Whether you’re having a date night or a girl’s night in we have you covered this Valentine’s Day! Create the ambiance you envision with our vast selection of essential oils. Read on to find your perfect essential oil for the night.
For a Night Out…
Here are some of our favorite essential oils that will put a little extra pep in your step:
Commonly used for mental strain and fatigue, rosemary is a fantastic essential oil to diffuse if you need a pick me up. This distinct earthy oil has notes of evergreen, mint, and pine to stimulate your senses and help you feel more alert and attentive.
If you want something less potent but still earthy, cedarwood is a great alternative to rosemary. With woodsy notes, cedarwood has a warm, smoky, sweet scent that will help provide some mental clarity. The cedrol in this oil may help reduce stress and nerves, so if you’re feeling the jitters for your date, diffuse a few drops of cedarwood!
Taking a step away from earthy notes, lemon is another amazing choice to help relieve stress and brighten your mood! The citrus notes of this essential oil will help lift your spirits and keep you energized for whatever Valentine’s Day plans you have for the night. You can diffuse or apply lemon essential oil topically on your skin with a carrier oil to stay refreshed all night long.
We couldn’t make a list of our favorite energizing essential oils without peppermint! Known for its vitalizing properties, peppermint oil is a classic go-to for enhancing mental focus and reducing tension. The fresh scent is sure to help invigorate your senses, mood, and energy levels.
For a Night In…
If you plan on having a quiet evening on Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of options for you to have a night of tranquility and relaxation. Below are just a few essential oils that will soothe your mood and help you feel extra cozy.
Another great choice for a calming oil is bergamot. Its scent is fresh, sweet, and citrusy with a slightly spicy undernote, perfect for if you want an alternative to lavender. It’s a popular top note in perfumes, so you may recognize this scent. You can mix bergamot with a carrier oil to apply topically or diffuse it in any room for a fresh fragrance.
For an earthier scent, patchouli is another option for a mood-balancing oil. Patchouli has a strong, dark, spicy fragrance, so a little goes a long way. Diffusing patchouli oil can help promote more restful sleep and relieve stress, so it is ideal to diffuse while you’re relaxing at home.
