New year, new you! That’s the phrase that always pops up at the beginning of January, but all this pressure to stick with New Year’s Resolutions can be stressful. Whether you’re focusing on relieving stress, upping your game in the bedroom, or increasing your focus, we have a few solutions to help you along the way. The secret? Essential oils.

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts. They’re made by steaming or pressing parts of a plant to capture the compounds that produce fragrance. These can be used in aromatherapy (a practice that’s been around for centuries) or they can be applied topically to the skin. Studies have shown that essential oils may help boost your mood, reduce stress, increase attentiveness, improve sleep, reduce inflammation, and relieve headaches.

Pure Romance’s essential oil blends help balance your mind and body while invigorating your libido, boosting your confidence, and so much more. Breathe deep and indulge in true “scentual” healing. Here are some common essential oil ingredients that you can find in our products.

  • Peppermint: used to boost energy and aid digestion. This is a powerful oil that’s used in three of our products, Open Sesame, Kick Start, Rise & Grind.
  • Lavender: used to relieve stress. It is a main ingredient of Now & Zen.
  • Sandalwood: used to calm nerves and help with focus. It can be found in Hello Libido.
  • Rose: used to improve mood and reduce anxiety. It is in Firm Believer.
  • Chamomile: used to improve mood and relaxation. It is featured in Be Kind Unwind.
  • Ylang-Ylang: used to treat headaches, nausea, and skin conditions. It is used in Hello Libido.
  • Tea Tree: used to fight infections and boost immunity. You can find it in Open Sesame and Miracle Oil
  • Lemon: used to aid digestion, mood, headaches, and more. It is an ingredient in Hello Libido and  Open Sesame.
