Product Description

Botanical Name: Turnera diffusa

Plant Family: Passifloraceae

Botanical Description:
Damiana, scientifically known as Turnera diffusa, is a small aromatic shrub native to the subtropical regions of Central and South America, particularly Mexico and the Caribbean. It belongs to the Passifloraceae family, which also includes passionflowers. Damiana typically grows up to 2 meters in height and features small, narrow, lance-shaped leaves that are shiny and green on the upper surface and pale and hairy on the lower surface. The plant produces small, fragrant yellow flowers with five petals, which bloom in late spring to early summer and are followed by small, round fruits containing tiny seeds.

Introduction:
Damiana has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine, dating back to ancient times. It has been revered by indigenous peoples of Central and South America, including the Maya, Aztecs, and Guaycura. Damiana is known for its distinctive aromatic scent and has been valued for centuries for its potential health benefits and possible aphrodisiac properties.

Preparations:
Tea or Infusion: Prepare damiana leaf tea or infusion by steeping dried damiana leaves in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Strain the infusion and drink it as part of a balanced diet and lifestyle.
Tincture: Prepare a damiana tincture by macerating dried damiana leaves in alcohol (such as vodka or brandy) for several weeks. Strain the tincture and store it in a dark glass bottle. Take damiana tincture orally by diluting it in water or juice according to the dosage instructions provided on the product label or by a qualified herbalist.
Capsules or Tablets: Damiana supplements are available in capsule or tablet form for convenient consumption. Follow the dosage recommendations provided on the product label or consult with a healthcare practitioner for personalized guidance.
