Valentine's Day is that special time of year where you get to show the people you love just how much you care. It gives us an extra reason to celebrate the deep and intimate bond we share with our romantic partners.

Here are five reasons why essential oil blends are perfect for Valentine's Day:

It also happens that this is the area where brain chemicals and neurotransmitters (the things that regulate your mood, emotions and libido!) are produced.
