Plant Therapy's Love Vanilla brings the romance
There are quite a few essential oils that can turn up the romance with their known aphrodisiac inducing scents. One of my favorite aphrodisiac scents is vanilla. The sweet and intricately deep scent that vanilla brings to pretty much any other oil is extremely sensual and decadent. Knowing just how divinely enticing vanilla is, Plant Therapy created their own aphrodisiac essential oil blend by combining to totally sweet and delightful scents (vanilla and ylang-ylang) and combining them to make their delightful Love Vanilla synergy blend! To make an extremely simple aphrodisiac inducing massage oil, I am combining their blend with some of my favorite carrier oils that I always keep on hand!
DIY Love Vanilla Massage Oil
To make this recipe even easier, you can combine the essential oil drops with Plant Therapy's Marvelous Massage carrier oil blend (in the 2 oz. size) instead of the carrier oils in the recipe below.
- 50 drops Plant Therapy Love Vanilla essential oil (you can use up to a 3% dilution at 108 drops but this eo blend is very strong in scent, so I like to use a smaller dilution!)
- 2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
- 2 Tbsp. fractionated coconut oil
- 2 oz. bottle
- In the 2 oz. bottle, combine the essential oil with the carrier oils. Swirl the bottle to completely mix together!
