But before we talk about our recommended essential oils for love & romance, a little science & history…

Aromatherapy, often considered a holistic approach to well-being, involves the use of essential oils extracted from plants to promote physical, emotional, and mental health. Many individuals find the scents derived from essential oils to be calming, uplifting, and even sensual.

Cleopatra VII, who was famously seductive, was said to be a fragrance fanatic.

“Enobarbus: I will tell you.

The barge she sat in, like a burnish’d throne,

Burned on the water: the poop was beaten gold;

Purple the sails, and so perfumed that

The winds were lovesick with them; 

…From the barge

A strange invisible perfume hits the sense

Of the adjacent wharfs.” 

Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra, Act II, Scene II
