It’s the time of year when we all stop and make an extra effort to be romantic.
Whether you enjoy Valentine’s Day or you think it’s just a conspiracy among florists, chocolatiers, jewelers and greeting card companies…the truth is…we should be celebrating love all year long.
At Natural Healthy Concepts, we decided to give some lucky person out there a little help keeping those passion fires burning – whether it’s February 14th or not! So we put together this Love is in the Air Giveaway full of romantic aromatherapy products and more.
And the best part is…you get to complete the prize package by picking a product you really want!

Call it A-ROMANCE-therapy if You Will…
Sometimes we forget how much our sense of smell impacts they way we feel.
When it comes to feeling love and attraction, we usually think about how we look to our lover. Or perhaps we think of foods that are considered aphrodisiacs. But according to an article in Psychology Today, “human emotions are strongly moved by smells.”
Think about the sense of nostalgia you get when you smell certain things. Maybe it’s the smell of apples and cinnamon that remind your of your grandma. The scent of fresh pine could bring back holiday memories. Fresh cut grass might make you think of summer vacation as a kid, and even the smell of coffee brewing can perk you up in the morning before your first sip.
It can work that way when you want to stir up some romance too! While aromatherapy may not necessarily boost your sex drive, it certainly could set the right mood.
That’s why the prizes in our Love is in the Air Giveaway can help you literally put love in the air. Let’s take a look!
What You Can Win
1. Ultrasonic Wooden Oil Diffuser
This is the big prize in this giveaway – the NOW Foods Ultrasonic Wooden Oil Diffuser has been extremely popular in our store and online. We had trouble keeping them on the shelves over the holidays!
It’s easy to see why people love it. Most essential oil diffusers like this don’t have much aesthetic appeal. They basically look like little, plastic humidifiers.
But NOW’s diffuser is sleek and attractive. It’s shape is reminiscent of a flower petal starting to bloom and the faux wood finish makes it nice enough to set out on the kitchen counter or even in your living room. It’s quiet, easy to use, easy to clean and can produce cool steam for up to 8 hours. You just add tap water and essential oils.
Plus, this diffuser can make your home smell amazing! Take it from me…we have one in our house too.
2. Essential Oil Blends from NOW Foods
If you’re new to aromatherapy, here are two products that can help you get started.Â The prize package includes a pair of special essential oil blend from NOW Foods.
You’ll find the Cheer Up Buttercup blend, which contains essential oils of bergamot, orange, lime, grapefruit and lemon.
This combination could help lift your spirits and promote a positive mood.
Plus, you could also win the Naturally Loveable Romance blend, which is made with essential oils of lemon, orange, sandalwood blend, jasmine absolute blend and ylang ylang oil.
It’s a mix that could create romantic feelings while also promoting a sense of comfort and calmness.
3. Almond Oil and a Dropper Bottle
Once you get into aromatherapy, you’re going to want to experiment with creating your own unique essential oil blends. These two products are perfect for that.
The Sweet Almond Oil from NOW in this giveaway is often used for skin care.
However, it’s also the perfect carrier oil for DIY essential oil blends. The almond oil acts as a base and then you can add other scents that you’d like.
We’re also throwing in a glass dropper bottle from Wyndemere Oils. It’s a 4 oz bottle that lets you be precise about how much oil you add to your diffuser or for when you apply it to your skin.
4. Chocolate Maca Bar and a Lavender Candle
To top things off we’ve added a couple of extra goodies.
Diffusers are great for aromatherapy, but there’s something missing without the glowing flicker of a scented candle. The lavender candle in this prize package comes in an eye-catching Mason jar and is made from environmentally-friendly soy, which means it burns clean with no soot.
The Chocolate Maca bar from Vega might be the most fun item in this package. We’ve all heard that chocolate can be an aphrodisiac, but have you heard about the potential benefits of Maca?
Maca root may support enhanced libido, increased vitality and improved energy. Plus – it could also provide antioxidant support, help balance hormone levels and even relieve stress.Â Oh – and it’s chocolate!
When you add it all up – the Love is in the Air Giveaway amounts to a suggested retail value of more than $98. But you can put it over $100 when you complete the prize package by picking any Natural Skin Care Product you want to add.
While only one person will win the full prize package, two other people will win runner-up prizes and get the product they pick!

