This oily amber resin
extracted from a giant rainforest canopy tree has been used for centuries by the medicine
men and shamans in magic rituals and love potions. The tree is called Jatoba (Hymenaea courbaril). The genus name Hymenaea is
derived from Hymen, the Greek God of marriage, referring to the green leaflets that always
occur in matching pairs. Interestingly, the resin somehow reacts with individual skin
chemistry causing a unique and sexually enticing aroma on each person wearing it. On
women, the scent can be sweet to spicy. On men, the aroma is more cedar-like to peppery...
but both women and men are experiencing amazing sexual attraction and increased sexual
energy and libido by wearing it! It's chemical properties and methods of actions are
unproven by western scientists yet, but it is possible that it has a pheromonal
aphrodisiac quality by reacting to estrogens and testosterones in the skin, or even an
aromatherapy quality targeting the pleasure and sexual centers of the brain. Sometimes
however, the magic and mystery of the jungle shamans and their potions just can't be
explained by western scientists and we may never know how it truly works or why.
