Damiana Aromatherapy Blend Introduction
The Mayas used damiana as an aphrodisiac, but more specifically as a remedy for "giddy" love. The blend was considered more important for focusing sexual energies than for creating them. Damiana has been popularly used across the Southwestern United States and Mexico as an aphrodisiac and for asthma, bronchitis, neurosis, diabetes, dysentery, dyspepsia, headaches, paralysis, nephrosis, spermatorrhea, stomachache, and syphilis. The current edition of the British Pharmacopoeia recommends the blend for "anxiety neurosis with a predominant sexual factor, depression, nervous dyspepsia, atonic constipation, and coital inadequacy."
Damiana Aromatherapy Blend Typical Preparations
May be mixed with other aromatherapy blends as a tea blend, as the taste of it alone is rather bitter. It may also be compounded into an elixer, as a capsule and in extract form.
