Getting in the right mood is undoubtedly the key to any sexual relationship. Aphrodisiacs are natural ingredients known to help with sexual arousal through interaction with our limbic system. An aphrodisiac can be any food, drink, or anything that turns you on sexually.

So let’s explore the natural and traditional aphrodisiacs already proven to work, especially for women. If you want to incorporate one of these 7 ingredients into your daily life, rest assured that they will help you overcome the obstacles to sexual arousal.

MACA, THE SUPERFOOD OF THE INCAS

Maca – Taken grounded or powdered, this superfood from the Andes can be eaten raw or even added to all kinds of dishes and drinks.

Maca works wonders for women’s overall health, as it is an effective hormone balancer. Not only increases libido, but it also helps regulate ovulation. It is also a fertility enhancer. Daily consumption of 3 grams of maca will ensure these positive results.

GINKGO BILOBA, AN ANCIENT AND SACRED CHINESE SECRET

You have probably heard of Ginkgo Biloba before. It has become furiously popular in recent years with the advent of health-oriented diet programs. 

Ginkgo Biloba’s leaves have positive effects on all stages of sexual intercourse, including desire, up to lubrication, and orgasm. Not only that, but it is also capable of significantly improving endurance.

Favorite ways to consume Ginkgo Biloba include infusions or teas, tinctures, or sometimes oven roasting. 

CALAMUS, ALSO KNOWN AS SWEET FLAG

Another well-known aphrodisiac herb is the calamus a.k.a the sweet flag, calamus root, flag root, muskrat root, or the sweet flag. 

Calamus is widely used as a spice, especially in Arabic cuisine. It’s sweet at first and ends with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A daily dose of 3 grams is considered to be perfectly fine and safe.

Beware, excessive consumption of the calamus can cause some side effects. It’s all about the dosage. It can overstimulate the uterus, so it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. 

CLAVO HUASCA, THE KEY TO INTENSE PASSION

Whether you’re trying to achieve harder erections or boost your libido, Clavo Huasca is the best solution for you and your partner.

Widely used as a libido enhancer in pre-menopausal women and as a male aphrodisiac for erectile function, it also helps strengthen the hair and nourish the skin. 

If you’re using it as an aphrodisiac, it is much more effective to increase the dosage by taking a couple of teaspoons of the powder and brewing an infusion in hot water or milk. Its effect should start within 30 minutes.

BUTEA SUPERBA, THE SUPER STIMULANT FROM SOUTH ASIA

You can recognize Butea Superba by some of its more common names, such as Red Kwao Krua, creeping Butea, rubber Butea tree, the flame of the forest, or climbing palms.

The best way to consume it is capsules due to its particularly acidic taste. To get the most of the libido enhancing effects, you should take it regularly 2-3 times a day for at least a couple of days.

COLA NUT, A NATURAL STIMULANT LIKE CAFFEINE

You probably know that this plant was one of the original ingredients of Coca-Cola. Coca leaves have been used for ages to increase physical activity. 

Kola nuts contain caffeine and tannins. Tannins reduce the absorption of caffeine, thus prolonging sexual performance and significantly increasing libido. It is a general energizer and stimulant that also increases blood oxygen levels and improves concentration. The perfect all-day food supplement!

GINSENG, PUMPS YOUR SEXUAL DESIRE TO THE MAXIMUM

Ginseng is one of the most popular and beneficial foods for human health. It can be found fresh, cut into small pieces and dried, or even finely ground with a sandy texture.

Ginseng contains arginine, an amino acid that is responsible for initiating certain physiological responses such as increased blood flow in the genitals, reduced vaginal dryness, increased sensitivity in the clitoris, and of course, female orgasm.

This phenomenal ingredient is known to improve mood, increase stamina, treat heart disease as well as fatigue. All these benefits add to the supportive action of sexual activity.

The lies they told you about your period

Period myths

We have all come across many “No-s” when it comes to our period…“You can’t do this”, “You can’t do that”, “No blah blah”. Well, the reality is that physically there is nothing that prevents us from doing our favorite activities, even when society insists on telling us otherwise.

So, what are these common things they tend to say “you cannot do” during your period? In today’s blog, we’re debunking some of the most common myths. Keep on reading to find out!

“You can’t exercise!”

Many times we have been told that during those days we should not exercise. Well, the reality is that exercising during the period helps relieve pain since exercising releases endorphins that generate a feeling of well-being. This results in better performance, sleep, mood and in combating period cramps and PMS symptoms. Just make sure you have plenty of fluids and keep a check on a healthy diet. Unless you don’t feel like exercising, keep on going, girl!

“You can’t go to the beach or pool!”

This is one of the most absurd beliefs of the period. Sure we can get in the water and enjoy our vacation. Just make sure to use a tampon or menstrual cup and be careful to change it when you go out. And no, don’t worry, you will not bleed in the pool or attract sharks with your period blood. That’s taking it a little too far.

“You can’t have sex!”

Many women still believe that it is not possible to have sex during their period. Well, of course, you can! During the period, sex turns out to be more pleasant since the vagina and cervix are more sensitive and allow even more pleasure. But beware! Always remember to use protection since you can get STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) or even get pregnant.

“You can’t have a hot shower. Hot showers increase the flow!”

If there is one thing about hygiene and personal care, it’s that it is never harmful. Hot water can help stimulate blood flow, relieve menstrual cramps, and ease muscular tension. Only make sure you don’t burn yourself on scalding water or freeze in icy cold waters. Period or no period, there’s nothing comfortable about that. The pressure from the water may temporarily prevent the blood from flowing out of the vagina. Although as soon as you are out of your shower, everything will be back to normal.

What do you do during your period that you were always told you couldn’t do?
