The sacral chakra is associated with emotions, desire and sexuality. Desire is an emotional impulse that inspires us to move to something greater; to embrace change. If we don’t desire anything, the senses shut down and we lose our ability to expand.
The herb, maca, can help. It is known as an adaptogen. Adaptogens are special kinds of herbs that adjust to a variety of conditions within the body and help restore it to a healthy balance. Maca, in particular, works on the endocrine system to balance hormones in both men and women, increasing sexual desire. Safe to use daily, maca can be added to many recipes such as these chocolate pops or your morning smoothies. These bars are best eaten from the refrigerator. Other puffed grains can be used such as millet or buckwheat.
