Here are three DIY natural recipes to spice up the bedroom! You'll learn how to make a sheets and linens spray, a cologne for men, and a feminine oil/lubricant. All of these use essential oils which can be very effective aphrodisiacs and really set a romantic atmosphere.
Let's Learn About the Essential Oils in the Recipes
Northern Lights Black Spruce
This is one of my favorite essential oils! It is a special oil that is distilled at Young Living’s Northern Lights tree farm in British Columbia, Canada. The trees are bathed in the energy of the Aurora Borealis, which is believed by many cultures to contain spiritual renewal and clarity. It is known for its ability to improve the appearance of dry skin and create a calming, relaxing atmosphere. Add it to skin care products or apply it topically to support and maintain the appearance of healthy-looking skin.
This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, camphene, and beta-pinene. Look these up on pubmed.org to see all of their health benefits and to know how this oil can also help you! Here’s a fun fact – the Native Americans used Spruce for medicinal reasons and for, spiritual protection and capturing the universal energy here on earth. Spruce Essential Oil was traditionally used to soothe muscle discomfort after exercise or in combination with massage.
This oil blend was designed to help us leave all the stresses of life behind!. You can also use it to help you fall asleep. The oils in this blend are very unique and join to form a blend that is attractive to both men and women. Ocotea and Copaiba (CO-PIE-EE-BA) are exclusive oils from the Amazon that are combined with Vanilla, Lime, Cedarwood, and Lavender to produce a tropical yet citrusy aroma that many of us love!
Vanilla contains eugenol, which may combat occasional nervous tension, while cedrol found in Cedarwood essential oil helps to promote relaxation. Together these oils bring luxury and relaxation. This blend also comes in Young Living's essential oil starter kit, which I highly recommend as an easy way to get started with essential oils.
Peppermint is a peppy, bright oil that helps improve energy and digestion. It also releases tension in your body and helps you mentally with mood, focus, and concentration. It’s a wonderful oil to use to relax your muscles in a massage. It was chosen for the Between the Sheets spray because it is an aphrodisiac and will pep up your mood!

Cedarwood has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma creating a relaxing, calming, and comforting atmosphere when diffused to help support a relaxing nighttime routine. The cleansing and moisturizing properties associated with Cedarwood also make it a great addition to your favorite skincare products. I have used it in many of my skincare recipes here on the blog, like my Mermaid Hair and Scalp Serum. When applied topically, it can help maintain the appearance of healthy, youthful skin. It has a nice, manly scent!
Orange has a sweet, bright aroma reminiscent of a blossoming orchard of orange trees. Start your day with an uplifting burst of liquid sunshine by diffusing Orange as you get ready in the morning. With just a few drops, you can fill any space with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity. Orange is delightful on its own, or you can combine it with complementary oils such as Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Neroli, and Patchouli.
