I've introduced myself to the new magical pleasure of organic chicory root and mugwort tea.
Chicory is a masculine herbal, with magical correspondences to the Sun (space) and air (element). It's magical properties include removing all obstacles which may arise, purification and opening up locked places. It's health benefits include hormonal balance, lowering cholesterol, reducing the pulse rate, aiding in the absorption of calcium, promoting a healthy digestive tract, and lowering the risk of colon cancer.
Mugwort is a feminine herbal, with magical correspondences to Venus (space) and earth (element). It's magical properties include providing strength and protection, increasing psychic awareness, healing and promoting prophetic dreaming. It's health benefits include promoting a healthy digestive tract, anti-depressant properties, and anti-anxiety properties.
To prepare chicory root mugwort tea, simmer 1 Tbsp dried chicory root and 1/2 tsp of mugwort for every cup of water. Strain after simmering for 20 minutes.
