Nine images of Damiana, Turnera diffusa, native to warmer regions of the Americas was long placed in the Turneraceae, but new genetic data now places it in the Passifloraceae, Passionflower family. Its long standing reputation as an aphrodisiac evolves out of the first attempts to market the herb in the 1870s. Writing from La Paz, Mexico in February 1904, Prof. John Uri Lloyd, observed its use. “Damiana is a homely, domestic remedy, innocent of the attributes under which, in American medicine, it has, for a quarter of a century, been forced to masquerade.”
