10 interesting stories about spices that successfully increase sexual power
Spices are high on the list of the most effective aphrodisiacs (because they are rich in essential oils that increase circulation, relax and stimulate sexual desire). Cayenne pepper, ginger and many other spices (due to increased circulation) warm the body and encourage sweating. Blood vessels and capillaries widen and the sexual organs are supplied with blood, which results in a feeling of complete excitement.
- Anise (Pimpinella anisum) has a pleasant and fresh smell and taste. Dried anise seeds are most often used in cooking (as a spice for bread and cakes), for sauces, salads and dressings. Anise enhances the flavor of fruit drinks and jams. Anise is best chopped before use. No other spices should be added when using anise (because of the intense taste). Anise is difficult to combine with other spices. It works against flatulence, calms cramps and speeds up digestion. Anise is used to stimulate love in newly married men and to treat impotence in many countries of the Middle East.
- Basil (Ocimum basilicum) – this spice smells like a summer lunch in Italy and romance. Fresh basil is most effective, but dried basil can be added to many dishes. In ancient cuisines (and still in “voodoo” rites in Haiti) basil is associated with passion and fertility. In the ancestral homeland of Inidji, basil has a reputation as an aphrodisiac. Men of ancient tribes chewed fresh basil leaves. It was believed that blooming basil in the house means that a girl will come to the house. Namely, Hindus believed that blooming basil is similar to girls’ genitals, so they are somehow attracted to it.
- Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) – tea made from cinnamon sticks is recommended for pregnancy or problems with the monthly cycle. Dried cinnamon bark has always been used as a good aphrodisiac. Legend has it that the Queen of Sheba impressed King Solomon with her intelligence, wealth and fragrance. The queen anointed the body with cinnamon oil before arriving in Jerusalem to meet King Solomon.
- Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) – ginger is a relative of the beautiful gladiolus. In ancient times, ginger was considered a powerful aphrodisiac. The men drank ginger tea. Girls wore a garland of white ginger flowers for love success. Ginger arrived in ancient Rome from Egypt, where it was declared the “spice of love”. The fresh root is excellent for stimulating blood circulation (especially in the genital area). It is enough to smell fresh ginger to stimulate blood flow to the genital area and strengthen the sensitivity of the sexual organ. Madame du Barry’s cooks prepared a mixture of egg yolk and ginger (which encouraged the unbridled debauchery of lovers and courtesans). Legend has it that Madame du Barry seduced Louis XV with this voluptuous drink.
- Cayenne pepper (Capiscum frutescens) – spicy powder made from dry and ground red pepper (which is also the basis of chilli and tabasco). It is considered a sexual stimulant because it contains capsaicin (an active substance that increases heart rate, accelerates metabolism and causes sweating). Scientists believe that eating spicy food causes the release of endorphins (body chemicals that cause good feelings and excitement).
- Clove (Caryophyllus aromaticus) – this spice should be used with caution due to its aromaticity and spiciness. It should be removed from the dish before serving. It is used for desserts, meat and many exotic dishes from the East. In Asia and South America, a clove is placed on a sick tooth. It relieves pain and dulls the mind, although it does not cure toothache. Clove seeds have been considered the main driver of male sexual drive in Asia since ancient times. In Indonesia, even today, parents plant cloves next to the house if they have a male child.
- Mint (Mentha piperita) – fresh taste is popular in sweets and drinks and many dishes. William Shakespeare mentions mint, lavender and rosemary as stimulants for middle-aged gentlemen. The mythological story says that Persephone (queen of the underworld) turned the nymph Minta into a mint plant and planted her in the land out of jealousy (because her husband Hades found Minta an irresistible nymph). However, Hades still adored mint for its taste and smell. That is why mint has been considered an aphrodisiac since ancient times.
- Parsley (Petroselinum hortensis) – there are more than 30 edible types of parsley. Parsley is used with fish, meat, in salads, soups, stews and the like. Parsley refreshes the breath after onions and garlic. Parsley was also used by witches as an ingredient in magical flight potions. Some old texts say that witches prepared a balm for rubbing the body (primarily erogenous zones) from parsley. The purpose of the balm was to produce hallucinations. Other texts say that witches rubbed parsley on the phallic broom for night flights. Parsley and dill are used for tickling and other sensual caresses (instead of feathers that were used earlier and are no longer in use today).
- Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia) – vanilla is quite rightly considered a powerful and strong aphrodisiac. The scents of cinnamon, vanilla and lavender are associated with love and intoxicate men (research shows). These natural aphrodisiacs add more power to a person’s natural scent. Vanilla has a euphoric effect due to its sweet smell. It has a positive effect on the central nervous system when consumed. The smell of vanilla enhances sexual stimulation in women and men.
- Sage (Salvia officinalis) – sage is known as one of the best herbs for red meat (such as pork and game meat). Women in ancient Greece would welcome soldiers from the battlefield with sage tea. Sage tea would promote fertility and the maintenance of the Greek race (which was always in danger of extinction due to the mania for following heroes to war). Take 3 grams of dried and cut sage and put it in half a liter of boiled water. Drink after the drink has cooled.
