10 Essential Oils for Romance with Diffuser Blends

Valentine's Day is almost here and it is a great excuse to get a little more romantic with your partner. Here are some essential oils for romance you can use to help set the mood, with 10 diffuser blend recipes!

Whether you enjoy floral, citrus, or spice...check out some of the top romance oils. Think about what your partner likes too so you can take that into consideration.

I learned the hard way that my husband wasn't fond of patchouli oil, reminds him too much of incense, too bad I already had it on as a body oil :(  When I use it around him now, I make sure to blend it with citrus oils to enhance the aroma so it is less patchouli smelling :)
