More than just a food that puts you in the mood.

Chocolate and oysters are common on “Top Aphrodisiacs to Get it On!” lists. But an Aphrodisiac is more than just a food that puts you in the mood. If you’re looking to support sexual wellness, ease physical and emotional discomfort associated with intimacy or physical closeness you’ve come to the right place.


What is an Herbal Aphrodisiac?

Aphrodisiacs have a reputation for enhancing sexual enjoyment, boosting libido, and increasing desire. But, since we’re herbalists, we have to push up our glasses and interject. Because, that’s not the whole picture.

Herbal aphrodisiacs are herbs that calm the body and mind by nourishing and supporting the nervous system, cardiovascular system, and reproductive system. They work through many systems to help the body release tension and move blood. Aphrodisiacs get blood pumping to areas in your body that are involved in physical and emotional intimacy: the heart and the pelvic floor. They also cool you off and calm you down allowing you to access more comfort and joy in your body. From a place of supported relaxation it's way easier to sense and experience the physical and emotional expressions of desire in your body. This foundation makes it possible to be vulnerable and stay present with yourself, another human, or the natural world in a way that feels safe and fun. Intimacy is not just about sex.

Our Favorite Herbal Aphrodisiacs

Of course our favorite herbal aphrodisiacs are ones that taste good. That’s why we bottled 4 deliciously rousing herbs into our formula Aphrodisia.

  • Rose works to soften and open the heart so you can experience ease and comfort in moments of closeness with yourself or others.
  • Shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb that promotes healthy sexual organs by keeping them nourished and strong.
  • Schisandra is an adaptogen that soothes and supports the nervous and endocrine systems.
  • Cinnamon diffuses stuck feelings and habits that make a home in us overtime.

We also love the kitchen aphrodisiacs that are easily accessible. The herbal aphrodisiacs that are easy to come by in a refrigerator, spice cabinet, or pantry are ones we consistently turn to.  

  • Cacao
  • Vanilla
  • Chamomile
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom

Who Benefits from Herbal Aphrodisiacs?

The simple answer: everyone. Tight muscles and gripping thoughts aren’t exactly a turn on. But you don’t have to engage in physical acts of intimacy to work with herbal aphrodisiacs. Aphrodisiacs are super good at helping you release stress by supporting and calming multiple systems in the body. So anyone who’s experiencing an uptick in stress can benefit from herbal aphrodisiacs.

Stress can make you hyper focused on your body in a way that’s distracting. It can also take you out of your body, which can make you feel separate from yourself and your environment. If you’re worried about that deadline, obsessed with checking your email, or consumed with the complex feelings many of us have about our bodies - we live in a confusing world that sends us lots of terrible messages about who we are and how we should look - aphrodisiacs can help all of that quiet down.These herbs don’t ask us to change who we are, they help us gently shed unkind ideas about ourselves and habits we cling to that keep us disconnected from ourselves and one another. Herbal aphrodisiacs are for anyone who wants to be more in touch with their body, their desires, and their pleasure.

Get calm, get present, get into herbal aphrodisiacs.
