The Moon is calling, the herbs are singing, we’re sharing our dream!

LunarApothecary
I feel grateful and awe-struck to be able to put this work out into the world and to invite so many beautiful and clever souls into a circle of learning and magick! I have designed the course that I was looking for years ago – a place to dig deep into the world of herbology, revel in mystery, take delight in our ability to heal, and embrace the enchantment of our lives and worlds.

The circle is forming, the web is singing, and the Moon is calling our names…

I hope to see you at the Lunar Apothecary!

Herbs are Magick

I used to always say, “Herbs work on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of existence.” Later I came to understand that they also work on the magical level.  What this means is that they do not just change our person but that they can transform the environment around us.  They can actually cause events to occur.  Ultimately, what makes an event magical is that it is unexpected.  So, in other words, the herbs seem to get  a step ahead of us and create an event which we did not foresee but which corrects or enriches our lives.

Our First Sale!

We are having our first sale in our S H O P in celebration of All Hallow’s Eve!  Our Witch’s Delight Tea Blend is 10% off and will be until November 1st.  Witch’s Delight is an excellent brew for the cold season with Elder Berry & Flower, Hawthorn Berry & Flower, and local Maine apples included in the blend.  With your tiny vial of green magic powder (Spirulina) included in every order, you’ll be able to practice your own potion making powers.

Witch’s Delight is made of:

HAWTHORN LEAF & BERRY Craetagus monongyna: Used as a living plant barrier, Hawthorn marks the permeable barrier between the mundane and the magical. A charm of resiliency, Hawthorn protects against lightening and storm damage, which is particularly useful for night flying! Medicinally, Hawthorn is a heart tonic and good for sore throats, anxiety, insomnia, indigestion, hypertension, and much more.

CARDAMOM Eletarria cardamomum: Strengthening to the heart and lungs, Cardamom improves circulation, increases energy, and induces states of joy and clarity.

FENNEL Foeniculum vulgare: A charm against accidents, Fennel is well known for sweetening the breath and improving digestion. Fennel increases energy in the body because it regulates digestion and assimilation of nutrients thereby stabilizing blood sugar levels.

ELDER BERRY & FLOWER Sambucus nigra: Revered in Celtic cultures as a sacred tree, Elder brings health and happiness to the household it resides in. Elder is an excellent tonic against colds, coughs, and the ‘flu, fighting infection and inflammation.

VERVAIN Verbena officinalis: Known as the herb of enchantment, Vervain, brings visions and the tears shed by Isis for her lost love Osiris were said to be the parts of the Vervain plant. Calms the nervous system, aids in assimilation of nutrients, and an excellent remedy for all sorts of grumpiness.

APPLE FRUIT: A charm of love, long life, and clever thinking. The fruit is cleansing, lowers cholesterol, and contains vitamin A, B, and C.

Vial of SPIRULINA Arthrospira platensis: Add a dash to your brewed cup of tea to turn your potion a glowing green! Spirulina is packed full of nutrients and if you’re interested in getting your daily dose check out our Super!Rainbows!Love!Go! Herbal Powder.

 

Come In and Sit a Spell: Witch’s Delight Tea Time


wikimedia.org

October has arrived carrying on her back a cloak of fallen leaves, steadying herself with the ever cooling dark of approaching winer.  To work in the tradition of Western Herbalism is to acknowledge the history of magic associated with our green friends and the bearers of their magical names and inclinations, Witches and their kin. Bringers of healing, gatherers of storms, and potion charmers, Witches, their ancient myths and modern manifestation, continue to walk the edges of society, trembling the web of change wherever they tread.

Though, really, I’m sure they’ve already taken to the sky.

Let’s Talk About Rainbows

Teas are very important in the Worts & Cunning Apothecary household.  Our tea kettle is  an abundantly used tool in our home and tea pots and tea kettles are found on shelves about our kitchen.  And tables.  And the floor.  And in the hands of clever tea drinkers.  Yet, there is another concoction that plays as important role in the health and happiness of our household: the herbal powder.
