From the co-founder of one of the world's most respected herbal education websites: recipes, rituals, practices, and personal stories to help you live a more sexually fulfilled and vital life. Author Kimberly Gallagher.
Plants are the great healers of the earth, and their capacity to support healthy sexuality is just as powerful. This beautifully written and illustrated book brings you into a relationship with herbs for sexual fulfillment and empowerment.
Drawing on her own knowledge of herbalism and sacred sensuality, along with intimate stories from students who implemented her teachings, Kimberly Gallagher guides you on a personal journey of growth aided by the aphrodisiac properties and sensual uses of healing herbs and flowers such as damiana, cacao, and rose. Kimberly is an author and co-founder of LearningHerbs, a widely respected herbal education website.
In Aphrodisiac - The Herbal Path to Healthy Sexual Fulfillment and Vital Living, you'll find thoughtful, soulful rituals and dozens of recipes for putting the herbs to use, such as Autumn Blush Cordial, Rose Massage Oil, and Cardamom Chocolate Mousse Torte. You'll read user-friendly and well-researched monographs that teach you everything you need to know about every featured herb. And you'll find a wide range of practices for inviting erotic energy flow into your life - including creating an inviting environment, nourishing your body, and simply slowing down so there's time to savor pleasure.
When people are sensually alive and sexually fulfilled, they are more confident, creative, and joyful. They are also more likely to share their unique personal gifts with the world.
Aphrodisiac is an essential resource for anyone wishing to live a more vibrant life.

"While plants have been used to enliven our sensuality since time immemorial, the idea of 'aphrodisiacs' is too often presented as something spurious, or something coercive. In reality, a person's sexuality is as important to their wellness as their digestion. Kimberly Gallagher offers us a guidebook to the use of herbs known to connect us to the fullness of our lives' and bodies' sensual health."
- Jim McDonald, herbalist
