your physical appearance. If you want to be brave, we would love for you to share some of these things with the class tonight. Go ahead and list a few in the comments below and let us CELEBRATE our beauty together!
HOW TO USE:
In her book, Lucy explains that quality matters in any essential oil application. When we are talking about using oils for intimacy application, it is ESPECIALLY imperative that you understand the importance of using a true SEED to Seal therapeutic grade essential oil which we can only find with Young Living.
A true essential oil is the lifeblood of the plan. Oils carry valuable properties inherent to the plant.
Each plant has a different value based on its chemical makeup. When taken from the plant and used in the human body, this lifeblood bestows those same properties into the human body. It’s crazy cool.
These properties are called chemical constituents and are what make essential oils living, bio-available superstars!
AROMATICALLY AND TOPICALLY! Essential oils can have a profound effect on your mood. They are unique in that they get past that “thinking brain” and impact your “feeling brain”. If you have a starter kit, it came with a high quality diffuser. Yay! Use that bad boy to your advantage!!!! Diffuse your favorite oils to set the mood!!! There are several mood-enhancing recipes in Lucy’s book and we are going to talk about a few oils to diffuse tonight! YL Oils can also be used topically. Oils can be placed on vita-flex points, on the wrists, chest, bottom of the feet and in case for the class tonight – the inner thigh! Always spot test oils on your arm first – and don’t use any hot oils neat anywhere on the body – especially for the purpose of the bedroom!
BALANCING OILS FOR HER There is some confusion as to whether or not hormones are healthy, and whether they increase or decrease the likelihood of disease. When natural hormone levels are high – women tend to have less issues with PMS, menstrual migraines, and low libido. However, when these levels are low, a woman may choose to supplement with a synthetic chemical hormone to ease her symptoms. While these chemicals do help to ease symptoms, they have been linked to high rates of other diseases. Phytoestrogens, like those found in Clary Sage, are plant hormones that are similar to mammal estrogens and are bioavailable in the human body. The wild yam extract found in Progessence Plus increases progesterone without synthetics. So, when you are considering the safety of hormones, think of it this way: Human Hormones: GREAT Plant Hormones: GOOD Synthetic Hormones: BAD Now that that’s clear, let’s talk about oils that balance your hormones. Get your pens ready!!!!
PROGESSENCE PLUS Progessence Plus is an oil-infused serum developed JUST for women. The doctor who developed Progessence Plus created it for Young Living based on his findings that most women have very little natural progesterone. This is a problem because progesterone is a hormone that impacts libido, mood, and overall wellness. Progessence Plus contains USP progesterone from wild yam extract, Vitamin E, Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint to soothe the crazies and calm your mind. Wear it daily on your wrists or neck, or several times a day during times of hormonal distress. Progesterone levels tend to drop the lowest a few days before and during menstruation. Lucy says that it supports her lady-crazy and always wears this before and through her cycle. This can also be worn daily to prevent irritability and to keep your “happy hormone: levels high every day. When your hormones are happy – you are more likely to feel happy as well! Do you use Progessence Plus? Tell us what you you think of it!
Here are Lucy’s four favorite hormone-balancing oils.
LADY SCLAREOL is first and foremost a lady hormone balancing oil. It contains oils known to decrease negative emotions, boost confidence, and help the wearer to feel more peaceful and grounded. Geranium aids in hormonal balance and Clary Sage aids with cramps, PMS and agitation. Ylang Ylang helps to balance male-female sexual energy and encourages feelings of sensuality. Sage Lavender has been shown to increase the body’s estradiol levels which equates to being more regular. It can be worn daily as a perfume because it smells delicious. Not only will you smell amazing as you are, but you will feel more balanced and in tune with your partner.
