Essential Oils and Love Language

by Karen Hughes on February 5, 2021

Essential Oils and Your Love Language go hand in glove! They support each other in many ways. Let’s take a look.

The 5 Love Languages Book by Gary Chapman has been around for many years. The concept is to understand your most heartfelt emotions. (What makes you tick.) It’s also to understand your partner’s most heartfelt emotions, so you can better understand how to support each other.

Since essential oils have both physical and emotional components, I thought it would be interesting to partner these essential oils with their Love Language to support your emotions!

What makes you feel special? We know that no one can make you happy, and it certainly isn’t their job to make you happy. BUT, it’s important to also understand how we communicate can indeed stir emotions, both positive and negative.

Understanding your partner’s love language can help you understand how best to communicate with them. Take a look at the following examples of how by using essential oils, you can support a love language that might not be your own!

What are the 5 Love Languages?

Words of Affirmation

This may be your love language if you use your words to affirm someone. Maybe it’s someone who thanks you or shows appreciation verbally for what you do?

Would you like to be more affirming? Using the essential oil Lavender and Spearmint can help you express yourself.

Quality Time

When you speak to someone, do you give them your undivided attention? Your language might be quality time.

Do you find it hard to give your undivided attention to your partner or someone? Use Lemon essential oil. It’s the oil of focus!

Acts of Service

Your love language might be acts of service if you are most fulfilled with you are in service to others. You may not say much, but your actions speak for themselves.

If Acts of Service aren’t your thing but you’d like to support that Love Language Use the Essential Oil of Motivation. If it IS your thing, perhaps you’ll find you stay motivated longer!

5 Love Languages

Receiving Gifts

Do you feel most special with someone gives you something? Perhaps you feel most loved when you receive a gift and I bet you give GREAT gifts!

Is gift giving is hard for you? Are you someone who finds it difficult to be creative when giving gifts? The Oil of Creativity can help you personalize your gift is a special way! Use Citrus Bliss Essential Oil for this love language.

Physical Touch

Those whose language is physical touch feel most supported and loved when they are close and have loving touch.

I think this can be challenging during times of stress and raising a family. We all need physical touch, and intimacy is sometimes hard.

These oils are known for their tendencies to promote intimacy and closeness.

Try any of these if Physical Touch oils can help you focus on each other and express yourselves in an authentic way.

How Essential Oils Can Help

Essential oils are aromatic compounds that can enable communication to flow more freely.

Finally, here are some diffuser blends to help you in your journey. If you have not taken the test to Discover Your Love Language you can do this for FREE. Choose one of the quizzes here.
