Happy Valentines Day!
All humans have a basic need to be loved and to feel love; intimate relationships that include a sexual component help to fulfill this need. If a couple desires to improve their emotional intimacy, they can attend seminars, read books, or go to marriage counseling to get some ideas. Because of past experiences and current health concerns, physical intimacy can have inherent challenges including low sex drive, exhaustion/fatigue, aches and pains, chronic illness, hemorrhoids, yeast infections, endometriosis, vaginal dryness, impotence, lack of nitric oxide, oxytocin production, and more.

One of the reasons why they are so effective is that their natural chemical composition works quickly on the circulatory, endocrine, and reproductive systems when applied to the skin (usually diluted).
