A quick note to explain the picture not corresponding with the post. This was originally done last year when I was vegetarian. I naturally used honey. When I made it again, since I am now Vegan I used agave. I forgot to take a new picture and so used the original image
As a witch I drew to the conclusion a long time ago that we can underestimate our skills and knowledge as witches very often and today just proved my point.
For a few days now I have been working on an ideal tea for a psychic readings. Not only did it need to produce the intended vibrations to aid me, it also had to taste nice…well I think it needs too! Lol
All I had was lists up to now. So I put it to bed for a few days. Today I had desire for a lovely brew. Did I go to the kitchen and boil the kettle grabbing a sachet of my favourite tea? No! Instead I suddenly found myself grabbing scissors. Slipping on shoes. And wondering to our herb planters outside, cutting a few choice leaves and flowers. Then head upstairs and selected some spices from my herb box!
I washed my herbs, left to drain and then ground the spices together. I took the herbs and roughly tore them up and added to the pestle and mortar, lightly grinding them together to start the release of the plant oils. I divided the mixture between two bags to allow it to move freely in the hot water. I allowed 5 minutes for it to brew!
Lavender, sage, peppermint, star anise, liquorice, and a few black peppercorns along with agave nector.
Without even trying I’d created the base for the tea I was looking for. A tea that would instil peace and calm. Would remove negativity and purify. Give protection. As well as strengthening psychic powers and aid divination!
And I have to say it’s a lovely and delicate tea. Though don’t leave the bag in for longer than five minutes. I added a little agave nector to see what it was like as I don’t normally add it. For me I would omit the agave and add orange peel, as agave really doesn’t add anything to the brew. The use of it is a personal choice.
Within a few minutes of drinking it I felt a lightness and calm. I then promptly did the card reading 😊
So the moral of the long tail…don’t doubt your skills and knowledge as a witch. Go with the flow….
