That’s the power of the connection between scent and attraction.
Scientists have found that, like animals, humans bond through scent. Although there are many facets to attracting a partner, scent is a primal component in that attraction. So whether you’re courting someone new or having a romantic night in with your long-term love, these essential oils will help in the romance department.

As you embark on your romantic soirée with intentions of luring your partner on a romantic journey, apply aphrodisiac essential oils to bring about a wonderful, euphoric feeling. You can use essential oils in bath and body oils, body butters, and bath salts. To prevent skin irritations, do not use essential oils directly on your skin.
