I use the potent power of rituals for almost everything, including sex. It's how I synchronize with myself, my community, and all life. As women, we have a tendency to be thinking about a million things at once, making it a challenge to truly relax when we are getting frisky and making love. We need to actively shift our mental and emotional gears to tune in to the subtleties of sensuality. I use rituals as a tool to tap into my sexuality and experience more conscious, loving, and mind-blowing sex on a regular basis.
Use these beauty rituals to tune in to your sexual energies, strengthen and stimulate your sex organs, and transform your level of intimacy!
Sat Kriya with Jade Egg
The use of an oval-shaped stone or jade egg to strengthen the muscles of the vagina is a practice that evolved in ancient China. Women who used the technique would maintain their health, vitality, and sexuality as they matured into old age. Today, jade eggs are used by women to embody their most intimate anatomy, raise their sexual energy, and heal with loving awareness.
Since crystals vibrate energy, using them inside your yoni is a potent way to provide balance, eliminate blockages, and revitalize your entire being. Start by selecting a jade egg that resonates with you. Rose quartz is a crystal of unconditional love and can be used to soften, heal, and experience more gentleness. Green jade is calming, harmonic, and peaceful in nature and is widely known as the ultimate fertility stone.
Once you have your jade egg of choice, combine it with 11 minutes of Sat Kriya, and you will gradually restore sexual energy and strengthen your pelvic muscles for ultimate bedroom bliss.
Moon Juice: Sex Dust
I love using Moon Juice's signature Sex Dust edible formula to ignite and excite my goddess spirit. It's a warming elixir that sends waves of sensitivity and power to all the right places, thanks to the powerful adaptogens in the ingredients. An adaptogen is a type of plant extract used to restore normal physiological functioning in the body.
Here are some of the powerful adaptogens in Sex Dust that promote sexual health:
- Ho Shou Wu
Ho Shou Wu is an herb tonic used to enhance youthfulness, reproductive function, and sex drive. Shilajit is often prescribed to remedy reproductive disorders and increase sex drive and endurance power. Schisandra is good for both men's and women's sex organs. Cistanche naturally boosts the libido and is recognized in Asia as a top herbal aphrodisiac. Commonly known as "horny goat weed," Epimedium's leaves contain a variety of nutrients that restore sexual fire and boost erectile function. Add these herbs to your tea or milk after dinner and prepare yourself for an incredible treat that's better than any dessert!
Sultry Oil Massage
Massages are an amazing way to tune into our bodily sensitivity. Why not add essential oils to the mix? An oil massage before making love will enhance sensuality, intimacy, and harmony between you and your partner—on top of that, particular oils can act as a powerful aphrodisiac. Geranium, sandalwood, and patchouli hold aphrodisiac properties that enhance the libido and are key ingredients in my Grace Alchemy body oil, which doubles as a super-sexy massage oil. These oils will also induce calmness, concentration, and relaxation to quiet the mind and get you in a state of presence before making love. Take a hot bath, then get a rubdown with this exotic serum to lure you into wonderland.
Whether you're in a stale routine or want to experience more awareness in your sex life, experiment with these beauty rituals to tune into your receptivity and sensitivity during sex. The difference is huge, and your partner will be oh-so-grateful, and if you're solo, you'll learn how to truly get in touch with yourself, and I believe there is nothing better than that!
