Happy Hump Day Everyone!

You know it is just amazing how there are so many remedies needed during this time a year...stress, illness, sleep, worries and not last and definitely not least, your libido....

If you feel that your sex drive could use a boost, try adding some herbs to your cooking, throw in some wonderful intentions ( the intent to make wild passionate love!) and share a sensual, delicious meal with your lover.....


Herbal Remedies For A Low Libido

Your libido is connected to your feelings about yourself and your body. If you are comfortable with yourself and your health is good, your libido tends to be higher. If you are tired, unwell or lacking in self-confidence, your sensual urge tends to be lowered.

The publicity surrounding drugs that stimulate the sex drive in men reflects the concerns in today's society about what is the "right" level of the sex drive.

In fact, everyone is different. Energy and drive, attraction to others and level of comfort about sensual desires are individual to you. If you want to increase your sensuality, however, many herbs stimulate this in a natural manner.

Have fun experimenting and testing recipes out on your partner!

Some Reasons For Poor Sex Drive

A sudden loss of interest in sex can be an indicator of wither a physical health problem or of an emotional problem, such as depression.  When you are feeling "low", your body tries to compensate by directing energy to where it is most needed. Because the sex drive uses a lot of energy, it's often the first thing to be affected by these other factors.
If the situation continues for longer than a few weeks, it is advisable to see your doctor and check to ensure that you are in reasonable health and that there are no medical explanations for the way you are feeling.

You can also take a look at your life and feelings to identify the reasons. Good nutrition is always important, so ensure that you are eating the right foods and check that you haven't radically altered your diet recently, as lack of food or allergies may be the cause.

A positive body image is also important; if you fell negative about yourself, you will not feel confident with your partner.
