Rekindle the romantic flame with your partner this Valentine’s Day, keeping 5 simple tips in mind
Valentine's Day only comes once a year, but what if we told you that you could make it last the entire year? We've laid out our top 5 tips to boost your libido, reconnect with your partner and make this Valentine's Day (and every other day) romantic, sizzling and saucy!
It's no secret that love makes the world go round, but if you're having problems with low sex drive (libido), erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or difficulty falling pregnant then it's difficult to share the love - many people develop relationship problems or become depressed. Sexual health is affected by hormonal functioning and is also influenced by diet, exercise, fitness levels, some prescription drugs as well as toxins from the environment. It can also be affected by mood and anxiety, as well as some medical conditions such as diabetes.
Here's how to make the most of this Valentine's Day and keep the romance alive in your relationship!
Spoil your partner this Valentines Day with a sensual rub down. Stimulate their senses by incorporating exotic aromatherapy oils (don't use essential oils on 'sensitive' areas) to get them relaxed and feeling pampered. Massaging your partner makes them feel important, showing them that you're going out of your way to make them feel special!
Massage encourages healthy circulation throughout the body, which is essential for fully functioning sexual organs. It also helps partners feel connected to one another through touch and intimacy.
Our top pick for you: Use this Love Potion as an aromatherapy massage oil, to rub onto temples, use as a burner oil, in the bath or as a steam inhalation
Don't let sexual health issues ruin your Valentine's Day, or any other day for that matter! Lack of sex drive, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and low self-esteem are all contributing factors to an unfulfilling sex life. While there are various drugs and prescription medications to combat sexual concerns, many of them have negative side effects like putting strain on the heart or affecting one's mood.
Luckily, natural medicines have a long history of safety and effectiveness in helping to support sexual health and fertility. We've formulated herbal medicines for male and female sexual and reproductive health, including herbal fertility tonics, remedies for menstrual problems, menopause, libido enhancers, prostate health and many others.

Dr Eve, a well-known local sexologist and guru, sheds light on confidence when it comes to your sexual desires and fulfillment saying, "If you want your partner to use a toy on you, use it first on your own to gain confidence. Confidence is a huge turn-on. If you get embarrassed about talking about why you want to be spanked, or use bondage it may not go down well - so be confident and own your fantasies."
Use Valentine's Day to push boundaries, spice things up and surprise your partner with a confident, sassy attitude! Re-ignite the flame you used to share when you first started dating with exciting, new things. Things like using an erotic toy, wearing sexy underwear or sending flirty text messages throughout the day can really rev up the passion between you and your partner - and nothing's sexier than doing it with confidence!
Our top picks for you: If you suffer from chronic anxiety, depression or low self-esteem, our natural mood tonic called MindSoothe can assist by uplifting your mood and feelings of well-being, and alleviating symptoms of stress and depression. In acute cases, PureCalm helps with nervous stress and tension.
It may not surprise you to know that a good diet can help boost your sex drive and ensure your body is functioning optimally! Low libido, erectile dysfunction and poor sexual performance can in fact be linked to an unbalanced or unhealthy diet. Encourage yourself and your partner to eat healthy organic food, take daily supplements and ensure your bodies get all the nutrients you need (not just for sexual benefits, but because you love them, too!).
Use this information as motivation to cook a delicious, HEALTHY meal for your partner this Valentine's Day, or whenever you want to make them feel special! Sharing a nutritious, yummy meal and reminiscing about the first time you met is a great way to rekindle the flame!
Our top pick for you: A powerful superfood, Black Maca Powder, is known to enhance male sexual energy, endurance and fertility, and help to balance hormone levels. Black Maca Powder can also help impotent men, because it stimulates the pituitary gland into secreting more testosterone!
Black Maca Love Potion recipe:
- 500ml fresh almond milk, soy milk or rice milk
- Dash of vanilla essence or seeds from a vanilla pod
- 1 Tablespoon Black Maca powder
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Coconut nectar or honey to taste
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil/butter

In men, regular exercise appears to act as a natural Viagra and is associated with a lower risk of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. In women, regular exercise encourages increased sexual desire, arousal, and satisfaction! The explanation for this is that exercise stimulates healthy blood flow (which results in better sexual function), boosts and balances your hormones, and makes you feel good! Additionally, when you're in shape and happy with your body, it's more likely you'll enjoy being naked around your partner, as opposed to those who aren't comfortable with their bodies.
Start Valentine's Day off by going for a run somewhere beautiful with your partner. As the saying goes, couples who exercise together, stay together!
Our top pick for you: Solgar L-Carnitine is a liquid supplement that boosts energy and increases physical endurance, that's perfect for sports people, athletes and to maximise your workout.
