Masked in mystery and steeped in legend, love potions have been known throughout human history for centuries.
But in recent times, just as many remedies have been refuted and tossed aside, we’ve learned that there is merit to some.
It turns out that there are scents that can work wonders upon the human mind and body when it comes to getting passionate, and certain herbs can aid things like blood flow, therefore helping in sexual arousal.
Sadly, with our busy and stressful lives, it can be more than difficult to engage in passionate activities, but keeping up a healthy sex life should always be a priority.
It can not only improve our relationship and lift our mood, it’s been shown to reduce blood pressure, boost immunity, improve heart health, and lead you to a longer life.
So, any time an individual you find him/herself lacking in the passion department, he/she should brew up this “love potion” and get ready for a merry time.
Required Ingredients and Benefits
Jasmine is distinct, sweet, and its fragrance induces euphoria in both men and women and has been used to spark a passion for, quite literally, centuries.
The sensual smell of the rose can reduce arousal blocking anxiety, which can spike when it comes to sex.
Vanilla’s warm scent (and taste) is welcoming, subtly sensual, and relaxing. We all know that relaxation is a must when it comes to truly enjoying sex.
The cinnamon produces a fine balance with the more soothing scents of rose, jasmine, and vanilla.
While those aids relax you, the cinnamon ensures that you still get a burst of fiery passion and energy.
If you indulge in cinnamon regularly, it can heighten sexual drive over time.
It works so well because it can lessen high blood sugar, which restricts blood flow down south for both men and women.
You will need:
- 2 teaspoons of dried jasmine flowers,
- 1 tablespoon of dried rose petals.
- Vanilla pod split, or ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract,
- 1-2 cinnamon sticks,
- a cup of fresh water,
- a pot or saucepan and
- a strainer
Pour a cup of fresh water into a saucepan. (You can add more or less, with the former resulting in a stronger ‘potion’ and the latter a weaker tasting one.)
Add 2 teaspoons of dried jasmine flowers, 1 tablespoon of dried rose petals, a vanilla pod split lengthwise or ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1-2 cinnamon sticks to the water.
Give the blend a little stir to incorporate everything, and then simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and immediately strain. Allow this to cool and then bottle it with a fitting lid.
Add sparkling water and serve iced on a hot day, or pour into mugs and reheat, sipping slowly.
You can also use it fresh. In the fridge, it will last for a week in a tightly lidded container.
Passion, as they say, makes the world go round, but even the best of lovers can find themselves wanting something to kindle a night of fiery romance.
If you find yourself a little bit stuck, the arousing sensual smells and the little kick of cinnamon spice in this love potion will have the passion brewing in no time.
