Damiana is a relatively small shrub that produces small, aromatic flowers. It blossoms in early to late summer and is followed by fruits that taste similar to figs. The shrub is said to have an strong spice like odor somewhat like chamomile, due to an oil present in the plant. The leaves have traditionally been made into a tea and an incense which was used by native people of Central and South America for its relaxing effects. Spanish missionaries first recorded that the Mexican Indians drank Damiana tea mixed with sugar for use as an aphrodisiac.
Damiana today is conventionally made into a tea. In herbal medicine, it is used to treat conditions ranging form coughs to constipation to depression. The herbal supplement is reputed to help with fibromyslgia, energy, emphysema, low estrogen, frigidity, hot flashes, impotency, infertility, menopause, parkinson's disease, PMS, inflammation of prostate, Lou Gehrig's disease, and more dealing with reproductive organs in both males and females.
