An aphrodisiac is defined as â€˜causing or increasing sexual desire` (The word is linked to the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite). Lovers throughout history have sought and used aphrodisiacs to get them in the mood.
For best results prepare the foods you are going to use during a waxing moon (anytime between the new and full moon) and burn a red candle as you work. Make preparations in advance so you have little to do at the last minute and can enjoy with your partner. Select a table that is small so your knees will touch when you are seated. Candles and flowers are essential; they are pleasing to the eye and give off a sensual fragrance. Try to avoid too highly scented flowers or candles which cover up the aromas of your meal. Dim the lights and put on some background music. A crackling fire will add to the sexy setting. Make sure phones are on silent mode, and please, leave the dishes for morning!

The most famous love food of all going back to Roman times. Casanova is said to have eaten fifty raw oysters every morning!

Wine tops the list of romantic beverages, especially champagne. This is because it fosters relaxation which in turn allows intimacy to develop.
What not to serve at a romantic dinner
Coffee and tea
They have too much caffeine for romance and make for a nervous lover rather than a loving one.
Ice cold water and cola drinks
They have a chilling effect on desire.
Citrus fruits and juices
Oranges, lemons and grapefruits for example - they contain too much acid to be helpful in providing sweetness to the occasion (the same goes for vinegar).
