Reverse Power of Sweat, Love Potion2


Yes, here’s another one of the love potion series, so for everyone interested please take note.

Actually, this one does not resemble anything close to a love potion in its literal sense. However it is possible to make a connection since, conceptually, its mere purpose entails or connotes the same idea on which love potion is founded.

This belief can be categorized more as a love spell or witchcraft since it does not involve mixing or concocting any form of substance for ingestion.

Last time, I mentioned the power of things that come from you to work for or against you. It was the power of one’s sweat, to be specific, working for his/her heart’s desire that was given close attention. This time though, it’s the reverse. When someone who’s really crazy for you takes your shirt or anything you wore or constantly use (anything that is constantly in contact with your body), they can use that particular thing to dominate your character or, worst, control you.

The secret to it is keeping the worn or used item with its user’s scent in it without washing it. According to old folks knowledgeable in such beliefs, with this technique of keeping worn or used items, it will be hard for the person who used the item to remove you from his/her thoughts and, eventually, find you unforgettable.
To do this, one is required to acquire an item used by the object of his/her desire. The item should be something just recently worn or used, preferably clothing (as to how they will get this worn clothing, again, it’s entirely up to the one who wishes to do it).

Once the item is finally at hand, it should not be washed to keep part of the essence of the one who wore it in it.

It may smell awkward due to its user’s B.O. (body odor) hanging on it but that’s part of the ordeal one needs to undergo in order to reap the fruit of the effort given.

The item should be placed under the pillow used when sleeping. Once the wielder of the item goes to sleep with it under his/her head, it is there that the love spell takes effect.

Basically, when one sleeps, since his/her head lies over the enchanted item (enchanted because, in the process, it is visualized or projected to perform an enchanting ability, thus given the attribute of being enchanted), it signifies a sort of connection in the spiritual level.

Through this, it is said the person who used the item will always dream of the one who kept it. Also, through this connection, if one is capable of manipulating his/her dream, the keeper can extend the effect of the spell even further into controlling the emotion or the feelings of the owner of the item towards him/her.

By constantly doing this, theoretically, the man or woman of your dreams will be deceived into thinking that the two of you are meant for each other (soul mates) since you are frequently in his or her dreams.

Based on some stories circulating about this practice, there are several who do this with Latin prayers before getting to sleep. It is said that the prayers enhance the effectiveness of the love spell.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide you with the prayers since I don’t know any.

About the item that should be placed underneath the pillow, anything will do as long as it is directly used by the one you’re planning to use the spell on, but they say the most potent ones are usually the clothes they wore.

 True or not, effective or useless, I would say this is not to be taken as a full proof action to make someone fall for you since it might lead to dreadful repercussions.

Yes, you might be able to end up having someone’s heart but the very idea of it as an ill-gotten gain will, definitely, only result into an ill-ended faith both for you and your victim. Like the goblin saying goes; “Grow food in dirt? Save time, eat dirt.”


Sweat Potion, Love Potion01

Here in the Philippines, there's a belief that anything that comes from you can be used in favor or against you, in its mystical sense (something like vodoo): a piece of hair, the shirt you last wore, even your photos.

Even how scary a thought it is, these beliefs can be used to our advantage, especially when trying to get something we badly covet or, perhaps, need. In terms of the desire to own or control a person to whom you're deeply inlove with, love potion or "gayuma" becomes a key

 Like what I've said, anything that comes from you is a potent mystical stuff which can either work for or against you. Your sweat comes from you, it is the love juice that oozes out from you everytime your body exert force. The love potion I'm about to share with you has one and only ingredient, sweat, and it's pretty easy to prepare.

First, you need to sweat considerably. Try doing things that will make you sweat prior to a dinner date, anytime before the date will do. You can jog, do your house chores, or perhaps take a sauna. When you're all pumped up with sweat, of course the next thing to do is collect your sweat.

Find a nice clean face towel or handkerchief to wipe off your sweat. Yes, wipe them all off until the cloth is really wet.

