We’ve all been there. You met someone new and agreed to a first date. Maybe you feel a little nervous or have a few butterflies in your tummy (because, let’s be honest, this guy was handsome, charming, and funny, and you definitely think there may be potential here). You’re fixing your hair and maybe change a few times before you find the perfect outfit. It’s important that everything is just right.
Your date probably has some anxious and excited feelings as well as he gets ready. Perhaps he’s picking out an outfit that will make him look sharp or classy, and adding some cologne.
No matter who much we may prepare for a first date, though, odds are you may still have some nerves. Not only that, but if this date is with someone you’re interested in, you want it to go smoothly so that he or she will agree to a second one.. and maybe a third, and fourth, and more.
Aphrodisiac essential oils are often associated with increasing libido and enhancing intimate relationships, which is definitely something they’re commonly used for. However, aphrodisiac essential oils can also help in the beginning stages of a relationship, such as a first date.
In this part of our aphrodisiac series, we are going to take a look at how aphrodisiac essential oils can help you make a good impression on your first date and move on to the second.
Feeling and showing confidence is extremely important on a first date. Having confidence in yourself (but not being cocky or arrogant) is very attractive to most people. Being confident is not being “cool” per se; instead, it is showing that you have self-respect, are genuine, and take a sincere interest in others, especially your date.
Even though confidence is important on a first date, many of us have trouble naturally presenting our confidence. Or perhaps we aren’t as confident in ourselves as we would like and need a little boost. Before your date, try diffusing, inhaling, or topically applying (with a carrier oil) any of these oils to help boost your confidence:
First dates can be a little nerve-wracking. As the time for the date draws closer, you may experience some first date jitters, especially if you really want the date to go well. Oftentimes, it’s easy to get ourselves overworked and over anxious, but these are things we don’t want to display when we are trying to make a good first impression.
In addition to feeling relaxed, you want to make sure you are awake and alert for your date. This is especially important if you’ve had a long day or week and are feeling extra tired. Being alert and energized can make you happier and more engaged in conversation, which will definitely be more appealing to your date.
To help calm your nerves, feel energized, and feel more yourself, try diffusing, inhaling, or topically applying (with a carrier oil) these oils before your date:
Your sense of smell is more powerful than any of your other senses. So, while feeling confident, relaxed, and energized is great for a first date, one way to captivate your date is to smell attractive. Everyone is drawn to different aromas, but we’ve made a list that can generally make anyone — men and women — seem more attractive to others:
Whether you’re going on a first date with someone new or recreating the first date with your spouse, a first date is a special moment that requires some preparation and care. Essential oils are a natural and powerful way to stimulate healthy feelings and emotions that can help a first date go smoothly and get you on that second date.
