crescent cavern

for dreaming, underworld/trance work, protection, sleep. alcohol-based tincture containing mugwort, violet leaf and flower, catnip, yarrow, and california poppy. comes in a two ounce dropper bottle. 

in medieval scotland, a rhyme went something like:

if they’d drink nettles in march, and eat mugwort in may
so many fine maidens
wouldn’t go to the clay.

the legend illustrates a long-held belief that mugwort contains life-prolonging tonic qualities. it’s bitter, aromatic, and aphrodisiac, with mild narcotic effects. it comes from the genus artemesia, named after artemis, goddess of the wilderness. mugwort was once worn in midsummer for protection, and burned to release misfortune. traditionally, mugwort is also associated with the underworld and divination. a tea of mugwort leaves is used for scrying.

mugwort is an incredibly strong dreaming tool, enhancing vividness of dreams and dream recall. it can be used for clearer intuitive “sight” and protection/clearing. this tincture also includes the sedative and tension-relieving herbs california poppy and catnip, so it could be used to welcome lucid dreams.

yarrow also has a long history of mystical and protective use; the stalks were used for divining the I Ching, and it was commonly used in amulets and love charms in the 16th - 18th centuries, particularly around midsummer. the mystic hildegard von bingen recommended yarrow as an astringent to assist with inflammation after bouts of crying. it’s a calmative plant, promoting clarity and perception, making it a helpful guide for entering the subconscious realm.

violets, harbingers of spring, are some of the oldest and most humble medicines that exist. named after the princess io from greek mythos, poets have often associated violets with love, death, and innocence. it’s a watery flower, the scent of which is thought to bring about sleep and gentle, lush dreams. mugwort, violet, catnip, and yarrow are all venusian plants, while poppy is ruled by the moon, making for a cooling, sense-driven blend perfect for nighttime. this is a strong-tasting medicine if taken alone. try 10-15 drops in a glass of water or tea before bed.

dove harp star

for light, love, grief processing, warmth. blend of a rose tincture, lemon balm and violet oxymel, and flower essences of calendula, sweet pea, and borage. contains alcohol, rose water, apple cider vinegar, and honey. this combination of flowers and delicate leaves is a gesture of kindness to your whole system. it comes in a pretty dark red one ounce dropper bottle.

fossilized remains of roses have been found in oregon dating back 35 million years. rose has been revered since ancient times. they’ve left their mark on folklore and mythology in nearly every region of the world. there are many stories about the origin of roses—that they were born of the tears of mohammad, that they mark the birth of venus, that rose thorns appeared after the coming of adam and eve. roses have been connected to love magic and divination, death, and funerary rituals, and rose thorns are thought to be powerful protectors. the flower also make soft but mighty medicine. in this formula, i have added rose as a cooling anti-inflammatory, as heart support, and as a protective ally against depression and feelings of isolation.

lemon balm is a gentle tension reliever. lemon balm was also found to be a useful aphrodisiac in a scientific study based on traditional persian medicine; a sweet combination when paired with venusian, sense-heightening violet flowers. violets were once given as prizes to french troubadour poets, and their soft presence can be heart-lifting. resilient calendula essence offers compassion, warmth, and receptivity, while the essence of cool, purple-blue borage grants courage, soothing foggy discouragement and stagnant grief.

i made the sweet pea essence in this blend while alone in a small field of bright wildflowers on a july day. it is a welcoming, grounding, earthy, and kind presence that brings a strong sense of place to this formula.

this blend tastes mostly like apple cider vinegar, with a hint of sweet raw honey. price is for a 1 oz bottle. select the tier that you are able to afford at this time. in the notes section at checkout, let me know your desired tincture charm: cat, wolf, fairy, or angel.
