Getting Hygge With Your Honey: Herbal Brew

We might call it kitchen witchery and our Scandinavian friends could say it is how we “get hygge,” which means to get as cozy as humanly possible. This newly trendy lifestyle tradition from the frozen north is not just for lazing about, though we greatly appreciate that aspect; it is also a very healthy way of living with sauna sessions, lots of herbal food and drink but also with your sweetheart, which is an immunity booster on its own. Tea is a mainstay if you want to be comfy and doze and we feel sure wise women and hedge witches in Northern Europe were the first on the hygge bandwagon, For an ambrosial brew you can enjoy together, add a sliver of ginger root and a pinch each of echinacea and mint to a cup of hot black tea. Add a teaspoon of honey Now relax and enjoy!

True Love Tea
Here’s a recipe to create exactly the right mood for romance. The verse at the end references the Garden of Eden before the fall. Gather the following:
  • 1 ounce dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1 ounce dried and pulverized rose hips
  • 1⁄2 ounce dried lemon balm
  • 1⁄2 ounce dried mint (ideally peppermint)
  • 1⁄2 ounce dried meadowsweet
 
Stir ingredients together in a clockwise motion. Store in a dark, lidded jar.

To make tea, add two teaspoons of herbs for each cup of boiled water. Steep for five minutes while visualizing your heart’s desire, and before straining, say aloud:

Herbal brew of love's emotion,
with my wish I fortify.
When two people share this potion
their love shall intensify
as in the Olde Garden of Love.

ConvivialiTea

Jasmine tea is one of the most delightful concoctions, and it can create an aura of bliss and conviviality. This tea is commonly found in most grocery stores, but organic and whole food shops always offer superior quality. Brew a cup of jasmine tea and let it cool. Add two parts lemonade and drink the mixture with a close friend on a Friday, Venus’s day, which rules our relationships. Jasmine is a vine, which traditionally represented the intertwining of people. Sharing this tea with a friend will enhance your bond.

This tea is also a tonic that you can indulge in alone. I recommend brewing a batch every Monday, or moon day, to ensure that each week will be filled with joy. As the tea steeps, pray:

On this day in this new week,
I call upon the spirit to guide joy to my door.
Such gladness as I receive, so shall I give.
By this moon on this day,
I call upon Ishtar and Celene, ladies fair,
to show me the best way to live.
For this, I am grateful.

Tea for Two: Passion Potion

A tea of mandrake root, when mixed with the sweat of a lover, can be sprinkled around the bedroom to heighten ecstasy if accompanied by this chant:

Brew of mandrake, brew of desire,
enchant this bed with passion’s fire.
Cast a spell of ecstasy.
This is my will. 
So mote it be.
