Essential oils for Low Libido

If you are struggling with low libido, the first thing to understand is that you are not alone. For men, low libido often culminates in erectile dysfunction, which ranges in prevalence from 5% in younger men to 25% in men over 65. In women, low libido is common in all stages of life thanks to fluctuating hormones.

Having a low libido periodically or chronically is nothing to be ashamed of. Bringing your concerns into the open can start the path toward health, intimacy, and resolution.

Low Libido Causes

Causes of low libido vary from person to person and range from lifestyle influences to serious disorders. Some of the most prevalent factors include:

  • Stress – One of the most basic yet most difficult causes of low libido to fix, simply being stressed out and overtired can put a damper on the mood. Stress over relationship issues such as raising the kids, money, and house concerns, can lead to lack of intimacy and hinder libido as well. Most stress can be relieved with simple lifestyle changes.
  • Alcohol – An often overlooked cause of sexual dysfunction, alcohol can be a stressor of its own. While contemporary advice says to utilise alcohol to just relax, it could have the opposite effect and ruin efforts toward libido increase.
  • Hormones – Here’s where it gets complicated. The body’s network of hormone responses create long-term messages for the body to respond to. So they aren’t quick to fix. Hormones are connected to causes like stress, ageing, disease, and menstrual, pregnancy, and menopause related libido issues. When hormones are at the root of libido issues, expect change to come progressively over time.
  • Illness – Physical stressors on the body – such as obesity, heart health, and other illness – can hinder sexual desire and response, as well. When an illness or condition is at the root of low libido, working with a doctor is important.

As gentle and relaxing aromas, these oils can be used in diffusions, sprays, topical applications and more. Get creative to see how you can boost libido by incorporating these essential oils into both your daily life and romantic life.

1. Rose

As an anxiety-relieving, calming oil, it comes as no surprise that rose essential oil is also traditionally used as an aphrodisiac. As a pricey oil, though, rose is most efficiently used in blends or heavy dilutions.

Application: Blend into a perfume to carry this romantic floral scent with you, or diffuse periodically throughout the day for both partners to enjoy.

2. Jasmine

A precious and pricey oil derived from delicate flower petals, jasmine has proven itself well in studies. Researchers tested alertness and “behavioral arousal” after a topical treatment of jasmine oil. Of course, the participants were found to be more refreshed, with their senses on alert.

Application: Apply jasmine topically in a perfume or sensual massage oil for men and women. Note that the delicate petals sometimes require the use of a solvent to extract the oil. Check labels carefully, especially for an organic certification.

3. Clary Sage

A 2014 study undertook the question of menopause symptom relief and essential oils. The found that simply inhaling hormone-balancing clary sage essential oil had an anti-depressant effect on menopausal women. When libido is low due to hormonal shifts like menopause, clary sage is a balancer that may bring some relief.

Application: Diffuse or inhale periodically to relax, balance hormones, and get in the mood.

4. Ylang Ylang

Ylang ylang is widely used as an aphrodisiac throughout the aromatherapy world. Its gentle floral scent is appealing to nearly everyone, and its application potential is diverse. Enjoy with other floral oils or deepen the fragrance with sandalwood.

Application: Diffusion, inhalation, or diluted into a carrier oil as a massage oil for both men and women.

5. Neroli

Essential oil derived from orange blossoms instead of the fruit’s peel is called neroli, a precious and very useful oil. In one clinical trial, researchers found that “inhalation of neroli oil helps relieve menopausal symptoms, increase sexual desire, and reduce blood pressure in postmenopausal women,” making it another helpful option when libido is low due to hormones or stress.

Application: Diffusion or inhalation a couple of times each day for calming, balancing effects.

6. Fennel

As a whole herb, “Fennel seeds have been reputed to increase milk secretion, promote menstruation, facilitate birth and alleviate the symptoms of the female climacteric, increase libido and alleviation of the dysmenorrheal symptoms.” Fennel essential oil retains some of these estrogenic effects, making it a beneficial addition to your libido-increasing, hormone-balancing diffusion or massage blends.

For any hormone issue our recommended Blend is a Roll on Clary Calm!

There is always an oil

Men and women of all ages have faced low libido and have found hope and renewal. There is no shame in admitting the struggle and seeking a solution! As a bonus, openness and partnership in finding a remedy or resolution as a couple will help to increase intimacy, as well.

To relieve the stresses of everyday life, boost libido and begin to ignite a spark with your significant other, try this DIY libido boosting blend diffused or diluted into a carrier oil (almond or coconut are excellent!) for a soothing massage. Simply blend:

  • 2 drops neroli (or wild orange)
  • 2 drops jasmine
  • 2 drops ylang ylang

Directly into a diffuser (or inhaler, with one drop each) or into a tablespoon or two of the carrier oil of your choice.

Essential Oils for Abundance

Essential Oil for Attracting Wealth and Prosperity

In Essential Oils for Abundance, I’m going to share with you the Key Prosperity Oils used in aromatherapy for thousands of years to attract riches and wealth for body, mind, spirit and emotions. 

