Uses for Yerba Mate
Yerba Mate is a “man’s herb”, martial in nature, fiery and it ignites the sexual passions. It makes its way into drugstore formulas for male sexual potency but you can brew it up yourself and that accomplishes two things. One is that you don’t have to worry about what else is in it and the other is that you can sorcery-it-up, by praying over it.
I recommend using the Orphic Hymn to Mars and you can go the whole nine yards by lighting a red candle, dressed with Mars Oil. Inscribe it with the glyph of Mars (sign on the boys bathroom) and roll the candle in Fire Powder. You can burn Fire Incense or Mars Incense as an offering and waft it over your head, seven times.
In your Yerba Mate tea for drinking, triple juice up the strength with Elecampane and Eleuthero Root, which is also known as Siberian Ginseng. Also, try the POWER! Potion, which is good not only for potency but for spiritual power.
