    What are Aphrodisiacs?

    At some point in our lives we may experience low libido and an extra boost is required to keep the passion alive. For centuries people have made use of aphrodisiacs as libido enhancers to achieve greater sexual health and functioning.

    An aphrodisiac is a substance such as food, drink, drug, scent or device that can arouse or induce feelings of sexual desire. Aphrodisiacs are named after Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty. Aphrodisiacs have a powerful impact on the mind as they are thought to trigger the release of chemicals in the brain which then stimulate certain organs.

    Most aphrodisiacs enhance aspects of the sensory experience such as sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing - which in turn increases sexual drive or libido, improves performance and results in greater sexual satisfaction. Some foods are thought to have aphrodisiac properties.

    These include oysters, chocolate, chili, or alcohol. There are also a variety of plants and herbs which have been used for centuries in traditional medicine around the world in order to restore or enhance sexual pleasure.

    Even certain situations may play a part in sexual arousal. For instance, a candlelight dinner for two with romantic music and champagne is seen as an aphrodisiac and libido enhancer because it has all the stimulants necessary to promote sexual desire.

    Other aphrodisiacs include massage and foot massage. Full-body massages promote sexual desire by allowing full body contact, between two partners. Also, although it may seem like the last thing to stimulate the sexual senses, a foot massage actually enhances desires as well. The part of the brain that registers the sensations a foot massage gives, is the same part that arouses sexual organs.

    Intensifying sexual desire can also be done by using bath oils. Before enjoying a massage, try taking a hot bath with bath oils preferably using jasmine scent, which can be very sedating. Lastly, an underestimated aphrodisiac is fear. Though it may seem a bit strange, fear can spark sexual desire. Watching a scary movie or going to a haunted house is among a handful of fearful dates that can arouse both partners.

    Aphrodisiacs have even been hailed as being of great help in treating sexual dysfunction and increasing female and male libido. While aphrodisiacs may be considered by some as folklore and mythology, many claims have been made about their potential libido enhancing powers.

    A number of prescription drugs may enhance libido, sexual performance and organ sensation. These drugs include Viagra, Arginine and Prostaglandins. Androgens (male hormones) can be prescribed for men with low libido or poor performance.

    Women with low hormone levels, particularly during menopause, can try hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to improve libido. While these medications may increase sexual pleasure and performance, there are some negative side effects such as tremors, blurred vision, headaches and irregular heartbeats.

    Natural Herbs, Scents and Foods to Enhance Sexual Arousal

    There a wide variety of natural aphrodisiacs and they include:

    • Vegetables containing androstone, such as celery. Vegetables such as asparagus, carrots, cucumbers and artichoke are suggestive of sex due to their phallic shape
    • Fruit such as the banana, avocado, pomegranate, fig, papaya and peach
    • Nuts such as gingko nuts and pine nuts
    • Grains such as oats
    • Herbs such as basil, cloves, garlic, ginger, ginseng, aniseed, nutmeg and licorice
    • Spices such as cardamom, chili, pepper, and asafetida
    • Shellfish such as oysters, caviar and shrimp
    • Sensual scents such as vanilla, patchouli and musk

    Many herbs are natural aphrodisiacs and have been used for centuries as a way for increasing libido naturally and to promote sexual pleasure and arousal. These herbs are highly effective, safe to use, and nourishing for the body.

    For example, Smilax ornata (Sarsaparilla) is used as a tonic for male sexual potency and virility, while Eleutherococcus senticosis (Siberian Ginseng) is an overall system toner which improves performance and stamina. In addition, Sabal serrulata is a strengthening remedy which has a stimulatory effect on sexual functioning, as well as female health.

    It is common knowledge that certain scents arouse us more than others do, but what might not be common knowledge is that those scents aren’t necessarily coming from someone cologne or perfume bottle.

    Come to find out, body odor is a natural aphrodisiac that seems to lead into sexual arousal frequently. While most of us try to avoid having body odor, depending on the scent emitted, it can be one of the major aphrodisiacs for the senses.
