Natural libido enhancers are also known as aphrodisiacs. Aphrodisiacs can help to stimulate sex drive, feelings of love and attraction, and sexual performance. Some people rely on aromatic oils and natural fragrances for their stimulating effects. Many different herbs, spices, vitamins, and minerals can help to improve libido for men and women. A large list of food and beverages are considered to be aphrodisiacs as well.

Types of Natural Libido Enhancers

Aromatic aphrodisiac oils can be used to enhance sexual desire. These natural oils may be added to bath water, used as massage oil, or burned to produce an intense aroma. Aphrodisiac fragrances that are used externally may be applied to skin surfaces. However, they should not be applied directly to areas of broken skin, genitalia, near eyes, or in the mouth. Desirable options for aphrodisiac fragrances include sandlewood, rose, vanilla, jasmine, ylang ylang, tangerine, and amber.

Herbs and spices such as nutmeg, horny goat weed, ginko biloba, arginine, ginseng, fennel, saffron, and ginger can help to improve libido. Vitamins A, B, C, and E are also beneficial for sexual function. Zinc is a mineral that is effective for promoting testosterone production. Zinc is prevalent in oysters, which is part of the reason that oysters have been considered an aphrodisiac for many years.

Many foods and beverages are considered to be aphrodisiacs. Chocolate, oysters, and caviar have been recognized for countless years for their sexually stimulating effects. Today, we know that chocolate is only effective for stimulating libido in women and the zinc in oysters is more effective for men. We also now know that champagne is not actually an aphrodisiac because alcohol is a depressant. Other foods that have aphrodisiac properties include celery, avocados, asparagus, bananas, caviar, grapes, and almonds.