According to some, the most potent sweat would be those coming from your inner thighs and crotch. I would suggest wiping on that area too for the potion to be more effective.

Later, bring your sweat filled hanky or face towel. It doesn't matter if it dries up, as long as the stinky sour odour of your bodily juices remains there, you're good to go.  

Before dining, find a way to place your sweat into the liquid your partner will drink. Soaking the sweat-filled piece of cloth into the drink will do. Of course, don't leave the piece of cloth in the liquid that would be stupid. Your only goal is to make your sweat mix-in with the liquid.

Don't worry about the odd taste it will be producing, it doesn't taste a thing. 

How you'll be doing it is entirely yours (you can wait till your partner goes into the bathroom). And the moment he/she drinks it, well... you can tell me later what happens.

Old folks say its really effective, giving you the ability to be more dominant in your relationship. 
Some say the effect isn't instantaneous. You'll have to wait some more days before it triggers its full power. 

I've also heard several stories of men who doesn't really fit the word "handsome," "responsible," or a "husband material" but they are able to marry a beautiful wife. When asked how he was able to pull their relationship through, his answer would be using this sort of thing.

I can't say its really effective, I guess it all depends on how people translate their observations of their date partners after they do this stuff. So, are you willing to give it a try?

Bananas as Aphrodisiac

banana aphrodisiac

Banana is the common name for herbaceous plants of the genus Musa, and is also the name given to the fruit of these plants. They are native to the tropical region of Southeast Asia, the Malay Archipelago, and Australia. Today, they are cultivated throughout the Tropics.

Containing three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose - combined with fiber; a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.

It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions making it a must to add to your daily diet (anemia, blood pressure, constipation, depression, mood swings, high body temperature, hang-over, heart burn, stress, hypertension, ulcers, warts, and mosquito bites).

Banana is a natural remedy to many ills. In fact, bananas have an exciting nutritional story. They are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. One banana has 16% of the fiber, 15% of the vitamin C, and 11% of the potassium we need every day for good health! When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It also contains chelating minerals and the bromelain enzyme, said to enhance the male libido—maybe that’s why Central Americans drink the sap of the red banana as an aphrodisiac, while Hindus regard it as a symbol of fertility.

This shapely suggestive and nutritious fruit is really loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals that can surely boost your sensuality and energy in bed. Eating bananas, therefore, will make your “banana” tougher and healthier.

Cayenne Pepper, an Aphrodisiac

chili cayenne pepper aphrodisiac
Cayenne pepper  aka Chili pepper is a hot red pepper used to flavor dishes; its name comes from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana. Its powdered form comes from the fruit of several cultivated varieties of the Capsicum baccatum and Capsicum frutescens very closely related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and others. All are related species of the nightshade family (Solanaceae).

Cayenne pepper is a hot red pepper used to flavor dishes; its name comes from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana. Its powdered form comes from the fruit of several cultivated varieties of the Capsicum baccatum and Capsicum frutescens very closely related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and others. All are related species of the nightshade family (Solanaceae).

Cayenne is used in cooking spicy hot dishes, as a powder or in its whole form (such as in Szechuan cuisine). It is generally rated at 40,000 to 90,000 Scoville Units.

There are numerous studies going on for the medicinal applications of Cayenne pepper since there are a lot of therapeutic actions associated with it such as: aphrodisiac, diaphoretic, expectorant, neural stimulant, rubefacient, synergist vasomotor stimulant, topical vasodilator, etc.
Due to this, the hot fruit of cayenne has been used as medicine for centuries. It was considered helpful for various conditions:
  • Gastrointestinal tract: including stomachaches, cramping pains, and gas.
  • Diseases of the Circulatory System. It is still traditionally used in herbal medicine as a circulatory tonic (a substance believed to improve circulation).
  • Rheumatic and arthritic pains: Rubbed on the skin it causes, what is termed as, a counterirritant effect. A counterirritant is something which causes irritation to the area that it is applied. This makes it distract the nerves from the original irritation (such as joint pain in the case of arthritis).

