A wild harvested mountain herb
Growing wild in the central American mountains, Damiana is considered a National Treasure in Mexico to this day.
With historic herbal uses
Damiana is a medicinal herb used for thousands of years by the Guaycura, Aztecs and Mayans to relieve tension, calm anxiety, and improve blood flow.
That is actually Banned in Louisiana
In 2005, the state of Louisiana issued a blanket ban on botanicals that were used in conjunction with hallucinogens in designer drugs, leading to what the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) called an "Unfair Ban" of Damiana. Luckily however, the AHPA has been lobbying the legislators to restore Damiana's good name.
Was part of the Original Margarita
Mexican folklore says that the very first margarita ever made was made with Damiana Liqueur.
And a certain famous cola drink.
Pemberton's French Wine Coca was the precursor to a famous Cola drink, named after two of it's ingredients: Coca and Kola. It must have packed quite a punch as it was made with French Wine, Kola Nuts, Coca Leaves, and Damiana. The temperance movement forced Pemberton to remove the Wine, and eventually the Damiana was lost too, until now.
It just makes me feel better.

We can barely keep it in stock, and then if we run out, our customers say, "Where's The Dam Tea!?"
