Do Not Awaken Love Before its Time…
I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
By the gazelles or by the does of the field,
Do not stir up nor awaken love
Until it pleases. (Song of Solomon 2:7)
…but once the time has come, stir things up a little with essential oils!
The Song of Solomon offers a poetic vignette of marital intimacy in all of its glory—in all of its purity, eagerness, and beauty…and in all of its passion! As young girls grow into women, God gifts them with tender emotions and powerful hormones, both of which support and promote God’s sovereign design for marriage and fertility within a loving covenant relationship.
Young women of all ages do well to heed the warning given to the daughters of Jerusalem not to stir love before it is lawfully able to be fulfilled, but what about after the celebration—after the consummation of marriage? What about pregnancy, and babies, and hormone fluctuations, and bills, and PMS, and stress…and what about menopause?
Renew the Marriage Bed at ANY age!
Prince Charming may have awakened his beloved, and they may have both enjoyed a full season of fervent, zealous intimacy together; but, what happens if Sleeping Beauty eventually falls asleep again? And this time a simple kiss isn’t doing the trick?
Aside from medical reasons, many times, both men and woman may lose their desire for intimacy due to occasional exhaustion, stress, a lack of sleep, age, or a plain old case of the blues. So, choosing essential oils that will help a couple to relax, while simultaneously stimulating the emotions, may be the best choice for awakening healthy intimacy.
So, try not to blush while I share with you a few ways essential oils might be used to rouse and stimulate the sleepy libido.
