I used a fresh, green male plant with lots of unopened flowers. I baked the freshly harvested plant for 25 min at 270 degrees. Simmered the leaf with Organic Coconut oil for 1 1/2 hours. WOW results! Wonderful muscle rub. Great male toner also, seems to help with the badder and prostate. Warms up the skin, gave my wife swirly feelings on her back and neck.
