Aphrodisiac foods are known to put a spell on you, so to speak. Okay, not a spell, but they help to boost your sexual desire. You don’t have to wait for special occasions to eat these foods, either. Keep them in your kitchen, so that you can use them whenever you want to make things spicy. Just to clarify, you will not be eating spicy foods.
The pomegranate is incredibly rich in antioxidants, which helps to boost the immune system. In Eastern medicine, pomegranates have been used to help treat depression.

If you are looking for a hydrating, low-calorie fruit, watermelon should be your go-to. Because watermelons contain lots of electrolytes and water, they help improve circulation. Healthy circulation is important for any activity…you know what we mean.
Garlic may seem like an odd food to be on an aphrodisiac list because it has a lasting effect on your breath. If you both eat it, though, there won’t be any problems! Ancient Egyptian priests were actually forbidden to eat garlic because they feared that they wouldn’t be able to control their desires. Allicin, known for lowering cholesterol, helps to increase blood flow.
Almonds are popular on the health charts nowadays because they are a great source of healthy fats and protein. In fact, almonds have long-since been used as the symbol of fertility. To help set the mood, the smell of almond oil actually stimulates male and female libidos.
It’s important to get raw honey because the other stuff is incredibly processed. Honey helps to boost your hormones in both men and women. In addition to increasing estrogen and testosterone levels, honey also helps you become aroused.
Naturally rich in antioxidants and antihistamines, cherries can help to keep your immune system strong. Tying a knot in the stem with your tongue has nothing to do with the inherent aphrodisiac properties of the cherry, just so you know. Cherries actually help to boost the production of pheromones, the hormones that put you in the mood.
Basil is a classic ingredient in Italian cooking, but a lot of people don’t know that basil can help to increase the female libido.
