These are the paddocks that surround my home, where we have gathered the wild Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) Herb.
It grows down by the river and in some other spots as well, what an absolute find!
Where you see the line of trees in the photo above, behind the cows is the river and it goes right around us in a lush semi-circle, cutting us off from everyone and making this place isolated and rather pristine.
We drink the water and we also shower and wash in this water, and it tastes good too!
So the Mugwort above in the picture was gathered back in early September and has been brewing away very nicely in a home made brew off 100% alcohol, provided by one of the Paradise People that visit the farm.
I’ve been doing lot’s of research and it seems to be an amazing herb that does so very much.
I have a large plant here in the herb garden also as well as a beautiful variegated variety at the front of the house that I picked up a couple of years ago, it has transplanted very nicely and is doing much better here than in it’s old home.
I sell plenty of dried Mugwort in my store too, many people seem to enjoy it as a legal high, or for scrying and divination work. Many customers buy the herb Damiana as well, both sell continually, here is a link to the current Mugwort supplies.
I have made up a beautiful oil a few months ago now to enhance astral work and dreaming.
It has been selling madly and has been shipped all over the world, the colour itself is so calming, its a stunning natural lushous green!
I am making an Flying Ointment very soon for dream work and astral travel in the next few days, hopefully!
But today I just wanted to let you know that the Tinctures are now ready!
It’s very rewarding and satisfying to be able to make these products I am so passionate about.
Presenting to you a natural organic wild-crafted product to aid you in your magickal work, and bending!
