Jasmine oil offers a warm, sweet, and seductive aroma that is perfect for any night in the bedroom.

As a result, you can relieve any feelings of exhaustion and replace them with a more uplifted and passionate mood. 

Jasmine oil also has a mild euphoric effect, which can help relieve any low moods or nervousness you may feel about the night. In addition, Jasmine essential oil has been known to increase libido, which will definitely get you and your partner in the mood! 


This spicy-smelling essential oil is great for creating an exotic, sexy atmosphere. Cinnamon is well-known as an essential oil that can help increase blood flow. And when your blood is flowing, you can experience greater energy that will not only make you excited for a night with your partner but also help you to be mentally alert and present with the one you love. 


As a citrus oil, Orange is known for its ability to brighten the energy in a room, boost your mood, and increase feelings of joy. Being happy and having greater positivity about yourself is key to having an enjoyable night in the bedroom, and Orange is the oil to make that happen. 


Known as the essential oil of love, Rose is a natural aphrodisiac and has been used for centuries as a way to promote relaxation and enhance libido. Rose has a deep, floral, and romantic aroma, making it perfect for creating a seductive and sexy atmosphere. 

Rose oil helps boost your mood, improve blood flow, and open your heart. With this essential oil mixed into your romantic evening, you can feel emotionally closer to your partner while also stirring up desire. 


This floral yet citrus-smelling oil is a must-have for any romantic evening. Neroli oil is known for its ability to strongly boost libido in both men and women. Not only that, but Neroli has strong calming properties that can help reduce feelings of stress or nervousness. By promoting both relaxation and a better mood, Neroli essential oil can help combat frigidity. Many people also believe that Neroli oil can help with impotence. In short, Neroli is an excellent oil that can help make your night in the bedroom go smoothly for both partners. 

Sacral Chakra Blend

Your sacral chakra is located just below the belly button, and it is a driving force for your enjoyment in life. When your sacral chakra is balanced, you can experience greater passion and creativity, and the ability to more fully connect with your emotions. Before you begin your romantic evening, apply the Sacral Chakra Roll-On just below the belly button. This will help you feel greater joy and pleasure with the night's activities. 

Ylang Ylang 

Ylang Ylang oil is one of the most common aphrodisiacs that people have used for centuries. This floral oil has soothing properties that can help calm anxious minds and slow quick breathing, making it easier for you to participate in a romantic evening. Ylang Ylang essential oil can also help boost your mood, and create feelings of euphoria and self-esteem. Both of these benefits help make for a wonderful time with your partner. 

By boosting your mood, Ylang Ylang oil can also help make it easier to experience more passionate feelings. In addition, Ylang Ylang stimulates your senses, which can help you have a more overall profound and enjoyable experience with your partner. 


Lavender is commonly known as the oil to relax and sleep, which may seem counterproductive for a romantic evening. But, stress is one of the biggest libido killers, and by promoting relaxation in both you and your partner, you both can experience a more enjoyable evening together. By feeling more relaxed, you can let go of the stresses and distractions from your day, and focus on being together and enjoying each other's company. 


Sandalwood is one of those essential oils that men are more drawn to because of its woody and earthy aroma. While it may not be a traditional go-to for many women, studies actually found that women who inhale the aroma of Sandalwood oil had a better mood and greater feelings of desire during sexual activity. 

Sandalwood essential oil provides a strong grounding effect that calms the mind and can promote positive feelings. This can result in greater feelings of self-esteem and confidence, as well as create the feel of a more erotic atmosphere. 


With a more rich, herbaceous aroma, Patchouli oil is great for reducing feelings and symptoms of stress and nervousness. Patchouli essential oil can also help replace those feelings of stress with ones of positivity and a happier mental state. Mood plays a big role in both creating and engaging in a romantic atmosphere, and Patchouli is a great oil to help put you in the right mood.

This particular oil also evokes feelings of relaxation and happiness, and can increase your libido.
