My take on Moroccan spiced Tea.
Handful spearmint or peppermint dried. Or teabag
1 small cinnamon stick
7-8 Cardomon pods
Small knob of ginger
A pinch of oolong tea
Approx 20 Coriander seeds
5 ish cloves
Place everything apart from mint in a pan of water.
Heat and Macerate the spices for around 10 mins.
Naturally, giving thanks and pouring love into the brew
The spices will beging to give up their goodness.
Turn the heat to very low
Add the mint and steep for another 5 mins
Strain and enjoy.
I reuse the herbs and get around 3 brews.
Great for digestive system and keeping you warm as the spices keep your circulation flowing.
I created this blend for an Intention setting ceremony.
Smells so good.
So, thought I would share my recipe with you.
2 parts Frankincense
1 Part Myrrh
2 Parts St Johns Wort
Small cinnamon stick
1 part Woodruff
2 bay leaves
A pinch of Dragons Blood
Cheer's Elder Mother
The pollen count is High so Mama provides to support.
Locally gathered Elderflowers will provide you with a dose of pollen and act as an anti-histamine.
Its best to start drinking cordial, tea or tincture in around March. So remember to dry some, make tinctures or freeze some of the cordial.
Elder is steeped in superstition, it is said witch's are able to turn themselves into elder trees
If you sleep under an Elder you will never awaken. But instead be taken to the Underworld seduced by the smell of the flowers. The white pith inside the branches contain as sleep inducing substance.
Legend says never to burn Elder wood as Elder Mother will seek revenge.
I always talk to the any flora or fauna before I take something from them.
I also leave an offering of some kind, be it a song, my faerie tobacco, even strands of my hair.
Old woodcutters would recite a rhyme.
Always gather with respect and leave plenty to turn to Berries for winter medicine.
Elder is really one of my favourite tree's, one of my plant Allies along with fern and oak. I have her berries inked on my arm.
I prefer to make my Elderflower syrup with coconut sugar, rather than honey or white sugar.
So, it is quite sharp and not as delicately
coloured. But so much better for you.
Elderflower, like Dandelion is also a diuretic.
It is useful in colds and flu, diabetes, bronchitis and sweating out a fever.
Used in cosmetics it whitens the skin
And helps to fade age spots.
Much gratitude for all of Mother Natires gifts.
I hope you enjoyed my little post.
One day, hopefully in the not too distant future. I will be back with my Plant Medicine and Natural Magic workshops, outside in Nature where I work at my best.
For the love of it all.
