Aphrodite's Aphrodisiac Dessert Recipes
Updated: Feb 9
The following edible and topical aphrodisiac recipes were created with gratitude and devotion in honour of the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. Each decadent blissful sensual dessert and erotic aroma therapy massage oil includes one or more aphrodisiacs which are sacred to Aphrodite. In my previous blog article, Aphrodite and her Plants of Love , I cover what effects each of the aphrodisiacs featured below have as well as share some of their enchanting history. Blessed be!
