Damiana is also known as Turnera Diffusa. It is a wild plant that grows in arid tropical America. Mexico is the largest producer and exporter. It is a small shrub with leaves 1-1.5 cm long (about half an inch), that look like pale green cloth and has small yellow flowers. The Calyx tubular corolla has five petals.
Damiana is a relatively small shrub that produces small, aromatic flowers. It blossoms in early to late summer and is followed by fruits that taste similar to figs. The shrub is said to have a strong spice-like odor somewhat like chamomile, due to the essential oils present in the plant. The leaves have traditionally been made into a tea and an incense which was used by native people of Central and South America for its relaxing effects. Spanish missionaries first recorded that the Mexican Indians drank Damiana tea mixed with sugar for use as an aphrodisiac.
