Damiana Leaf Herbal Tea

Turnera diffusa

Tea

Damiana leaf herbal tea is considered testosteromimetic, mild laxative, nervous restorative, a tonic for

low libido, urinary and vaginal infections, menstrual problems, headaches, depression.

Do not take if pregnant. Use with caution if you have diabetes and hypoglycaemia.

Background

Damiana is a relatively small, woody shrub that grows in Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. It blossoms in early to late summer and is followed by fruits that taste similar to figs. Historically the leaf and stem where used as an aphrodisiac. It is useful for healthy people to tonify the hormonal system; helping our endochrine system functioning at its best.

Uses

Damiana leaf herbal tea can mimic the function of testosterone and can enhance enzymes related to the reproductive system, especially in the male; also a mild laxative and a nervous restorative. It has been used to treat low libido, especially with a strong psychological or emotional element; depression and debilitated states in both sexes; headaches; constipation and for the treatment of urinary and vaginal infections and menstrual problems. In combination with other tonic herbs it also makes a good tonic tea.

Combines well with:
Lemon balm, Horny goat weed, Ginkgo Leaf, Hawthorn leaf and flower tea

Combining tonic teas is great to prevent illness. I use the teas in my herbal power blend: Damiana, peppermint/chamomile (I don’t like the flavour of them combined), ginkgo, horny goat weed, tulsi, Vervain (the best), elderflower…

Precautions

Damiana has demonstrated mild hypoglycaemic effects in animals. Persons with diabetes and hypoglycaemia should use this plant with caution, as blood sugar levels should be monitored accordingly for this possible effect. Damiana has a traditional use as an abortive and should not be taken during pregnancy.
