Honoring St. Valentine - romantic aromatherapy

02/10/2015 - 17:21

I can’t say I have ever been over the top into St. Valentine’s Day, why celebrate love on just one day? Having said that, I do like to make a bit of an effort on February 14 to honor the romance in our lives.

Here are three different aromatherapy recipes you can try out to help set the mood for Valentine’s or for any romantic evening during the year.


For a relaxing and warming blend that makes a perfect accompaniment to a home cooked dinner:

2 drops vetiver

2 drops ylang ylang

1 drop jasmine or rose (do not use if pregnant – replace with geranium instead)

1 drop sandalwood


For after dinner in front of the fire use these oils to encourage closeness and a feeling of warmth:

4 drops geranium

2 drops cinnamon


Or, one of my favorite romantic blends

4 drops bergamot

1 drops ylang ylang

1 drops neroli


Enjoy, and wishing you much fun and romance!
