Damiana can be found growing wild throughout the southern United States, South America and the West Indies. It is a small shrub with yellow flowers and long, broad, light green leaves. The flowers have an aromatic scent with a warm, bitter camphor-like taste. Damiana was named 'mizib-coc' (meaning plant of asthma) by the Mayan Indians of Yucatan, but the herb's legendary reputation is noted by the second part of its botanical name aphrodisiaca.
Today, Damiana is renowned for its effects and holds a special place in Mexican folklore and medicine.
