Turnera Diffusa, also known as Damiana, is a tropical vine native to the American continent, and can be found in Mexico, Brazil, and many countries of Central America. Damiana is a popular herbal remedy that has been used for centuries by native tribes in Mexico. The supplement is most often used to support healthy male reproductive health, although it is also beneficial for women. Many popular uses of Damiana include easing pains associated with a stomach ache, kidney and bladder infections, scorpion stings, and diabetes. However, the most common use is as an aphrodisiac herb. Like many other plants and herbs, Damiana contains polyphenols and nutrients that can be co-factors for antioxidant enzymes. As such, it can be included in a health care plan to reduce atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risk. Damiana leaves contain several substances with benefits on hormonal balance, and can aid in sexual performance. Damiana is a well-known antidepressant, relaxant, and nervine. For those who suffer from anxiety, depression, or nervous exhaustion, Damiana can wrap you in her loving arms while strengthening and restoring your central nervous system.
Damiana makes a lovely addition to tea blends, and it is often blended with other flavourful herbs to lessen its potential for bitterness, especially if steeped for too long. It is also commonly used as a tincture, or can be powdered and encapsulated. It is even used in some traditional herbal smoking blends as a relaxant and euphoric, although using a high dose can act as a hallucinogen. Although Damiana is generally considered safe, please always do your due diligence when looking to incorporate a new herb into your diet to determine if there are any contraindications you should be aware of. It is best to consult with your medical doctor before using this herb.
Damiana corresponds to the planets of Venus and Jupiter, and the element of Fire. Damiana is a useful tea or smoke before ritual, especially where an altered state of consciousness is desired, and aids in meditation and divination. It is also a good addition to ritual incense.