DRAGON TIME is a hormone balancing oil that was developed juuuuuuust for “that time of the month”. Thank you YOUNG LIVING!!!!! Dragon Time is chalk-full of the best oils known to alleviate PMS and menstrual woes. This blend works primarily by raising estradiol levels in the body which also drop during menstruation. Apply this oil all over your abdomen several times a day. Lucy loves it in Epsom salts during a nice warm bath. Dragon Time is gentle enough that even teens can use it! Don’t you wish you had this when you were a teenager!??!!
SCLARESSENCE VITALITY is another hormone supporting oil that loves your girly systems. The beauty of having an estradiol increasing blend as a dietary supplement is that women can take a daily internal supplement that supports and loves their reproductive system. Low estradiol levels are commonplace amongst women with female irregularity and/or fertility complaints. While reproductive health is multifaceted and has many components to it, supporting healthy estradiol levels is one factor in a healthy reproductive system, Beyond the reproductive system, estradiol also plays an important part in bone health, energy levels, metabolism, libido, and emotional well being.
ENDOFLEX is a hormone balancing oil that flexes and strengthens your endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for telling your body what hormones to produce and when to produce them. It regulates metabolism, growth, development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, thyroid function, sleep and mood. Don’t we all want these things to work well? Endoflex supports the pineal and pituitary glands and the adrenal glands. Endoflex can be used topically directly over the thyroid. Endoflex Vitality can be taken as a dietary supplement to support all parts of the endocrine system. What do you think? Which ones do you think are screaming your name?!!! I LOVE my endoflex and dragon time!!!!! But after learning about LADY SCLAREOL, I think I’ve been missing out!! Can’t wait to try that one!!! Have you tried it yet?
LIBIDO OILS FOR HER!!!!
Ahhhhh, we start with Ylang Ylang. Its power as an aphrodisiac has long been known. In Indonesia, the petals of the Ylang Ylang flowers are scattered over the bed of newlywed couples on their wedding night. It has traditionally been viewed as a romantic flower and has an alluring scent.
Ylang Ylang is one of the ingredients in both Joy and Sensation oil blends. Lucy says that it’s especially wonderful because it increases libido in women and men tend to respond to the scent on their women as well. This oil increases feelings of happiness, adoration, romance, and it calms the mind. Its calming effect can even lower blood pressure just a tad to help you feel zen.
Lucy says to use this oil in the diffuser to prepare the room, and in an inner thigh potion to increase desire, or in a lube for an alluring aroma 😉
Meet Valor and Valor II. Valor is so popular, it gets an entourage! Valor II followed the original Valor when it became too popular. Both blends are designed to help loosen emotional blocks. Both Valor and Valor II contain oils that stimulate the limbic area of the brain. They help you to relax and promote feelings of confidence and courage. This is the perfect choice to use liberally throughout the day to keep stress levels down. In the bedroom, it smells amazing diffused. You can wear Valor over your heart, on the wrists, or the back of the beck. If Valor could talk, she would say, “Don’t worry. It’s going to be OKAY.” Valor contains Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense. Valor II contains Northern Lights Black Spruce, Idaho Blue Spruce, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia German Chamomile, Geranium, Coriander and Davana. Valor helps you feel confident about whatever is imminent. So, you can feel self-assured during the day at the office and fearless at night in the bedroom. Can we get an AMEN for valor and valor II!??!!!
Yay, Clary Sage!!! Lucy calls Clary Sage a girl’s best friend. Clary Sage is one of the main oils that helps with PMS in our beloved Dragon Time blend, and to balance hormones in the blends like SclarEssence and Lady Sclareol. Right around that time of the month, estrogen levels drop quickly and drastically. This is part of the reason why you may feel the need to break down crying when your eyeliner doesn’t go on straight. Everything is tragic when your estrogen levels are low. K- so how does this tie in with libido???? This is REALLY cool. You see, a woman naturally feels more “in the mood” when her estrogen levels are higher. This is because our estrogen levels are highest when we are ovulating. We are designed to feel more in the mood when we are fertile. It’s how we were made. As we age, our estrogen levels drop. One sign of low estrogen is “dryness” down there. Applying Clary Sage to the inner thighs and below the navel helps to increase natural lubrication!!!!
