Grumpy mommies train grumpy kids. When we feel run down, it’s very difficult to have a cheerful, energetic attitude; and, as unfair as it seems, it will affect those you care for and train.

In addition, a moody mama is going to find it difficult (if not downright impossible!) to stay on top of the housework, to consistently train the children (without losing it), and to keep a productive, industrious household. Ask me how I know.

Emergency Mode

A few years ago, I found myself realizing that our family had been under well over a year of constant, major stress. We had remained on emergency mode non-stop, running four full time businesses (tea room, gift shop, online bookstore, and publishing an international magazine). In addition, we traveled around the country with our children, speaking at homeschool conferences, all while writing books, having babies, and pastoring a church (yes, this tends to be a family venture).

This was all supposed to be temporary (until we could hire more help); but, until we moved from Houston to Illinois and sold the businesses, things just seemed to get more and more out of control and consuming.

Fight or Flight

We had too much going on, with very little rest or focus on our health. Are you familiar with the fight or flight response? It’s a response mechanism that God gave us to help us to escape danger. Our brain produces a rush of adrenaline, we get a blast of energy, and all our senses go into overdrive. Which is good if you’re trying to run from a bear, but we’re not meant to live in emergency mode non-stop. This stresses our adrenals, and messes with our endocrine system as a whole.

Because of the snowball effect of constant stress, I had no energy, I was moody, and everything seemed to be going wrong. I thought it was just age and that was just how life was going to be; I didn’t realize it didn’t have to stay that way.

All the body systems work synergistically; so, when one thing is off, it affects everything else. That’s why it’s important to do what we can to keep our body at optimum health.

Years later, even after the crazy-life began to slowly dissipate, what I discovered was that my body had already suffered the consequences. The damage was done and it was going to take time to correct it and get back on track. But, for me, it would get worse before it got better. My husband and I had to learn to let things go.

2005 (Age 39)

The photo of me to the right was taken in 2005 during an interview for a documentary and right after the birth of our youngest son. Recently, when reviewing this video, my husband and I were startled to see how ill I looked. I was only 39 years old.

Our Move to the Midwest

In 2006, during the week of my 40th birthday, we moved from Southeast Texas to Central Illinois and settled into a quiet place in the country where my husband had accepted a pastorate. But, while we were relieved to have the burden of multiple businesses lifted, there were parts of ministry life that continued to be very stressful to us both.

Tired in 2008

Just a couple of months after we moved, our oldest daughter, Christa, got married. Having lived in temporary housing for a month, wedding planning took place in the midst of boxes and getting to know our new surroundings. In addition, finances were tight, so eating healthy was sometimes achallenge, and the stress of paying bills weighed heavily upon us both.

Over the next year, I wrote a book that turned out to be quite controversial (controversy is stressful!), continued my speaking engagements, homeschooled my children, and supported my husband’s ministry at our church. Life was full.

Between 2006-2013, three more children were married and ministry life was beginning to take a toll on the health of our family as a whole. The photo of my husband and I above was taken between 2007-2008. I was tired. My husband was tired too; but, as the eternal optimist, it took him a while to notice. This was when I first started to realize something would eventually have to change.

Starting to Notice

While I knew I didn’t feel good, it was so gradual that I figured it was just the aging process, and this was how life would have to be.

nervous systemI had dark circles under my eyes, my skin was pale, my hair was thinning and dry, and note how tired my eyes look. I couldn’t even read to my kids without falling asleep. But as sleepy as I was, I felt like my nerves were on the outside of my skin. I began to avoid driving because I was so jumpy. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

Often, we don’t pay attention to our health until we become afraid of losing it. We accept that slow decline way too early in life because we don’t pay enough attention to the red flags. We are negligent about what we eat, the stress load we accept, and the toxins with which we fill our lives.

Energy for the Good Fight!

Personally, as a Christian, I want to be as healthy and full of life as I can be, so that I have the energy and emotional stability to impact my family and others for Christ. Obviously, our spiritual health is the basis for it all, but I have found that it makes perfect Christian sense to reduce stress when possible and keep my body nourished and well balanced. And, as a mom, when I feel better, I am not as tempted to sin with my tongue or my attitude.

When I’m exhausted or emotionally “buzzed” from fatigue and roller coaster emotions, I find it much more difficult to work hard, avoid sinful responses, be faithful with what I’m called to do, or even to read my Bible!

