The Lexicon defines daimonios (δαιμόνιος) as miraculous, marvelous, heaven-sent, by Divine power.
This particular hymn appears to be specifically about contraception.
This hymn seems to be about the way the urge-to-merge gets off-course, wanders off-course and then advises the use of a drug to induce abortion in order to restore a happy, sweet, good, complete life. The drug should be taken following a moment of passion.
This seems to a hymn about the Original Plan B.
Progestogens are a form of hormonal contraception. Progeustees (προγεύστης) means one who tastes before. Note that geuo (γεύω) means taste: literally "generative essence pure brings-forth," perhaps a euphemistic description of oral sex?
This may be a hymn about inducing/bringing about menstruation: directing (Δ) + blood (αίμονα).
If the Orphic Hymns are the hymns of the Eleusinian Mysteries of Demeter, this is consistent with the scene in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter when she drinks a drink flavored with pennyroyal, Mentha pulegium as well as the association of pomegranates with Demeter and her daughter, Kore.
Citing Lucia Nixon, “The Cults of Demeter and Kore,” Women in Antiquity:
“In the HHD (Homeric Hymn to Demeter), Demeter requests a drink, kykeon, made of barley meal, water, and tender pennyroyal, Mentha pulegium L. The text is clear as to the species, and translators do no service by rendering it simply as mint. Aritosphanes makes it clear that he and his audience know of its use as an anti-fertility drug. In the Hippocratic Corpus, pennyroyal is recommended for opening the uterus for various reasons: preconceptual purgation, hysteria, emmenagogue, expulsion (of foetus/afterbirth), and stimulation of lochia. Dioscorides, Pliny, and Galen also recommend it as emmenagogue and abortifacent . . .
“Pennyroyal and its extract, ketone pulegone, work by stimulating contractions of the uterus, hence its use in preventing or ending pregnancy. It can also be used to strengthen contractions in labour, to help expel the placenta, and to assist the involution of the uterus after birth, though these uses are not specifically mentioned in ancient sources.” p. 85
“Towards the end of the poem Persephone tells Demeter that Hades tricked her and forced her to eat a pomegranate seed . . . Like pennyroyal, pomegranate is used for expulsion (of foetus/afterbirth) . . . Soranus is very clear on the main use of pomegranate: he lists no fewer than five different prescriptions for contraceptive pessaries . . . It is now known that the pomegranate contains female sex hormones, hence its effectiveness as a contraceptive.
“According to the Hippocratic Corpus, pine resin(from Pinus brutia, laricio, halepensis, pinea) is one of several emollient pharmaka that bring on strong katharsin (usually meaning cleaning of the uterus through menstruation) . . . Dioscorides says that pine products are abortifacient . . . Soranus says that pine bark can prevent pregnancy.” [Note: This may explain the pine-tipped staffs of Bacchantes, the thyrsus.]
“(Pennyroyal, pomegranate, pine, and vitex) could provide an easily accessible way for women to regulate every stage of their reproductive lives (menstruation, conception, abortion, delivery, lactation, and possibly menopause) . . . women knew that fertility was a matter of choice, and that they were only as fertile as they wanted to be.”
