A Recipe for Sex –Spice it Up!
Mix cinnamon and cloves and you’ve got a sexy combination! It’s no secret that spices can enhance your sex life. Cinnamon and cloves happen to be among the best. Both spices were highly prized in Biblical times. Spices were an important commodity used both to preserve and add taste to food , as well as for medicinal purposes.
Cinnamon ( the best quality produced in China and India) is one of the oldest known spices. It was and still is used medicinally as an antiseptic, for circulation, as a parasiticide and an aphrodisiac.
Clove is a native of the Molluca Islands and is one of the best known spices of the world including cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg. It is used as an analgesic, antiseptic, calmative and aphrodisiac.
So what makes these two spices so sexy? Tucked away within the structure of these two spices are volatile oils and gums that cause the body to react in a biochemical way when we ingest them and smell them. The oils are stimulating and warming causing the circulation of the body to increase. Blood circulation is a precursor to sex. It is well documented that these spices heat up the digestive system. The Chinese use cinnamon to regulate blood sugar.
Research conducted at the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation concluded that when men smelled foods such as pumpkin pie and cinnamon buns( foods spiced with cinnamon and cloves) blood flow increased, suggesting cinnamon and cloves could be good for erectile dysfunction.
New studies also show that cinnamon and cloves speeds up the brain’s ability to react to visual cues. We all know that men are more visual than women so if you want to make a woman more visual and enhance a man’s visual ability feed a guy cinnamon and cloves!
The very definition of an aphrodisiac is anything that is believed to enhance sexual desire, performance or pleasure. It can be food, an aroma, music, light, color, your partner or in other words anything that helps to set the mood. Although unproven, foods that are purported to be aphrodisiacs usually are foods that support sexual health. Yes, your hormones and your abilty to perform are influence by your state of being.
