Oh yes, I am going there in this blog post! I know this is a topic people want to discuss, but rarely do, so let’s start off our weekend with a little chat, shall we?
I want to start out by saying that I believe God designed intimacy between husband and wife as a gift. It is so incredibly sweet when held in that context.
When the first man and woman were married, He said, “they must become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). The “one flesh” bond includes sexual intimacy and an emotional connection.
God also wants us ladies to enjoy intimacy. The Bible says, “Husbands and wives should satisfy each other’s sexual needs.” (1 Corinthians 7:3)
However, real life sets in. You know what I mean. Things get busy, stress overcomes our ability to relax, and we are exhausted by the end of the day.
So let’s look at how we can fulfill the 1 Corinthians verse I just mentioned in our own marriages. I recently taught an amazing essential oils class that shared tips and practical essential oil strategies for supporting our bodies in a way to make it easier to find “fireworks” in the marriage bed. It was hugely popular and much needed.
Many times life gets in the way of the intimacy in our marriages – kids, medical concerns, stress, exhaustion, and many other things can stand in our way if we let them. So I am going to share a few key essential oils that are known to help struggles in certain areas. I knew I had to share because I have benefited from these and I want you to as well. Don’t you want fewer excuses and more fireworks in the bedroom?
This is an amazing serum specifically formulated for women and ideal for those women over 30 years old. It features some of Young Living’s most-loved essential oils, including Sacred Frankincense and Peppermint, to create a serum that perfectly pampers you.
I use this serum each evening and I have noticed my moodiness decrease, my overall monthly cycle feels less than noticeable rather than disrupting everything, and I am just plain nicer!
Wild yam extract and vitamin E support your skin in looking its best, while Frankincense smooths the look of fine lines. Keep your skin looking as young as you feel and add a few drops to your moisturizer or massage it directly onto your skin.
There are many amazing benefits to this serum, as it helps add a balance to our “see-saw” moods and is great for our oversell wellness and to increase our desire for intimacy. I use 2-5 drops a day on my ankle. It is a game changer!
EndoFlex is a blend that supports our endocrine system. The endocrine system is what tells your body what hormones to produce and when. The endocrine system regulates metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood.
I use this oil each morning and roll it on my spine just below my bra line. It certainly helps support great energy levels – which means I may have energy left at the end of the day to be intimate.
Ylang Ylang has long been known as an aphrodisiac. It is awesome for supporting libido in women, and men seem to respond to the scent positively too. (I can vouch YES for that!)
This oil may increase feelings of happiness, adoration, and it calms the mind. It is amazing in the diffuser, as well as used topically alone, or mixed with other oils like Cypress.
Idaho Blue Spruce
Idaho Blue Spruce is primarily an oil used for your man!
This remarkable essential oil contains high percentages of alpha-pinene and limonene and has a pleasing and relaxing evergreen aroma.
Daily use of this oil topically will help support healthy testosterone levels – and you want your man to have healthy levels! You can also use this with coconut oil as a lubricant (ladies, you may feel it as a slight cooling feeling for you!).
Goldenrod helps to support the circulatory system. As the name suggests, Goldenrod can be used on, well, I am trying to keep this post so it won’t get flagged as the “bad” kind of post – so hopefully you can think of what supporting the circulatory system and your man and blood flow have in common.
I have no personal experience with this oil, but let’s just say when it comes back into stock it is quickly grabbed.
Light the Fire Personal Lubricant
I want to tell you to RUN to make this. If you don’t have the supplies, GO ORDER THEM NOW! This gem will certainly bring some fabulous new heights to your marriage bed – safe, all-natural, and extremely helpful for both you and your hubby! Just use the quantity indicated and mix and it’s ready to use!
You probably had no idea that not only are using essential oils great for keeping your immune system running smoothly, supporting your health, keeping you energized, balanced, and thriving emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually – but they are good to help your marriage too!
