Aromatherapy is a natural way to change your mood, no matter what you need. Chamomile can calm you down, peppermint provides energy, and rose boosts your mood. Likewise, if you’re looking to set a romantic mood, there are essential oils to do just that.
If you’ve ever noticed that someone’s scent sparked a sense of intrigue in you, you’ve likely already experienced something similar. It all works because the sense of smell is directly tied to the limbic system, which is a primitive part of the brain that’s linked to emotions and memories.
Whether you’re looking to set a dreamy mood for yourself or you’re having company over, aromatherapy is the perfect way to naturally heighten intimacy and passion. Here are the best essential oils for the occasion.
