What are Emanuel’s Elixirs?

My elixirs are blends of selected herbal extracts. I handcraft each extract by steeping certified organic plant materials in a combination of organic grain alcohol, water, glycerin, and organic apple cider vinegar. The proportions of these solvents depend on the solubility of the desired chemical constituents of each herb.
The mixture is then either stirred daily over a 2 week period, or slow heated over several hours.

I later blend these individual plant extracts to create 6 varieties of fast-acting aphrodisiacs and 7 tonic aphrodisiacs.

Why choose my elixirs?

I prepare each blend using herbs that have been certified organically grown or are from sustainably harvested botanical sources.

I have personally formulated each elixir using both the legacy of traditional herbal medicine, as well a modern scientific perspective.

I have handcrafted each elixir in compliance with the Good Manufacturing Practices.

My fast-acting aphrodisiacs are created to make you feel juicy, energetic, and relaxed, so you can experience more satisfying and more profound sensual interludes.

My tonic aphrodisiacs are gender specific. They are formulated to support over-all body vitality or to supplement against deficiency so you will express a greater desire for intimacy and sensual play.

How to take my elixirs?

I craft my elixirs to have a sweet taste so you can swallow them easily, without the burning sensation of alcohol or the overwhelming bitterness of some herbal extracts. It allows for sublingual application to enhance your absorption.
There is no sugar added. The sweet smoothness of my elixirs comes from the use of 30-35% kosher vegetable glycerin processed from soy.

My elixirs contain 25-30% certified organic grain alcohol. Please use them wisely and safely.

If you would like, you can dilute my elixirs with water, tea, juice, or any beverage of your choice.

How different are the fast-acting and the tonic aphrodisiacs?

Fast-acting aphrodisiacs are created for everyone to have immediate, relaxing, stress relieving, stimulating and euphoric sensual interactions. Use them by taking a serving of 1 to 3 half droppers (approximately=30 to 90 drops = 1 to 3ml) several times over a period of a few hours.

Tonic aphrodisiacs are gender specific, and require time to replenish, support and stimulate the body’s vitality. They are intended to be taken in a serving of 1 half dropper (approximately=30 drops=1ml) regularly, 2 or 3 times a day, with a meal, over a period of a few days or 2-9 weeks depending on the specific tonic.

This is your first time using herbs. What should you expect?

I suggest you first try a few drops of one of my elixirs with no expectation of any effects, but just experiencing the tastes and the energetics of the herbs. Place 1 or 3 drops on the back of your hand, bring them your nose and smell, then, bring your hand to your lips and lick off the drops. Let the liquid spread on your tongue and experience the flavors developing in your mouth.
Most formula will have a bitter taste with a sweet edge, your mouth will moisten with saliva.
There are known allergic sensitivities to plants. Those who have such sensitivity may feel some discomfort within a few minutes. Testing at low dose will prevent a strong reaction.
After a few minutes, you usually can decide to proceed safely to one dose, half dropper (=30 drops, approx. 1ml). You may proceed more cautiously from a few drops to 30 drops if you are a highly sensitive.

What are the herbs I use in my fast-acting aphrodisiacs?

There are 4 common herbal extracts in all 6 varieties of my fast-acting aphrodisiacs. Three have a long-standing reputation as aphrodisiac, and have been traditionally used for hundreds of years for this purpose. They are Damiana leaf (Turnera diffusa), Horny Goat Weed leaf (Epimedium grandiflorum), and Kava Kava root (Piper mysticum). The fourth common herbal extract is Yarrow leaf and flower (Achillea millefolium). As a diaphoretic and vasodilator, Yarrow balances the warming and stimulating qualities of the aphrodisiac herbs to prevent over-heating and over-stimulation. Energetically, Yarrow strengthens and protects your personal boundaries. It is used to provide safety, confidence, and balance.
Fast-acting aphrodisiacs also contain other well-known aphrodisiacs. I use these to create a variety of blends, catering to a variety of mood and flavor preferences. These other herbs are Cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum burmannii), Ginger root (Zingiber officinale), Clove flower bud (Syzygium aromaticum), Cacao bean (Theobroma cacao), Cardamom seed (Elettaria cardamomum), Vanilla bean (Vanilla planifolium), and Nutmeg nut (Myristica fragans).

Fast-acting aphrodisiacs may also contain Guarana seed (Paullinia cupana) for its high caffeine (actually guaranine) content, and Citrus peel (Citrus sinensis, and Citrus X limonia) for its flavor.
