Let’s talk about sex drive. The passenger seat is not an option when it comes to a topic as intimate as this one, and we’re talking about ways to take charge. Whether your sex drive needs revving up or just evening out, holistic health coach, Nicole Granato, has a few tips that’ll empower you to boost libido naturally…
Nourishing your body is a vital part of your health and wellbeing – it keeps us grounded, motivated and full of energy. Have you ever stopped to think about what it would look like if we focused a little more on boosting our sex organs and boosting our libido? As sexual beings, it is up to us to keep our sex drive boosted. It sustains a healthy relationship with our partners and ourselves. It sounds a bit overwhelming, but I can assure you it’s not! Here are some simple ways to begin boosting your sex drive naturally. Many factors can can attribute to a low sex drive like stress, alcohol and hormones.
I highly recommend putting two drops of either of these essential oils on each side of your lower pelvis and inner wrists as they help stimulate your sex organs:
Ylang ylang is used as an aphrodisiac in the aromatherapy world. With a gentle floral scent you can use this essence as a perfume for all-around benefits.
Neroli will enhance sex drive for both men and women, and reduce blood pressure in women! I highly recommend putting it behind your ears and on your lower pelvis.
Lavender isn’t directly connected to sex drive, but the soothing scent can help you relax and enjoy the moment a little more intimately.
Nothing helps blood flow and increases sex drive like a light uterus massage. In circular motions with light pressure, spend five minutes massaging your uterus and ovaries! You will help break stagnation and stimulate the organs for better blood flow and a healthy sex drive!
Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and the pituitary glands. These two glands regulate the other glands in the body and when in equilibrium, they help bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas and ovarian glands. Instead of providing hormones to the body, maca works as an adaptogen, meaning it responds to different people’s needs individually. If your body is producing too much of a particular hormone, maca will regulate the production downward. However, if you’re producing too little, it will regulate the production upward.
Yoga + Pilates
High-intensity workouts can greatly stress the body, which can effect libido. We should be thinking about exercises that will lower stress, nourish and support our sexual organs and create serenity in the body. I am a huge fan of pilates and yoga for this! Three time a week and you will feel your sex drive go up!
