Romantic Essential Oils
These romantic essential oils can be used in your favorite diffuser. Or, you can use the in massage oil, body scrub, or bath salts. Either way, the scents will help you relax and unwind so you can spend a special time with your partner.
Everyone has different favorites when it comes to essential oil blends. Some people love the smell of roses and others prefer ylang-ylang.
If you know that you dislike one of the ones that I mention, then leave it out. It’s not going to put you in the mood if you don’t like the smell.
To use these oils, you can add them to your diffuser. Or, you can add them to a carrier oil and use them in a roll-on to apply to your wrists or other pulse points. I like to make my own diffuser blends to enjoy them around the house.

How to use romantic essential oils
One of the easiest ways to use these oils is to add them to your diffuser in your bedroom. Or, you can create a linen spray and sprits the bedsheets. Try to avoid the pillows so it isn’t too strong close to your face.
Of course, you can also make a massage oil by adding these to your favorite massage oil. You can start with this massage oil recipe and just adjust the oils to whichever ones you think you will like the best.
Make an essential oil bath
You can also add a few drops of essential oil to your favorite carrier oil and add it to your bathwater. I love using jojoba but you can also use almond oil or even sunflower oil.
Why not light your favorite candle and put on some romantic music while you take a long hot, relaxing bath with your favorite oils.
Can I make these blends ahead of time?
Oils will lose their strength when exposed to air and light. So, I would not make this ahead of time. Just add the drops directly to your diffuser or your carrier oil right before you plan on using them.
