Intimacy Opens Your Heart to Beautiful Lovemaking

February 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 281

Often a subject that some may find difficult to talk about, yet secretly desire to.

Discover how to awaken your senses and experience the passion within you through the art of using essential oils and other delights for love-making.

Here, I will share recipes and essential oils, however keep in mind that our own smell preference is vital. We each are individuals and may have some aromas that we either love or simply cannot stand to smell for whatever reason and is not always known. Be mindful of the essential oils you choose to use and make sure that both you and your partner find the chosen scents pleasing.

The Senses

Smell plays such an important role in our everyday living and if we enjoy what we are smelling it will assist in improving our health and wellbeing as well as stimulate our senses. Smell can evoke pleasure, on all levels emotionally, psychologically and physiologically. When choosing your essential oils for love play take the time to smell them, take note of how you feel, what you feel, are you smiling, do they do it for you?

Taste how sweet and satisfying it is when we eat our favourite food, this alone can be a sensual experience. Some of my favourite sensual fruits are figs, pomegranates, juicy mangoes, strawberries and lychees. Chocolate of course is always associated to love. Spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and chilli are very exotic. Seafood especially caviar, crayfish and oysters can be incorporated by having a sensual dining experience. The colour, texture, aroma, flavour and look can all give a hint of sensuality. Even the way you eat. The simple act of eating with your fingers can be very sensual. Experience tasting morsels of food shared with your partner by feeding one another.

The power of touch, slow gentle caressing, massaging, using feather light fingers or feathers themselves. On hot balmy days and nights gently massaging with an ice cube can be a very sensual experience. There is something to be said in having lush cushions, silky sheets and soft thick blankets to lie on.

Having beautiful things to look at such as a fire on a cold chilly eve, fragrant candles burning to create a soft ambient light. On hot balmy days and nights hanging curtains that are light and gently move in the breeze, essential oils diffusing and having a bunch of beautiful flowers on display. Setting the scene taking and into account the visual affect will have a positive impact.

Hearing music is a must, nothing like heavy metal where you feel like the walls are shaking, well that could work for some people. There is so much beautiful music available to choose from something soft and sensual or some can be very romantic and even music that evokes a more passionate tone, we all have our favourites.

Setting the Scene

Create a magical space for your sensory awakening. Above I have touched on the senses, use some of the examples to help create your magical space. Let us start with soft lighting using fragrant candles or t-lites in pretty glass jars placed all around the room. Incense and essential oils can be burning as the aromas gently disperse and enhance our feelings, music to help with relaxing and getting into the spirit of the moment. The temperature of the room should be warm and cosy. Fragrant fresh bed linen, soft comfy pillows and cushions, you may have a fire going in winter or a beautiful breeze gently blowing through an open window on hot balmy nights. Flowers or petals can be scattered, a bowl of exotic fruits and vegetables prepared and ready to indulge with. Warm, spicy mulled wine or champagne with Hibiscus flowers and syrup to sip on.

Conscious Breathing

Here is an exercise that you can do together. Sit opposite one another either on the floor, lying down facing each other or sitting on a chair if that is more comfortable, keeping your back straight. Place one hand on your partner's heart chakra. Breathing in and out at the same time, slowly and rhythmically count to 10 for each breath, 5 on the in breath and 5 on the out breath, do this for ten minutes or more. This will connect you on all levels spiritually, emotionally and physically. As you breathe together you will feel the flow and connect as one. From here you may enjoy gently caressing each other, gently playing and keeping the connection with your breathing.

Breakfast in Bed

Imagine waking up and your bed has been sprinkled with fragrant rose petals or freshly picked jasmine flowers! What a beautiful fragrant and pleasurable experience. A glass of champagne with guava juice and breakfast in bed, eating sensual fruits and chocolate croissants.

Bathing

Water Play can be cheeky, sensual and exotic, a prelude to a sensual massage. Share some juicy mangos, grapes and strawberries as you sip on champagne. Gently wash each other. Explore each other and take your time.

Sensual Massage

Start by applying your essential oil blend (not too much) all over your partner's body as you apply your fragrant and sensual massage blend take your time to feel the softness and smooth texture of your lovers skin, do this with some pressure, however not to firm. Ask if the pressure is to light or to firm, we all have our own preferences. Explore and enjoy your partner's body. Breathing is important, breathe and caress with intention and rhythm. Move with the music as you caress allowing your imagination to flow. To finish massaging, use a large soft feather, your finger tips, a soft fragrant flower, or a soft fluffy mitten, gently, lightly moving from top to toe.

The Erotic Banquet

Sensual Fruit ~ Pomegranates, juicy mangoes and peaches, grapes, lychees, figs drizzled with rosewater honey.
