ConvivialiTea

Jasmine tea is one of the most delightful concoctions, and it can create an aura of bliss and conviviality. This tea is commonly found in most grocery stores, but organic and whole food shops always offer superior quality. Brew a cup of jasmine tea and let it cool. Add two parts lemonade and drink the mixture with a close friend on a Friday, Venus’s day, which rules our relationships. Jasmine is a vine, which traditionally represented the intertwining of people. Sharing this tea with a friend will enhance your bond.

This tea is also a tonic that you can indulge in alone. I recommend brewing a batch every Monday, or moon day, to ensure that each week will be filled with joy. As the tea steeps, pray:

On this day in this new week,
I call upon the spirit to guide joy to my door.
Such gladness as I receive, so shall I give.
By this moon on this day,
I call upon Ishtar and Celene, ladies fair,
to show me the best way to live.
For this, I am grateful.

Tea for Two: Passion Potion

A tea of mandrake root, when mixed with the sweat of a lover, can be sprinkled around the bedroom to heighten ecstasy if accompanied by this chant:

Brew of mandrake, brew of desire,
enchant this bed with passion’s fire.
Cast a spell of ecstasy.
This is my will. 
So mote it be.

Sweetheart Tea
Here is a quick recipe to create exactly the right mood for a dreamy evening:
 
Stir together in a clockwise motion:
  • 1 ounce dried and pulverized rosehips 
  • 1⁄2 ounce peppermint
  • 1⁄2 ounce dried lemon balm
You can store this in a tin or colored jar for up to a year for those special evenings. When you are ready to brew the tea, pour boiling water over the herbs, two teaspoons for every cup of water. Say the following spell aloud during the five minute steeping and picture your heart’s desire:
 
Herbal brew of love’s emotion
With my wish I fortify
When two people share this potion
This love shall intensify
As in the Olde Garden of Love.

Sweeten to taste with honey and share this luscious libation with the one you love.

Plant Infusions That Comfort and Heal

Many enthusiasts enjoy several cups a day of their favorite herbal infusion, which is a large portion of herb brewed for at least four hours and as long as ten. I recommend one cup of the dried herb placed in a quart canning jar and filled with freshly boiled water. After the steeping, strain with a non-metallic method, such as cheesecloth or bamboo. Herbal Infusions can be made with the leaves and fruits which provide the magical and healing aspects of this comforting concoction. Many of the favorite kitchen witch herbs contain minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, including the list herein. Roots, leaves, flowers, needles and seeds can all be useddepending on which fruit or herb is chosen to be the base. There are some cases when all parts of the plant can be used in some manner, and at others only one or two parts are safeit is important, when creating a blend from scratch, that the creator has researched ingredients to understand what parts can be used.

What do you need to attend in your life now? This list of herbs and associations can be your guide; one of the smartest ways to approach this methodology is to brew right before bedtime, and you will awaken to a freshly infused herb. Some of the most popular herbs and fruits used to create infusions are:

Anise Seeds & Leaves – soothes cramps and aches
Caraway Seeds – aids in romantic issues, helps with colic
Catnip Leaves – makes women even more attractive
Chamomile Flowers – helps with sleep, good for abundance
Dandelion Leaves – makes wishes come true
Echinacea – makes the body strong
Ginseng Root – increases men’s vigor
Nettle Leaves – lung function, hex breaking
Peppermint Leaves – rids tummy discomfort, cleansing
Pine Needles – increases skin health as well as financial health
Rose Hip Fruit – packed with vitamin C and can halt colds and flu
Sage Leaves – purifies energy, antibiotic
Skullcap Leaves – prevents insomnia, cures St. John’s Wort, anti- depressant protection
Thyme Leaves – antiseptic, a protectant
Yarrow Flowers – reduce fever, bring courage and good luck

Hedgewitch Tinctures

Teas brewed from a single herb are commonly called “simples.” I love that phrase of olden times. Experience has taught me that these simples often have the most intensity, since the very singleness of the herb gives it potency. A simple made from one of the following herbs enhances mental clarity, even clairvoyance. This will jumpstart you on your path toward any creative pursuit. Here is a recipe for a very inspired tea:

Boil one pint of spring water. Place into your favorite crockery teapot a half-ounce of any ONE of the following herbs: rosemary, mugwort, yarrow or thyme.

Treasure Hunting Tea: A Medieval Charm
The humble dandelion, oft abhorred by lawn keepers, hides its might well. Dandelion root tea can call upon the spirit of anyone whose advice you might need. Simply place the brew on your nightstand and say the spirit’s name seven times; he or she will visit your dreams and answer your questions. In Chaucer’s day, this method was used to find lost treasures.
