The essential oil of Damiana (Turnera Diffusa) is derived from the flower and leaf of Damiana native to Mexico. It is then obtained by steam distillation. Its fragrance is singular in every way. Fresh and aromatic, it is somewhere between ripe fruit and mate. A note as interesting as powerful that we advise to feel with delicacy by using a support such as a wick.

Damiana is also known for its aphrodisiac virtues, and without discrimination of sex please ! Indispensable for the female balance while stimulating the libido, it promotes erection in men. An essential oil to be kept under the comforter.



The olfactory note of Damiana is singular but fascinating by its contrasting airs. Fresh and aromatic at first, it also suggests the skin of a ripe but crunchy fruit, before inviting the nose towards woody depths evoking mate. Its delicate use makes it all the more interesting in the right blend!
