I want to begin our final stop on this herbal awakening train and start by telling you what this recipe does NOT do. It will not make love happen. Hahaha I mean seriously, it just does not work that way. Now… if you want to relax and enjoy the sensual escape that lies awaiting your company, then this is where we will be leaving today. On a great note right, I mean who doesn’t like love? Damiana. We’ve heard of this one already right?
Let’s run down a quick recap because damiana has a reputation for being an alternative to cannabis, sexually stimulating and reignites sexual energy (oh yea and it is legal). How could we not start the base for our love potion off without this herb? Wait, wait, wait... it’s bitter in taste though so we need a good mix of aromatic and floral masking herbs, but that also add benefit.
Here’s where peppermint leaf comes in along with orange blossom and jasmine blossom. Orange blossom already provides a soothing effect to sore throats and can be a cough suppressant. It also can act as a sedative to help you relax and relieve any headaches which will definitely get in the way of warm feelings of tranquility. Jasmine blossom is a royal herb that only makes this recipe come together given its history of uses from accompanying the royal garden of the Sung Dynasty to perfumes, lotions and body creams with powerful healing properties.

Used as an antidepressant as well as an aphrodisiac, it has been said to be so effective that, the bride and groom’s bedroom are decorated with it for their wedding night. Do you know the name of the naturally occurring hybrid of spearmint and watermint that is said to have come from history or Greek gods and biblical times? Yea, peppermint leaf has had purposes so sensual that allegedly the Greeks said it encouraged sexual behavior and prohibited its consumption by soldiers in order to maintain control. Intense right? With these 4 incredible herbs mixed into a love cocktail, it should bring you a calming yet stimulating experience that one could fall in love with over and over again.
Keep in mind that you can use a handheld vaporizer or a table-top vaporizer to vape any herbs listed in this article. Listen, all of this talk about vaporizers and what herbs we can and cannot vaporize can sometimes be a headache. However so can many other things like prescription medication, over-the-counter remedies and probably every person in your life suggesting what “works best’.
Vaporizing with herbal recipes can be your alternative to the fast action relief that doesn’t always have long term effects. ...and here is my disclaimer! Know that all of these recipes were tested by myself and a team of others that are not scientists, researchers or anything that would give you false ideals about these combinations being effective for every person in every scenario. Cross-examination of common benefits, flavors, and optimal temperatures were only a few deciding factors in this process. The type of device you use, organic vs non-organic and many other factors can alter the results.
You also have to keep in mind that when deciding between organic and non-organic it will always come down to whether or not you want to take the risk of being subjected to harmful pesticides, fungicides and chemical treatments that are hazardous health concerns. That being said, using any device that produces high heat leading to chemical change should always be performed with caution and the utmost research on best approaches. Lastly, please be advised if you are breastfeeding, currently pregnant, have relevant allergies or actively taking prescription medication to consult your physician prior to use. Vapor discretion advised. I hope after this article, the countless hours of research, product testing, and community contributions, we have given you insight into what I consider being the top 4 herbal recipes.
