Looking for natural ways to give your sex life a bit of a boost? Discover the best herbal teas for the libido in our latest blog post.
Spring is here and the natural world around us is full of signs of new life. But if your own sex drive is still stuck in winter mode, we have some good news for you.
Herbal teas may be best known for helping us relax and feel calm. But certain herbs can also help to boost the libido, aid sexual performance, and increase your stamina. So, if you feel like it’s time to up your game in the bedroom, these herbs might be just what you need.
Don’t forget to consider your lifestyle too. Stress, too much alcohol, and low self-esteem can all get in the way of a healthy and enjoyable sex life, so making changes to address these factors can also make a big difference.
While you make those lifestyle changes, here are the herbal teas that are worth sipping on if you want to give your sex drive a new lease of life this spring.
A popular herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginseng has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide range of different health conditions. The root is typically used for herbal medicine and is said to have the most benefits.
There are two main types of ginseng: American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). Both contain active compounds that benefit our health, but it is Asian ginseng that has been studied most for its ability to aid sexual performance.
Ginseng may be especially beneficial for men. It helps to increase blood flow to the penis and protects against oxidative stress. Various studies have reported that taking ginseng results in better erectile function and overall sexual satisfaction.
However, it isn’t only men who might benefit from drinking ginseng tea. It can also boost women’s libido, increasing arousal, desire, and satisfaction.
There’s also evidence that ginseng can increase our energy levels and help to fight off tiredness and fatigue. In the bedroom, this boost of energy may translate to better stamina.
Native to Peru, maca is another root that helps to boost our sex drives and wake up our libidos. Sometimes called Peruvian ginseng, maca has been used by the indigenous people of the Andes for thousands of years.
Maca has become increasingly popular in the West because of its potential as a natural aphrodisiac. People who take it regularly report an increase in sexual desire. This effect seems to work for both men and women.
As well as boosting the libido, maca has some other benefits in the bedroom. In men, it can help to increase sperm concentration and motility, which might lead to better fertility.
Meanwhile, maca may also help to lift the mood and increase our energy levels, both of which can mean more enjoyment of sex.
3. Muira Puama
Nicknamed ‘the Viagra of the Amazon’, muira puama is another popular herbal remedy for a low libido. It is traditionally used to increase sexual desire and performance, improve erectile function, and stimulate the body.
Like ginseng, muira puama may be especially beneficial for men, as it helps to increase blood flow to the penis, making it easier to get and maintain an erection. Men with erectile dysfunction who took a herbal remedy containing muira puama reported an improvement within a month.
Women may also benefit from sipping on a herbal tea that contains muira puama. Taking this herb has been linked with an increase in sexual desire and ability to reach orgasm in women with low sex drive.
Traditionally, muira puama is also known as an energiser. Like other herbs on this list, it might help to boost your energy levels and give you the stamina you need to enjoy a full and active sex life.
A favourite herb in Ayurveda, the traditional healing system that originated in India, ashwagandha has become hugely popular in the West in recent years. As an adaptogen, it helps our bodies cope with stress, which can result in more interest and enjoyment in sex.
Ashwagandha also increases testosterone levels in men, leading to increased libido and better fertility. In women, testosterone levels remain stable, but ashwagandha is linked with increased sexual desire, arousal, and ability to orgasm.
Although ashwagandha is known for its relaxing qualities, it also helps to boost our energy levels and stamina, giving us that extra something in the bedroom.
