What are Aphrodisiacs?

Does this name ring a bell? of course, it should. If you're familiar with the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, then you should have an idea of what aphrodisiac means.

Aphrodisiac scents are aromas that appeal to sensuality, thereby arousing libido, performance, or satisfaction. 

 Aphrodisiacs that were Used in the Past

It was discovered that Queen Cleopatra of Egypt used natural scents like cardamom, basil, and cinnamon to mesmerize prominent men like Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony.

The Greeks and Romans followed suit. They made perfumes out of aromatic spices for their erotic qualities. They would wear scented oils and floral scents like jasmine, rose, and lavender, adding substances from animals like ambergris (derived from whales) deer musk, and civet.

Love comes in different shapes sizes, and colors, and by this, we're referring to flowers. Studies have shown that particular scents arouse certain emotions inducing romance and are retained in the memory.

Here is the list of relishing aphrodisiac-scented flowers that you must gift to the love of your life:

1. Roses

Roses aren't a one-trick pony. They can serve several purposes; not only are they used in beauty products like moisturizers, creams, and perfumes, they could serve as a great accompaniment for gifts. Roses possess unique qualities like cis-rose oxide and beta-damascenone responsible for the fragrance they exude. These chemicals are concentrated to the extent that minor secretions into the air can be perceived quickly.

Asides from this, there are cultural sentiments attached to this flower. The Greeks believe in the myth that attributes Aphrodite, the goddess of love to be the creator of roses. According to the legend, her lover's blood (Adonis) and her tears moistened the ground from which red roses blossomed. Since then, roses have been viewed as a symbol of love. Also, Mary the mother of Jesus Christ is said to have loved roses, which is why she is represented with them. To early Christianity—and even currently—it symbolized unconditional love.

Here's another interesting part, it is said that Roman goddesses filled their bathtubs with Roses while others dispersed rose petals in their bedroom. While this could be pricey, it is a romantic gesture that would make her feel like a goddess. The symbolic meaning attached to roses is deeply rooted in color, particularly the red ones. Red symbolizes passion, which when used in the context of love, signifies a burning desire to be someone's loved one.

Research conducted on the effectiveness of Lavender on the functionality of the human body discovered that lavender either in capsule form or aromatherapy lowered stress, insomnia, menstrual, cramps, depression and anxiety levels, and augmented sexual desire. Purchasing this flower for her would do her a whole lot of benefits as stated above. From this, It can be inferred that they come in handy just like roses.

Studies discovered that Lavender possesses phytochemicals, Linalool, and linalyl, used in essential massage oils that induce a sedating effect and relaxes muscles. Another striking quality of the Lavender flower is its color which depicts royalty at its peaky. Your date will get the memo once she sees it, so make your queen bask in the royal scent of Lavender.

Lavender is said to be the most aphrodisiac scented flower; it has been named the 'herb of love' over time. By increasing blood flow and reducing stress, it contributes to sexual arousal. Women who wear perfumes containing lavender tend to attract men.

To be even more romantic and build a castle in your date's heart, you can offer to plant lavenders in a jar or her garden. Telling her all the benefits would make her feel cherished and secure. The video below might be helpful if you have no idea how to make it work. Now get busy!

Most people are unaware of the unique quality that this flower possesses. It is widely used for decorations, but it can do so much more such as sexual stimulation. The presence of Vitamin E in sunflowers is what makes them aphrodisiac, just by keeping them in close sight. Also, to feel a stronger impact from the sunflower, you can boil tea from the flower’s petals and drink it.

The luminous yellow color is impossible to ignore—that in itself is the hook. Yellow is a color associated with positivity and warmth, which are exactly the kind of vibes you are looking for with your date.

Now, if you are thinking of placing a sunflower in your date's hair so that her sense organs can perceive the seeds, even more, we must admit you've got game. If being cheesy is your forte, you can walk into the room with Post Malone's Sunflower playing in the background.

Now that you know how instrumental flowers are to one's love life, you should not hesitate a second to add them to your date's gift item. Albeit, it's advisable to ask your date's family or friends for her flower preferences to avoid awkwardness. While you do that, we wish you a great time with your loved one.
