Add Some Sizzle to Your Life

It’s February and I can feel the love in the air. It’s nice to spend some time reminding one another how much you care for and appreciate one another. Now that you’ve got the cards and flowers out of the way are you ready to let sparks fly? Being intimate with your partner can be so rewarding for your love life and your overall health. Sex has been shown to be a natural pain and stress reliever. A good sex life can even be a great way to keep your heart healthy.

If you want to enhance those intimate moments, you may want to consider some love making compounds. For women, scream cream is one of those compounds and the name tells you what you want to hear during any good love making session. By rubbing a small amount of this cream on you can increase blood flow to your lady parts and enhance your overall experience. There are many variations to this formulation, some including sildenafil. Sildenafil is also known as the little blue pill or Viagra. It helps men with Erectile Dysfunction (ED), but it can also add to your pleasure. For men, if ED is a problem we can compound a troche, which is a small lozenge that dissolves under your tongue, for that too. ED medications are not for everyone. Patients that take nitrate medications for heart related chest pain should not use medications for ED. If you’d like to increase cuddle time with your partner you may want to try the “love” hormone also known as oxytocin. This can be made into a troche or nasal spray dosage form which aims to increase the bond between you and your partner.

You can also set the mood by wearing a new scent. Applying a special, date night only, essential oil to your neck will keep your partner guessing and coming in closer for another smell. Woodsy scented oils like Cypress are great as men’s cologne and can lure your lady in. You can spice it up even more by adding some essential oils to your foreplay. Diffusing an oil such as Ylang Ylang in the bedroom or applying it topically with a carrier oil can help increase the romance. If you want a clean personal lubricant to get things going, Naked by Good Clean Love is a great option. It’s an organic lubricant, free of parabens and petrochemicals, and is made to match your body’s natural chemistry. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health while trying to enjoy your love life.

Also, if you have lost your sex drive your hormones could be to blame. If your hormones are out of whack you could be experiencing more than just a decrease in your sex drive. Trouble sleeping, weight gain, or vaginal dryness are just a few other symptoms that could be due to unbalanced hormones. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be a great way to replenish what your body needs to get you feeling like your old frisky self again.

Everyone should enjoy their time between the sheets so take a moment to see what you can do to make it a great experience for you and your partner.