You can use the recommended pure essential oil alone or in a blend with other prosperity oils to enhance their results and increase your prosperity consciousness for wealth attraction or with Crystals if you like to use them.

The traditional use of aromatic oils to attract prosperity into one’s life has been practiced for thousands of years by some of the world’s most renowned cultures.

Aromatic wealth attraction formulas have often been inherited through one’s family lineage as a practice for passing on a wealthy family’s prosperity consciousness and to ensure the family’s continued attraction of riches.

Many of the Prosperity Oils I am sharing with you are considered “holy” oils and have been used traditionally in sacred healing rituals, as well as ceremonial rites of passage and purification, to prevent and cure disease and for wealth attraction.

The Prosperity Oils are mood enhancers and aphrodisiacs which promote your having good feelings and an aura of attraction around you.

As you know when you feel good things naturally seem to go your way in life. Like a magnet the Prosperity Oils work to help you attract wealth and abundance into all areas of your life.

Many of the Prosperity Oils are Spice Oils known for their strong curative properties.

Throughout history health has been considered the most valuable commodity one could have. So any means to ensure continued “good” health was always highly valued and vigorously sought out.

Additionally for centuries Spice oils from the orient were traded as valuable commodities on the world market and considered more valuable than gold.

The Prosperity Oils are known for their powerful resonance with the frequency of wealth and reputed to attract wealth and abundance to those who use them.

Prosperity Oils works on all four levels of your being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Their application either alone or in a synergy blend magnetises your electro-magnetic energy field for attracting abundance and elevating your inner resonance to harmonise with the “Law of Attraction.”

KEY PROSPERITY OILS

Essential Oils for Abundance

You can chose 1 or blend any 2 or 3 together.

ABUNDANCE AFFIRMATION:

Dispense 1-3 drops of your prosperity oil or blend into your hands or a diffuser.

My Favourite blend is Frankinsense, Bergamot which I shall use today.

Close your eyes and begin to inhale the scent of your oil. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax. As you continue to breathe and inhale the scent of you oil your cellular respiration will deepen and your brainwaves will begin to slow down to a relaxed alpha state. When in an alpha state your subconscious mind is more open, and receptive to your suggestions.

Essential oil for panic attack

Speak your affirmations aloud, with confidence and clear intention.
Feel the spark of the divine flow of abundance, the embodiment and “consciousness of abundance” within you. And so it is!

I give thanks that I am rich and prosperous in every way.
Money flows abundantly in my life for which I am very grateful.
My abundance makes everyone better off.
I embrace abundance and abundance embraces me.
Money is my friend and ally.
I am aligned with the energy of money.
I relax into wealth consciousness.

Zendocrine blend

Zendocrine Detoxification Blend

Zendocrine detoxification blend is a fairly new essential oil blend to support the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances,  cleanse the body of toxins and support healthy liver function, while also purifying and detoxifying systems of the body.

With more people turning to essential oil blends to promote overall health, I wanted to look into the benefits of Zendocrine.

What is Zendocrine?

Zendocrine is on of our doTERRA essential oils blend products. This detoxification blend offers a host of benefits, but primarily its uses include:

  • Supporting healthy liver function.
  • Detoxifying systems of the body.
  • Body system purification.
  • Supports the body’s ability to cleanse the body of toxins.

Essential oil blends are volatile aromatic compounds found in the bark, flowers, roots, seeds, and stems of the plant. What is a volatile aromatic compound? They are small organic molecules changing from a liquid or solid state into a gas; all at room temperature. When volatile aromatic compounds move through the air, they in-turn affect the sensory glands; making essential oil blends ideal for use in aromatherapy.

Benefits of Zendocrine

While doTERRA offers key benefits of Zendocrine, there are additional benefits of essential oil blends. The primary benefits of Zendocrine include:

  • Body system purification.
  • Claims to cleanse the body of toxins.
  • Supports healthy liver function.
  • Additional benefits of essential oils include:
  • Complementary treatment to massage therapy and acupuncture.
  • Positive effects on nausea and vomiting.

INGREDIENTS

Zendocrine Ingredients

Zendocrine ingredients are listed in a proprietary blend, including:

  • Tangerine peel
  • Rosemary leaf
  • Geranium flower/leaf
  • Juniper berry
  • Cilantro herb

Tangerine Peel

Tangerine, as with other citrus fruits, has been studied extensively for its health benefits. The Chemistry Central Journal concluded, “metabolites in Citrus…work synergistically to exhibit anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory properties.”

Rosemary

Rosemary is used in culinary dishes throughout the world, but also offers health benefits. According to the journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “uses of rosemary are antibacterial, antioxidant, improving cognitive deficits, and anti-inflammatory.”

Additionally, the journal Psychiatry Research found “smelling rosemary increases free radical scavenging activity and decreases cortisol levels.”

Geranium

Geranium is an essential oil studied for its benefits on stress reduction. According to the Journal of Caring Sciences, “Aroma of essential oil of geraniums can effectively reduce [stress]…and can be recommended as a non-invasive anti-[stress] aid.”

