Zestra Arousal Oils – It Felt Amazing!

ZestraWhen I first heard of Zestra Essential Arousal Oils I felt a little skeptical.  I’ve tried a kajillion of these different types of  “arousal” creams and jellies in the past, and I’ve never been terribly impressed.  You put it on your netherbelows, wait a few minutes, and BLAMO!  You are a raging sex kitten.



That crap has never worked for me.  The only thing I’ve ever felt was a little tingling, but nothing more than that–no BLAMO! No sex kitten. However,  I was willing to give Zestra a try because it’s a little bit different from the other stuff that’s out there..

Here’s what it says on their website:

Recommended by doctors, Zestra® is a safe, natural, easy-to-apply blend of botanical oils and extracts that works by heightening a woman’s sense of touch. So you feel more during sex. Experience the Zestra Rush™ within minutes the first time — and every time — you use it.

Zestra is a safe, patented blend of botanicals oils and extracts, created to help women feel more — effortlessly. Topically applied Zestra works within minutes by heightening your sensitivity to touch – for deep, pleasurable sensations, sexual satisfaction and fulfillment.

After applying Zestra to the clitoris and labia, the effects – the Zestra Rush – begin for most women within 3 to 5 minutes and last for up to 45 minutes.

It’s even gotten attention from Good Morning America, The View, The New York Times, Tyra, Rachel Ray, and even Dr. Oz, so it must be good!

After doing a little research and reading the ingredients list (Borage Seed oil, Evening Primrose oil, Angelica Extract, Coleus Forskohill Extract, Theobromine, Anti-Oxidants, and flavor) I could tell it was pretty harmless, so I was excited to give it whirl!

We tore open the packet and it immediately started rolling and spilling out.  So the first impression was that it is very thin, watery, and silky. For that reason I think the pump bottle version is probably the best way to go since the packet is a little messy and some of the stuff gets wasted.  It does not appear to be dark, but it could potentially leave an oil stain on certain colors of sheets, similar to any oil or silicone based fluid.

Since the packet said it had “flavor” in it, we tasted it.  It’s pretty light and non-descript.  It almost tastes like wax lips.  Kinda sweet and subtle. The scent is light and pleasant and also pretty hard to pin down. It did leave a bit of a tingly sensation on the lips and tongue.

Next, I mashed Zestra into my girl area.  My husband has a problem with my use of the word “mash,” so we’ll just say we “gently massaged” it in, but the truth is, I really just mashed it in there because the baby was taking a nap and we had an unpredictable amount of time to get the job done.  Also, it had been a while since we had Sexy Time and I was anxious to get the party started.

Mash or not, the stuff started to burn a little bit almost right away.  I think the product literature describes it as a “gentle warming.” I’ll leave the final determination up to you, as I’m sure different people will have different sensations. In my case, I’d call it a “burning” rather than a “warming,” but make no mistake–it is a good thing, and it doesn’t hurt at all.  It’s a nice kind of burning, but I was a bit underwhelmed.  I waited for my “Zestra Rush” to come, but it never did.  The clock was ticking, so we started doing our thing anyway and ho-lee-shit!

There it was.

It wasn’t so much of a rush like all-of-a-sudden, but I could tell right away that it made my clitoris way more sensitive.  In fact I nearly exploded as soon as my husband touched me there.  It was amazing!  It FELT amazing! Zestra really did increase my sensitivity, which I would describe as low-to-average normally.

That said, it did make sex even more pleasurable than usual and the memory of that will most certainly make me more enthusiastic for the next time.  So, in that way, Zestra can potentially help you become more interested in sex because it just plain feels better. It also might have a more systemic effect once it’s been used more often, but I can’t speak to that… yet. Although the product literature states you should apply it five or ten minutes before intercourse, I found the effects to be quite long-lasting, even up to an hour or more, so it’s possible that it could be used as more of an aphrodisiac by applying it earlier than that, to “get the juices flowing.”

From the other side of the table, my husband reported that he felt some “tingly” effects on his dangly bits. Also he noted that his erection did not seem to subside quite as much during his “recovery” period immediately following–a fact I could corroborate. In fact, he said that he could still “feel something” going on an hour after the first exposure, and that first exposure was only by secondary contact through me. For a while it even looked like we might have a lot more fun, but sure enough life butted in in the form of a waking, crying baby and even those most enticing plans had to be scrapped. Maybe next time!

      I'm don't think Zestra burns to that degree, although everyone is different. Why don't you try the free sample pack and just put a tiny amount on one small area as a tester?

  1. puumba

    Theobromine is in chocolate. It is rumoured to be an aphrodisiac. I don't know how well it would work as a topical.

    Perhaps I will just melt a little bit of 80% cacao on my bride's happy button, and gently clean it all off with my lips and tongue.

  2. Just to add my two cents worth (thats about all its worth;0) I have had problems with the orgasm-issue. I have saddle-parathesia related to a poorly placed needle from a spinal tap *long story* which made my nether regions numb.. a.k.a. NO FEELING!
    After numerous YEARS without a Big OH, I've tried various things.
    I had heard about Niacin-pill form.. and thought I'd give it a try.
    Now at the health food store they had "FLUSHING" and "Non-FLUSHING"; I won't tell you I'm in the medical field (DOH!) but did not understand what this meant.
    I'm a dumb ass
    I took a pill and went to bed.. wanna guess which one I took?
    About ten minutes after words, my face feels warm.. my chest feels warm.. cheesewhiz but my breasticles felt warm!
    My nether regions felt..
    .. then.. my face felt WARMER..
    so I headed for one last dip in the porcelin tank.. before heading to bed.. (HOPING I might get lucky)
    and I turned on the light.. and checked out my face
    My face and neck and breasticles were BEET red.. I'm talking blotchy, small pox/measles red.. HOLY CRAP!
    That did not bode well for any hot an' wet fantasy's for the night.
    I went to bed all blotchy and warm.. feeling tingly a.k.a. ITCHY all over!
    And my va gay gay felt NOTHING!!
    I've just ordered some Zestra from http://www.well.ca a Canadian company.
    Will let y'all know!