In February 2010, I found an integrative doctor who helped me find answers. One month later, a dear friend introduced me to Young Living and I joined.

The Young Living Journey Begins

In 2010, a friend introduced me to Young Living and I joined. This is when I began my slow journey to wellness. Since then, I’ve had a chance to study, clear my head, and get a little further down the road. So I thought I’d share a bit with you some of the lifestyle changes I made.

In addition to eliminating gluten from my diet, which blood tests revealed I was highly allergic to, I made some major lifestyle changes. I also got serious about detoxing my home and my body. I switched to all-natural cleaning products (I am in love with my Thieves Household Cleaner). I started using Young Living’s beauty/skin products, and I found a more natural brand of makeup.

Part of my daily regiment began to include two to six ounces of NingXia Red, an immune system-supporting antioxidant beverage loaded with nutrition, and natural energy for my tired body!

August 2014

Healthy Choices!

whole food diet, sunshine, deliberate stress reduction, supplements, essential oils, NingXia Red, the Psalms, financial relief, some healthy “down time,” and a focus on the simpler things in life were all part of the changes that finally helped direct me to a healthier lifestyle! And what a difference it has made!

I chose essential oils that helped to support a healthy endocrine system, digestive system, immune system, and central nervous system. I diffused them, inhaled them on my hands, rubbed them into my temples and the bottoms of my feet, and I even ingested my vitality oils in a capsule or a spoonful of honey. Our home smelled amazing and our whole family began to feel more relaxed…and energized. It was a great combination!

Our first-ever true vacation with the kids in August 2014. Thanks to our Young Living lifestyle, we could finally afford it! One week of down-time in a gorgeous, secluded vacation home overlooking Table Rock Lake in Missouri.

With my head cleared and my energy restored, I began to realize that what we put in and on our bodies matters. What we inhale, eat, drink, and slather all of our bodies makes a difference one way or the other. Stress drains us. A lack of sunshine effects us – Vitamin D is important! Many people are all into their supplements, daily exercise, and even essential oils, but they still use toxic chemicals on their skin and in their homes, eat their junk food, smoke, and work themselves silly.

Our Diamond Retreat trip to Paris in April 2015 – paid for by Young Living!

What I discovered, is that Young Living isn’t just about essential oils; it’s a lifestyle change. It caused me to pay more attention to my health and the health of my family. It encouraged me to study and then to start teaching other women all that I was learning about health, diet, wellness, and essential oils. It caused me to realize the importance of the Christian’s response to God’s gift of oils – gifts straight from His hand at Creation.

Our family is healthier because of it. We’ve been able to get out of debt, work together as a family again, reduce stress, and for the very first time, truly relax and vacation together!

God used Young Living to equip our family with the products and the income we needed to enjoy our health and to spend more time together.

And, perhaps, that was the biggest blessing of all.

Remember the old “Calgon, take me away” commercial in the 70’s? That lady didn’t need a bubble bath; she needed vetiver! Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of an introvert, but I can go on overload when I’m around crowds for too long. I also have the same reaction to loud or chaotic music or noise.

So, when I get that “feeling”, or when one of my children is having a tough time focusing or is feeling overstimulated by his/her surroundings, we apply a little vetiver to the bottoms of our feet, ankles, and temples (undiluted). Then we inhale what remains on our hands. I love the relaxing result!

A Mother’s Best Friend

A few years ago, I ordered it for one of my daughters who often struggles with sensory overload. When we first opened the bottle, we weren’t sure what we thought; but, once we applied it, we were captivated by the mysterious scent, and found that we really loved it!

Many parents believe that vetiver essential oil (along with a lot of love and Christian nurturing) is a miracle maker. It is making a huge difference in the lives of multitudes of struggling children.

Vetiver is a very dark and viscous (thick and syrupy) essential oil. The aroma is earthy, sweet, and full of life! It reminds me of an early morning walk through a lush green forest filled with damp grasses, ferns, and wild herbs. Like myrrh, vetiver oil has excellent fixative properties; that’s why it’s often used in perfumes.

And Vetiver has a calming and soothing effect on those who need of a good night’s sleep! Just slather it on before bed and enjoy!

The Change of Life

The closer I got to fifty, the more sensitive I became to noise, crowds, and chaos! Once I discovered vetiver, I was in love!

