Damiana has been used in Mexico, Central America, and South America since the times of the ancient Aztec, and remains quite popular today. Although its noted effect on sexual desire has been its primary traditional use across cultures, it has also been valued as a relaxant, digestive stimulant, mood enhancer, or just an enjoyable beverage that was often given to children. In modern times it has also been used as an herbal smoke and a liqueur.
USES AND PREPARATIONS
Dried damiana leaf can be brewed into a tea, made into a tincture, used in herbal smoking blends, or powdered and encapsulated. A fresh plant tincture of aerial portions may be made as well. Damiana leaves are often infused in alcohol to make liqueurs or cordials.
