She has none. She is only 30 and in good health. Any suggestions?
Herbs recommended to stimulate male and female libido and sexual activity are Ginseng (Siberian Ginseng for women), Damiana (Turnera diffusa), Oats (an extract made from 1 part oats to 1 part alcohol) and Saw Palmetto. Cayenne can be used as a blood stimulant with these herbs. Sexually stimulating aromatherapy preparations that can be used in a massage are Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Jasmine.
James Duke in "The Green Pharmacy" ( St. Martin’s Press, 175 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10010) reports other herbs that have been found useful are anise, cardamom and ginger. Fenugreek and parsley are estrogenic and are used for increasing female libido and helping with vaginal dryness.
