Damiana Bitters, Aphrodisiac
Spotted in a little nook of a historic mansion, this bottle totes Damiana as an aphrodisiac. And indeed, Damiana (Turnera diffusa) has been used as an aphrodisiac by the Mayan's. Grown on sunny hillsides in dry areas, (TX, Mexico and Central America) this herb relaxes mild anxiety and nervousness, which could have aphrodisiac effects.
Drunk as a tea, as warm as you can, it will increase tingling, oxygen levels in the genitals and is known to increase desires! It is a pungent flavor but not quite as bitter as this old bottle would indicate.
