Natural AphrodisiacsFirst of all it is important to establish exactly what an aphrodisiac is. Basically it is any substance either naturally or chemically created that increases the sexual desire. The word Aphrodisiac comes from Aphrodite the Greek Goddess of sexuality and love .Herbs, oils, and other aphrodisiacs have been used in all cultures around the world to stimulatefeelings of love, sensuality, desire, and sexual arousal. It is also claimed that naturalaphrodisiacs can enhance sexual abilities, and even mitigate sexual dysfunctions.There is even a mention of the mandrake root in the Bible’s Book of Genesis (30:14-16) as anaphrodisiac, and Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.) used herbal scents such as frankincense and myrrhas aphrodisiacs. It has also been written by more than one historian that Cleopatra used theintoxicating scents of cinnamon, cardamom, and rose along with the tastes of chocolate and rarecurries to bewitch and entice her lovers.Herbal practitioners believe aphrodisiacs can help overcome emotional challenges such asanxiety, stress, or trauma, and even directly overcome physical issues such as difficulty witherections or lubrication.In addition, any herb preparation that eradicates illness or provides nutrients that have beenlacking in the body can be considered an aphrodisiac. This is especially true if sexual urges andsexual life return as a result of using it.It has to be pointed out that medical scientists maintain that there is no such thing as anaphrodisiac. They say that there is no evidence that any, food, potion or drink can improve aperson sex drive or enjoyment.However, there are many people who claim to have experienced improved sexual awarenessand desire through taking certain drinks, potions or foods. Although medical experts may
disagree and put any perceived improvement down to the “placebo effect” there is little doubtthat for many of us aphrodisiacs can work.How something was first perceived as a natural aphrodisiac can result from its shape. This isknown as sympathetic magic and examples of this include Oysters or the phallic-looking horn ofthe rhinoceros. Other animal based aphrodisiacs gain their reputation from the apparent virilityor aggressiveness of the animal which is why in certain parts of the world the Tiger’s penis is insuch demand. It might also explain why the rabbit’s foot is also considered a lucky charm.
