Sensual Herbs

Sensual herbs can fortify the individual in various ways. A person prone to anxiety can ingest some calming herbs that don’t impact libido. Some of these are Valerian root taken in caplets, Lemon Balm or Chamomile taken as tea, or Skullcap in a tincture form only.

Sensual herbs should also be considered for overall health and vitality. Persons prone to illness should consider ‘adaptogens’, such as Siberian Ginseng which works somewhat like Asian Ginseng aka Panax Ginseng, thought to increase libido, in part by stimulating the hypothalamus, resulting in the increased production of sex hormones but without the impact on blood pressure. This helps if a person isn’t really sick but feels chronically lethargic.

Another Adaptogen is Moringa Oleifera which imparts overall energy to the system and a sense of well being and strength.

Its aphrodisiac effect is similar to Muira Puama known as potency bark, and used for male impotence, low sex drive and female issues.

It has similar effects as Yohimbe bark but without the side effects and is reputed to have an awakening effect on sexual desire for both sexes, as well as an increase in sperm production in men.

For thousands of years the Chinese have used WolfBerry and Schisandra. WolfBerry benefits circulation, and is easy to incorporate in your diet. The Schisandra is superior medicine to prolong life. Its reputation is based on the fact that it has all five tastes: Pungent, sweet, sour, bitter, salty.

Its adaptogenic activity increases recovery and levels of nitric oxide in blood during strenuous activity such as vigorous sex. Especially when combined with other kidney tonifying herbs, its formulations prevent premature ejaculation and to help promote endurance.

The sensual herbs listed below are especially known to increase libido.

Anise seed has been regarded as an aphrodisiac for centuries, particularly by the Greeks and Romans.

Nettle Root, by binding to Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG ) in place of testosterone controls levels of free testosterone. After age 45 or so the SHBG binds more testosterone, thereby reducing the levels of free testosterone in the blood. The higher free testosterone, the higher one’s libido.

Puncture Vine may be effective for erectile dysfunction and low libido in men and women. Maca in clinical trials has lowered high blood pressure, increased sperm count, increased sex drive in men and women, alleviated hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Best taken in tablets or pills, as it doesn’t taste good.

Wolfberry Plant

Yohimbe Bark

Tongkat Ali aka ‘LongJack’ is a tree which grows in Malysia, Indonisia and Thailand and has been used in Asia to increase sexual desire and performance.

Damiana is well known in southwestern cultures as a sexuality tonic and is recommended by many top herbalists. It stimulates the intestinal tract and brings oxygen to the genitals increasing energy levels to restore libido and desire.

In women, Damiana often restores the ability to achieve orgasm. Long term use can improve sexual fitness and performance.

The libido-boosting power hasn't been tested in humans, although a liquor made from the leaves has been used as an aphrodisiac in Mexico.

Its chemical composition is complex and all of the components have not been completely identified. How it works as an aphrodisiac is currently not known. When drunk as a tea it has a relaxing effect not-unlike low doses of cannabis.
