Boudoir Basics: Part 3 ~ Essential Oils

You have your sexy, little lingerie or your cozy, comfortable go-to jammies on. You have taken the time to create a serene, seductive, or soothing boudoir through lighting, furniture, and accessories. What makes your boudoir complete? Two words.

Essential Oils.

You know how the color of your lingerie can affect your mood, why not take it a step further with aromatherapy?

Whether you are a Glamour Puss, Classically Romantic, Stylishly Modern, Au Natural, or a Sexy Seductress, also burning essential oils on your lap ring or behind your knee can have a sizzling effect.

What is the best essential oil for your personality type? Look below to find out.

Ylang Ylang: A floral blend that brings a flirty, feminine, lovely feeling.

Vanilla: A classic, fresh, light scent that brings about a lively, youthful vibe (image above).

Eucalyptus: A strong scent that cleanses the area you're in. Creates a fresh, crisp, clean feeling and discards of negative emotions.

Jasmine: The ultimate floral scent that invokes romance, love and being free.

Sandalwood: A woody scent that grounds the soul and creates a feeling of being centered.

If you don't find yourself listed in the above categories, below are a few basic essential oils that will help you achieve the desired mood through aromatherapy.

  • Lavender: Good for rest and relaxation (image above)
  • Ylang Ylang: A sweet scent that is good for relaxation and romance
  • Patchouli: A musky scent that stokes the passion
  • Vanilla: A light, sweet scent that invokes innocence
Essential oils and lamp rings can be purchased at your local health food store or online. The oils cost between $5 to $20, depending on the oil and its quality. It is an easy and inexpensive way to boost your mood and enhance your boudoir.
