One of the few animal products listed in these pages, sepia is made from cuttlefish ink. You know, the ink which is the source of the term “sepia tone.” It is used homeopathically by normally energetic women who have become despondent, moody, or depressed. It’s actually been used for so many ailments that it’s sometimes called the women’s wonder drug – but, notably, in a specifically homeopathic sense. It has been successfully applied to many cases of postchildbirth sexual indifference, earning it a secure place in the aphrodisiac arsenal, though it is more commonly used against PMS, menopausal symptoms, fibroids, and chronic fatigue.
While primarily a women’s remedy, sepia is also considered useful for men suffering sexual or intellectual energy loss.