Since vetiver is so thick, and because I only use it topically, I go ahead and dilute it with avocado or sweet almond oil and put one of Young Living’s stainless steel roller balls on the end to make it easy to apply.

And, on those days when my nerves feel like they’re on the outside of my skin, I roll a little bit onto my temples and wrists and inhale the exotic aroma. Mmmmm…

Even if you don’t think you need vetiver yourself, it’s a good oil to have on hand when friends come to visit! You never know who you may wind up helping! And what a great gift idea for an overwhelmed mom! Spread the love!

Play Time!

The marriage bed is like a playground! It’s a place to make memories and have fun together. A place to sometimes get hot and sweaty and run through the sprinkler, but also a place to experience emotional release, sunshine, comfort…bliss! More than anything though, it’s a place to “become one.”

The Brain: The Most Important Part of Sexuality

Beyond fun, intimacy (and especially climax) causes the release of oxytocin, an important hormone in the brain—a hormone that is known to promote emotional bonding.

Oxytocin, combined with the way essential oils affect the limbic system of the brain (the area that controls emotions and stores memories), make essential oils a powerful and influential bonding tool— even a protection—for the marriage bed.

A bundle of myrrh is my beloved to me, that lies all night between my breasts. (Song of Solomon 1:13)

The Intoxicating Bedroom

The custom of scenting the bed chamber is an ancient one that goes back thousands of years! The exotic scents and sensations of essential oils will help make the marriage bed an aromatically rich, exciting, and pleasing experience for you both!

Prepare the Royal Chamber

After cleaning your room, mist the sheets with your favorite pillow spray (recipe below). Please do NOT use any sort of synthetic fragrance on yourself or your bedding! Check out my all-natural cologne recipe HERE.

Just before beginning your evening, start with a warm, lightly scented bath (recipes for tub tea HERE or Dreamy Bath Soak recipes HERE). Pay attention to which oils you chose for your pillow spray, so you don’t have clashing scents in the room!

“I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon…” (Proverbs 7:17)

Now, decide which Bedside Oils you’re going to use for the evening and place them in a decorative candy or tidbit bowl on a pretty tray beside your bed. Then, pour your favorite carrier oil (olive, almond, avocado etc.) into a decorative cruet and place beside the bowl for mixing later. Again, consider the oils you’re using in other areas of the room.

You may also want to have on hand glasses for drinks, dark chocolate, whipped cream, fresh berries etc. Prepare any other massage tools you’ll want to use. Playing is fun!

If it’s cold, you may want to warm your carrier oil in a small electric dip warmer ahead of time. I like to make sure my essential oils are never heated, so that they retain their therapeutic qualities. So, if you want to heat your carrier oil, I suggest you apply it to the skin separately from the essential oils.

Engage all the Senses!

Remember to consider all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell). Scatter unscented soy or beeswax candles around the room or string lights across your bed or ceiling (sight). Turn off bright lights, computers, television, phones, etc.

Turn off the ringer on your phone and play soft music, creating a haven of peace (sound). Even the sound of a running bath can be romantic (but don’t forget it’s running!).

Taste can be an aphrodisiac too! Get creative with that whipped cream, those juicy berries, or creamy chocolate…don’t forget the chocolate!

Adding a little peppermint essential oil to a creamy chocolate massage oil like the one HERE may be just the memory-maker you need for your personal playground! Get creative!

I only recommend Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, since I know and trust their quality first hand, and because lower quality oils may be dangerous.

Read No Shades of Grey: A Black and White Seduction of the Mind – “Within the realm of marriage, the power of oxytocin is an awesome gift that promotes affection, excitement, and trust; it’s one aspect of the “glue” that God uses to bring two people together as “one flesh.” And within the mother-child relationship it creates a strong, foundational bond that is very difficult to recover if forfeited, neglected, or lost.”

Did you know that scent can powerfully affect your emotions? Out of all five senses, our sense of smell is the only one directly linked to the limbic system in the brain, our emotional control center. What this means is that scent can impact not just emotion, but the body’s physical response to it. Mood matters.

“A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

Your Nose Knows!

When our nose detects a scent, it means that tiny molecules have evaporated from an object and entered the nose. Sincean essential oil is volatile (it basically evaporates at room temperature), its molecules literally leap into the air!

