Organic Looseleaf & Caffeine-Free Herbal Tea
Cultures around the world have been using herbs as “love enhancers.” The term aphrodisiac stems from the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. Aphrodisiacs have the ability to help arouse sexual desire, enhance sexual potency and provoke the love God(dess) in us all. Aphrodisiacs help to increase blood flow to our sweet spots, calm the mind and body so that we may ease into sexual connection with our partner and to enhance libido.
Aphrodisiac herbs nourish the nervous, heart, and reproductive systems on both physical and energetic levels. Physically, they tonify the body and support balanced function, enhance physical desire (libido), and improve performance. Energetically, they balance and love up the heart and sacral chakras and increase pleasure. You may notice that many of these plants are also nervines — plants that are relaxing to the nervous system — and this is part of their aphrodisiac effect. By calming stress and soothing tension in the mind and heart, they enable one to focus on other more sensual and pleasureful pursuits. (Herbal Academy, 2015)
Damiana leaf has been used for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac. Its ancient reputation as an aphrodisiac in South America is reflected in one of its Latin names — Turnera aphrodisiaca. Damiana can help elevate your mood and reduce stress. It has both a stimulating and relaxing effect that can increase energy levels and decrease anxiety, nervousness and tension. It helps to increase blood flow and stimulation in sexual organs.
Damiana is a sexy, fiery herb that stimulates the sacral chakra, increasing desire and excitement. This aphrodisiac effect is in no small part due to damiana’s role as a nourishing and relaxing nervine, helping to lift the spirit and release anxiety and tension, allowing one to open to connection. Damiana helps one to overcome sexual impotence and low libido due to its potential testosterone-like action (Hoffmann, n.d.).
On an energetic level, hibiscus is a very sensual and sexy plant, its diuretic properties encourage movement and release in the sacral region while its pleasureful nature helps one open to intimate connection and receiving.
Sarsaparilla is used in Chinese Medicine as an aphrodisiac and a sexual stimulant and tonic for the male reproductive system. It helps regulate testosterone, progesterone, and hormone production in both men and women, boosting libido and potency.
Long associated with lovers, Rose balances the emotions and is often associated with heart healing. Rose has been used to increase libido, rejuvenate the reproductive system and enhance fertility. It has cooling properties and calming feminine energy that helps reduce anxiety and depression.
Ginger is a fiery, warming herb that stimulates circulation and energy, enhancing the “fire” in the body that invigorates the reproductive system for men and women, treating impotence due to lack of vital heat in the body (Gladstar, 2001). Its long reputation as an aphrodisiac is earned by its ability to stimulate circulation to the pelvic area, enhancing sexual vitality.
