This past weekend I attended a small (yet super fun and festive) event where love was in the air.
We had booths set up with fun items for sale, different desserts, and some health info from me and the essential oils I use and love.
Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, a day of love, I thought I’d make a few things to get attendees in the mood… check out this sexual harmony kit guide. 😉
Because each oil is associated with an emotion, they can be powerful aphrodisiacs, along with supporting healthy emotions- of any kind! That’s one thing I LOVE about the oils. Take Wild Orange, or instance: The Oil of Abundance. It has a beautiful, delicious aroma and then add on the wonderful emotional support of creativity, abundance, love, acceptance! It’s just… happy. 🙂
And each oil helps address quite a few health concerns, so picking out a few and combining them gives you a recipe for natural wellness and vitality!
Hello Cinnamon Bark! The Oil of Sexual Harmony, I’ve been diffusing Cinnamon Bark throughout my house like crazy (hey, why not?!). I add it daily to my coffee, homemade applesauce, occasional cinnamon cookie, and smoothie. It’s INCREDIBLE. And my favorite. 🙂 Nice little side benefits, too…
Anyway, back to the event. Below are some photos and ideas (recipes too!) to get your mojo going this Valentine’s Day!
Better YOUR Sex Chocolates
- 1 package of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (or other high quality dark chocolate)
- 5-8 drops of essential oil of choice: Peppermint, Cinnamon, Lavender, Wild Orange are the best!
In a microwaveable bowl, add chocolate chips and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir, then microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
Remove from microwave and allow to cool for 1 minute (you NEVER want to heat the essential oils- they will lose their therapeutic benefits!) and add 5-8 drops of yoru favorite essential oil. Stir well.
On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spoon chocolate onto the paper, spreading across the paper. You can make this as thick as you’d like.
Place in freezer for 5 minutes. Remove and break into pieces.
Keren’s Cinnamon-Spiked Applesauce
- 5+ apples, roughly chopped, stems and seeds removed
- 1/4 lemon, rind and all (washed)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3-4 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil (doTERRA brand for quality)
Place apples, lemon, and cinnamon into a crockpot. Fill with about 2 cups of water, or just enough to cover the bottom of the apples- not too much, you can always add more later.
Cook apples on low to medium heat in the crockpot until apples are mushy and soft.
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add in Cinnamon Bark essential oil, stirring well. ENJOY!
NOTE: Could also add some additional flavor and variety with using Lemon, Lime, or Wild Orange essential oils!
Wild Orange & Cinnamon Strawberry Kiss Dip
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 3 tbsp honey, melted (can sub Stevia)
- 2-5 drops Wild Orange essential oil
- 2-5 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
- strawberries (as many as you’d like)
Combine yogurt, melted honey, and essential oils, stirring well.
Dice a handful of strawberries finely and add to yogurt mixture.
Use remaining strawberries to dip into Cinnamon Dip.
DIY Essential Champagne
- 1 bottle Prosecco or Champagne
- 1-2 drop Essential Oils: Grapefruit, Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, Ginger, Basil, Lemongrass, or Lavender
- optional orange juice
Fill your glass with Prosecco.
Add 1-2 drops of your favorite EO.
Splash with a bit of orange juice and serve!
Drink the benefits!
It was fun meeting new people, having them experience the oils, taste, smell, touch, and then giving them a wellness consult!
Would YOU like a wellness consult….? (let me know!)
