4 Effective Herbs to Boost Your Sex Drive

For many, finding natural or alternative solutions to common physical ailments is of the utmost importance. As many as 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men have experienced some sort of sexual dysfunction. According to statistics, a common dysfunction among many men and women is a low libido. Fortunately, when it comes to a lowered libido or low sex drive, there are affordable and all-natural solutions in the form of herbs, spices and other plants.

At Emanuel’s Elixirs, we carefully concoct special blends of herbs to target different responses in the body. As certified herbalists from the California School of Herbal Studies, we realize that understanding the causes of a lowered libido greatly impacts choosing the appropriate remedies. Here are four effective herbs we utilize in our elixirs to boost your sex drive!

1. Damiana Leaf 
This dried leaf has historically been recognized for energizing the organs of both sexes through the stimulation of the genital areas through an increase in oxygen supply. The herb elicits an overall relaxing effect and allows you to connect to your more sensual side. Since stress and anxiety are two main causes of a lowered libido, this herb is effective in calming those tensions so you can focus on other more pleasurable thoughts instead. In addition, men and women have experienced increased energy.* 

2. Horny Goat Weed Leaf
This leaf is found in a variety of our tonics for men since it elicits a moderate androgen-like effect on the gonads. This effect is what causes the increase in libido for an overall improved sexual performance. It contains a flavonoid that promotes a fuller, more prolonged engorgement of the erectile tissues with blood. Horny Goat Weed is often associated with improved erectile function in men, and it even relieves PMS in women. It is rooted in Chinese history and is said to have been used for more than 2,000 years!* 

3. Kava Kava Root
Kava Kava Root works primarily as a body and mind relaxer. It’s said to relieve nervousness and stress as well as tight muscles, and its euphoric qualities have culturally been found in a recreational beverage that promotes social discourse throughout the Pacific Islands. It’s soothing properties are unique in that your senses remain clear – no foggy feeling here. Each one of our elixirs is handcrafted by steeping the organic Kava in a combo of organic grain alcohol, water, glycerin and organic apple cider vinegar. Each elixir is different based on the solubility of the desired chemical constituents of each herb.*

4. Yarrow Leaf and Flower
You can find Yarrow Leaf and Flower in all of our fast-acting tonics. Yarrow tones the blood vessels by encouraging blood flow and preventing blood clots. It balances the warming and stimulating qualities of the other herbs in our tonics to prevent over-heating and over-stimulation.*
