Ahhh, February the month of love. If you can’t feel the love in the air, let us help you smell it. Just in time for the most romantic holiday of the year, we’ve concocted five recipes of lovely essential oil blends. Perfect for gifts or a romantic night at home, give these DIY blends a try!
Note: Remember to dilute essential oils in a carrier oil like Safflower or Jojoba when applying to the skin. It’s a good idea to always patch test for irritations first.
Awaken your senses.
This easy to mix blend of essential oils offers a sweet and floral aroma. The combination of these lovely oils can help heighten your senses, enhance intimacy and make handling emotions easier.
- 10 drops Rose Absolute essential oil
