It’s common for our sex drives to fluctuate. Even those of us who are the “horny friend” in the group experience ebbs and flows in our libido—it can be affected by a variety of things, from certain medications to high levels of stress. That said, sex can be an important part of our romantic relationships, as well as our relationship with ourselves (heyyy to the copious benefits of masturbation).
For those of us who want to feel a little more *Backstreet Boys voice* sexxuuaaaallll, cacao may help. Cacao is a natural mood-lifter and has been used medicinally and ceremonially for thousands of years. It contains both stimulating and calming properties and helps promote production of anandamide (aka “the bliss molecule”) in the brain. Below, get an all-natural libido-boosting cacao latte recipe by Rachelle Robinett, herbalist, natural health advocate, and founder of Pharmakon Supernatural. (Bonus: the recipe also calls for functional mushroom powder, which help reduce stress and boost serotonin.)