Source Naturals Skin Eternal Cream–oh what a nice skin cream with a great fragrance and feel: https://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/skin-eternal-cream-SN4.html
As for romance, connecting through conversation about things that mean a lot to one then the other, to both at the same time too–welcoming the other’s wish to be free to express her- or himself and to know one is being heard, appreciated–is a beautiful way to stir up warm, romantic feelings. And true smiles, the whole face doing the smiling, are beautiful elixirs of love.
What a wonderful giveaway! This is the perfect product to add: http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/all-natural-hand-body-lotion.html
I love the entire andalou naturals line… but to be honest, there are so many wonderful natural skin care products at natural healthy concepts, it’s hard to pick a favorite!
Oh, how I’d love to win the Acure Day Cream! So difficult to pick just one item from a seemingly endless list of awesome choices!! I have to say that that diffuser is the most beautiful I have seen.

Dr Bronners soap is the best there is! It is the only soap my hubby and I will use. I like to give my hubby foot rubs….I usually can get anything I want after that! 🙂
This works wonders!
Cheer Up Buttercup!
What a great name for a great product!
This sounds like the product I need to help clear the toxins from mold that are currently causing some acne.
Me and my husband of almost 25yrs (in May), have kept the romance alive since we consider each other girlfriend and boyfriend. Sometimes he will joke at work about his “girlfriend” and most people know he is married; sometimes when I call him at work, when they ask who I am, I say “his girlfriend”. We are recent ’empty nesters’ and loving every minute!!!
I also think that communication is the key. Have that affair with your spouse!!! It’s pretty fun!
Being the only guy here so far that has posted a comment, the way to a guy’s heart is by being supportive. That’s the best advice I can give.
I would choose this cream because it is completely different from any face cream I have ever seen. It’s very intriguing.
This cream is very unusual and intriguing. I think it would make my complexion beautiful.

I have been using Avalon Organics lavender bath and shower gel for years. It is inexpensive, smooth to the touch and skin, and leaves me squeeky clean with a wonderful scent. What a treat to use at night to wind down from a hectic day at work and home. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone and thank you for hosting this giveaway. http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/bath-gel-12oz-AO.html
We will have been married 24 years next week. This is our way of keeping love alive. It’s quite simple actually. Say I Love you, honor and respect each other, say you’re sorry, ask for forgiveness, tell him thank you for the simple things. You would be amazed how much ‘love’ is reciprocated. That is why a simple lipstick completes your romance assortment, it’s just icing on the top.
http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/foundation-12-EM.html would love this!!! I’ve been transforming my entire beauty routine and life into natural products and the one thing I haven’t yet mastered is a face powder! I think my skin would thank me!
That was a tough one- what with so many choices and all but I’d love the 1000 Roses Cleansing Foam
from Andalou Naturals
I love the Argan Oil – a couple drops warmed between my hands and rubbed gently through my locks makes for sexy date-night worthy hair!

I would love to win the diffuser and oils. http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/18-1-hemp-castile-soap-16-eucalyptus.html. I love using essential oils in addition to Dr. Brown’s castile soap linked above.
To keep romance alive: Work at it. Regular alone time to connect always helps.
We always appreciate the little things, and do small things for each other to brighten the other persons day. Keeps the love alive!
Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp Shampoo
My fiance and I cultivate romance by never leaving issues on the table. We try to talk about everything before it turns into a big issue as per the old advice of ‘never go to bed angry’. We have great respect for one another and value the little things. It’s funny how just a night in of making dinner and watching tv together can be so romantic. The bottom line is we make time for each other even when it seems like there’s no time and we’re too busy. Showing the other person regularly how much you want and need them in your life is important.
I love this!
Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

Being best friends and being silly together is how my husband and I keep the romance alive.
No matter how busy things get, my husband and I greet each other with a hug and a kiss each morning, taking a moment to appreciate each other. Our ten year old thinks this is just how parents are (embarrassing).
I have always wanted to try castile soap. It has so many uses listed and a nice variety of scents.
It would also be nice to try the goodies in the give away package!! The diffuser would be a nice way to get a sweet atmosphere for a romantic evening. : )
I have found over the past 17 years of our marriage that it helps to strengthen our bond of love by saying ” I love you” often with a gentle rub or hug. Praying together has really enabled us to stay together, Talking things out and doing little things that makes the other feel cherished and appreciated helps keeps the love growing each day.
I wish I had this product right now since I have a cold sore now.

The scent Patchouli is the scent of all things beautiful. And it makes me happy 🙂
I’m always looking for hair care for my curls..
I forgot to say how we keep the romance alive. To me it’s simple. Kids go to bed early and we watch our favorite shows together. Spending time together doing simple things is so important! It’s a mini date every moment you have alone.
