Essential Oils: My Five Favourite Essential Oils for Valentines Day


After a long, dark and quiet January, it's lovely to have something to look forward to! 

Valentines day is just around the corner. Whilst I don't buy too heavily into the commercialism of the whole thing, I do love having an extra day of the year where I can be reminded to take time to spend with Gary, and focus on just the two of us. 

As usual, there are oils that can help make your Valentines day even more special, no matter how you are celebrating. Here are my top five favourites! 






Elevation is dōTERRA's joyful blend. It contains Lavandin, Lavender, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus with Tangerine, Elemi, and Lemon Myrtle. This blend of essential oils re-energises the body and a positive frame of mind. 

I love this blend all year round, but I always make sure that I am diffusing Elevation for special occasions. It is so easy to get distracted by the one hundred and one things I have to do, and to forget to focus and concentrate on spending time with my loved ones, rather than worrying about everything else. 

So whether you have had a stressful day (week) at the office, the kids have been driving you nuts, or that you have a million household chores still to do, Elevation can help you to let go of all that negative energy and to restore your energy, so that you can enjoy your evening. 



Ylang Ylang is an extremely powerful aphrodisiac, for both men and women. It also helps to lessen anxiety. 

Only a tiny amount of Ylang Ylang is needed for you to feel it's full effects, so take it easy! Ylang Ylang is also extremely effective when a few drops are added to a lovely warm bath. So get the candles out and have a long soak! 



Patchouli is a great essential oil to soothe emotions. So it's a great oil to have on hand after an argument, or to help you to move on from a disagreement! 

Patchouli also helps to bring out emotional responses, so it's a perfect essential oil for valentines day. Patchouli is amazing when combined with Wild Orange, and used as a massage oil. 

So add three drops of Patchouli and four drops of Wild Orange to two tablespoons of massage lotion and massage away those niggles and get back in tune with your partner. 


Sandalwood is a really great essential oil to boost libido in men. It also smells delicious! It would be great combined with Patchouli as part of a couples massage. 





Clary Sage helps to balance and regulate hormones and keep you nice and grounded. Plus it's a great aphrodisiac for women, so make sure to apply it liberally this Valentines day! It can be applied to the soles of your feet and your ankles, to target the right reflexology points, and also used as part of a massage. 


I hope these essential oils help make Valentines day even more memorable!
