Seduction, herbalist style.
Roses out-of-season, meh.
Greeting cards, meh.
Chocolate – duh (extra dark, please).
Dishes done, childcare handled – now yer talking.
Back rubs, a delicious night out (bonus points for dance, fresh air/natural beauty, live music or art), laughter, excellent conversation, consent – for sure.
And if you really want to give your herbalist partner something exquisitely pleasurable (or yourself, if it’s self-loving on the agenda)…pull out some herbal aphrodisiacs and deepen into a whole new level of fun and intimacy –
“Wait!”, you say, “Aphrodisiacs are real?”
Why, yes they are.
And they aren’t just for herbalists, of course…You too can give your libido a nudge in the direction of juicy, with a tincture like Love Potion #9,
from the amazing formulators at Seattle’s The Herbalist. Or head on over to our friend Joan Greeley’s shop at Plant Wisdom Within for her incredible, inspired line-up of eight different Pleasure Cordials
, including formulas like the enticing Cacao-Rose Love Elixir, Vacation Sex, and Aphrodite’s Aperitif!
“Pleasure Cordials are a thing?”, you say.
Infused with herbal constituents that help you relax your mind and body, bring circulation to the pelvic area and lubrication to the important bits, herbal aphrodisiacs* can really help you get down with your sensual self.
As with all herbal products, some are great and some not at all. SO, look for a nice, handcrafted tincture like the ones mentioned above or shop locally and look for herbs like Damiana (Turnera diffusa)
, Rose (Rosa spp.), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus)
, Oats (Avena Sativa), or Catuaba (Trachillia catigua). Or, even better…..go see an herbalist
who can make a recommendation to you personally. If your libido is low, aphrodisiacs may be a part of the solution, but you may also benefit from tweaks (or an overhaul) to your eating or lifestyle, to help you find your spark.
