Damiana is a small flowering shrub native to Central and South America. Damiana's traditional purpose was as a tea for its relaxing, sedating, and aphrodisiac effects. Damiana Essential Oil is valued as a nerve relaxant, mood enhancer, and digestive stimulant. Damiana has an astounding effect on one's sexual energy. As a result, it will also have an effect on all aspects of the sacral chakra. The increase of energy in this chakra allows for a boost in digestive functioning, easing constipation and making digestive conditions more comfortable.
Specific Benefits of Damiana Essential Oil are as follows:Aphrodisiac... Damiana Essential Oil has recently been found to increase oxygen flow to the genital areas, encouraging far more energy to flow to them. This results in a natural sexual stimulation for both men and women. In turn, Damiana Essential Oil assists with frigidity, reduced libido, and impotence.
Whole body tonic... Emotionally, Damiana helps balances the emotions connected to sexual and menstrual problems, because the oil is relaxing, balancing, and uplifting. It is often used to reduce anxiety, and thanks to its balancing effect on the sacral chakra, it initiates and promotes creativity.