Juniper Berry

Juniper is native to Europe, North and South America. According to the journal International Scholarly Research Notices, juniper has been used in “herbal medicine…as [an] antidiarrheal, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and antiseptic.”

Research presented in the journal Antioxidants concluded, “antioxidant research of juniper essential oil provided the existence of several mechanisms which enabled [free] radical scavenging.”

Cilantro

Cilantro is another plant often used in culinary dishes possessing both nutritional and medicinal properties. Based on research presented in the journal Fitoterapia, cilantro offers “anti-inflammatory properties.”

Zendocrine Uses

Aside from the claimed benefits of Zendocrine, uses of the essential oil include:

  • Aromatic
  • Topical
  • Internal

Aromatic

As a part of an aromatic essential oil regimen, users will add Zendocrine to a diffuser of their choice. You’ll add three to four drops of Zendocrine to your diffuser.

Topical

Zendocrine can be used topically. You can create a Zendocrine detox bath by adding three or four drops to your bath. Some also add Epson salts as well. An additional topical application of Zendocrine is applying directly to the skin. The company recommends applying one to two drops to a particular area. doTERRA suggests diluting Zendocrine with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) to minimize skin sensitivity.

Internal

You’ll add one to two drops of Zendocrine to your citrus drinks, water or tea. doTERRA suggests diluting one drop in four ounces of liquid before adding to a dink.

Zendocrine Side Effects

Instead of focusing on side effects found in Zendocrine blend, I have looked at any potential side effects of Zendocrine ingredients.

Tangerine Peel

One of the potential side effects of using tangerine essential oil is skin reactions. According to the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, “To avoid any possible adverse skin reactions, it is recommended to dilute Citrus oils with a carrier oil before topical use.”

Something often missed regarding side effects from tangerine essential oil is the potential interaction with prescription medication.

Rosemary Leaf

While there’s no mention of adverse effects of using rosemary essential oil, there are some positive side effects. According to the journal Scientia Pharmaceutica, in an animal study, mice were exposed to “.5 mL of rosemary for a period of an hour [resulting] in locomotive activity of mice was increased.”

Geranium Flower/Leaf

Some users may notice side effects from this particular ingredient. However, according to the Dental Research Journal, research has “not observed any reportable side effects in patients receiving Geranium.”

Juniper Berry

According to Toxnet Toxicology Data Network, some reported side effects of juniper include “difficulty in breathing, wheezing, and coughing.”, so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with asthma or respiratory conditions.

Cilantro

Cilantro is generally safe to use. However, according to the Indian Journal of Pharmacology, cilantro may have a “sedative” effect.WARNINGS

Zendocrine Warnings

There are warning and cautions mentioned on the official website regarding Zendocrine.

  • Possible skin sensitivity.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Consult a doctor if you’re pregnant, nursing or under the care of a doctor.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes, inner ears or sensitive areas.

Zendocrine Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • There is research to support health benefits of some ingredients in Zendocrine.

Cons:

  • May cause skin irritation.
  • Science shows possible side effects.

Why do we store essential oils in amber bottles?

Essential oils are extremely precious and should be treated with respect – they can also be very expensive.

They can become damaged by ultra-violet light and therefore deteriorate more rapidly.

Essential oils should be stored in amber glass bottles. If you do store your oils in blue bottles they need to be kept in the dark. This is less important with brown bottles. Never decant the oils into clear glass or plastic bottles because they are so powerful they could actually dissolve the plastic!

They should never be placed in direct sunlight, so avoid sunny windowsills or shelves on radiators no matter how attractive the bottles look. Essential oils do not like extremes of temperatures. They are highly volatile which means that they evaporate rapidly. Always replace the caps immediately and ensure that the tops are tightly closed when the oils are not in use.

Pure essential oils will last for approximately three years from the bottling date. In excellent storage conditions (amber bottles in a cool place) they will keep for about five years. Citrus oils tend to have a shorter shelf-life due to their high proportion of terpenes, as do absolutes and resins which thicken even more with age and the smell of solvent becomes more noticeable.

Once essential oils have been diluted in a carrier oil, the shelf-life reduces dramatically. For maximum benefit use freshly made-up blends. A blend will keep for about 3-6 months if it is stored in an amber glass bottle in a cool place away from sunlight. If sweet almond oil is added then the shelf-life is approximately 6-9 months. If the smell alters and the oil becomes sour smelling then you should definitely discard it.

Do’s & Don’ts of Buying & Storage

We recommend only purchase essential oils if they are certified pure therapeutic grade.

*Always buy oils in amber glass bottles. Clear glass or plastic bottles do not contain pure essential oils. 

*Do not store your oils in direct sunlight

*Are the essential oils all the same price? If they are, then you are definitely not purchasing pure essential oils. For instance, pure essential oil of rose and Frankincense will be far more expensive then lavender, rosemary or wild orange essential oil.

*If purchasing oils that are diluted, always verify the date they were blended.

*Essential oils should always be kept away from young children. If they are taken internally some essential oils can be highly dangerous.

*Never leave bottled pure essential oils standing on plastic, polished or painted surfaces which can be damaged by the chemical constituents.
