Aphrodite's love potion is a cheeky blend designed to increase focus on physical sensations and stimulate sensual perception.
I love the taste, it's relaxing, helps to relieve stress and is also really beneficial for men's and women's reproductive organs.
And obviously with Valentine's Day on the way...why not add a little touch of spice to your daily routine!
Nowadays, everyone is stressed, busy and as a consequence often tired. This potion is the little extra that can help bring focus on physical sensations rather than on the to-do list.
What's in it?
Organic Catuaba Bark
The historic traditional use of this herbal tonic is legendary.
Many say it is the most famous of all Amazonian aphrodisiac plants. The effect is particularly pronounced in men.
It is a strong tonic and nervous system fortifier.
It is known for its general capability of giving strength and relieving fatigue.
Organic Muira Puama
Sometimes also known as the ‘Viagra of the Amazon’ in the West or ‘Potent wood’ by the Amazon natives.
Muira Puama has been used to improve psychological and physical aspects of libido and sexual function, including menstrual cramps and PMS, for centuries.
Muira Puama is also a good tonic for the nervous system, which may be beneficial in terms of stress management and mild exhaustion.

Spearmint contains vitamins, antioxidants, and vital nutrients.
It has very similar benefits to peppermint such as improving digestion and circulation, reducing pain, eliminating inflammation and balancing hormones.
Did you know? The iron content in a single serving of spearmint is more than 100% of the daily recommended amount.
Also known as Goddess of Love, Love Leaf, Mexican Holly, Damiana was used by the Aztecs for impotency and Mexican women were also known to use it to stimulate sensual sensations. It can also promote pleasant dreams (quite possibly erotic within the first 7 days!)
This plant is so important to Mexico that is has been classified as a ‘national treasure’ and is now prohibited to export it as a live plant.
Damiana produces a mild emotional uplift, acts as an anti-depressant and a calming tonic.
It is also useful in weaning people off tobacco and alcohol. It can be used as a smoking medium for a healthy party alternative.
It is a tonic for the kidneys, the sexual organs and the nervous system.
Many women have noticed that symptoms of PMT, as well as menopause, disappear with regular use of damiana.
This medical-grade ginger from China is steam sterilised to preserve freshness and taste.
Originally from Asia, ginger has been used for its medicinal purposes for nearly 2,000 years by various cultures. It contains high levels of Vitamin C, magnesium and other minerals.

Malva has the ability to speed wound healing, protect against infection and reduce inflammation.
It is also known to reduce signs of ageing, improve respiratory health, digestion, sleep, and treat headaches.
The flowers are particularly useful as a soothing gargle or tea.
Maca is known to balance hormones as it contains the nutrients necessary to support normal hormone production. It nourishes the hormonal system and reduces stress hormones. It can improve your mood and reduce symptoms of menopause.
It has also been used to increase fertility and libido.
It is naturally high in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), sterols, up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fibre, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids.

Rose petals are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

This important vitamin can help protect skin cells from damage.
Ginseng is an excellent immune booster. It can increase mental, physical efficiency and resistance to stress and disease.
It can help balance the body depending on the individual's needs!

Men have used the herb to improve sexual function and it is believed to increase estrogen levels in women, therefore useful in treating menopausal symptoms.
Organic Star Anise (China)
Star anise is antispasmodic, antiseptic, sedative, digestive and is stimulant.
It promotes healthy respiration and digestion. It helps to eliminate toxins by increasing urine flow and supports oral health.
By increasing the estrogen levels in the blood, anise tea can help to regulate menstrual cycles and reduce some of the unpleasant symptoms associated with menstruation. It also can help to ease the transition through menopause.