Because of its spiciness, eating it sets your mouth on fire, makes your face look flushed, and causes your heart to race—all the sensations you feel after a passionate kiss or maybe even a quickie. It contains a high amount of vitamin C, plus it is an exciting agent that stimulates the circulation. Hence, it serves as a stimulant that heats the sexual drive.

Personally, I believe it’s possible to an increase in your sexual drive after, perhaps, ingesting a few dosage of it since it heats up your bodily system, especially your mouth and face, which greatly improves your blood circulation causing your erogenous zones to be more sensitive to any form of stimulation. Of course, too much of it will cause problems depending on your tolerance level for hot and spicy foods. If you can’t handle the fiery sensation it creates in your mouth after an utterly stupid decision to eat more than what is necessary, you’ll be craving for more liquid to quench that fire in your tongue more than you having a nice hanky-panky with your partner.


Honey as Aphrodisiac

honey aphrodisiac

Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers. It is significantly sweeter than table sugar and has attractive chemical properties for baking. In many cultures, honey has associations that go far beyond its use as a food. In language and literature, religion and folk belief, honey is frequently a symbol or talisman for sweetness of every kind including its being considered as an aphrodisiac.

Loosely called “the nectar of Aphrodite”, honey is one of the most seductive foods in the world. Sticky, viscous, deliciously sweet, honey is as much a sensual experience as it is a delicious indulgence .

Historically, many medicines in Egyptian times were based on honey including cures for sterility and impotence. Also, medieval seducers plied their partners with Mead, a fermented drink made from honey. Lovers on their "Honeymoon" drank mead and it was thought to "sweeten" the marriage.

Raw honey also contains enzymes that help in its digestion, several vitamins and antioxidants; the reason, perhaps, why it is considered to have an aphrodisiac effect.

Honey has also been known to have medical properties. For around 2000 years, honey has been used to treat a variety of ailments through topical application, though it was not until modern times that the cause of infection was understood. Now, has shown that the folk remedy of using honey to treat wounds has a scientific explanation: it acts as an antiseptic/antibacterial agent. As an antimicrobial agent honey has potential for treating a variety of ailments. Antibacterial properties of honey are the result of the low water activity causing osmosis, hydrogen peroxide effect, and high acidity.

Avocado as Aphrodisiac

avocado aphrodisiac

Avocado (Persea americana) is a tree and the fruit of that tree, classified in the flowering plant family Lauraceae. It is native to Central America and Mexico. The fruit is sometimes called an avocado pear or alligator pear, due to its shape and rough green skin. The avocado tree does not tolerate freezing temperatures, and so can be grown only in subtropical and tropical climates.

A year-round fruit, avocados are delicious hot or cold, in soups, salads, stir-fries and as a healthier alternative to butter, sour cream and other dips and spreads. Avocados are cholesterol-free, sodium-free, low in saturated fat, and a good source of monounsaturated fat, which studies show may help in the prevention of heart disease.

Legend has it that the first avocado was eaten in Mexico by a Mayan princess around 291 B.C. It is believed that the Aztecs used the avocado as a sexual stimulant. Later, early Americans called the avocado an “alligator pear” to describe the fruit's texture, another possible explanation for its reputation as an aphrodisiac.

Some experts tend to agree and knew cases in which a person's love life improved after eating the dark green fruit called avocado. They believe it could be the nutrients and recently discovered phytochemicals within the avocado that explain the fruit's reputation as a strong aphrodisiac.

Ounce per ounce, an avocado contains the highest fiber content and more folate per ounce than other fruits. It's also nutrient dense in vitamins B6, C and E. Also, its phytochemical profile includes cholesterol-lowering beta-sitosterol and the antioxidant glutathione. These favorable phytochemicals can, perhaps, work in combination with the nutrients in other foods to enhance heightened feelings of love and romance.

