How to boost your libido: 10 tips for women

There are many reasons why your libido may be low. These include stress, fatigue, depression, certain medications and hormonal changes.

But don't worry! A drop in sexual desire should not be considered abnormal or permanent. There are solutions to restore your sex drive. Here are 10 simple and effective methods we suggest you try.

1. Adopt a healthier lifestyle

One of the best ways to boost your sex drive is to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet, exercising (at least 30 minutes a day!) and getting enough sleep are all necessary to maintain your energy and vitality, both of which are essential for a good libido.Plus, a healthier lifestyle will also help you to reduce stress, which can be a major cause of low libido.

2. Try some relaxation techniques


Another way to combat a low sex drive is to learn some relaxation techniques. After all, stress is one of the main factors that can lead to a drop in desire. Among the most effective relaxation techniques are meditation, yoga and deep breathing exercises.

3. Communicate with your partner

To combat a low sex drive, it is important to communicate with your partner. Talking about your sexual desires and needs will allow you to find solutions together. Sharing and exchanging ideas will strengthen your partnership and emotional bond and, of course, improve your libido.

4. Try some new sexual positions

If your low libido is due to the mundane nature of your regular sexual routine, try some new positions! Boredom can also be a factor in low libido. Trying new sexual positions will help you break the routine and rekindle your desire. Some of the most effective sex positions to boost your libido include:

  • The lotus position: the man lies on the floor in a lotus position and the woman sits on him, allowing him to control the rhythm;
  • Doggy style: a position that allows the woman to stimulate her other erogenous zones, especially the clitoris. You can also wear a glittering jewel butt plug to spice up your session;
  • 69: this position allows both partners to explore each other's bodies without penetration.

5. Experiment with essential oils

Essential oils

Another way to combat low libido in women is to explore the world of essential oils. In fact, certain essential oils can have a positive effect on the libido. Among the most effective essential oils are ginger (which invigorates the body) and ylang-ylang (which awakens the senses and relaxes the body).

Apply a few drops of oil mixed with a neutral oil (sweet almond oil, calendula, etc.) to strategic areas of your body (lower abdomen, chest, neck) to create a pleasurable atmosphere. You can also add a few drops to a sensual bath.

Apply a drop to your forearm and wait a few minutes to see if there is any reaction (redness, itching) to make sure you are not allergic before applying the oil elsewhere.

6. Stimulate your acupuncture points

Stimulating your acupuncture points is a good way to combat low sexual desire. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that can have a positive effect on your libido. Acupuncture points that can increase the libido include the area under the ankles and the point just below the navel. Gently massaging these two points just before sex can give you a boost.

7. Try a sensual massage for two

To liven up your foreplay, try a sensual massage for two! This type of massage can help relax the muscles and stimulate the senses. There are several types of massage that are effective in boosting libido, such as tantric massages and hot oil massages.

8. Try some aphrodisiacs

Aphrodisiac foods such as dark chocolate (which increases dopamine secretion), oysters (containing histamine liberators, which promote female pleasure) or figs (a fruit synonymous with sensuality) can help combat low libido. These aphrodisiac foods are rich in substances that stimulate desire.

Why not start by trying the trendy aphrodisiac drink, Sex Coffee? This spicy coffee contains maca (a Peruvian libido booster), cinnamon (to energise the body before sex) and nut milk (to boost the metabolism).

Here is a recipe for sex coffee that will awaken all your senses before making love:

  • 1 cup of black coffee
  • 1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of maca powder

Add all these ingredients to your coffee and whisk until you have a frothy emulsion.

9. Play with sex toys

To increase your libido, you can also use sex toys. Sex toys can help stimulate desire and allow you to discover new pleasures. Among the sex toys most likely to help you regain a healthy libido are vibrators, dildos and butt plugs.

10. Consult a doctor if your low sex drive persists

It is important to see a doctor if you’ve tried everything and still have a low libido. A chronic lack of desire can be a sign of a more serious health problem or a sign of a more serious psychological disorder. A doctor will be able to determine if there is a medical cause for your low libido and suggest appropriate treatment.
