Vision Tea

Postby dualhands » Tue Jul 07, 2015 12:12 am

WARNING
Some might be sensitive to this tea.
I could describe it as...
clarity yet trance like. a distant feeling right in front of your face type deal.
Like your dipping the tip of your nose into the other side.

motor skills will still be there!



1 table spoon damiana leaf
1 tablespoon catnip
1 teaspoon st. johns wort
1 teaspoon peppermint leaf
1 teaspoon hops flowers
1 teaspoon mugwort
1 teaspoon yarrow flower
1 teaspoon lemon balm


its quite the handful. But totally worth it.
great for rituals, or spells where trance and concentration are needed.
works well for scrying.

Do you know what properties are in each plant that help with the trance effect? I'm fimilular with the calming properties of the catnip and lemon balm and the hops. But don't believe I've heard of damiana leaf, mugwart, or yarrow flower.
I love all kinda of plants and have grown many and enjoy leaning about them.
Personally I enjoy teas that give you the kick to the otherside so I'm interested to hear whats in this :) thanks.

Sounds interesting. I would add that anyone on a prescription medication, especially an anti depressant should check for any possible drug interactions. If an anti depressant is being used, the St. John's Wort should be omitted.

The combination of Damiana and catnip gives the true trance like effect. Its nothing that going to make you freak out or anything. It's an enjoyable state of mind.

Awesome thanks! I'll have to look into each of them and see what chemicals are giving me said trance haha. I like to know exactly what I'm taking before I ingest it.
Plants are the most amazing beings, so selfless and full of such amazing substances hehe.

I suppose not knowing how to make tea should be classified as a gross misdemeanor (which is an arrestable offense). Or at least I kind of hope it would be...

I just had this fantastic mental image of stealing my cat's catnip toy and letting it brew with the damiana tea. I don't think she would appreciate that too much though... Plus it would probably get some cat hair in it.

I think it's time for some coffee...

When I lived in England, I worked in a bar and once an old gentleman ordered tea, saying : "This is hot water, poured over a tea bag" (He probably thought since I am a foreigner, I may have never heard of tea :) ).
I like this recipe, dual, will definitely try it some time.

Hah, I could really easily see that happening where I used to live out there. :P

Thanks for that tip, Snow. I'll try it with the adjustments to accommodate my medications. Still very excited to try it out though :)

Interesting. I'll have to try and scrounge up some ingredients for this.

If you're strapped for ingredient, the catnip and damiana and peppermint leaf are the base in my opinion.

But mixing them all together is extremely good for spells requiring concentration1

Where would I find damiana? I've never heard of that before!

I had to do EBay, as well. I don't have access to any supplies where I live in this small town .
