Safety Tips

We are using pure essential oils, which can be quite potent, to create the recipes above, so there are a few precautions you'll need to take.

Wear Gloves

Always wear gloves when dealing with pure essential oils; this is to help avoid any skin irritation (always use a carrier oil before applying any oils to the skin).

Do Not Ingest

Never use essential oils internally; don't sallow or use them in your nose, ears, or other body openings, as this can cause a severe reaction.

Keep Away From Children

Keep out of reach of children; there are also certain essential oils that you should avoid when pregnant. Consult an aromatherapist, naturopath, or your doctor to be sure (cedar wood, cinnamon, ginger, and sage should be avoided, to name a few).

Test Oils Before Use

When using a new oil for the first time, it is always wise to do a skin test first. Here are two methods:

  1. Dip a cotton bud into your new essential oil and apply it to the inside of your wrist or elbow. If no irritation occurs after 6 to 8 hours, it is safe to use on your skin.
  2. Another way to test is to use 1 drop of your essential oil in half a teaspoon of carrier oil and apply to the same places as above, waiting 8 hours to see if you have a reaction.

Add More Carrier Oil if You Experience Burning

If you experience a mild burning sensation with the use of essential oils on your skin, simply add more carrier oil to the area of the skin to help absorb the essential oil and relieve the stress on your skin. If the burning sensation is moderate to severe, do not continue using the essential oil and contact a medical professional.

Hope you enjoy these recipes!

How Else Can You Use Essential Oils to Set the Mood?

Sensual massage is just one way to incorporate essential oils to set a romantic mood. You can also:

  • Use oil diffusers. Romantic and sensual massages do set the mood, and the incorporation of essential oils can heighten the sensuality, but using oil diffusers can also be romantic since many of the oils listed here serve as aphrodisiacs through olfactory delights, not just through the sensation of physical touch. This is a good alternative for those who do not want to apply essential oils directly to their skin.
  • Take an essential oil bath. This can also be a romantic endeavor. Add some flowers, candles, and romantic music for a nice touch. You can follow up with a nice sensual massage. Be sure to avoid using too much essential oil in the bathwater (no more than 12 drops).
