Natural ways to improve your sex drive
Do you feel like your sex drive isn't what it used to be?
If so, you're not alone.
Women of all ages can be affected by a low sex drive, with reasons ranging from the menopause to stress.
Despite a low libido being a completely natural occurrence, it can make some women feel ashamed, isolated and frustrated.
Before reaching for medical remedies to the problem, try these natural ways to improve your sex drive.
A tired and un-stimulated brain and body is less likely to want to have sex.
"A body that is stressed doesn't necessarily want to roll about in the sheets. De-stressing and feeling comfortable in your body is incredibly important in keeping a healthy sex drive," Charlotte Watts, nutritional therapist explains.
Yoga is the perfect way to arouse your body and mind - helping you feel physically fit, as well as de-stressing your brain.
It's a really quick fix as well, as you can simply whip out your yoga mat and channel your inner 'zen' there and then.
So long smoking (and wine..)
Smoking and excessive drinking have been known to have a detrimental affect on blood flow to the sexual organs.
Although a glass of wine may be the perfect companion to calm first date nerves, it may be best just to keep it to one or two.
If wine is your bed-time vice, why not try instead a herbal tea? It's a great substitute for the warm comfort wine gives, as well as being jam packed with nutrients that just make our skin glow!
Relieve the pressure
The most important thing is to remember not to put too much pressure on yourself. Low sex drive is a problem that is common among women and can affect any person at any time.
"The most important thing is to understand what's caused it in terms of being able to overcome it and recognising that ups and downs are normal," sex therapist Paula Hall explains.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.
