Amyl nitrate is available legally through prescription only and dispensed through licensed pharmacies only. Any use other than what is prescribed by a licensed practitioner is therefore illegal.
Administration is through inhalation or nebulization and is for the treatment of cyanide poisoning and as a pain reliever for angina attacks.
Other uses include as a diagnostic aid in tests of reserve cardiac function and diagnosis of certain heart murmurs.
It is abused mainly to produce euphoria and as a sexual stimulant.
Side effects may include headaches, nausea, coughing, dizziness, fainting, and in serious instances, it can be fatal if swallowed. Continued use can cause skin problems around the mouth and nose.
Amyl Nitrate is catergorised as a depressant drug as it slows down messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
When first used as a medicine, amyl nitrite came in a small glass capsule encased in cotton wool. This was crushed between the fingers resulting in a popping noise - giving the drug their street name - ‘poppers'. Butyl and isobutyl nitrites have been sold under many names and have been sold as many things to avoid the eyes of the law.
Inhaling nitrites relaxes smooth muscles throughout the body, including the sphincter muscles of the anus and the vagina. This causes the blood vessels to dilate (which causes a sudden drop in blood pressure), increases heart rate, and produces a sensation of heat and excitement that usually lasts for a couple of minutes.
Amyl nitrites are often used as a club drug or to enhance a sexual experience. The head rush, euphoria, uncontrollable laughter or giggling, and other sensations that result from a drop in blood pressure are often felt to increase sexual arousal and desire. It is widely reported that poppers can enhance and prolong orgasms.
Short term effects
The short-term effects of using amyl nitrite may include light-headedness and giddiness, increased sensual awareness, loss of inhibitions, skin sensitivity, headache, nose bleeds and loss of consciousness.
The long term effects of amyl nitrite:
Compared to many drugs, amyl nitrite has less toxicity as long as it is inhaled. However, people who are anemic, pregnant, have high blood pressure or a history of cerebral hemorrhaging should avoid use of nitrites.
While the possibility of death or serious injury from inhaling is fairly remote, there is a major toxicity problem with nitrites if they are swallowed rather than inhaled. When eaten, nitrites interfere with the ability of blood to transport oxygen. Oral consumption of nitrites has led to death in some circumstances.
Combining amyl and Viagra is also problematic, causing loss of consciousness, and in some circumstances - death. As poppers increase pressure within the eyeball, users with glaucoma take additional risks when using poppers.
Our species evolved using scent to help us survive. We recognized what was food through scent. As a flower lures a bee, an animal emits pheromones to lure a mate to propagate our species. These hormonal emissions, the breath of desire, contain all kinds of tiny chemical constituents. They have the ability to affect us immensely. When we inhale a scent the area in the brain known as the limbic system first recognizes its chemical constituents. This area deals with emotion and memory. In fact the sense of smell is the only sense that is not first routed through the thalamus. Therefore scent affects our brain chemistry even before we recognize its presence.
Western Science has an insatiable desire to prove what ancient man knew through experience. It has been able to isolate chemical constituents present in plant material and essential oils that can have an effect us in many ways. Some chemical constituents relax the central nervous system and some modulate brain chemistry potentially evoking euphoria, while some are stimulating. This may help to explain why certain aromas have been known throughout history as aphrodisiacs.
Scent is just one method for experiencing these chemical messengers. Topical application, herbal teas, extracts, herbal wines and cordials are all ways of absorbing these plants and their wonderful effects. For example, a massage oil containing essential oils when applied infuses these tiny molecules into our blood and easily circulates through what is known as the "blood brain barrier" where they impart their effects. When ingested, these chemical constituents are also absorbed into the blood.
The following, will explore several herbs and essential oils that have been utilized as aphrodisiacs throughout history and recipes including them.
Damiana: Turnera aphrodisiaca
Hot, and spicy in nature. Damiana increases blood flow to the pelvic region. It is native to Mexico where it is known as an ancient Indian aphrodisiac

Maca: Lepidium meyenii
Nutritive root native to Peru where it is known for regulating sex hormones, and enhancing the libido.
Guarana: Paullinia cupana
This South American native plant is used as a stimulant. Guaranine, one of its chemical constituents is similar in chemical structure to caffeine. This tonic herb is slightly narcotic and known as an aphrodisiac.
A cordial is a lightly sweetened herbal tincture. They are delicious ways of enjoying an herb's properties. Most often they are alcohol based, but can be made non-alcoholic if one so desires. Often a cordial includes fresh or dried herbs, and fresh or frozen fruits.
Chose what ingredients you will include.
Prepare you ingredients:
Chop or blend fresh fruits and herbs.
Grind dried herbs in a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder.
Put the ingredients into a wide mouthed jar and cover with enough alcohol so that the liquid covers the herbs more than an inch:
Liquors that are 40 percent alcohol make great menstrums. Brandy, rum and vodka are all
suitable. Glycerin can be used to make a non-alcoholic menstrum that is already sweet,
eliminating the need to add honey.
Let this mixture sit for a week or so. It is good to agitate the jar every so often.
Strain the mixture through cheesecloth, or Cheryl's Herbs: Mary's Tea Bag.
Sweeten to taste (unless glycerin was used). Try 1/2 cup honey (agave nectar, molasses...whatever you like) per quart.
2 parts Berries (fresh or frozen)
2 parts Cacao Beans
2 parts Damiana
1 part Muira Puama
1 part Maca Root Powder
1/2 part Eleuthero Root powder
1/2 part Chinese Ginseng powder

An aromatic massage is an effective way at encouraging relaxation and intimacy. The application of essential oils through the use of ”carrier" oil imparts the oils effect into the blood stream quickly. Many chemical constituents like terpenes, are present in the blood stream as early as 2 minutes after topical application. Most other chemicals are present in the blood's chemistry by 20 minutes.

When adding essential oils to your carrier aromatherapists for whole body massage use a standard dilution rate of 2.5%. This is roughly:
15 drops essential oil (from an eyedropper)
1 oz carrier (Almond, Grapeseed, etc.)
Essential Oil Mixtures:
Although scent is incredibly subjective, the harmony of a mixture of essential oils is detectable in a manner similar to the harmony that is produced by notes in a chord musically. In fact you will encounter many references to music when considering perfumery.
Scents are categorized as base, middle and top notes. This refers to their characteristics as well as their evaporation rate. When creating a mixture one might include top, middle, and base note oils to create a harmonious chord.
