I work with common plants. The ones that you can consume often, find around on the side of the road, on lawns and other nearby areas. I hold great regard for entheogens, but my allies are usually quiet and unassuming. A few are listed here, today being plants that support the Womb (energetically and physically):
Red Clover: nourishes the Yin energy within, cleanses the blood (from TCM’s perspective)
Holy Basil: deeply relaxing, correlates to SMR brain waves (sensory motor rhythm is a brain wave that reduces feelings of anxiety and stress, not to mention sleeplessness)
Nettle: nourishes the whole system, rich in calcium and magnesium
I place 1 oz of dried herb (total) in 1 L of boiling water. I then just forget about it for 4-6 hours to allow for infusion to take place. Strain and consume (can reheat).
Kunzea: soothes muscle and joint aches, deeply relaxing and anti-inflammatory
Yarrow: increases ability to set healthy boundaries, hormone balancing
Ylang Ylang: alleviates mood swings, boosts libido, antispasmodic
Mugwort: heightens intuition, related to the Crone, empowering
Bay (Laurel): being one with the Cosmic Flow, easefulness, letting go of resistance, otherwise known as the ‘success herb’
Topicals are most effective in essential oil form— 5-6 drops (max) in 15ml carrier. Apply over areas of body most needing the support; also can be anointed on chakra points in ritual.
I really love these plant allies. They are teachers, mothers and grandmothers, and true friends. Would love to hear how forming relationships with these allies go for you!!
