Spice It Up Love Bitters

2 fl oz (59 ml)
4.9 star rating 56 Reviews
“Spice It Up” Love Bitters is a deeply warming and invigorating blend of digestive bitters that also contain aphrodisiac properties. I created this formula to awaken not just our digestive fire, but our sensuality within the senses. While our classic Digestive Juice is a tried and true favorite for bolstering our ability to take in nourishment from our food, Spice It Up is a special edition date-night blend of carefully curated bitters that go one step further to open our heart space and get energy flowing with invigorating, warming, blood-moving herbs. Use before a night out, or dose intentionally before connective moments to support presence and sensation.*

DIGESTION + LIBIDO SUPPORT

Invigorate your fire

The super herbs in our blend

Damiana

Turnera diffusa

Think of this warming herb as Mother Nature’s love potion: a passion-inspiring, digestion-supporting, mood-enhancing, nerve-calming powerhouse most commonly used as a supportive tonic for libido. Helpful for those feeling rundown, in need of an herbal ally to help reignite their vivacious spirit.*

Each herb within this blend has been chosen for its unique, dual ability to support digestion (either digestive bitters or carminatives), as well as their ability to support libido by way of aiding the nervous system and maintaining healthy blood flow. The warming, invigorating herbs within this formula not only aid occasional gas and bloating, but nourish your vitality and the flexibility of a healthy nervous system.*

About the

Formula

Aphrodisiac herbs: friend or “faux”?

What we refer to in the plant world as “aphrodisiacs" are not magic bullet sexual tonics, but rather, they are what one of my herbalism teachers calls “wonder tonics.” They increase the desire to experience your human body with interest and curiosity.*

Supporting healthy libido requires helping our nervous systems to maintain both balance and flexibility; the ability to enter into a parasympathetic state of rest and relaxation so that we may truly feel the spectrum of human pleasure. If you’re familiar with our formulas, you know that bitter digestive tonics are herbs that do just that — as they stimulate our vagus nerve in order to help us move into “rest and digest” mode despite occasional stress.*

Aiding libido means that we must ensure our bodily fluids are flowing freely so that blood can flow where it needs to, in order to heighten sensation and arousal. Warming, invigorating herbs shine here as they support healthy blood circulation and the movement of fluids.*

Spice It Up Love Bitters contains a blend of nervous-system-focused bitters that help us relax, as well as warming digestive “carminatives” that direct blood and Qi downwards in order to aid in healthy digestion and elimination, healthy blood flow, desire, and vitality.*

What we call “aphrodisiacs” are really:

  • Herbs that are relaxing, grounding, invigorating, warming, Blood or Qi moving, and toning to the pelvic area
  • Herbs that are mind-clearing and Shen-nourishing, that connect the mind and heart in order to promote deep presence and intimacy
  • Herbs that warm and loosen blocks within the perceived self and emotional body, helping to bring you into your body safely 
  • Herbs that nourish and calm the nervous system in order to support us in the face of occasional stress and tension that may be blocking our ability to be fully connected with ourselves and others*


True aphrodisiac herbs bring you back into your body so that you can truly connect, allowing you to show up fully in the moment, conversation, laughter, and magnetism that leads to true intimacy with yourself and your partner. Spice It Up is a blend of grounding digestive herbs designed to be used before date night or time spent together — herbs that bring you back into your body so that you may remember your own capacity for sensuality.*

In order to feel excitement towards intimacy, we must also feel a sense of vitality and joy for our lives. This blend is designed to support the awakening of the fire deep within you that extends beyond digestion and libido.*


How to Use

About 15 minutes before a meal or right before the night gets started, spray 6-10 times on the tongue and let yourself taste the flavors before swallowing. This formula is ideal before date night dinner or any other intimate, connective activity. If you forget to take this blend before your food, no worries.*

You can always spray during or afterwards for warming, invigorating digestive support. "Spice it Up" Love Bitters can be used any time of day when occasional gas and bloating arise, or when you want to ground with warming and activating herbs in order to find your center and connect.*

