Ageing is beautiful and it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying all the pleasures of life. As a woman, reaching menopause is full of change, but there are some natural oils you can use to adapt to these changes to live your best life.

Here, we’re exploring the best natural oils for menopausal women to enhance intimacy and pleasure.


Extra virgin olive oil is not only nourishing and lubricating for the skin, but it also features anti-aging properties. For menopausal women, this is a huge benefit.

From the age of 40, the vaginal lining naturally begins to get thinner and thinner. As menopause continues, you’ll also notice vaginal dryness, low libido, and other hormonal changes.

So, olive oil not only helps rejuvenate your skin but also helps with vaginal dryness that can cause painful sex. A natural lubricant made with an olive oil base is ideal for menopausal women looking to enhance their physical intimacy.

Essential oils can also offer intimacy-boosting benefits for menopausal women. While olive oil helps with lubrication, essential oils can help with other hormonal side effects like low libido, hot flashes and mood swings.

Let’s start with a few of the best essential oils for women over 40.

Peppermint Oil

The natural cooling effects of peppermint oil is perfect for menopausal women. Hot flashes are no joke and can totally throw off the mood during intimate moments.

When infused into a massage oil or arousal oil, peppermint can help you feel cool and invigorated in all the best ways.

Geranium Oil

Geranium essential oil offers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory
and anti-aging benefits while also promoting relaxation and stress relief. Geranium is also a beautiful moisturiser for your skin and combined with olive oil, it’s the perfect natural lubricant for women experiencing menopause.

Some research even suggests that geranium oil can produce anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects. Since hormonal changes during menopause can affect your mental health, this essential oil can be a game-changer.

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is well-known for its relaxation benefits but it can also aid in perineal discomfort in your pelvis.

Raging hormones make menopausal mood swings a daily battle and managing your emotions during menopause is something lavender oil can really help with.

Lavender relaxes your mind and your muscles to help you loosen up, lean into your sensuality, and as a bonus, you’ll sleep better too!

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang is an ancient ingredient, known for its libidoboosting properties. Not only will this essential oil allow you to relax and unwind, but you’ll also feel more turned on and ready for intimacy.

Since a decreased sex drive is a huge concern for menopausal women (understandably so), be sure your intimacy products include Ylang Ylang on their ingredient list.
