“A couple that plays together - stays together”. That play includes experimenting with sex, foods and herbs. Some authorities will tell you that there is no such thing as an aphrodisiac.
A herb (actually a bark off a North African tree, but banner in Australia) named Yohimbe has been classified in a medical test as a true aphrodisiac. It certainly is the most powerful!
However, there are many others still legally available within Australia. Although not as strong as Yohimbe, their effects are certainly felt where it counts. Damiana tea inspires erotic dreams, balances hormones, is a Kidney tonic, anti-depressant and increases libido and fertility both in men and women. Damiana is even used today in Mexico to increase the potency of stud bulls!
Saw palmetto berry, one of the two best medicines for the prostate, also rejuvenates that area. This berry has been used successfully to reverse atrophy of the testes and mammary glands. Another great herb. It can make you horny too, especially when taken with Damiana!
Sarsaparilla contains testosterone, the male sex hormone. This hormone can bring on secondary sex characteristics when they are slow to develop, enlarge an underdeveloped penis, overcome physical impotence and improve the health, muscle one, energy and sex drive of older men.
Ginseng is also used by oriental men to prolong life, retain virility and regulate the flow of hormones, strengthening heart, nerves and glands and to improve circulations and sexual potency. Ancient Indian texts claim that ginseng “bestows on men both young and old, the power of a bull”.
No bull, these herbs do have an effect! And all these come combines in herbal tea form as “Hard n Up” available through The Happy Herb Company.
The best herb for couples to have before bed is Muira Puama (the wood shavings of a South American tree). This bark contains a resin which has strong stimulating effects upon the central nervous system and libido. Best simmered in Vodka it somehow warms up the nether regions and pretty soon it’s all happening!
Damiana also makes an excellent aphrodisiac tea before love making, relaxing a couple for a night of romance.
