Aniseed as a Sexual Enhancement Aid

Updated on September 30, 2009

See how Aniseed will Perk Up Your Love Life

Aniseed is also known as anise, anis or anise seed, pimpinel seed, and sweet cumin. This potent aphrodisiac is a plant that produces seeds that are used in both herbal medicine and aromatherapy. The seeds are considered a spice with a sweet licorice-like taste. It can help increase libido with no side effects which is a beautiful thing!

Aniseed has been used as an aphrodisiac since the Greeks and the Romans, who believed aniseed had special powers. Sucking on the seeds is said to increases your desire. It includes estrogenic compounds, which are female hormones. It also works the same in men inducing similar effects of testosterone.

The ancient Romans, according to Pliny the elder, thought the plant promoted better sleep. This is because large quantities can have the tendency to act like a narcotic in the system. Smaller doses though will induce a relaxed state will help heighten feelings of sensuality.

Another benefit to aniseed is that it's been used for thousands of years as a natural breath freshener. Many mouthwashes and toothpastes sold in natural foods stores also contain anise. Or, you can just make your own natural mouthwash by steeping anise seeds in boiling water. A great idea is to carry some seeds with you the next time you are out to dinner and suck on the seeds for sexy fresh breath. Make sure to share some with your partner. You'll increase desire in both you and your date for sexy after dinner delights! Not to mention the taste of your kisses will be unforgettable.

Opportunities to use anis in your aphrodisiac efforts are numerous. Both the leaves and the seeds are used in breads, cakes, and confections in parts of Europe and the Middle East, in curry and seafood dishes in India and neighboring countries, in various dishes in Southeast Asia, and as the flavoring of such alcoholic drinks as the French pastis and Pernod, Greek ouzo, Italian Sambuca, and Turkish Arak.

For a double dip of aphrodisiac delight, try serving Honey Bread as a sweet dessert. The honey will give you prolonged energy and the aniseeds will increase your desire for some decadent love making.

Honey Bread

1 cup honey
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 cup almost boiling water
Grated rind of one orange or one lemon
1 tsp crushed anise seeds
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups flour
2 tsp warm milk

Combine the honey, sugar, and baking soda and set aside. Heat water to just barely boiling and add to the honey mixture along with the anise seeds and fruit rind and stir just until blended, don’t let it come to a full boil. Gradually add to honey mixture and continue stirring until dough is smooth and starting to thicken.
You can either allow this to age overnight a cool dark place or you can bake it right away depending on your timing and preference. Just butter a nine inch bread pan, place the dough in the pan and bake at 350 for one hour. Brush with the warm milk and allow it to cool before removing from pan.
