APHRODISIACS AND MOOD ELEVATORS
A compilation of aphrodisiac and mood-enhancing herbs, flowers, berries and barks known to awaken the heart. When alchemized, these plants awaken deep lucidity and euphoria in the mind and body, also gently nourishing emotional and sexual health.
Our Sacred Heart Kit contains:
Euphoria Elixir: A combination of some of our favorite’s Central and South American aphrodisiacs and mood elevators. Combines with the exquisite notes of gogi berries, hibiscus and shizandra berries. A delightful elixir to sip directly or combine into cocktails, mocktails, tea’s, food, and beyond.
Mucuna: Known for its ability to bolster libido, increase a general sense of well being (dopamine booster), a natural source of levodopa (L-dopa), supporting physical endurance, balance, and energy. Since ancient times it’s used as a total revitalizer and rejuvenator, having some adaptogenic components as it helps the body handle stress and the oxidative damages from stress.
Cacao: Cacao is one of the richest anti-oxidant sources found in nature, also known as one of the highest plant-based sources of iron. It has been extensively studied as a cardiotonic, touted for its cardio-protective properties, as well as increasing blood flow, lowering blood pressure. Within its love chemistry, we find two essential players that contribute to its touted aphrodisiac qualities, tryptophan, a building block of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal. The other, phenylethylamine, a stimulant related to amphetamine, is released in the brain when people fall in love. On a spiritual and energetic dimension, many cultures around the world considered it a “food of the gods”, as it’s been used ceremonially for centuries as a primary offering to the divine. Cacao has been associated to heal the energetic heart, providing liberation, and a deeper, authentic connection with oneself and others. Its feel-good chemistry is an excellent pairing allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life.
Palo Myst Protection Myst: Our myst is made from the oils of the bark and inner bark, becoming an exquisite myst to use to clear, protect and uplift the energy. Myst yourself (and others) when needed. Our Palo Santo is sourced from a small family in Northern Peru that ethically wildcrafts Palo Santo, who is also devoted to re-planting palo santo back in the wild.
Blue Lotus: A sacred flower recognized by the Egyptians, Mayans, and Aztecs as the flower that contains transformational essence. All three cultures believed that the essence of the Blue Lotus flower offered them access to the gods and to secret wisdom. The uplifting scent of this flower is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, containing floral and deep cacao notes.
Blue Lotus is a sacred flower that was used in ancient Egyptian rituals to boost libido and connect with the spirit world. Egyptians prized this rare flower and believed that it could unite soulmate spirits and also improve sexual stamina. I recommend incorporating blue lotus into your love or sexual rituals or placing it on or around your love, kundalini, or shamanic altar spaces.
There are quite a few ways you can enjoy these elixirs. The Euphoria is an easy add on to just about anything, alcohol-based cocktails, or alcohol-free based mocktails. It can also be gently sipped as needed throughout the day and night to keep the elevated mood just right. Combined with other heart and mood-boosting sources, like Mucuna, Cacao, and Blue lotus, you have quite a profoundly opening heart.
