CARAMEL SLICE FOR LOVERS
Getting emails from customers is always nice.
Getting emails from customers saying that they have been drinking your potion and now they think they are enjoying sex more is next level nice.
That actually happened last week and I am pretty damn happy about it . You see, when I put together my potions, I think long and hard about the intention for the potion and the plant magic that I want to use. I think about the energies of the plants, their traditional usage and then I wrap them up in a powdery bouquet. Hoping that the combined energies in the potion will resonate with the people that feel drawn to taking them and produce an effect. Even though I have these intentions and the traditions and energetics of the herbs suggest a certain effect, it is always a very pleasant surprise when someone says "Hey that potion makes me feel great"
So anyway this review was from a lovely customer who really felt as though our Lovers Potion had made a positive influence in her enjoyment of sex. If that is not winning, then I don't know what is. In light of this , I thought I would give a breakdown on the herbs in our Lovers Potion and throw together a caramel slice pimped with the benefits of these beautiful herbs.
SHATAVARI - In the asparagus family, this beautiful herb is a mucilaginous herb which is cooling and moistening making it perfect for the hot flushes and vaginal dryness of those entering perimenopause. It also energizes the vital force and is though to be an adaptogen, getting the body back into balance especially during periods of hormonal stress. This herb is a firm favourite of many herbalists and it is not hard to see why.
DAMIANA - Full of volatile oils, damiana is a perfect example of a magickal herb which is at once relaxing to a mind which is overwrought, grumpy or anxious or down and stimulating to the senses of the brain and body .Traditionally it was prepared as a sweet tea by the Mayans and Aztecs to stimulate lovemaking and is featured in mystical folklore for its spiritual, feminine powers.
MACA - Used throughout generations by the Incans, according to traditions, maca is an aphrodisiac and enhances sexual drive. From an energetic perspective, maca is sweet and nourishing and like shatavari also has moistening qualities. Maca is also thought to be an adaptogen with an affinity for hormonal balance and physical endurance. We only use Seleno Health Maca in our Lovers Potion as it is fair trade, gelatinized and the best quality you can get!
CINNAMON Cinnamon is warm and stimulating, so it tends to warm up the interior and get the energies and fluids moving in the body. It also has a sweet and astringent energy to it so it nourishes and tones the tissues as well.
CAYENNE - While cinnamon is warm, cayenne is hot and really does a great job at helping to disperse energy and the other herbal energies in the potion to the periphery.
