These days there appears to be a somewhat negative stigma attached to ‘aphrodisiacs’. 

People seem reluctant to talk about it and are embarrassed to mention that they indulge in them from time-to-time.

But why can’t we openly talk about aphrodisiacs like we openly discuss all other parts of our lives?

They are all around us, and we don’t even realise it. It was in my studies as a herbal healer that I found the benefits of consuming natural aphrodisiacs and discovered cultures that still embrace natural aphrodisiacs around the world.

I am a firm believer in feeding your body beautiful and natural ingredients and have discovered many ingredients that are commonly used in products that give you that oomph you sometimes need. Women should embrace the use of aphrodisiacs and not think of them as something they turn to in a negative way. They should see them as a form of natural empowerment and treat themselves.

If you’re feeling like your libido is low, don’t worry; you’re not the only one. A study done in the USA in 2008 showed that one in three women have low sexual desire. One in three. That is a huge amount!

So why aren’t more women turning to natural aphrodisiacs to bring back their desire? That’s one of the reasons why I started my all natural aphrodisiac range, Cleopatra. I wanted to create products that gave women that inspiration to gain confidence and get back in the bedroom.

Some common natural aphrodisiac ingredients that I wanted to bring back into circulation were:

  1. Damiana: a native Mexican plant that’s been used for years to help women achieve orgasm and feel relaxed.
  2. Horny Goat Weed: an ingredient that gets a lot of smirks and giggles – but it truly works! It was discovered in Asia and is common in Chinese medicine. It increases blood flow and gets you in the mood.
  3. Maca: a natural ingredient that has been used in the Andes for thousands of years. It’s been proven to enhance sexual thoughts and inspire interaction in both sexes.

Ladies, don’t be ashamed to get your hands on products that have these ingredients in them – they are natural and have been put on this earth for a reason, so embrace them!

  • If it works for you and you enjoy it, go fir it I say! It’s not for everyone mind you


  • Still haven’t had a chance to try any of these natural products!


  • Thanks for this article. Although you can be in love with your partner that will push is still needed to be intimate.


  • to me the greatest aphrodisiacts are a man who is my best friend, who has a great sence of hummer and has not got a wondering eye


  • interestingly i saw an article that said aphrodisiacs dont actually up your libido and that its all just a big myth.


  • Well worth a try! And all natural to boot.


  • If you need them get them! Nothing is better than a great sex life.

    although if me or my partner werento start using them we might do physical injury to ourselves lol

    • wow lol! having a great sex life also means that you are comfortable with each other. like me, it seems that you have found “the one”




  • awesome and amusing article! i haveeeeee to laugh at the name- horny goat weed– was there not a better alternative? “extremely excited monkey” anyone? lol


  • I use Maca powder to aid recovery from exercise, I have heard it is also good for your skin and can ease the symptoms of menopause. I can’t say I’ve noticed any sexual side effects though.


  • I think a good night’s sleep would suffice for enhancing my mood!

    • I agree! Definitely a good night of sleep!


  • I had some Damiana in the cupboard that you can make tea out of. I knew about the relaxation side of things but never knew it was am aphrodisiac lol


  • I didn’t think aphrodisiacs actually worked which is why they don’t get promoted.
    I’ve not heard much about them to be honest, thanks for your article.


  • I see what you are saying. But not everything that is natural needs to be embraced!


  • Thanks for sharing this interesting article; suggest checking whether any of these impact with any other medications or supplements taken by people. Need to be somewhat careful with combinations.
