Remember the last time your honey walked by and you caught just the slightest whiff of their perfume or cologne?
Tell me that didn’t get you feeling some type of way…
It makes complete sense, of course. Because, as humans, our senses are directly linked to our emotions. And around this time of year, that feeling of love that Marvin Gaye sings about is all that we all want.
You know what I’m talkin’ bout don’t you?
Valentine’s day is right around the corner.
While every day is a great day to whisper sweet nothings into your lover’s ear, Valentine’s day gives us all a reason to amp up that spirit of love.
This year, I’d like to show you just how you can involve your senses to experience the most sensual Valentine’s day you’ve had in a while.
Set the mood with taste
Start the night off in one of the most sensual place in the home…
What better way to show your special someone you care than by cooking up a nostalgic meal for them to come home to. Maybe it’s your famous ravioli you made on your first date, or a seafood feast that will take you both back to your honeymoon in Greece.
That first taste of your inspired meal will instantly flip the “on” switch for a magical night ahead…
Heat things up with sight and sound
Now is when you heat things up a little by tuning into the sounds of classic crooners, sexy soul, or relaxing jazz. Whatever music turns up the mood in your home, push play!
That’s sound taken care of, but what about sight?
The next part of your sense-filled Valentine’s day experience comes with relaxing candlelight as you turn down the lights and create a relaxing atmosphere in your bathroom where a bubble bath for two is slowly but surely getting deeper.
Now there’s nothing left to do but spend an hour or two soaking, soaping, and spending time in the arms of your favorite person on earth. This relaxing tub time just so happens to be doing double duty: preparing you for what comes next of course.
Getting in the mood with smell and touch
Feeling oh so zenned out, but not quite ready for bed, it’s time for smell and touch to come into play.
With a little help from our signature body butters, a full body massage is in order. Wouldn’t you agree? For thousands of years, smell has been used as an aphrodisiac. And what better way to make use of it than with oils that have a profound impact on our emotional and physical being.
The following three body butters contain my personal favorite fragrances for increasing sensuality:
Particularly good for women, jasmine induces feelings of euphoria, and relieves tension and feelings of stress. Get the passion flowing with this soft floral scent found in our best selling Jasmine Body Butter.
Probably the fragrance that’s most linked to romantic scent and Valentines day, you can’t go wrong with the fragrance of roses. With the ability to lift you out of feeling down and depressed, rose oil also encourages feelings of confidence, boosted self-esteem, and the best of all…desire. Get the most out of the oil of love with our Rose Body Butter.
A classic scent that has been used in perfumes dating back over 4000 years, sandalwood is the perfect sensual scent for both men and women. Helping to relieve tension, mental blocks, and relax muscles, when you use our woody and slightly sweet Sandalwood Body Butter, you’ll have no choice but to sink into a deep smoky relaxation.
