Reading, Reading, Reading. I found myself knee deep in what others have written about Nettles. I’ve seen a few Nettles pop up in the garden. So happy to see them. I’ve been wanting to be stung, and haven’t. I went to find my stash of dried Nettles and they are missing! Am I suppossed to go harvest them fresh? I am thinking I want to eat them…such a waste to have to compost the herb after infusion.
To be honest I haven’t been drinking the Nettles infusion as often as I had planned! I made one brew with a few different herbs added to the Nettles right before my moon cycle – that was nice. A pint/day seems like not enough once I start sipping. There’s my inspiration I suppose. It is different from the Basil experiment – when a pimple shows up you want to grab something to put on it. The Tulsi I knew instantly made me feel better. The Nettles are more long term – a tonic. It’s learning a new routine.
My reading has gotten to the point where the herb is saying,
‘now drink me eat me gather me from the fields and love me!’
I will go to her this weekend in the meadow.
Maybe strip down and go for a roll……
Thought: Nettle’s anti-histamine actions are letting the different body parts function again. An inspiration to become functional again. Maybe this is its same doctrine on the body system, nourishing it completely and allowing for proper operation. Becoming awakened.
What’s up witch you?