Today, avocados are used in more than 100 “special lover’s recipes” to enhance love, sex, and romance. There’s no specific ways of preparing the fruit for a better aphrodisiac effect; just mix it in and voila. Are you thinking of buying avocados already? Here are some tips you must know before you do.

  • Buy hard, unripened avocados if it will be a few days before you serve them. To ripen, place fruit in a plain brown paper bag and store at room temperature until ready to eat (usually two to five days). Putting an apple or banana in the bag will hasten the ripening process.
  • Ripe avocados can be refrigerated until eaten, but don't expect them to last more than two to three days. Whole or sliced avocados don't freeze well, but pureed avocados can be frozen for later use in salads, sandwiches, dips.
  • To store cut avocados, sprinkle fruit with lemon or lime juice or white vinegar and place in an air-tight covered container in the refrigerator. Eat within a day or two. If refrigerated guacamole turns brown during storage, discard the brown top layer.
  • To peel an avocado, cut lengthwise around seed, and then rotate halves to separate. Remove the seed by sliding the tip of a spoon gently underneath and lifting it out. Peel fruit by placing the cut side down and removing the skin with a knife or your fingers, starting at the small end. You also can scoop out the meat with a spoon.



Pine Nuts as Aphrodisiac

1 comment

Latin Name:
Pinus edulis. Other Pinus species also

Other Names: Piñon, pinyon

Many nuts are rich in zinc, a lack of which is said to cause impotence and infertility in men. Pine nuts especially have been used throughout the Mediterranean and the East for centuries to make up love potions.

The Roman poet Ovid (a vegetarian) in his work 'The Art of Love' selected 'the nuts that the sharp-leafed pine brings forth' as an effective and powerful aphrodisiac.

The Perfumed Garden, (an ancient Arabic love manual), contains many references to pine nuts including this prescription to restore a man's sexual vigor by Galen in 200 AD: "A glass of thick honey, plus 20 almonds and 100 pine nuts repeated for three nights."

Nuts have also been found to be an effective brain food, due to a substance called boron that increases electrical activity in the brain.

"Pine nuts first got their aphrodisiac reputation from the effort required to get them. They're nestled in the cones of the pine tree, and the best were said to come from the Himalayas," says Martha Hopkins, author of InterCourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook.

Like most nuts, they also offer protective cardiovascular benefits and are especially good sources of thiamin, iron, magnesium, and manganese, explains Mittler. Zinc also helps the immune system and promotes wound healing.

Another curiosity: the pine nut with most aphrodisiac power is the type that comes from the PINUS GERARDIANA, a pine tree who grows only in the NW side of the Himalaya Mountains at a height between 2000 and 4000 meters.

Fig (fruit) is an aphrodisiac

fig aphrodisiac

Figs are good source of flavonoids and polyphenols. Figs and other dried fruit were measured for their antioxidant content. A 40 gram portion of dried figs (two medium size figs) produced significant increase in plasma antioxidant capacity. Figs also have higher quantities of fiber than any other dried or fresh fruit. This plant has featured in many books in which they are believed to have healing powers; whether this extends beyond fiction is debatable.

Due to this, it has also been associated with aphrodisiacs. This erotic, fleshy fruit is said to act as a powerful sexual stimulant. Originally from Syria, it is one of the oldest known plants. Ritual copulation followed the arrival of the new fig crop in Ancient Greece and it is said to have been Cleopatra's favorite fruit. For the ancient Greeks the fig was one of the sacred foods associated with fertility and love. In some Southern European countries wedding guests throw figs (instead of rice) at the newly weds, as a sign of fertility.

Legend has it that eating a fresh fig while naked in front of a woman is one of the world's most erotic acts. Because when its split down the center and cradled by a palm, the fig's pink flesh is said to resemble a woman's sweet unmentionables.

The luscious fruit's womanly wiles were immortalized in the words of one of literature's dirtiest birds, author D. H. Lawrence, who dedicated a poem entitled “Figs” to its sensuality.

