What is a Topical Aphrodisiac?

Aphrodisiacs are usually thought of as a food, drink, or drug that stimulates sexual desire or causes excitement. Oysters and chocolate are usually the most popular foods thought of to spark romance but aphrodisiacs go beyond novelty items and cliches.

Simple Jane Topical Aphrodisiacs are carefully crafted personal lubricants and massage oils made with all natural ingredients such as:

Ylang Ylang

Ylang-ylang is the name of a tree that is native to Indonesia, but has since been found in many tropical locations. Besides being a mood enhancer and tension reliever, Ylang Ylang essential oil is commonly used to increase libido in both men and women.  The sexy, delicate fragrance is found in Barely There Topical Aphrodisiac.

Egyptians.  Widely used for relaxation and relieving insomnia, lavender oil has been also been used to treat candida and other fungal infections. Lavender oil also works well when blended with other essential oils such as Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Bergamot used in Barely There Topical Aphrodisiacs.

Aromatherapy is a large part of stimulating the senses, especially when used as an aphrodisiac.



Cannabis has been used as an aphrodisiac since 700 AD . Now, with the topic of legalized marijuana smoldering in the air, the surge of interest in the medicinal herb used to enhance sexual pleasure has been rediscovered.

The active ingredient in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), which releases dopamine in the brain but also stimulates a neurochemical called anandamide. This is a naturally occurring cannaboid receptor also known as the “bliss molecule”.
