I'm a big fan of the herb damiana. It is a wonderful aphrodisiac and I have also used
it to overcome fertility issues. Here is a recipe I am going to try in the next few weeks!!!
This is delicious and was one of the first things I tried upon delving into the
world of herbal medicine! Boy did it get my attention! Anyway I have been dying to make
some since then and that was sadly 15 years ago and I have been hanging on to the recipe
for a long while needless to say! So I have decided my man (who is studying herbs)
and I will make some in the very near future. Well as soon as I get all the ingredients gathered.
Damiana liqueur has been used for centuries in Mexico and also by ancient
civilizations such as the Mayans. It can be used as a tincture or infusion.
1 fifth brandy
4 oz damiana
2 oz lemon grass
4 oz cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground nutmegs
1 c. honey
1 oz marijuana tincture (optional but recommended- I will post the directions
for this specifically sometime this coming week!)
large wide mouth mason jar w/ a lid
Place the herbs in the wide mouth jar. Cover with the brandy and screw on the lid.
Let this sit for 4-6 weeks.
Strain through cheesecloth and sweeten with honey.