Some historians suspect that the fig's original home was the Garden of Eden, and that the fig was the original temptress, the true forbidden fruit.


Arugula as an aphrodisiac

Leave a Comment
arugula aphrodisiac

Arugula, also known as rocket, garden rocket, rocket salad, rugola, rucola and roquette, is a type of leaf vegetable, which looks like a longer leaved and open lettuce. Rocket is an herbaceous annual or perennial; a member of the mustard family (Brassicaceae = Cruciferae). It is aromatic and rich in vitamins A, C, and iron. The term arugula (variations of Italian dialects around “arigola”) is the term often used by the Italian diaspora in Australia and North America; both words arugula and rocket ultimately come from the Latin word stem roc and eruca which means “harsh,” in reference to its bitter flavor especially when collected from the wild.

Arugula is generally used in salads but also cooked as a vegetable with pastas or meats and in coastal Slovenia (especially Koper), it is added in the “squeaky cheese burek.” In Italy, it is often used in pizzas, added just before the baking period ends or immediately afterwards, so that it can wilt in the heat. It is sometimes used as an ingredient in “pesto,” either in addition to [basil] or as a (non-traditional) substitute. A dish in Veneto consists of shredded, cured horsemeat on a bed of arugula dressed with olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

Arugula has been grown as a vegetable in the Mediterranean area since Roman times, and was considered and documented as an aphrodisiac since the first century A.D. It was grown for both its leaves and the seed. The seed was used for flavoring oils. On another interesting note, the seed has also been used back in the Roman times as an ingredient in aphrodisiac concoctions. It was added to grated orchid bulbs and parsnips and also combined with pine nuts and pistachios back then. Its leaves were also used along with romaine, chicory, mallow, and lavender and seasoned with a "cheese sauce for lettuce" to form a typical Roman aphrodisiac salad.

The ancient Romans considered arugula a potent aphrodisiac because it was consecrated to Priapus. Unmistakable by virtue of his exaggerated phallus, Priapus was one of Rome’s minor fertility gods and also the protector of gardens and domestic animals. He inspired many epigrammatic poems, which were essentially graffiti clothed in the refined forms of classical poetry. Modern herbalists go light on the aphrodisiac qualities and generally recommend arugula as an aid to digestion though.

Arugula’s complex flavors (spicy and earthy) explode in your mouth. That explosive quality was another reason, besides the etymology, why arugula is also known as “salad rocket.” There are some people who believe that eating its seeds (leaves also) does something to your brain which enlivens it. That, perhaps, and its spicy “rocket like” effect to the palette made the Romans believe that it’s an aphrodisiac.

And finally, a word of caution: eating this might lead to a night of sizzling and sensuous passion you will never forget.

Aphrodisiac Oysters

aphrodisiac oyster

Oysters stir your libido to the roof because it is an aphrodisiac. Why?
  • Because it resembles the female genetalia.
  • Because Casanova, the 18th century gigolo would greatfully devour 50 oysters for breakfast to keep his libido in top form.
  • Oysters are loaded with zinc, a key nutrient for testosterone production, (important for stimulating libido in both men and women).
  • They keep men virile til old age.
  • D-aspartic acid (D-Asp) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), the amino acids oysters contain which was said to trigger chain reactions in hormones that can lead to sexual aggressiveness.
  • Oysters have always been linked with love. When Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, sprang forth from the sea on an oyster shell and promptly gave birth to Eros, the word "aphrodisiac" was born.


Coffee is an aphrodisiac

coffee aphrodisiac

Certainly, we all know what’s in a cup of coffee and what a coffee is. We all have experienced its exquisite taste and highly appreciated aroma. But did you know that it is a potent aphrodisiac as well?

Legend has it that Turkish people claimed coffee to be an aphrodisiac and husbands kept their wives well supplied. If the husband refused, it was a legitimate cause for a wife to divorce.