When we inhale essential oils (or anything else), these molecules travel up through our nostrils sending messages to the olfactory system through receptors. The receptors in turn transfer the information from these molecules to the brain. This results in our “sense of smell.”

Memories are Powerful!

The olfactory bulb, which is part of the limbic system, captures information through the sense of smell, helping to record a memory. That’s why you can walk into an antique store and have flashbacks of your grandma’s house; or smell acertain perfume and it reminds you of someone from your childhood or a memory from your wedding day.

Because of this, and the powerful nature of essential oils, many researchers believe that essential oils can be extremely helpful to those sorting through past memories.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!

What happens when you’re stressed? There is an actual, measurable, physical response to it. Stress and anxious feelings are known to sap our energy, affect our skin, aggravate our muscles and nerves, disrupt digestion, affect our sleep, and make us prone to all sorts of negativity. So relax and stop stressing!

Since the limbic system is directly connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, digestion, blood pressure, breathing, stress levels, sexual arousal, and hormone balance, the use of therapeutic grade essential oils in our daily lives can have profound overall effects on our general well-being.

Mama Said There’d be Days Like This

When I’m working through a conflict or struggling with a spiritual issue, I often diffuse and apply frankincense, vetiver, or Neroli, and find a quiet spot alone for reflexion. This helps me to focus while I seek God through His Word and prayer.

Obviously, true spiritual healing and forgiveness come only through Jesus Christ, but we all know that negative emotions often cause physical symptoms. Our emotions are part of our physical make up, so it makes sense that essential oils are a benefit to us!

Essential oils help to set a good mood! Our thoughts matter – they affect us physically and spiritually!

“Thoughts are real, physical things that occupy mental real estate. Moment by moment, every day, you are changing the structure of your brain through your thinking.” ― Caroline Leaf, Switch On Your Brain

In other words, essential oils simply support the body’s natural functions! They help the body to do what it’s already designed by God to do – harmonize!

A Well Oiled Machine!

A lifestyle change that includes supplementation, deliberate relaxation, and clean thinking may be exactly what you need to rejuvenate your health! Thankfully, Young Living has many products that will help support your efforts! And I can even help you get wholesale prices, as well as earn points for FREE products!

The following is a list of just a few Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and supplements that I recommend!

Singles:

Bergamot – Relaxing qualities and an amazing scent – especially when mixed with frankincense! Diffuse in a room with a comfortable chair and enjoy!

Frankincense – This oil just makes me happy! Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes, which stimulate the limbic system of the brain. Create a safe and comforting environment when you diffuse or inhale this empowering oil—a perfect opportunity to collect your thoughts. When you seek purpose or engage in prayer or meditate on God’s Word, use this oil to enhance your experience.

Neroli –  A powerfully relaxing scent used to calm, uplift, and help one sort through emotions. And add a drop to your evening moisturizer to enjoy radiant skin the next morning!

Vetiver – See if this doesn’t help little Johnny pay attention! Rub a drop on the back of his neck or on the bottoms of his feet before school. Moms love this oil for their kids and for themselves too!

In fact, vetiver is a great choice for mom to use during the weeks after childbirth! And a great one to help her cope better during stressful days or to get over upsetting events. Best used with a roller ball, since this oil is viscous (super thick!).

Lemon, Tangerine, and Orange – Happy oils!

Spikenard – Encourages a good night’s sleep and helps calm edgy feelings. This oils was poured on the feet of Jesus during a potentially stressful time.

Valerian – Encourages calm feelings and restful sleep.

Ylang Ylang – Relaxing (yet also arousing) scent often associated with romance and emotional bonding

Blends:

Inner Child – This blend encourages your mind and body to prayerfully deal with unresolved issues.

Peace & Calming – The name says it all!

Sara – Helps to productively deal with past issues.

Stress Away – Promotes rest and relaxation.Feelings2

Tranquil – Contains lavender, cedarwood, and chamomile. All three of these oils have been well documented in helping to induce relaxation.

Trauma Life – This blend aids the body’s normal response to stress and helps you deal with it by promoting a healthy emotional perspective.

The Reconnect Kit – This is a powerful emotional bonding tool. Great for use while building strong, healthy relationships.

Feelings Kit – Blends that focus specifically on the emotions.