Did you know JOY was originally named “Love?” The oils in Joy stimulate the brain’s sense for love and affection. Diffusing Joy is a good way to invite the mood. If you don’t love the aroma of Joy, try blending it with some Lemon to make it more bright, or blend it with Clary Sage to make it more earthy. This oil can be used aromatically or topically to raise frequency and to increase feelings of love. It is fantastic in love lubes and inner thigh potions
Shhhhhhh….. The next oil we’re going to talk about is surprisingly sensational. And like something else we’re talking about here…. It also starts with the letter S.
That little secret is Sensation….
Sensation is an alluring blend of Ylang Ylang, Rosewood, and Jasmine. It smells like Joy but a little bit softer because it lacks the Geranium that gives Joy it’s strong floral scent. It creates a mood of flirtation and tenderness. Not a lot of people know about Sensation…. But it’s named that for a reason. It is simply Sensational.
Sensation can be used aromatically to set the tone. When your Mr. smells it in the air, he’ll know what he’s in for 😉 It smells soooo soft and sweet on your chest. It’s fantastic for inner thigh potions and in love lubes. I’ll tell you a secret – Lucy says that Sensation is so powerful and yet so mild that it can be used with very little dilution directly on your lovey-dovey lady bits. Ha! Yes, Lucy went THERE.
OK – Let’s talk Cypress. Cypress is one of Lucy’s ALL-TIME favorite oils. She calls Cypress the “Thighmaster”. It is her favorite oil to use in inner thigh potions for the bedroom. It can be used for men and women, but Lucy talks about it here because it is a MUST HAVE to help the ladies REALLY enjoy their intimacy with their husband!!! The reason Lucy loves Cypress so much for in-between the sheets is because Cypress stimulates blood-flow and circulation in the body. Blood flow is kinda a big deal when you are talking about the bedroom. Lucy says Cypress will help your man get in the mood and fast, and likewise it will make her experience better than ever. See the pattern? Cypress = blood flow and blood flow = magic. Apply it to your inner thighs. Apply it on his inner thighs. Mix it with other favorites. BUT DON’T forget the Cypress.
Lucy says that Orange is like the drop of happiness in a bottle. Orange is a bright oil. Orange welcomes light and happiness. Orange brightens the mood, lifts the spirit, energizes the mind and creates feelings of bliss. Orange is an aphrodisiac oil that helps you to let go of your grown-up problems and embrace sexuality and fun. Orange is AWESOME for frigidity. It can help you relax if you have low libido due to a bit of anxiety. It is fantastic when mixed with a floral like Ylang Ylang. It can be used in the diffuser to help you chill or on the inner thighs to unwind and let go. Orange is also good for the man, because it increases glutathione levels. This is because Orange contains high levels of citrol and d-limonene which stimulate glutathione production in the liver. Glutathione is one of the necessary components for your man to be “READY”. If you know what I mean. Lucy recommends several drops near the liver.
Now, let’s talk about oils that can support your main squeeze. We’ll start with Mister. This blend helps the prostate to function optimally which is a big part of his libido and performance. It also supports healthy testosterone levels which men need to be stalwart in the bedroom. You can apply Mister to his ankles and to the front and back of the pelvis. Lucy says to apply daily for optimal prostate performance. It smells quite nice actually. And it’s really soothing in a bath or worn as a cologne. Ironically, women need certain levels of testosterone, although not nearly as much as men. We need more estrogen and progesterone. When those levels fall too low, we get koo-koo bird grumpy. Well, occasionally that insane irritability can also happen when your estrogen is too high, and your testosterone is too low. I know, it sounds crazy, not enough testosterone? But we need it too. For women who are estrogen dominant, adding estrogen to their lives doesn’t make them more balanced, obviously. Some women found that Mister helps them with hot flashes and mood swings. Women who tend to feel more balanced using Mister fall in the category of being estrogen dominant, and they tend to be older than 30, but that’s not a hard fast rule. If you find that the typical female balancing oils don’t make you feel better, give Mister a try. It was made for a man, but Mister can swing both ways.
