We plant by the moon, pick, and make medicine by the moon. The moon calls the tides of our earth’s waters and our own individual tides. Just as some herbs are more suited to organs in the body they also correspond to the planets which orbit our the greater body of our earth.
JASMINE Jasminum officinale: Jasmine is a flower of love of both spiritual and physical manifestation. An aphrodisiac, Jasmine is also said to attract the good will of prosperity to those who wear it. In tea blends, it adds a calming element. The white of the Jasmine flower is what connects it to the full moon as well as the fact that the flower blooms only at night.
ANISE Pimpenella anisum: A common and delicious spice for the kitchen, Anise is antispasmodic, antiseptic, and sopoforic, relieving gas pains and cramps. Anise brings harmony between those who ingest it and protects from terrifying dreams. Like Jasmine, it mingles the powers of our physical and spiritual needs for love, helping to dissipate the illusion that they are separate in the first place.
PAU D’ARCO Tabebuia impetiginosa: Legend has it that when the Vikings first came to South America and saw the Pau D’arco plant and its unusual color they said that it must have come from the moon! A powerfully healing plant, Pau D’arco is used to treat colds, tropical diseases such as malaria, psoriasis, and is generally strengthening to the body.

We like living in Austin.
The people are as welcoming as the cool shade of old oaks on a hot day.
Folks generally speak a little slower.
They move a little slower.
And keeping cool has taken on a whole new meaning –
and it is not even summer yet.
Lets just say that most of the teas we are enjoying these days are iced.
It’s been a good move.

We are delighted to introduce our new line of Hogwarts-inspired House Teas to those lovely Muggles, Witches, and Wizards who shop the Apothecary. It is no secret that we’re fans of the magical world of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and have spent many an hour dressed up as Professor Trelawney and dreaming of having a copy of One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi by former Hogwarts Headmistress Phyllida Spore. Hopefully our new Hogwarts House Teas will inspire the student of magic in you! (more…)
