There are a variety of tools I use to enhance my connection to source when I’m perceiving.
Below are the herbs I use to improve psychic power and induce visions.
The most important thing you can do is prepare the herb/s properly. Therefore, I’m a little sceptical of some readymade brews, as not all the ingredients work if you prepare them the same way. (I pay less attention to the smoking blends as, while an ingredient may not be at its best being smoked, you don’t tend to ruin another ingredient like you would if you boiled a blend for 15 minutes to activate the Mugwort while simultaneously over extracting the Yarrow flowers for example.)
The herbs that follow are the ones I always have in my cabinet, as I can reliably grow or source them and more importantly, they consistently work for me. And they are all legal. *
Dandelion (Root) – Dried, roasted, ground and brewed like coffee can be ingested or the vapours inhaled
Yarrow (Flowers) – infused for tea
Mugwort (Leaves) – Burned/Smoked or Boiled vigorously for 10-15 minutes before being ingested
Damiana (Leaf) – Burned/Smoked or infused for tea
Coltsfoot (Leave or Root) – Burned/Smoked
Wormwood (Leaf) – Smoked *Wormwood oil is used in making Absinthe
Elecampane (Root) – Burned/Smoked
Wild Lettuce (Leaf or Stem) – Burned/Smoked
Dittany of Crete (Leaf)– Burned/Smoked
Ladies Mantle (Leaf) – Pollen or dried and powdered roots are added to any magical workings when you want to boost the yin factor
I usually have a mull for smoking both as a joint and/or burned over charcoal depending on my location and I prepare my brew as follows. In two small pots…
- Pot 1 ’Coffee’ – brew dried, roasted and ground Dandelion root like you would Turkish coffee
- Pot 2 ‘Tea’ – boil some Mugwort vigorously for 10-15 minutes. Strain into teapot/jug/large mug containing yarrow flowers and damiana leaf and leave to infuse/cool down.
- Then combine in a cup the ‘coffee & tea’ before tuning in.
*I have deliberately left out a range of plants and herbs that are considered strongly psychedelic or illegal as it is a much more complex discussion.