Cardamom to warm + invigorate

Our Spice It Up Love Bitters contains a variety of warming, blood-moving digestive herbs, but Cardamom truly shines when it comes to the true “aphrodisiac” breakdown. With its dispersing, invigorating properties, Cardamom helps to clear the mind in order to prepare one for deep presence and intimacy.*

Part of the ginger family of plants, this herb is prized for its aromatic ability to direct digestive energy downward. The same digestive energy we use for food and drinks is also utilized to digest our thoughts, so if you're someone who is prone to looping thoughts that keep 'coming back up,' downward-directing fragrant herbs can support not only digestive difficulties but the healthy processing and elimination of rumination that may be blocking you from showing up fully in connection and togetherness.*

Mentally, Cardamom is extremely grounding, lifts the spirits, and supports our vitality reservoir. This is part of its history of use as an aphrodisiac tonic that energizes and rebuilds our spark and vital Qi.*

How to Use

About 15 minutes before a meal or intimate evening, spray 6 times (approx. 1ml) on the tongue and let yourself taste the flavors before swallowing. Ideal before date night dinner or any other pleasurable activity you choose.

If you forget to take before your food, no worries -- take your sprays during or afterwards for warming, invigorating digestive support. "Spice it Up" Love Bitters can be used any time of day when occasional gas and bloating arise, or when you want to ground with warming and activating herbs in order to find your center and connect.

The story
behind the formula

While embarking on a journey that I like to call “learning how to feel” (which is the sequel to my last two years of “learning how to be human”), I created The Connection Collection: a series of herbal formulas I’ve used along the way to go towards that feeling of freedom that only comes from feeling the full spectrum of my true emotions — both the joy and the grief, sometimes all at once.

After working with rose medicine and feeling profound effects and shifts in my life and my capacity to be with my own emotions, I created a line of intentional tinctures and tea, meant to be used in mocktails, before meals, before intimacy, or during self care rituals to deepen one’s ability to truly be in their body. It is my honor to share this collection with you, so that we all may learn to feel again together after the trials we’ve been through as a collective. Here’s to steeping in all the feelings and showing up fully with the courage of a lion’s heart.

Cacao

Theobroma cacao

As an all encompassing digestive, respiratory, and cardiac bitter, Cacao invigorates and fortifies the spirit, clears heat from the heart-mind, and maintains healthy blood flow. Traditionally used to ‘open the heart,’ this medicinal food and herb promotes connection and creativity by supporting the smooth flow of Qi.*

Gentian

Gentiana lutea

Gentian is one of the most powerful digestive bitter tonics we have. Used traditionally for damp heat and stagnation in the stomach and liver meridians, she gives us a boost to say goodbye to what is no longer serving us (whether that’s something physical we need to eliminate through the digestive system, or thoughts and beliefs we’ve been chewing on).*

Orange Peel

Citrus sinensis

For hundreds of years, orange peels have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, primarily in immune-supporting and digestive remedies. This often-overlooked part of the fruit is perhaps the most beneficial of all, rich in phytochemicals and bitter compounds that support gut and lung health.*

Cinnamon

Cinnamomum spp.

Cinnamon might already be a staple in your spice cabinet, but this digestive and immune powerhouse deserves prime real estate in your herbalism toolkit, too.*

Cardamom

Elettaria cardamomum

This aromatic, blood-moving “Queen of Spices” supports digestive fire and libido with its grounding and invigorating properties. While often utilized as a digestive tonic, Cardamom’s warming and activating nature is responsible for this herb’s long history as an “aphrodisiac” herb.*

Rose

Rosa spp

Not just stunning to look at, our beloved Rose imbues us with her beauty both internally and externally. Antioxidant-rich, soul-nourishing, and supportive to the mind and heart, roses have been used in traditional remedies for centuries to clear “heat,” open the heart, move Blood and Qi, and promote healthy emotional balance.*