A recent study has suggested that coffee could be a potent aphrodisiac for women who infrequently consume the beverage. The experiment was done on female rats where they had to ingest a certain amount of caffeine. The female rats that ingested the substance before mating were quicker than the “not caffeinated” females to enjoy another hanky-panky moment.

Although the experiment is highly suggestive of caffeine’s aphrodisiac powers, an underlying fact that it was done on animals that haven’t had any caffeine in their life still remains. Most of the time, women drink coffee on a daily basis or ingest caffeine in cola beverages. The current study’s results might be something to think about for women who don’t ingest a lot of caffeine, who usually have a low level of caffeine in their diet. It is possible that it might enhance the sexual experience only among people who are not habitual users.

Since coffee does have an effect in our nervous system usually to wake our sleepy system in the morning or at night when we had to stay up late, perhaps it is capable, to some extent, of boosting our stamina and imagination hence, in the most conducive environment; an increase in sex drive is possible.

Chocolates Used as Aphrodisiac

chocolate aphrodisiac

Chocolates are believed to be an aphrodisiac. Its reputation started from ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations where it was thought to have magical and aphrodisiac qualities, where when taken, it enhances one’s sexual prowess. That is why it’s often referred to as food of the gods. That was one thousand five hundred years ago. Today, it is still considered as so and yet not magical nor as food of any god but of common men. One thing for sure is eating chocolates gives one a pleasant feeling afterwards. 

Chocolate contains more than 300 known chemicals some of it having qualities which might explain some of the pleasurable effects of consuming chocolate. Caffeine is the most well known of these chemical ingredients, and while it's present in chocolate, it can only be found in small quantities. Theobromine, a weak stimulant, is also present, in slightly higher amounts. The combination of these two chemicals (and possibly others) may provide the "lift" that chocolate eaters experience. Phenylethylamine is also found in chocolate. It's related to amphetamines, which are strong stimulants. All of these stimulants increase the activity of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) in parts of the brain that control our ability to pay attention and stay alert.

After the “good-feeling,” chocolates also possess qualities that are beneficial to our health. Only, this is limited to dark chocolates since consuming the other chocolate by-products such as milk chocolate or white chocolate, or drinking milk with dark chocolate, appears to largely negate the health benefit. Dark chocolate, with its high cocoa content, is a rich source of the flavonoids epicatechin and gallic acid, which are thought to possess cardio-protective properties. Cocoa possesses a significant antioxidant action, protecting against LDL oxidation, perhaps more than other polyphenol antioxidant rich foods and beverages. Some studies have also observed a modest reduction in blood pressure and flow mediated dilation after consuming approximately 100g of dark chocolate daily. Evidence from laboratory studies also suggests that cocoa flavonoids may possess anti-carcinogenic mechanisms, but more research is needed to prove this idea.

Regarding its aphrodisiac effects, the consumption of chocolates give an instant energy boost, increasing stamina, giving it its reputation as an aphrodisiac. The energy boost was said to have come from the highly addictive substances of Phenylethylamine and Seratonin, which I have mentioned earlier, although women are more susceptible to the effects of these substances than men. This illustrates why women tend to be more chocoholic than men.

Three other chemicals are used to explain why chocolate makes people feel "good." "Researchers at the Neuroscience Institute in San Diego, California believe that 'chocolate contains pharmacologically active substances that have the same effect on the brain as marijuana, and that these chemicals may be responsible for certain drug-induced psychoses associated with chocolate craving'.” Although marijuana's active ingredient that allows a person to feel "high" is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a different chemical neurotransmitter produced naturally in the brain called anandaminde has been isolated in chocolate. "Because the amounts of anandamide found in chocolate is so minuscule, eating chocolate will not get a person high, but rather that there are compounds in chocolate that may be associated with the good feeling that chocolate consumption provides.”

In the body, anandamide is broken down rapidly into two inactive sections after produced by the enzyme hydrolase found in our bodies. In chocolate, however, there are other chemicals that may inhibit this natural breakdown of anandamide. Therefore, natural anandamide may remain extensively, making people feel good longer when they eat chocolate.
