What is Damiana?

Damiana, or Turnera diffusa, is a small woody shrub that is native to Texas, Mexico, Central and South America.  It thrives in hot, humid climates and is both wildcrafted and cultivated.

The use of damiana leaf as a medicinal herb dates back to the ancient Maya, Aztecs and Guaycura who lived in modern-day Mexico. Its primary traditional use has been as an aphrodisiac, but it has also been valued as a relaxant and dream enhancer. 

Today, damiana is consumed as an herbal smoke, tea, tincture and liqueur. Damiana is considered an adaptogenic herb because it exerts a normalizing effect upon body functions and helps the body adapt to stress.
