As you all know, I use herbs all the time, for magic and medicine alike. For me, the healing they do on our mind and Spirit is just as important as the healing they do on our physical body; they are very powerful magical tools, and a cup of herbal tea can have the same positive effects than a Spiritual Bath, a Sahumerio (burning herbs as in smudging), or an ointment. For today’s post, I have a list of seven herbal teas specially formulated for witches – how cool is that? Very :).
“One Part” equals one teaspoon of fresh or dry herb per cup of tea. All of them are enhanced by the addition of honey. As a medicine for the body, and as a magical element, honey has tremendous healing, protection and nourishing properties.
1· For Grounding And Centering Before Spiritual Work:
Equal parts of Chamomile (Matricaria Chamomila), Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis), and Lemon Verbena (Aloysia Citriodora).
2· To Recharge Your Energy After Spiritual Work, Or After Being In A Magically Draining Situation:
Equal parts of Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis), Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris), and a fresh slice of Ginger root (Zingiber Officinalis)
Note – not very tasty if you’re not used to herbal brews, but it works!
3· When Spiritual Energy Is Really High And It’s Driving You Insane, For Good And Bad:
One part Fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare), one part Sage (Salvia Officinalis), Two Parts Peppermint or Spearmint (Mentha Piperita or Mentha Spicata).
4· When You’ve Been In A Place Filled With Spiritual Muck (Paranormal Investigator Witches, This One’s For You):
One part Sage (Salvia Officinalis), one part Lavender (Lavandula Genus), 1/3 of a Cinnamon stick (Cinnamomum Verum).
5· When You’ve Been With Someone Filled With Spiritual Muck (for negative people, but also after doing cleansing or hex-breaking work on someone):
One part Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dicoica), one part Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Citratus), one part Basil (Ocimum Basilicum).
6· To Increase Psychic Abilities And Magical Focus – 1:
One part Lavender (Lavandula Genus), one part Rose petals (Rosa Genus), one fresh Lemon slice.
7: To Increase Psychic Abilities And Magical Focus – 2:
One part Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Citratus), one part Fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare), one fresh slice of Ginger (Zingiber Officinalis).
And remember – do your research, and know your own health. Herbs are not harmless, and their chemicals can be very potent, specially if they are homegrown and fresh from the garden/farm. Read, research, read, research – knowledge is freedom and self-sufficiency!
