Scent and sex go back. Way back. Back in time.
A person’s natural smell can be a deal maker or breaker for a potential partner, but essential oils have long been used to complement and enhance one’s natural scent. Aromatherapy uses the natural properties of essential oils to alter a person’s mind, mood, or health. Naturally, certain oils have gained reputations for their libido-boosting, aphrodisiac qualities.
“Our sense of smell stimulates the nerve endings of the olfactory bulb, which lies at the back of the nose, which in turn stimulates a part of the brain called the limbic system that triggers our libido. The essential oils do magic and stimulate the pituitary gland, the master of endocrine gland, which controls hormone production. Inactiveness of pituitary gland can lead to low sex drive. So, the oils help keep it in an active state.” — Dr Naresh Arora
