Herbs of the Full Moon
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.