In addition to using essential oils, be sure to take care of your body in other ways:

  • Get enough sleep!
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Spend time each day in prayer and reading Scripture
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Avoid processed food, white flour, white sugar, MSG, food dyes, preservatives, and other harmful chemicals
  • Detoxify your home – and try the essential oil-infused Thieves cleaning products instead.
  • Have your progesterone levels checked. Sometimes hormone imbalances are the source of emotional upheaval
  • Take a good multivitamin supplement like Master Formula
  • Make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D and Vitamin C (I recommend plenty of sunshine, the Orthomolecular brand of Vitamin D-3, and Super C.
  • Use Mineral Essence (a balanced, full-spectrum ionic mineral complex enhanced with essential oils)
  • Use Essentialzyme 4 (enzymes) as well as Life 9 (probiotic) after meals and at bedtime. Good gut health is crucial!
  • Use Super B (a comprehensive vitamin complex containing 8 essential and energy-boosting B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12.
  • Use OmegaGize (an omega3, DHA-rich fish oil complex) daily. Also contains Vitamin D-3.
  • Drink 2-6 oz. NingXia Red per day
  • Sulfurzyme, taken daily, combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies.
  • Support normal adrenal function! When under stress, the body produces cortisol. When cortisol is produced too frequently, it can have negative health consequences.If that’s the case, you may want to add Cortistop, a dietary supplement designed to help the body maintain its natural balance and harmony.
  • Support normal thyroid function! Mine was underperforming and I didn’t even know it. Thyromin helps to support normal thyroid function. The endocrine system works synergistically, so if one thing is off, it can throw everything off! Read more HERE.

DISCLAIMER: God designed the marriage bed to be exciting, beautiful, exhilarating, and EXCLUSIVE! My husband and I have often told those we’ve counseled, “Christian couples should have the most passionate, fun bedrooms in the world!”

That’s why this portion of my website is here. I want to help women experience the breathtaking joy of godly sexual intimacy! While these articles are written for married women, and I’ve tried to be as discreet as possible, please enter at your own risk.

A bundle of myrrh is my beloved to me, that lies all night between my breasts. (Song of Solomon 1:13)

I love our bedroom. Not just because it’s been freshly remodeled (though I love that too!); but also because it’s a place of beauty and intimacy – a quiet retreat from the world for “just the two of us.”

I realized recently that, too often, we women spend more time planning dinner than we do planning a night of bonding with our husbands. And then we wonder why we’re having “hamburger helper” love making instead of filet mignon! Throw out the fast food intimacy and let’s do it right!

Use the Five “P”s to get your “love nest” ready for a night of bliss!

  1. Pristine! Declutter your space! Your room doesn’t have to be Pinterest-worthy, but it can be neat and tidy. Dirty laundry and a pile of bills on the dresser are not considered aphrodisiacs. No, really.
  2.  Purify! Make sure your love nest is spic and span! Dust the furniture, clean the master bath, mop the floors, and make sure the sheets are fresh and clean! I recommend Young Living’s essential oil-based Thieves Household Cleaner. You certainly don’t want an awful chemical smell in your sanctuary of love!
  3. Pump! Flirt with him! Create anticipation during the day with notes, texts, and even brief whispers reminding him of what’s in store! If you get to see him during the day, make sure those brief touches count! If possible, give him an enticing foretaste of the sensual pleasures to come. Get creative! Let him dream about the evening ahead!
  4. Primp! Take a shower or bath, do your hair, lipstick, etc. Put more effort into getting ready for your sweet husband than you do anyone else! Use your favorite (or his) “bedroom oils” on your thighs, neck, and under your navel. Ask him if he wants to inhale a little sample…kind of like an appetizer.
  5. Prepare! Here’s where it gets fun! Find a pretty candy or tidbit bowl and put a tsp. of a carrier oil inside (I suggest avocado or sweet almond).Mix in your favorite essential oils for intimacy and place beside the bed for later. (I’ve included recipes below, but you could also use one of Young Living’s pre-mixed blends) 
    All you’ll need to do is reach over and dip your hand into the bowl – no distractions! Your bedside oils can be used for a full body massage,http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-romantic-view-aromatherapy-candles-luxurious-evening-image32520830 lubrication, or “intimate massage.” Live a little!

I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, on the handles of the lock. (Song of Solomon 5:5)

The Brain and Emotional Bonding

Most “sensually inspiring” essential oils work in part by initiating a warm sensation, stimulating the body, and arousing passion with their rich, exotic aroma of spicy or floral notes.

