RIO AMAZON Damiana leaves are used to make a distinctive and fragrant tea. Damiana is a small shrub with aromatic leaves that thrives in hot and humid climates and is native to Mexico, Central and South America and the West Indies.
Damiana was used as an aphrodisiac by the ancient Mayans, and for over a century it has been used by the modern populations of both Central and South America as a way of strengthening the body.
The volatile oils are probably part of the reason that this tea is also used as a loving cup and the content of sitosterol may also account for this.
