The Song of Solomon is regarded as a song between a man, his bride. and the yearning cry of his body. We believe that cry is the cry for love. Love given and love received in all its glory, a pure, eager, beautiful and passionate love that comes from deep within him and her. It’s a powerful yet tender gift that is given by our Father in Heaven and leads to a loving covenant relationship within a marriage and intended for the whole nature of man and woman.
Perfuming the marriage bed is an ancient custom used to prepare the bedchamber with an enticing aroma for sensual pleasure. This aroma often dispels feelings of anxiousness, exhaustion and stress enabling couples to relax while stimulating emotions that awaken their intimate feeling for each other. The euphoric effects of essential oils and their properties have been used to enhance intimacy both aromatically and topically. Sandalwood, patchouli, ylang ylang, myrrh and rose are just a few of my favorites to prepare for a beautiful night of romance and intimacy.
To prepare, I like to make sure our home is free of clutter; the dust bunnies are gone (this always turns him on), and there are clean scented linen adorning our marriage bed. The exotic scent of patchouli and ylang ylang running through our diffuser starts my thinking about all the ways I love my man. His gentle touch, kind word, his focus on taking care of our family and of course I think he’s the hottest man alive!

Other ideas for creating the intimacy you desire to awaken the love that brought you and your soul mate together are discovering what essential aromas turn your intimacy meter on. Are you both exhausted from a long day of work, taking care of the kids, or honestly from days of just not being able to share the intimacy you desire! Smelling different scents and seeing what ‘turns’ each other on is a way of creating intimacy. Combining your favorites with fractionated coconut oil into a massage oil will not only end up creating your personalized blend but also memories that will be triggered upon smelling one of those scents again.
