It’s not always easy to navigate the hurried and manufactured pace of this modern society we live in. How did we land in this world full of “should’s”, “have to’s”, and robotic movements? With so much information passing through our minds on a daily basis, it’s easy to find ourselves feeling disconnected from our bodies, our hearts, and the creative passions that make us such beautiful Human Beings.
Have you ever wondered how you could reconnect with your sensual nature and human desires? Damiana is a flowering shrub that is famous for its abilities to increase the libido and calm the nerves. This plant is native to Central and South America and has been used in traditional folk medicine for hundreds of years, dating back to Aztec, Mayan, and Guaycura cultures. In modern times, we often see Damiana utilized in uplifting herbal smoking blends.
The traditional purpose of Damiana was as a relaxing tea and aphrodisiac, and it is considered a catalyst for deep sexual healing to this day. In addition to its mood enhancing and sensual effects, Damiana is also calming for the nervous system, and can be used to boost digestive functioning, easing constipation and making digestive conditions more comfortable.
The sweet candy-like aroma of Damiana Essential Oil synergistically speaks to the child in all of us — a candid glimpse into its history as a pleasant calming drink for children, and a delightful reminder that this plant ally may be potent, but it is also gentle and joyful.
As it energizes and balances the sacral chakra, damiana can also ease feelings of hopelessness and depression, enhance one’s creativity, increase sensuality and libido, soothe headaches, enhance digestive function, and increase stamina. If you feel called to continue exploring your creative sacral force, practice moving the energy from your sacral area up through the top of your soul star chakra. This practice can help to harness that life force energy and channel one’s passion into the highest creativity.
While inhaling the sweet aroma of our Damiana Essential Oil, imagine sitting with the ancestors drinking a fresh cup of damiana tea, sipping something so sacred while feeling balanced, centered, energized and activated throughout your entire body. Take a moment to feel their gratitude for everything alive and arrive at the very breath of life and love in this very moment.
