A Loving Roll On Blend
A roll-on essential oil blend is a great way to pamper your significant other this Valentine's Day. This All About Love blend includes the sweet and calming scents of yuzu, cardamom, rose absolute, patchouli and vanilla jojoba oils.
Yuzu essential oil has been used in traditional Japanese culture as an aphrodisiac while cardamom helps to promote feelings of love and belonging. Rose absolute oil is a powerful base note that provides a luxurious bouquet when blended with the other oils. Patchouli essential oil helps to further create an atmosphere of romance and passion, while vanilla infused jojoba rounds out the blend as a nourishing moisturizer for skin.
A Sensual Massage Oil
A massage oil blend like Sensual Massage Oil is a great way to spoil your significant other for Valentine's Day! Not only does the blend provide an aromatic experience with the subtle notes of red mandarin, ylang ylang, sandalwood and jojoba that your partner will love. It has also been proven to have therapeutic benefits.
The essential oils found in the blend have antiseptic properties which can help heal skin irritations, as well as anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce swelling and muscle pain. The jojoba oil in the blend also helps moisturize dry skin and provide nourishment. Furthermore, massaging with this oil blend can help reduce stress levels that keep your relationship healthy. Not only is it a wonderful sensory engagement due to its pleasing scent but it also promotes relaxation and tension relief, making it an ideal gift for Valentine’s Day.
