What are aphrodisiacs? They are substances that enhance sexual desire. Did you know that spices make the best aphrodisiacs? The list of commonly known aphrodisiac spices includes: saffron, ginger, cardamom, vanilla, red pepper, anise, nutmeg, and cloves.

Spices have always been held in high esteem throughout history. At one point spices were even used as currency. In the Middle Ages, it was possible to buy a sheep for a handful nutmeg. In fact, nutmeg once fueled a war that gained Long Island for England.

Eastern culture has always been associated with refined and sensual love. In many eastern families, there is usually many children. Perhaps the blame lies with traditions of cooking spices? In any case, as I walk in the markets and catch traders in the "spicy ranks" with a twinkle in their eyes. Perhaps it is no accident, those mysterious and confident smiles they always offer to shoppers ...

The magical effect of herbs is based on the fact that they improve blood circulation, which allow a higher sensitivity and indeed lowered inhibitions. All the more reason to know your spices:

Basil is used in love magic rituals in both Europe and Africa.
Cardamom awakens sensuality and passion.
Vanilla causes euphoria and creates erotic fantasies.
Ginger and cloves assist in restoring sexual strength.
Dried leaves of chervil added to dishes to win over a lover.
Nutmeg is uplifting and, as a medieval doctor once wrote, "opens people's hearts."
Thyme, cumin, dill, fennel, and pepper are stimulants.
Savory herbs cause happiness, because it prolongs the duration of erotic pleasures.
Saffron increases the sensitivity of the erogenous zones.
Spices are versatile. Not only can you add them to food, but they are heated and transformed into essential oils, candles, and even bath balls. Extracts of herbs are often included in perfumes, ointments, creams and serums that can make us younger and more beautiful.

Now I will share an ancient recipe: "Within three months, to alcohol add 10 grams of coriander, celery, angelica, fennel and green anise each. Strain and enjoy!" They say that this recipe will help keep a lover even "on the brink of the grave."
