the herbalist corner 2/17:
Aphrodisiacs have always intrigued us here at Breeze Botanicals. From their potent, lust giving abilities, to the tasty flavors and aromas of the variety of edible aphrodisiacs out there- I just want to try them all, and I am sure you share the same urges. Before I decided to indulge in my favorite lovely treats this month, I decided to do a little research first. What is an aphrodisiac anyway, and where did they come from? Here’s a quick glimpse into that fantastic tale, and some herbal accompaniments that may just enhance your love life in all the right ways.
A very brief re-telling of the story of the Greek Goddess, Aphrodite, sheds some light on the progression of the history and integration of these powerful herbal elixirs and allies that blurred the line between medicine and magic. Aphrodite, of which aphrodisiac was later named, was famed for her delectable treats known to increase sex drive and performance. The only catch: in exchange for these much desired traits was the consumption of a few succulent and fresh...dove brains!
But do not fret, there are a few tastier options available to us that have those same spicy effects! There are a variety of aphrodisiacs that are steeped in both science and lore, but one of my favorites is definitely chocolate! Sun God Medicinals, Ra Cannabis Chocolate Squares, available in both peppermint and orange flavors, are blended with a silky cocoa that is sure to tickle the senses. Chocolate, and more properly cacao, has been used by the Mayans for centuries for both ritual and daily consumption. It is considered an aphrodisiac because of how it can spike the dopamine of the pleasure center of the brain, resulting in “all the feels”.
At Breeze Botanical stores, we carry Sun god Medicinals compounded blends of potent aphrodisiacs and other supportive herbs, formulated to help you achieve your most pleasurable experiences yet! From single herbal tincture of Rose and Damiana to Lemon Balm and Motherwort, to herbal tea blends such as the Heka Happy Tea and Hercules Muscle Ease Tea, all make easy additions to any daily routine, that can add that little bit of enjoyment to your day that you surely deserve. Stop by Breeze Botanical stores to check out these products, and many more of our lovely herbal options!
