Damiana! Herbal Aphrodisiacs

Damiana is a spicy plant native to Mexico that increases blood flow to the pelvic region.

I’m drinking Love Tea right now.

Here is what’s in it: Cinnamon, Damiana, Violet Leaf, Rose Hips & Rose Petals.

We have an amazing shop here in St. Louis called Cheryl’s Herbs. Nestled in downtown Maplewood on Manchester, it’s a fantastic local resource for dried herbs, aromatherapy, essential oil extracts, and natural medicine.

Forget the blue pill and other synthetic sexual aids – try something more natural to boost your vitality. Cheryl’s Herbs uses products from whole plant parts instead of just one chemical extracted. They studied plants for over 10 years in China and have been sharing their passion with St. Louis for over 20 years.

“There is a beautiful wisdom between plants and our body,” Cheryl told me as we sat in the library sipping raspberry leaf tea (good for the uterus).

Cheryl’s offers a Male Formula liquid extract as well as a Female Formula. Both are intended to promote healthy libido. You can take it daily, or right before play.

They also sell For Him and For Her, which help balance out the right amount of hormones.

If you want to target specific plants for sexytime, look for Damiana for women. Yohimbe is an African plant good for men (avoid if you have high blood pressure.) Ashwagandha is an Indian plant root that has been used for over 2500 years  to enhance either gender’s vitality and stamina.

In addition to the herbs, Cheryl’s Herbs also offer yoga, massage, and an extensive alternative medicine library where a variety of workshops occur. There is always a knowledgeable employee at the counter who can guide you toward what you are seeking. When you visit, ask for a copy of Ingrid Petres’ informative article on Herbal and Aromatic Aphrodisiacs. In it she lists Maca, Muira Puama, Cacao and more. Be sure to stop and smell the rose oil, as well as jasmine, ylang ylang, and sandalwood…

Since my visit, I’ve been  taking Korean ginseng daily as a whole body tonic, and thanks to this Love Tea, the blood flow to my pelvic region is feeling pretty Damiana good right now.

What plants turn YOU on?

  1. Um, I would just like to point out the problems involved with anecdotal health information and ingestable substances that are not regulated. I may be missing something, but a quick search on Damiana suggests that it does not increase blood flow to the pelvic region– instead, most of the sources I was able to find pointed to a 1999 Italian study suggesting a link between Damiana and increased frequency of copulation in normally sexually disinterested male rats. Are there other studies I have missed in my quick-and-sloppy investigation?
