There are natural remedies to help curb sexual appetite. A group of herbs and essential oils called anti-aphrodisiacs will get the job done.
Anti-aphrodisiacs work in the limbic system of the brain causing chemical changes in the hormones which may help your partner decrease his addiction to sex. The essential oils can just be inhaled to produce their effects. It takes less than 30 seconds for the therapeutic properties of essential oils to take effect. What Is A Normal Sex Drive?
So, how do you get your partner to smell these scents? One of the easiest ways is to wear them. A little dab on your pulse points will be enough to trigger his limbic system to desire lesssex. Another way is to put a little essential oil on a cotton ball and put it under his pillow, or anywhere he likes to have sex.
Herbs, if taken on a regular basis, will reduce your partner’s sex drive as well. If you can get your partner to drink a tea, that is great, but it might be easier to have him take it in the pill form. The herbs take a little longer to work, but are well worth the wait. Here are five anti-aphrodisiac oils and herbs:
1. Camphor essential oil. Monks use this scent to keep them from desiring sex when they are trying to be chaste. One easy way to use this is to rub a “cold and flu” chest rub on you.
2. Marjoram essential oil. In some studies marjoram essential oil has been shown to decrease the libido in mice.
3. Chaste tree berries. These berries will reduce testosterone in men, whether taken in a tea or pill form. In the Middle Ages, European monks would drink a tea made with these berries to decrease their sexual desire. The downside is that chaste tree berries need to be taken for six weeks for their full effect to manifest.
Simply put, our libido is our sex drive. There are supplements on the market today that claim to increase libido in both males and females, but there are also supplements that can decrease sex drive. According to Dr. Beatrix Roemheld-Hamm of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, chasteberry has been used for years for the treatment of certain gynecological conditions and breast health issues. However, in men, it is said to decrease libido by decreasing prolactin levels when administered in small doses. In the days of old, chasteberry was used by clergymen who had taken an oath of celibacy, to keep sexual urges to a minimum. Dr. Roemheld-Hamm states that not enough clinical evidence is available to prove that chasteberry does or does not decrease libido, despite reports by patients that it does.
Hops and Valerian
Hops is bitter flavor but can aid in more than just intoxication. Hops can cause vaginal dryness in women. In men, hops makes it very difficult to maintain an erection. Valerian is used to calm the nervous system in the event of pain and aid in sleep. It also has been used to treat symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, but has been reported to lower libido in women. There is currently no scientific information to back this claim, but it has been reported by users of valerian that they have experienced decreased sex drive while using this herbal remedy.Rehmannia,
Ligistrum and Skullcap
Rehmannia is a Chinese herb that is used in people with extremely high libido. In the same family is ligistrum, which is also a libido suppresant. Both herbs work on the nervous system to make arousal more difficult for the patient. Skullcap also works on the nervous system, but it also lowers blood pressure, making erections difficult to obtain and maintain in men.
