To add a little “spice” to the bedroom, create this romantic blend to have on hand at all times.
The Romantic Bedroom Blend
- 8 drops Palma Rosa
- 4 drops Lime
- 2 drops Clary sage
- 2 drops Nutmeg
- 1-2 drops Cinnamon Bark
- 1 drop Ylang ylang
Mix in these proportions together in a darkly colored glass bottle, and fill the rest of the way with vodka (helps the oils remain suspended), witch hazel, or distilled water with a pinch of salt. Spritz around the room and enjoy.
It’s February which means everywhere you turn, Love is in the Air.

Did you know that you could enhance the experience and flavor of a good glass of wine simply by adding essential oil to the moment? Have I peaked your interest? Well then let me share with you what I have learned…
When selecting a wine, I learned that there are a few categories and terms to choose from. Terms such as woodsy, warm, crisp, fruity, floral, etc… You can do the same with essential oils and pair them accordingly. Let me show you how:
Riesling, for example, would pair well with a fruity essential oil such as mandarine, tangerine, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, jade lemon, or a fruity blend such as Citrus Fresh.
A woodsy wine would pair well with cedarwood, juniper, spruce, or fir.
A more floral based wine could pair lavender, rose, geranium, etc…
When talking about pairing essential oils with wine, there are two ways to enjoy this combination. One is simply inhaling the paired essential oil by running a diffuser in the desired room. The other would be to add to your glass, bottle, or recipe of the chosen drink of choice. Here are a few fun recipes to try.
The wonderful thing about adding essential oils to the evening is that they don’t interfere with the wine, they enhance it. May you take delight in trying something new with your next glass of wine.
