Your libido ebbs and flows – just like the rest of you. Sometimes you need a little help revving your engines, especially if you’re going through changes whether they be pregnancy, menopause, or another big life change.

If you feel like your sex drive could use a tune-up, then look no further than Mother Nature. We’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to help boost your libido – au natural.


Herbal Medicine

Herbs are the original form of medicine. They can help with all sorts of things, including giving your sex drive a boost!

What sort of herbs are used for libido in females?

  • Damiana
  • Gingko
  • Dong quai root
  • Fenugreek
  • Maca

Depending on what herbs you’re ingesting (and any other medications you might be on), they can usually be taken in a capsule, tincture, or drunk as tea. 

Our favourites are from Sexpot Apothecary, now stocked on Yinn. Sexpot Apothecary is focused solely on herbs for sexual wellness, presenting a thoughtful, carefully formulated collection of potent herbal aphrodisiacs and formulas for hormone balance, fertility and intimate health.

Aphrodisiac Appetizers

Certain foods have long been touted as love cures and sexual stimulants. Why not lay out an aphrodisiac-themed charcuterie board for you and your sweetie?

You can add:

  • Dark chocolate
  • Oysters
  • Figs
  • Ginger
  • Walnuts and almonds

It’s not just your traditional aphrodisiac foods that can help your sex drive, making other little tweaks to your diet can help you feel better in your body, have more energy, and of course – have better sex. Focus on whole foods and things that are seasonally available to you.  Your sex life will thank you.

Lifestyle Changes

This last tip isn’t a thing that you use, but a place that you go. Stress is one of the biggest blocks to a happy, healthy sex life. 

One of the best ways to manage your stress levels is by taking time to be in nature. Whether that’s a camping trip, hike, or just a few minutes spent outside to get some fresh air.

This isn’t the only lifestyle change that can help make a difference in your sex drive. Whatever else is going on in your life will show up in the sheets. You owe it to yourself (and your partner) to change the things that you can so that you feel better.

Besides spending more time outside, you can also manage stress and boost libido by:

  • Getting enough sleep.
  • Spending time with loved ones.
  • Setting boundaries and asking for help/support.
  • Take a break…you deserve that vacation.
  • Practicing intimacy with your partner outside of sex through cuddling, massages, honest communication, and more.
  • Evaluating any medications that may affect your libido.
  • Getting mental health support if necessary (or if it feels right for you).

You’d be surprised how much of a difference these little steps can make in helping you feel juicy and ready to roll!
