Celtic moon tea For matters of Fertility, love, and protection
There are thirteen teas which will accomplish just that. The measurements given are approximate, and for making one eight ounce mug
full you should use no more than a single heaping teaspoon of dry herbs placed inside a tea ball or cheesecloth strainer. All liquid measurements should be added to taste.
Allow the tea to steep at least two minutes, longer if you prefer a stronger flavour. As always, when ingesting untried substances, be sure to test for any allergic reactions first, and remember that no herbal preparation should ever be taken over the long term without consulting an expert pharmacologist or botanist.
Though very few of the recipes actually contain any part of the trees to which they are attributed, they work quite well because their ingredients rely on using herbs and juices which share magickal affinities with the properties of the tree. These properties are listed after the name of each tree so that, if you choose to, you can make substitutions based upon this knowledge. Depending upon the particular Celtic tradition you follow, the lunar year starts with either the first New Moon closest to Samhain or the one just before Yule.
