What are Pheromones?

Pheromones are naturally-existing chemicals that escape from our skin and pores. Animals use pheromones as a way to communicate. Most notably, pheromones have been said to increase sex drive, sexual desire, and attractiveness between humans and their partners. However, there is little research that backs up this claim. According to many people, changing your daily habits can increase your pheromones, make you more attractive, and make you more confident! While humans do not need pheromones to catch a mate, it can’t hurt to try a few methods, right?

How to Increase Your Pheromones

Try Out Different Scents

While there aren’t many perfumes that can perfectly imitate your pheromones, you can purchase pheromone enhancers. These enhancers elevate your natural scent. You can find pheromone perfumes from Glossier, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Pure Instinct, and the list goes on. You can also try various aphrodisiac scents, such as vanilla, lavender, rose, jasmine, and ginseng. Others may find you more alluring. If anything else, you’ll get a confidence boost when you turn heads with an attractive scent.

Change Your Diet

If you are hesitant about switching up your perfume regime, consider adding aphrodisiac foods to your diet. Many of these foods improve your blood flow, increase libido, and heighten bodily sensations. Some foods and vitamins that you can try out are as follows: asparagus, oysters, pomegranates, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, walnuts, ginseng, and Ginkgo Biloba. By adding these foods to your diet, you may notice a heightened sex drive, energy boost, and a little more confidence in yourself. 

Bathe Differently

Lastly, the best way to increase your pheromones is by bathing differently. Pheromones are released from your skin and pores, so you should keep your skin as natural as possible. This means using soaps free of fragrances and strong smells. Other people claim that bathing less than normal will also heighten your natural smell. It is important to practice good hygiene, but others may pick up on your pheromones instead of soaps with less bathing.