The custom of scenting the bed chamber is an ancient one that goes back thousands of years! The exotic aroma and sensations of essential oils will help make the marriage bed an aromatically rich, exciting, and pleasing experience for you both!

“I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon…” (Proverbs 7:17)

Historically, the euphoric properties of oils like ylang ylang, myrrh, sandalwood, rose, and patchouli have been used to enhance intimacy aromatically and topically.

Myrrh, which in my opinion smells best when blended with other oils, is mentioned seven times in the Song of Solomon! Is it any wonder that some believe Myrrh can help support better balance and enhanced intimacy? Because of its viscosity, it also helps extend the scent of other oils.

Intimacy, and especially climax, causes the release of oxytocin, an important hormone in the brain—a hormone that is known to promote emotional bonding. Nursing mothers even bond with their babies because of this hormone, which is also released during lactation.

This fact, combined with the way essential oils effect the limbic system of the brain, the area that controls emotions and stores memories, turns essential oils into a powerful and influential tool— even a protection—for the marriage bed! Treasure and enjoy these precious drops of joy in a bottle! You won’t be sorry!

A bundle of myrrh is my beloved to me, that lies all night between my breasts. (Song of Solomon 1:13)

Combine the deep, intoxicating effects of essential oils with an evening of loving, sensual touch to arouse intense desire between you and your husband! You’ll be amazed how “on board” he suddenly becomes with your essential oil habit! In fact, you may come home to find a new stash of oils on your bed each night!

“How much better than wine is your love, and the scent of your perfumes.” Song of Solomon 4:10

Scent and touch are such an amazing combination for bonding with your lover. A memory maker, a bonder, a scent-sual responder! Oh yeah!

Take Your Time

And remember, just like anything of value, practice. makes. perfect. The more the better!

And while you’re practicing, take the time to study and recognize one another’s desires and prompts.

Does his breathing increase or do you sense an excited response? Keep going. Does he not seem to respond? Try something else. Experiment. You have all night, darling. Take your time!

Be sure to let him know what works and doesn’t work. I assure you, it’s totally worth it to be honest about what you like and don’t like right from the beginning. Otherwise, you may spend years in futility.

Allow yourself time to relax and enjoy—to willingly respond and engage. Take the time to relish his touch – to memorize it – to linger on the very thought. To imagine. Explore, feel, taste, smell, listen, watch, communicate, reveal, and enjoy!

My beloved put his hand
By the latch of the door,
And my heart yearned for him. – Song of Solomon 5:4

The “yearning” feeling is what we’re after. So, set out right from the beginning with a mutual decision to take. your. time. Most women spend more time planning dinner than they do planning a night of bliss with hubby.

If you prepare a peanut butter and jelly night, it may be just what you get! So PLAN for filet mignon! Clean your bedroom, take a shower or bath, fix yourself up, light candles, string lights, scent your sheets, and get ready for the best part of the day!

Men are created so differently than women. Many women who seem to have cooled off in the bedroom simply aren’t giving themselves enough time to get going. That’s why practicing the art of intimate touch using essential oils may be exactly what you both need to heat things up! Neither one of you will be sorry!

Which Oils are Best?

There are plenty of oils that are excellent choices for the bedroom, but I’m going to give you just a few in this post. No worries – there will be many more to come! Tips and testimonies! I’ll also throw in some great recipes (massage oils, lube oils, pillow sprays, tasting fun etc.) to get things cooking! So keep a look out!

Some simple “getting started” oils to have on hand are peppermint, ylang ylang, and Sensation. Ylang ylang and Sensation are great used in an all-over-body or “intimate” massage oil. 

Sandalwood, rose, neroli, myrrh, and Lady Sclereol, as well as the Young Living blends, Present Time, Three Wise Men, and Live Your Passion, are some of my favorite recommendations for intimate massage and sensual exploration.

Sandalwood’s mysterious musky aroma blends particularly well with the body’s own natural scent, making it perfect for a romantic evening.

Misty Moisty Mama

Most of the oils I recommend can be used intimately and applied directly to “sensitive” areas. Yes, really. A woman I know recently told me that she discovered the blend Lady Sclereol helped with occasional dryness, and its gentle warmth helped to stimulate libido when applied/massaged…um…“directly!” (Yes, THERE!) Live a little!

