We’ve all heard that certain fragrances can kick start a libido. Do you believe it’s true? Well, scientists all over the world test this theory. Perfumes and colognes have been created and designed on this belief. How this actually works is, inhaling certain smells sends a message to brain, therefore triggering memories or thoughts. This reaction causes the flow of blood to increase in the genital area.
Have you ever smelled cotton candy and thought back to the county fair? Or, fresh baked bread reminds me of my grandmother. The scent of pumpkin reminds me of Thanksgiving at home.
Certain shampoos and lotions bring a smile to my face. One specific lotion brings back memories of the short time I spent in India. Many cultures use scents to evoke feelings from sexual to spiritual.
Baking scents, like cinnamon, are popular in increasing the blood flow to the genitals. I’ve been known to put a half teaspoon of cinnamon in a pan with water and simmer it on the stove all day. The strength of cinnamon is amazing. Vanilla is another scent to experiment with. It’s one of my faves.
Ylang-ylang is potent. I’ve heard that not only does it increase one’s libido, but has a relaxing effect.
How can one use these scents with their lover? Add a few drops of essential oil to your bath water. The scent will remain on your body after you dry off. Use scented body washes or lotions. If you like a challenge, create your own scent by adding a drop or two of several essential oils that you like to an unscented lotion. Light smelly candles, or better yet, use wax warmers in the bedrooms. Bake cookies and plan on a romantic evening.
Turn him into a hot and wild lover--he won’t even know what hit him…
