Nature's Aphrodisiac


the aphrodisiac power of lavender

Lavender is one of the most deliciously abused scents in the aromatherapy world. But this precious purple flower’s allure blooms when used in a more subtle, culinary setting.
As a cooking flavor , the pretty aromatic allure it exudes can shine while its myriad of other magical properties take hold internally.

Modern science shows us that lavender is a perfect antidote for soft sausage. According to the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, the scent of lavender arouses men more than almost any other aroma in the world.
A lusciously aromatic herb, lavender makes a versatile flavoring in fresh flower, dried or infused states. Boil a pinch of dried lavender with equal parts water and sugar then mix in fresh lemon juice to make your very own love tonic, aka lavender lemonade. (It goes down brilliantly with an added shot of tequila). A dash of fresh lavender mixed into chicken salad takes good old comfort food to sexy new heights.
For the less culinary inclined, plant lavender around your house for not only its fragrance but for its folkloric belief to ward off evil spirits. Add a few fresh-cut sprigs to a wildflower bouquet, since the scent alone is enough to drive men wild. And for pretty much any woman who receives a surprise bouquet, well… that’s a given.
