Have you ever wondered if love potions actually work? Throughout history, people have been using all sorts of items to induce romantic feelings, including parts from bugs, animals, and humans. Yuck! In North America, natives once made love potions with Ginseng root. Ginseng is known to increase energy levels, decrease inflammation, and more. Many herbs encourage our well-being and thus allow us to have better relationships. Lucky for us, love potions aren’t quite what they used to be. They are simpler and easier to obtain.
If you’re looking to spice up your love life and create deeper connections in relationships, try Young Living’s essential oils. Use the oil “Joy” (made from hundreds of rose petals), lavender (for calming), or “Sensation” to set the mood. Put them in the bath, diffuse, or apply to the skin. You can also choose one of their special massage oils for a soothing experience. Healthy human touch creates wellness for the mind, body, and soul.
However, not all “love potions” have to be an actual brew. There are many romantic items and activities out there. Typically, we give chocolates, flowers, perfume, or diamonds to show love on Valentine’s Day. This year, go more natural by picking your own desert flowers, gifting essential oils, sharing “treats” that stimulate vitality or giving naturally-occurring stones like rose quartz or jade. While both crystals aid the heart chakra, rose quartz opens us up to all forms of outside love, and jade provides a sense of inner acceptance and calm.
Be sure to evoke the individual romance as well! Remind yourself why it’s so good to be you. Take a personal date in nature and get grounded in the earth. Being outdoors is cleansing. Go a step further by inviting an animal friend. Chance a desert ride on a horse or walk the dogs. Make sure to get some you time –and don’t forget the love.
