Muira Puama is a wood found in South America, often referred to as Potency Wood, or the “Viagra of the Amazon”. Muira Puama has an enduring history of traditional use as an energy tonic, remedy for impotence and offers a natural therapeutic approach to loss of libido in both men and women. In Europe it also has a long history of use as an anti-rheumatic, aphrodisiac, a tonic for overall health, increased energy, memory and for gastrointestinal disorders.
A useful wood for stuffing poppets related to healing and love, or use for spell bags, charms, incense and bath teas.

I feel this is a fire element based wood and definitely masculine in its gender.
A strong and virile wood I feel relates to strong male deities such as Odin, Zeus,
While it’s links with love would be suited to Venus, Aphrodite, Freya
