Often, when I’m at events or working with clients, they ask me what’s the point of drinking loose leaf teas or incorporating them into their daily practice. My first reason is always that I know they have healing and empowering capabilities from personal experience. I’ve been working with nature, herbs, fruits and flowers for as long as I can remember.
The second reason is the one eeeveryone wants to hear: herbal healing and medicines have been used in all successful ancient societies we know of, and has centuries of proven results. All of our ancestors have used potions in the form of teas, tinctures, salves, oils, and perfumes. Chinese medicine is an ancient & modern practice that still incorporates these teachings. All plants & herbs can, and have, been used to heal many sicknesses/illnesses as well as other desired results such as sleep or focus.
Thirdly, each tea is made with love and intention. The herbs are picked carefully for their correspondences such as element, planetary associations, attachments to deities/spirits, etc to create a specially crafted “spell” with each batch
Finally, they just taste so damn good 😅 I mean, what else is there to want in a tea. You got something delicious, and healthy, for any moment in the day.
With each plant added to the blend, there are added health benefits. Whenever buying an herbal blend be sure to check the chemical reactions and uses of the herbs, or consult with a doctor if you’re truly unsure. I keep a book of all the herbs I use, including their medicinal, biological, magickal, and spiritual implications.
I hope this clears up any confusion and encourages you to go on ahead and try out some herbal teas or smokes
Energy Mists are created with a blend of herbs and intention, charged under either the Sun or Moon depending on what you need. Each bottle is personal to you, your intentions, your magick, and your desire so, however you use it, it will work out for your good in the end.
Ways to Use
I remember when I was in middle school, reading my sun sign horoscope on some twitter app (does anybody remember that 😂) and taking personality quizzes across the internet. I had an obsession for the ones about supernatural creatures and mythology. My interests in the mystical and magickal began even younger than that, and I’m sure we were all introduced in different ways.
Then one day, after abandoning the idea and returning to it in several iterations, I’m looking up from a Tumblr article about witchcraft, and I begun my path. Everyone’s look’s different, but somehow suddenly when I looked on Instagram everybody was a witch! What?!
Normally I don’t like to participate in trends or be part of crowds, but this new way of looking at the world became intoxicating and exciting. Everyday I was learning —and am still learning— new things that show me the world through even more beautiful lenses.
Each of us has found spirituality differently, whether through a religion we’ve devoted our lives to, through magick and working with spells, through science or art, we’ve all heard the call. And luckily so many of us have responded.
Seeing new leaders like Bri Luna of theHoodWitch, Jess at BehatiLife, Shaman Durek, Hadiiya Barbel, (some of my personal favorites) and more bring me hope that we’re heading into a new society of modern mystics and enlightened thinkers.
The incorporation of astrology, tarot, and witch wear into brands like DollsKill is also BADASS. Finding stylish witchy clothes has never been easier!
Being surrounded by more and more newage mystics has been the most encouraging part of my practice. I see them winning and can’t wait to show the world my specific magick while continuing to grown and learn. It is a blessing to be in a time like this.
We're all familiar with the Mercury Retrograde panic that happens a couple of time of year, and I'm sure we're all used to the broken technology and communication issues. We get it. But one thing most of the media is silent about, is when the other planets go retrograde. Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus tend to go retrograde for a few months each year. Their rotations and orbits are slower than the more personal planets' Mars, Venus, & Mercury so this is usual business for them.
And because of their relative distance, these planets affect our lives in broader ways.
Jupiter is Retrograde in Sagittarius as of April 11th, 2019 and will remain that way until five months later on August 11th, 2019. Later in this month, Saturn and Pluto will monkey-see monkey-do and go retrograde as well. And luckily, this is a perfect time for you to work your magick!
