The top three aphrodisiac oils are: Rose Oil, Neroli Oil, and Jasmine Essential Oil. Other great sensual massage oils are lavender, patchouli, sandalwood, and ylang ylang. The best carriers for a romantic massage oil are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, hazelnut oil, and grape-seed oil. My personal two favorites are the sweet almond and jojoba. The romantic massage oils can act directly as mood enhancers or aphrodisiacs, or as energy balancing elements, for a proper sensual energy buildup.

Use light and delicate carrier oils, that are absorbed easily into the skin. You don't want to make a mess, that will put off most of the people. Use only 3% essential oils in your carrier, otherwise you risk to irritate the skin or even burn it. Essential oils are very strong.
