Did you know humans have a multitude of senses? However, touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell are the five traditionally recognized senses.
It’s also important to recognize that women tend to be more sensitive than men… Literally.
Typically, women are more sensitive to touch, have more sensitive taste buds, have better low-light vision and can hear sounds men can’t. Women, particularly of reproductive age, are also far better at identifying odors than men.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can say “I Love You!” using all five of your senses.
Touch your special someone in loving ways. Keep in mind, women prefer to be hugged tenderly … not bear hugged. Gently cuddling your wife or holding her hand can be a powerful message of love.
A few more ideas for a loving touch…
- Massage each other with your favorite Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oil mixed with carrier oil such as organic, unrefined coconut oil. Another option is to use one of Young Living’s premixed massage oils like Sensation Massage Oil.
- Give your spouse a foot massage with their favorite Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oil after a long day, just because you love and care about them. You might choose to use Peppermint essential oil for a a cool, tingling sensation on the skin.
- Applying essential oils that support the immune system to the feet and spine can show you how much you care. There are many benefits to the body and wellness when expressing love through touch.
- One more suggestion would be to anoint each other with Frankincense essential oil while praying for each other. Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness.
The tastes your spouse experiences when connecting with you also sends a message. If you want your spouse to desire to kiss you, make your mouth something he or she wants to taste! Think about how bitter coffee, stale beer, overpowering garlic and smoker’s ashtray breath are all quick ways to turn ‘I love you’ into ‘yuck.’
Try sipping water with a drop or two of Peppermint Vitality essential oil. Peppermint has a bright, cool flavor, with benefits that include gastrointestinal comfort and normal digestion support, too.
If you don’t mind the strong peppermint taste, try a drop directly on your tongue then swish your tongue around your mouth to freshen up. Even something mild like Lemon Vitality essential oil can give your breath a bright, fresh aroma.
Taste is highly individualized. A few women actually like the smell of stale beer; most don’t. A few women like leftover garlic aroma; most don’t. When you are saying “I Love You” to your spouse, try to be aware of what your kisses taste like and pay attention to his or her preferences.
Say “I love you” with what your spouse sees. Men, you may enjoy lounging around in worn-out T shirts and sweats, but your wife may prefer something nicer.
And women, you may prefer yoga pants or roomy pajamas, but your husband may want to see your curves.
The way you keep yourself — your hair, face, fingernails, and clothes — is an important way you can actively communicate “I love you” to your spouse.
Stress can be a factor with your appearance and your self-esteem. Using Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oil to reduce stress can be helpful.
Diffusing calming essential oils can ease the stress over time. Peace & Calming essential oil creates a relaxing environment that’s especially great for homes with children.
Gathering Essential Oil Blend is one of my favorites to wear as a perfume. Gathering helps overcome the chaotic energy that bombards our everyday life and clouds our focus.
Financial stress is a common battle the every couple faces regularly. Motivation Essential Oil Blend helps enable a person to surmount fear and procrastination while stimulating feelings of action and accomplishment. It enhances the ability to move forward in a positive direction. Try using Motivation in your diffuser in the mornings as you get ready for work.
Sometimes it’s a challenge to think clearly and be productive at work. Clarity Essential Oil Blend promotes a clear mind and alertness. It contains stimulating oils including peppermint and rosemary, which have been used for many years to promote mental sharpness. Clarity can also be used to help restore mental alertness or wakefulness when you are experiencing fatigue or drowsiness. Keep a bottle of Clarity with you at work to inhale when you need a little extra energy.

What your spouse hears is also important. My brother, Jay, tells me most men don’t realize a man’s bodily noises communicate something to women that’s very different than what they mean to men. Simply put, they “really gross her out.”
Practicing restraint – for both men and women – communicates just how much you love them, too.
Tone of voice can be an issue for either sex. Your loved one most often hears sarcasm and anger with the wrong tone. And it can be viewed as more threatening to your relationship than you may understand. This is true even if you are venting your anger about someone else.
I like to reach for Tranquil™ or Stress Away™ Roll-On and apply to my temples or neck for a quick way to soothe and relax stressed nerves. It can quickly lift my mood and calm the conversation.
If you are tired from lack of a good night’s sleep, it can make you grumpy and as a result it may be difficult to get along with one another. Applying calming essential oils on bottoms of feet and on chest & neck before going to bed can promote relaxation of the body and mind. Or you may prefer to use them in a diffuser on your nightstand and a little rubbed on pillow and sheets.
There’s no excuse for bad smells when you use Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils. Be sure you talk to one another and discover which aromas are pleasing to your loved one. The scent of an oil that please you, may not be your spouse’s preference at all.
Proverbs 7:17 says
“I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon…” What have you perfumed your bed with to please your spouse?
No excuses now … you have no reason to hold back! Say “I love you” with all five senses and keep the romance alive!
