Get Your Heart On
Romance is in the air and love is in season. Are you tired of the same old flowers and chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Try something new this year. At Discover Teas we have an herbal blend called AphroTEAsiac which is part of our WellTEAing lineup. It is a blend based on an old Chinese formula for erectile dysfunction. However, this blend is not male specific; the herbs used effect both men and women in helping increase circulation and stimulation. Enjoy a cup together and see where the mood takes you.
The key ingredients in AphroTEAsiac are Damiana, Angelica Root, Anise, and rose buds.
Damiana is one of the main ingredients. It has traditionally been used for impotence. Often proscribed as a male sexual remedy for erectile dysfunction, it can aid with ability to achieve and maintain an erection. It may help prevent premature ejaculation by increasing blood flow to the genitals, which also increases sensitivity for both men and women.
Damiana has been shown to help revive lost sex drive in menopausal and perimenopausal women by helping restore depleted testosterone. For the same reason, it may be beneficial if a man is suffering from Low T and with your doctor's approval, may be a good transition into taking medications to help restore low testosterone.
Damiana has also been used as a mood enhancer, as it alleviates stress and anxiousness—hence helping to soothe mild mood-dampening tension.
Roses carry the highest electromagnetic frequency on the planet and are associated with love, success, health and spirituality. Even the essence of rose raises the body’s energy vibration.
Angelica root has repeatedly shown to have a great effect on increasing circulation to the periphery of the body and the limbs, as well as being a stimulant.
Admittedly the Anise seed in this blend is mainly a flavor note; however it has been touted as an aphrodisiac in many cultures and is also used as a carminative (flatulence reducing) agent—which is helpful if your romantic dinner was a little too rich!
These ingredients are all combined with a blend of Rooibos and Honeybush, both of which are rich in vitamin and mineral content.
It's important to note that AphroTEAsiac will NOT override anyone's personal agency. However, if you and your consenting partner are willing but not quite in the “mood", this may help get you there while making it a much more enjoyable and comfortable journey for both you and your partner. Enjoy responsibly!
