Tea Magick. Lunar Cycle. Things that will change the life of a woman. This month there is a sacred ritual that you can try. A lunar infusion. February is a month of personal growth and planning. A time to prepare your intentions for the coming of Spring. What better way than to take some time to make a lunar infusion.
The full moon is a most sacred time every month. The magick of the moon gives us tides, and at one point in time had control over our menstrual cycles. Before we harnessed the power of electricity, and created the disruption between ourselves and nature, we were directly in sync with the lunar cycles.
Making this infusion is a wonderful way to embrace the light of the full moon (February 22, 2016) and harness the power it holds. The moon is deeply rooted in all aspects of femininity and will provide you with a sacred tonic that can be enjoyed the next day. Drinking this tea will have a deeply calming effect and can help you to rejoin nature. Always remember that herbs, plants, flowers can hold our intentions. Keep your intentions positive while making this tea!
Get- A quart or gallon sized Mason Jar, Fresh Herbs, Purified Water
Place chosen herbs in glass container and cover with purified water. Cover with unbleached cheesecloth, secure with a piece of twine and place outside under the light of the full moon to steep overnight.
You may use whatever herbs you love. Some suggestions: Lemonbalm, Rose, Basil, Calendula, Lavendar, etc.
In the morning, leaving the cheesecloth on, strain into another similar-sized container, pour and enjoy! If you live in a cooler climate, the water will be nice and cold. Note: If you live where freezing temperatures exist, do not leave outside over night. You will surely wake up to a nice ice cube… In this case leave out 2-3 hours, or in a nice window sill that catches the moonlight.
