Love, intimacy, romance, sensuality… Sexuality, passion, libido, intensity… Cuddling, snuggling and pillow talk…


Everyone longs for and deserves to have a passionate, sensuous and fulfilling sex life. In this post we’ll talk about the most renowned essential oils for love, sex and libido. Essential oils may or may not help you find to find a willing partner, but their use in the bedroom can certainly enhance the sexual experience.

Scent, along with touch, play a big role in intimacy. And the two invite one another… when there’s exposure to sensual scents the mood for touch comes naturally and quite readily!

When it comes to sensuality essential oils have a lot to offer. There are cooling oils to calm the nervous system, warming oils to excite and increase libido, oils that help open up emotions and increase communication and oils that promote a single minded sense of passion, concentration and sexual fervor.

Now sit back, grab a drink and get ready to dive into the more sensual realms of essential oils and aromatherapy.

14 Essential oils for love, sex & Libido

Below you’ll learn about fourteen oils that I’ve singled out for their use in the bedroom.

Not every oil will resonate with you, of course. Since we are working with aromatherapy here and the general sense of smell (which is a very personal thing) you’re not likely to experience smells in the same way as anyone else.

Of course there are oils that are generally well received for use in the sexual realm for their propensity to incite desirable emotions. But you might have an aversion to an oil for any number of reasons, and that’s okay.

This post gives you a variety of options for oils to use and ways to use them. You’ll have to experiment and find what works for you (and your partner)!

Note that any of the oils below work great in an aromatherapy diffuser!

1.) Rose


Rose – it’s hard to find a more romantic oil. It is often called the essential oil of love. It helps open the heart center to receive love and strength, helping a person to love oneself and reduce feelings of fear and unworthiness.

Rose stirs desire, enhances self-esteem and confidence, lifts depressive states, remedies grief, detoxes and purifies the blood, improves digestion, improves circulation, increases semen production, improves uterine function and combats stress & nervous tension.

Rose also has hormonal benefits that support menstruation, reduces the severity of PMS, delays the onset of menopause and prevent menopausal symptoms. It prevents/treats amenorrhea, which is the absence of menstruation, as well as limits/treats Dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) by reducing spasms in the uterus.

2.) Ylang Ylang

Calming in times of stress, Ylang Ylang relaxes, slows a racing heart, decreases blood pressure and boosts mood.

Ylang Ylang works effectively on the emotions. It is a well known aphrodisiac as well as a support in times of bereavement. It doesn’t matter the situation – Ylang Ylang will provide what you need to balance out emotional hyper-arousal or upset.

It’s calming effects are particularly helpful to make your sexual experience feel deeper and more profound. It prevents both Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) and Hyperpnea (fast, shallow breathing). This soothes the emotions of anxiety, anger, worry and fear – and gets you in the mood for some loving!

3.) Sandalwood


Sandalwood is one of the oldest known perfume materials. It’s been used for at least 4,000 years continuously. Sandalwood is a potent tension reliever, relaxes muscles and calms blood pressure. In India it is often combined with rose in the famous scent aytar. The smell alone is enough to relieve a days worth of stress and tension (for me at least).

4.) Rosewood


Rosewood has a calming effect on the mind, instilling feelings of confidence and self esteem. Rosewood is a mood lifter – known to cut through depression and produce a positive outlook on life. It’s renowned for instilling positive feels of hope and optimism. Great emotions to have boosting your sexuality!

5.) Cardamom

Cardamom has been used extensively as a domestic spice, especially in India and Middle Eastern countries. It’s been a part of traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for over 3000 years. Cardamom has a favorable scent and is calming to the nervous system, relieving mental fatigue and nervous strain.

6.) Clary sage

Clary sage boasts some great benefits: it’s deeply relaxing, promotes euphoria, feelings of well being and acts as a powerful aphrodisiac. If you’re looking for some creativity in the bedroom clary sage can help. It’s known to boost creativity by supporting focus in the mind, putting things into perspective and creating inspirational thoughts.

Clary sage is also a valuable hormone balancing oil that helps to relive symptoms of PMS, eases menstrual cramps and alleviates menopausal symptoms.

7.) Cedarwood


Cedarwood has a warming and gentle action on the mind and body. It also has an amazing scent – perhaps my personal favorite. It’s a great option for massage as it alleviates stress and muscular tension.
