Damiana Herb - Herbal Tea
A shrub native to Mexico, South America and the West Indies, Damiana blooms with small yellow flowers and produces fruit that is similar to figs.
Damiana is used medicinally as well as recreationally as it is often made into liquors such as being used in Margaritas and is a component in traditional Mexican liquor. Damiana’s recreational use continues as it is often smoked and has qualities much like Cannabis; however, Damiana is milder and more relaxing. Damiana’s relaxing effect is increased when used in combination with Passionflower.
Damiana’s history is laden with uses of Damiana as an aphrodisiac and used as far back as the Mayan Indians thousands of years ago. Damiana is said to boost sexual potency and has been a treatment for premature ejaculation, and impotency in men; in the last 100 years has also been used to increase libido in women as well.
