What are aphrodisiacs?

Aphrodisiacs are substances that increase sexual desire such as foods, herbs, drinks or drugs.

As any woman will tell you, the best aphrodisiacs are the ones that activate the mind body and spirit; both physical and emotional needs require attention, unlike many sexual products that focus more on physical performance and hormonal balance. Aphrodisiac herbs have the potential to increase both male and female libido as well as help with connection, consecration of love and communication. When these herbs are used as bonding tools for lovers they can help deepen relationships. Or if you just want to experience something new aphrodisiac herbs are certainly worth experimenting with. Now keep in mind not all aphrodisiacs work on everybody the same and may take a few days to feel there effects, so it is best to find the ones you prefer. Here’s a top 10 list of some of the strongest real herbal aphrodisiacs I know of!

1. Ginseng- Its one of the bestselling herbs in the United States and is used in many aphrodisiac products. In much of Asia, ginseng is prized as a revitalizer for the whole body. The root is famous for its human like appearance and is used for its various curative properties. It’s deeply nourishing for the hormonal system due to its phyto-chemical properties. It is said that ginseng is known to increase sexual arousal.

2. Maca root- Maca has been shown to have a positive effect on the libido and increase fertility, making a great alternative to popular drugs on the market. It’s a hormonal balancer for the body by supporting the pituitary gland functions, resulting in increases in estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Raising these hormones means increased sexual desire.

3. Clavo Huasca- Otherwise known as the “Vine of the Nail” or “Vine of the Clove”. It is highly regarded as an aphrodisiac for both sexes- but especially for women! Native tribes in the Amazon use ClavoHuasca for strong erections and increased blood flow to those special parts! It is also added to a sacred psychedelic brew for healing sexual truamas and major digestive problems.
