Staying at home for months on end obviously brought with it an onslaught of downsides, with stress and anxiety impeding even the most fundamental of life’s pleasures: sex. For many people, libidos have become as nonexistent as in-person social lives. But if you’re struggling to turn up the heat with a partner (or yourself!), it may be worthwhile seeking a helping hand from one of nature’s most potent aphrodisiacs.
Damiana (Turnera Diffusa) is widely hailed as the holy grail of natural libido boosters. As one of the world’s oldest known aphrodisiacs, the plant’s use has been dated back to the ancient Aztecs, Mayans, and Guaycura. Something that’s this ‘tried and tested’ stands witness to its powerful aphrodisiacal effects, right?
The studies don’t lie. Research into the bioactive principles of the plant found over 35 active compounds with medicinal effects. In fact, the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia specifically lists Damiana-infused products as a method of treatment for impotency and even coital inadequacy – like nature’s very own brand of Viagra, minus the nasty pharmaceutical side effects! So next time you need a helping hand spicing things up with your partner, reach for that little pleasure potion to boost your sex drive, mood and orgasmic experiences!
How To Take Damiana
Like most herbs and plants, there are a number of ways in which damiana can be ingested. It can be smoked for a ritualistic experience, brewed as a tea, or enjoyed as a delicious chocolate edible – your date night dessert, sorted!
This damiana tincture is infused with rose, making it easy to integrate into your self-care ritual for a better sense of calm and joy. You can also try damiana essential oils to quell your anxiety and restore a sense of bodily balance in your daily routine.
Whichever way you choose to invite this wonderful adaptogen into your life, it’ll act as the perfect tonic for reawakening intimacy, sexual wellness and heart-centeredness. Explore the natural ancient knowledge of plant medicine, because this may be the recuperative remedy you’ve been looking for.
