Damiana (Turnera diffusa) - Medicinal Herbs

Damiana (Turnera diffusa, syn. Turnera aphrodisiaca) is a shrub native to Central and South America. It belongs to the family Turneraceae.

It has small yellow flowers,and an aroma, a little like chamomile, which is due to oil present in the plant. The leaves have traditionally been made into a tea which was used by native people of Central and South America for its reputed aphrodisiac effects.

In herbal circles Damiana is used to treat conditions ranging from coughs, to constipation & depression. The herbal supplement is reputed to help with Energy, Emphysema, low Oestrogen, Frigidity, Hot Flashes, Impotency, Infertility, Menopause, Parkinson's Disease, PMS, Inflammation of Prostate, Lou Gehrig's disease, and more dealing with reproductive organs in both males and females.

The following is of contextual interest only and in no way represents the opinions or approval of Luminescents.

The leaves of Damiana are sometimes smoked for relaxation and for its very mild psychoactive properties, described as somewhat similar to those of cannabis, if taken in much larger quantities. Yet the effects are a lot more mental than physical; movement is not severely impaired and thinking is not distorted to the same degree. The smoke is very harsh on the lungs. Often smoked while drinking Damiana in a tea form. The smoker feels relaxed and mildly stoned. It is not very effective when attempting to become "stoned" though. Damiana is sold in some brands of herbal cigarettes marketed as a tobacco-free smoking alternative. The herb lavender goes well with damiana when smoked.

Also, a traditional Mexican liqueur, sometimes used in margaritas is made from this herb. Some claim that damiana liqueur was used in the original margarita.