Now we get to chat about one of Lucy’s favorite oils for HIM. And by that, we mean an oil that your main man can wear, to make sex more awesome for YOU! Because let’s face it…. When intimacy is better for you it happens more often for HIM. That’s something that Mr. Libido wants to pass along to all the other men out there!
Mr. Libido has an oil that he really likes. It’s called Idaho Blue Spruce. And it really does “SPRUCE” him up, in a very good way. It helps a guy stay firmer longer so that you can enjoy yourself longer too. It’s nature’s version of that little blue hexagon. This sprucing oil can be used with coconut oil as a lubricant or mixed in an inner thigh potion.
Here’s the nice thing about it…. Your man’s soldier isn’t left with any “unmanageable salutes”. HA!!
Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time there was a plant named Goldenrod. The oil from the flowering top of the plant was found to improve circulation and aid in the urinary tract. According to the University of Montreal in Canada, it was also found to help with deflated hoses and firmness of… well, you know…. That male body part we have come to refer around here as “the solder”. HA! You can use goldenrod topically or you can take 3 drops in a capsule.
Time for Nutmeg! Nutmeg is another blood pumping must-have for your mister. Technically it can be used on the ladies too, but we’ve seen the best results using it for the guys. Nutmeg’s energizing properties stimulate both physical and sexual energy.
Some people report feeling “wired” after diffusing or ingesting Nutmeg, and can be comparable to a caffeine kick depending on your body’s chemistry.
Nutmeg is an aphrodisiac in more ways than one. Emotionally it stimulates energy, and physically it increases circulation. Simply put, this oil acts as a vasodilator. Vaso= blood vessels and dilator = make bigger. Put two and two together. I think you can do the math.
Hey, remember, this is Lucy’s class not mine!!!!!!!!!
Nutmeg is SO stimulating that it can have negative effects when used in excessive amounts. So, don’t go crazy and drink a whole bottle in hopes to transform into Captain America ok?
If energy and stamina is what you are after in the bedroom, then try this fun little recipe called Lucy’s “Perky Pill” – It’s the result of a fun-time trial and error in her research group. It’s 5 drops Idaho Blue Spruce, 3 drops Goldenrod, and 3 drops Nutmeg in a capsule with 10 drops olive oil. Have him take 10-30 minutes before go time for optimal results 🙂 HA
Remember earlier when we talked about how it’s more important to feel confident that it is to look like a model? Well, Hong Kuai is often called “confidence in a bottle.” With the highest sesquiterpene content of all aphrodisiac oils, Hong Kuai is like inhaling liquid confidence. Hong Kuai is distilled from trees that grow on the steep rainforest mountaintops of Taiwan. Hong Kuai is a member of the Cypress family. Remember how much Lucy loves Cypress for its ability to increase blood flow? Hong Kuai is the man’s Cypress. It smells like a woodsy, handsome man just waiting to whisk you away. A little goes a long way. Add a drop or two to any lube, serum or love potion.
WE saved the best for last!!!! We have one oil left to discuss!!! SHUTRAN!!!! Shutran is formulated for the man to wear, to help turn on the lady. It’s like a bottle of sweet smelling pheromones wafting into the hidden parts of your brain, stimulating your naughtiest imagination. Once you realize what Shutran can do for you….. Oh, THEN, it becomes worth every penny. It smells really attractive. Now what does Shutran do for the man? Let’s just say it’s loaded with Idaho Blue Spruce, which we know is like a blue hexagon of happiness. It makes sense that Idaho Blue Spruce is a key ingredient in Shutran. It also contains Hinoki, a Japanese Cypress, and Ylang Ylang for male-female energy. He can wear it daily like a cologne, to boost testosterone and confidence. He can use Shutran topically on the forearms or inner thighs.
