Using essential oils for erectile dysfunction treatment is a natural and effective method of treating this common condition without the use of drugs.
The most common medical solution for men suffering from erectile dysfunction (often abbreviated to ED) is now Viagra and there are also other drugs available to treat this condition.
One problem is that all of these drugs have potential side effects, some of them serious. Also, men on some heart medications are not able to take them.
And a further complicating factor is that some men worry that they’ll become dependent on the drugs to get an erection and so they’re reluctant to take them anyway.
For this reason, some men are looking for other, more natural, alternatives as a cure for their erection problems.
One such little-known alternative is to use essential oils to treat the condition. There are a couple of reasons why essential oils can be beneficial for those suffering erectile dysfunction…
Benefits of essential oils for erectile dysfunction
Firstly, they are particularly effective for those who suffer because of psychological reasons such as anxiety, depression or stress. There are many essential oils with properties that are ideal for treating these symptoms.
Secondly, essential oils can also help those whose condition is a result of physical illness. Common causes of erectile dysfunction include high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, and thyroid problems. Again, many essential oils have characteristics that are excellent for these issues.
The best essential oils for erectile dysfunction
There are quite a number of essential oils that are good for treating ED, some of which are good because of their calming and soothing properties, some because of their mood improving characteristics and others because of their healing properties or because they act as natural aphrodisiacs. Here are some of the best essential oils for erectile dysfunction:
Basil oil is known for its calming properties and so is good for those whose erectile dysfunction is due to nerves and/or stress. It also increases sexual desire.
Cardamom oil is a natural aphrodisiac that is very sensual and increases sexual stimulation. It’s also very good for stimulating blood circulation.
Cedarwood oil is very calming and soothing and so it’s great for reducing stress and anxiety about sexual performance.
Clary Sage oil is probably the single best essential oil for erectile dysfunction. It reduces inhibitions and is mildly intoxicating as it induces feelings of euphoria and excitement. It also helps to balance and regulate hormones.
Rose oil contains dopamine which calms nerves and reduces anxiety. Rose oil is very aromatic and gives a boost to the libido while increasing sexual thoughts, acting as a natural aphrodisiac.
Sandalwood oil is excellent for treating depression and anxiety and relieving stress. It’s also a natural aphrodisiac which enhances feelings of sensuality. In addition, it’s a tonic for the reproductive organs.
This erotic oil naturally increases libido and has a big impact on improving your mood. It improves feelings of sexual attraction and is a natural aphrodisiac.
How to use
You can apply essential oils in a variety of ways when using them to treat ED. As always with essential oils, when applying them to the skin you should dilute them with carrier oils and you should always patch test first.
- You can apply the oils topically by using them as massage oils (with a carrier oil).
- The oils can be diffused in the air using an essential oil diffuser.
- You can add a few drops of essential oil to a warm bath.
- A wet compress can be used to apply the oils.
- The oils can also be applied to the feet; again make sure they are diluted with a carrier oil first.
Erectile dysfunction is an increasingly common and often worrying and inhibiting problem. Modern drugs can work wonders but they have side effects and not all men can take them. Some people are also nervous of coming to rely on the drugs for their sexual performance.
A great natural alternative is to use essential oils for erectile dysfunction treatment. Experiment with the different oils, and try different blends, to see what works best for you.
