Feeling a Little Down Asks Abby:
My husband could use some help with sexual performance. We would really like to turn to oils to help us, but we are uncertain which oils to try.
I understand you wanting to turn to natural remedies and believe it or not, Essential Oils can support him; yes, many folks claim, including this particular area!
There is a wealth of information out there on this subject.
Lack of (male sexual performance) in men may be caused by physical limitations due to an accident or injury or by psychological factors such as inhibitions, trauma, stress from every day life activities.
The lack of is often linked to the prostrate needing support.
If related to psychological trauma or unresolved emotional issues, it may be necessary to deal with these issues before any meaningful progress can be made.
There are 2 oils I would recommend trying, right off the bat, and 1 supplement to support male sexual performance.
The oils would be:
This blend helps to decongest the prostate and promote greater male hormone balance.
It is a blend made up of 7 different oils: Sesame seed oil (carrier oil), Sage, Fennel, Lavender, Myrtle, Yarrow, and Peppermint.
This oil can be diffused, inhaled, or even added to bath water (we recommend adding 2-4 drops to 1/2 cup epsom salt).
You can also apply to the ankle Vita Flex points, lower pelvis, or areas of concern.
This oil can also be used with a carrier oil (such as grapeseed oil or coconut oil) in a body massage.
Idaho Blue Spruce
Northwestern Native Americans considered the Idaho blue spruce to be a sacred tree and used it for smudging/purification rites. Spruce leaves, inner bark, gum, and twigs have been used historically by Native Americans for a variety of functions.
This oil is known to induce relaxation and take away stressful feelings.
Just smelling this oil can allow you to release emotional blocks, bringing about a feeling of balance.
You can apply Idaho Blue Spruce to the Vita Flex points, lower pelvis, or areas of concern. No dilution is necessary.
Diffusing this oils for one hour, three times a day can also be beneficial.
You can also add 2 drops to a capsule and take daily as a dietary supplement.
The supplement I would recommend is Prostate Health and Young Living actually carries this gem.
This is a fast-acting vegetable-based herbal product formulated with high-quality saw palmetto and pumpkin seed oil to provide support for prostate function and the male glandular system.
This is where I would start.
Oils can be a lot of trial and error. Each person is unique and what works for one may not work for another.
Of course, this can be an embarrassing topic, however, if you, or someone you love, needs support in this area, we at Drops of Faith would LOVE to have you try 1, or all of these suggestions out and let us know how it worked for you.
Thanks for reading!
