Making moon tea is a lot like making sun tea, only it imbues different properties. With the moon being a feminine energy, this is a method to use if you're looking to balance feminine hormones, inspire self-love, or to harness the Goddess's nurturing attributes. Today I decided to focus on emotional well-being, because who couldn't use a boost?

Between everyday stress and random junk life throws at us, it's not uncommon for us to need a little pick-me-up now and then in the emotional realm. And who else better to make us feel safe and loved than the Moon Goddess herself?

Here's what to do:

1. Gather your herbs
2. Place them in a clear glass jar
3. Fill jar with gently warmed (NOT boiling or steaming) water 
4. Loosely cover with lid or cheesecloth 
5. Leave outside in the moonlight
6. In the morning, strain herbs from tea (perfect for composting!)
7. Enjoy a glass while reflecting on how awesome you are.

Easy peasey, right? Below are the herbs I selected. I like to use what I have on hand and encourage you to do the same. No need to make life more complicated, especially if you're making a tea to help you relax! If you're looking for a great, comprehensive reference for magickal herb properties and meanings, I recommend Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs

A hefty pinch of each:
 
Magickal properties: Love and happiness
Medicinal properties: analgesic, sedative, moves chi (energy), calms nerves
 
Magickal properties: love and self-love
Medicinal properties: calms nerves, eases digestion, soothes anxiety, stress, nightmares
 
Magickal properties: Promotes self-care
Medicinal properties: Encourages convalescence, clears heat, cleanses heavy metal toxicity
 
Because herbs are so beautifully versatile and comprehensive, I only listed a few applicable medicinal properties of each. Herbal medicine is invaluable and wonderfully vast. Even after years of study, I'm still in awe of how all of our needs can be met through herbs, even modern and unnatural needs, like herbs to combat the side effects of chemotherapy. The more I explore nature, the more I come to realize we truly are taken care of by this beautiful planet. It's humbling and breathtaking and truly miraculous. 
 
...I'm just going to enjoy that thought for a moment.

Okay, back to tea! If you don't have the herbs above, see what speaks to you from your pantry. Once you've selected three or four, look them up and see what your intuition is telling you. Kind of fun, hm?! Happy Full Moon, everyone!

I think I'll try this the next full moon.

Nice. Thank you Sunkat.

Kat, I meant to ask, what herb is 'Self-Heal?'

thank you.

I got to make this Moon Tea Sunkat for August 27 full moon

I will use it for the Goddesses nurturing attributes.

I grow catnip for my cat but never used it as a tea. Well, I got the catnip for sure.

I have fresh chamomile... but not this 'Self Heal'. I will have to read some on what this Prunella vulgaris L.isI have a lot of spearmint, pepermint, and sweet mint s some will be added to the tea too.

Prunella vulgaris is a natural substance long used in herbal medicine. Sometimes referred to as "self-heal" or "heal-all," this herb is widely available in supplement form. Touted as a natural remedy for a variety of health conditions, prunella vulgaris contains a number of anti-inflammatory compounds and vitamins (including vitamin C).
