The Romantic Nights Gift Basket for Couples is a sensual way to incorporate the healthy gift of aromatherapy into your life as a couple.
“Scent is an important way to spice up your love life,” says Dr Judy Kuriansky, author ofThe Complete Idiot’s Guide to Tantric Sex. “Aromatherapy applies this principle by using scented oils to stimulate the brain in ways that sharpen the senses and trigger emotional states, from relaxation to arousal.” Aromatherapy mixtures include relaxation (lavender, orange, chamomile), stimulation (rosemary, basil, cardamom, black pepper), and sensuality (ylang-ylang, rose, jasmine sandalwood, patchouli). A creative idea for Valentine’s Day is to apply aromatherapy oil to your sheets or clothing, or have an aromatherapy bath together.
Meditation for couples on Valentine’s Day
Here’s another romantic, creative idea for Valentine’s Day: The Lovers’ Spooning Meditation. Lie in a spoon position, with your back nestled into your partner’s chest. You partner wraps his arms around your chest and rests his hands on your heart. Put your hands over his, and focus on breathing in and out at the same time. Lie still, and be silent. Focus on your breathing as much as possible, and when images, thoughts, fears, worries, or memories intrude, just let them go and redirect your thoughts back to your synchronized breathing. You might even decide on a phrase to meditate on, such as “Our love is strong and courageous” or “Together, we can do anything.” This can open your heart and mind.
