The holidays are a time when romance often blossoms or deepens. Our emotions are in high gear due to the spirituality of the season and we look for deep meaning at this time of the year. So if you are in the mood for a holiday romp let nature be your guide. So many items from the earth and gardens are inherently sensual and will bring some natural sexy play when used joyfully.
Pomegranates are an ancient fruit with ties to the Middle East. They are a very beautiful fruit. The seeds are deep red with a shimmery hue. The seeds look beautiful strewn on a salad, or in a bowl to showcase their beautiful appearance. Hand feed a few to someone to enjoy the sweet yet tart taste.
I always buy a carton of clementines each holiday season. If you have never had one they are like tangerines but a bit smaller and much easier to peel. Clementines are sweet and juicy. They are fun to feed to someone. They also make cute gifts; just put a few in a basket with some candy canes and you have made a quick, easy gift.
Dark chocolate is a very enjoyable treat before bedtime. Share a piece with someone and enjoy it health benefits and the sensual taste. Melt some dark chocolate too and dip strawberries in the chocolate for a very sensual treat.
Boil some cinnamon sticks in water on the stove to fill the home with a wonderful holiday scent. To make the aroma even more delightful add some orange skins, cloves, or star spice. This scent is as yummy as apple pie, without all the calories.
The scent of freshly cut pine adds a joyful, clean holiday scent to a room. When a big basket of pine boughs adorns a room the scent is like being in the forest. It is easy to feel romantic when one’s mind wanders to the forest primeval.
Add some drops of vanilla to massage oil to create a richly scented aroma that will arouse and also bring back memories of home baked cookies. What an enticing combination that is! Heat the oil slightly to make for a most relaxing sensual massage. It is rumored that vanilla is a scent most men favor.
Raspberries and Blackberries
Raspberries and blackberries are very erotic fruits. They have a luscious taste and are wonderfully juicy. They are fun to feed to someone and you may enjoy smearing them about a bit too. Raspberries and blackberries always remind me of warm summer days and put me in a very relaxed mood.
Fresh Cut Mango
The sharp, tropical scent of mango is very erotic. Slice this fruit up and serve it to someone you want to tantalize. The aroma will make you feel you are in the tropics and that can be quite joyful on a cold winter evening.
Heat some milk and add some dark chocolate to make a wonderful cocoa to induce a mood of sleepiness and a longing to find a cozy spot to curl up with someone special.
Fresh Baked Bread
Ah, the aroma of fresh baked bread adds a cozy feel to an abode in a way that few other things can. So break out your mixing bowl and yeast and find your favorite bread recipe. The smell of yeast is so of the earth it is sensual. Then when the bread is baking the scent oozes comfort and joy. Warm bread and butter or jam is always a sensual treat to share with someone.