I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, on the handles of the lock. (Song of Solomon 5:5)

You can also apply a drop or two of Clary Sage, Sensation, or Lady Sclereol (undiluted) to the inner thighs and pubic bone before…bed.

If you’re not into mixing your own massage oils, Young Living offers Sensation Massage Oil that is absolutely intoxicating!

Tell hubby you need a little priming first, and see if he minds getting you warmed up with a nice, stimulating intimate massage. I bet he volunteers for the job! And tell him it will be worth the wait.

“Turn up the Heat” Lubricant*

  • 1 tsp. carrier oil
  • 15 drops Sensation Oil
  • 5 drop black pepper
  • 1 drop bergamot

Or, if you’re feeling daring, and want something a little more “tingly” for intimate massage or lubrication, try mixing a drop or two of peppermint, black pepper, or ginger into a carrier oil like sweet almond or coconut oil. Wow! But remember, a little dab’ll do ya!

Once again, while most of these oils can be used neat (undiluted), I still suggest that you have a carrier oil on hand “just in case.” Everybody’s sensitivity tolerance is different, so try experimenting on less sensitive areas first.

Warning: Be ready! Essential oils in the bedroom can cause PFST (Post Fantastic Stress Transformer). May I suffer from it and never recover!!!! The brain often associates scents with memories; so, be ready to have flashbacks of the exotic evening you had with your beloved every time you smell your favorite intimacy oils…and try not to blush in public!

*Because everyone is different, I would suggest having a carrier oil available (V6, olive oil, coconut oil etc., just in case you or your husband find any of the oils a little too stimulating. And NEVER use a spicy oil on sensitive skin without diluting with a carrier oil.

NOTE: I only recommend Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, since lower quality oils may be toxic.

Remember cinnamon tooth picks? We weren’t allowed to take them to school because someone might “hurt themselves,” which made them all the more precious. Soaked in fiery cinnamon, sucking on one of these toothpicks was kind of like eating red hots, without all the chemicals and nasty dyes.

I decided, since I have pure, therapeutic-grade cinnamon essential oil, that I would take a shot at making my own batch of “Fire Sticks.” They turned out really well, so when my daughter, Jessica, walked into the room, I asked her if she wanted to try one. She looked at me with a blank stare, “You want me to try a toothpick?”

“Well, I don’t want you to take a bite out of it, if that’s what you mean!”

She put one in her mouth and looked a little surprised. “That’s really good!”

How have my children gotten through life without ever having tried a Fire Stick? And we homeschool for crying out loud!

How about you? Would you like to make a batch? I decided I’m putting them in the gift baskets I’m making this Christmas. Share the love!

 

Homemade Cinnamon Sticks

100 plain, round, wooden toothpicks
15-20 drops of Young Living Vitality Cinnamon essential oil
2 T. vodka or Pure Vanilla Extract (not imitation)
(if using the vodka option, 1 drop liquid Stevia will sweeten it up)
1 glass jar

Place toothpicks into jar. Blend together alcohol, essential oil, and Stevia and sprinkle directly on top of the toothpicks. Seal the jar, and distribute the mixture over the toothpicks by shaking. Store in a dark place for at least 48 hours, shaking the jar several times a day.

Once the sticks have been thoroughly infused, remove them from liquid and lay them on a paper towel to dry.

Essential oil-based products (and all food products) are best stored in glass. But, for my gift baskets, I like to put them in mini paper envelopes or muslin drawstring bags (found at craft stores).vial

You could also use glass tubes with corks, which are super cute. You can order those HERE:

Interesting Facts about Cinnamon:

Historically, the power and pleasure of cinnamon has been used in many cultures for various natural benefits. The most widely used part of cinnamon is its bark.

It is believed that cinnamon supports the normal secretion of breast milk. In addition, a water-soluble polyphenol compound called MHCP is abundant in cinnamon. Do some research on that sometime!

Cinnamon Bark essential oil promotes a healthy immune response, and helps maintain a healthy lifestyle regimen*. Cinnamon has been used traditionally for thousands of years as a spice, and provides a spicy and delicious addition when cooking or baking. This oil includes the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde, and is an important ingredient in many Young Living products including Thieves®, Abundance™, and Inner Defense™.

If cinnamon isn’t your thing, you could use Young Living’s Vitality peppermint, spearmint, Thieves, fennel, orange, lemon, or whatever your favorite tasting oil is!
