#BDSM 101 – A is for AROMA PLAY

Candles at night

Aroma Play

Certain smells can induce certain emotions. By burning scented candles and oil and letting the smell permeate through the room, you can create a unique mood or atmosphere for your scene. They can also be combined within a carrier oil for a sensual massage to heighten foreplay, as  a prelude to love-making. Here’s a little guide to what does what:

Basil essential oil is very uplifting, energising and excellent for awakening tired bodies and minds.

Bergamot is refreshing, relaxing and stress-relieving. A good one to use after a long day at the office.

Chamomile is very gentle and great for easing away aches, pains and general moodiness. It’s properties are soothing and relaxing.

Eucalyptus is great for focusing concentration and if often used to clear the head when faced with nasty coughs and colds. Has a warming effect on the skin but will initially feel cool to the skin.

Geranium is good for neuralgia, stress, anxiety and depression. If you need a mood-lifter this balancing oil has a gentle, delightfully floral aroma that will please the senses and soothe the soul.

Ginger is warming and energising, and has a reputation as an aphrodisiac – so if you want to get your partner in the mood for fun and games, this may be a good scent to try. It is often used with a carrier oil to ease aching joints and the symptoms associated with cold and flu.

Jasmine has an incredible smell and is without compare in the flower word, in my humble opinion. It’s properties are calming, soothing, revitalising and sensual. When used in a carrier oil and massaged into the skin it is also used to treat aches and pains and ease depression.

Which is your favourite? Tell me why…?

*** Before using essential oils always read the cautions/contraindications on the accompanying leaflet. Some oils can be unsuitable during pregnancy etc.
