God created Adam and Eve. God created the birds and the bees. So... love is in the air and let's get to talking about it. Before I begin, this is NOT a topic that I normally discuss openly, especially on a public forum. But, I do believe that it's important to normalize sex inside of marriage. I believe in the sanctity of marriage and that God ordained it to be a good thing. And whether you believe it or not, sex is a big part of intimacy. So, I'm not going to shy away from a topic that feels a little adverse for me. After all, I've promised that I would be here to write to you to inspire, equip, and empower you with joy for every season in life- and that means marriage and intimacy and romance... and since it's Valentine's month, why not?!


In this blog, you're going to get all kinds of tips and tricks on how to use oils in the bedroom!

 

Essential Oils

Let's cover the basics here. "Oils are... the lifeblood of a plant. They protect the plant from disease, provide nutrients and help fight off anything it doesn't want! It keeps the plant (or tree, fruit, bark, root, etc.) healthy and functioning at its best!


Essential oils should smell exactly like the plant they come from – nothing more, nothing less. Often, companies will add things like vanillin to make them smell sweeter. Do your oils smell like a plant or a dessert? If it says 100% pure but it smells sweet, chances are something else has been added. This means that the therapeutic properties are either decreased or nonexistent." -Taylor Quigg

That is why the Seed to Seal Commitment is so important. I only use YOUNG LIVING Essential Oils. Why? Because of their transparency. No other brand can match their processes. You can visit their farms and get an up-close look at their distillery process. They test their oils over and over and then have an outside source do so as well. All of these factors make a huge difference in quality and effectiveness. 


All oils are NOT created equal.

Here is what makes Young Living different:

- YL farms and partner farms abide by strict standards.

- YL selects the strongest seeds from strong thriving plants. They will not over-produce for quantity or stock needs. They only produce what the healthy plants will provide.

- Pest Control: All plants are hand-weeded and use oils on plants to avoid the use of toxic chemicals.

- Plants are harvested at peak times to ensure quality oils, down to the hour.

- Distilleries are on site to prevent contamination and process without chemicals.

- Every batch has several tests to pass and done 3 times each by YL and outside parties. If it doesn’t meet their standards because of weather conditions or for any other reason, it does not get used.

Aromatically 

Using oils aromatically, in a diffuser, is amazing for emotional support. If you need a little courage to help get you in the mood, your diffuser may just do the trick.


How to Use a Diffuser:

If you've never diffused oils before, all you have to do is get your diffuser, fill to the full line with water and then add 6 drops of oils. Most diffusers vary in size and time, so be sure to read the instructions. Some even have some really neat lighting options. If you want to get started with a diffuser, we can help you!


How to Clean:

You'll want to clean about once a week or in between strong blend changes.

  1. Turn off and unplug your diffuser.

  2. Wipe out the reservoir with a wet cotton cloth.

  3. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and clean the ultrasonic plate to remove any extra buildup.

  4. Rinse the reservoir with water; then wipe it clean and dry up excess water with a soft cloth.

  5. Add water and essential oils; then diffuse away!
