14.14 – 1.44 – 44.44 – 4444 are my favourite numbers and the ones I see most often.

Angel Number

Number 4 resonates with the vibrations and energies of hard work, security, practicality, productivity, appreciation, tradition, solid foundations, security-consciousness, self-control, loyalty, conscientiousness, high morals and ethics, traditional values, honesty, strong-willed, conservative, application, determination, the serious builder, progress, the doer, management, realistic values, stability, wholeness, unity, ability, justice, goal-orientated, system, order, organization and exactitude, honesty and integrity, endurance, mastery, responsibility, inner-wisdom, maintenance, construction, seriousness, discipline, dependability, conviction, self-discipline through work and service, your passion and drive.

Number 4 represents the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth, and the four sacred directions, North, South, East and West.

The number 4 symbolizes the principle of putting ideas into form and it signifies work and productivity. The essence of the number 4 is security, diligent work and strong foundations. It is constructive, realistic, traditional and cautious and is the number of system, order and management. This vibration is to do with energy, harmony and co-operation and it is the door to illumination and/or initiation.

When Angel Number 4 consistently appears it indicates that your angels are all around you and with you. The angels are offering you support and inner-strength to enable you to get the necessary work done. They understand that you are toiling towards your goals and aspirations and the angels ask that you call upon them for help, support, guidance and the emotions of love and security.

The repeating Angel Number 44 sequence indicates that the angels are surrounding you at this time, loving and supporting you. You have a very strong and clear connection with the angelic realm and are asked to use it to your advantage, and for the benefit of others.

The message of the 444 Angel Number sequence is that you have nothing to fear … all is as it should be, and all is well. Things that you have been working on or with will be successful. Repeating Angel Number 444 is an indication that you are being surrounded by angels who love and support you and their help is close at hand, always.

When the number sequence 4444 appears repeatedly, it is an indication that you are surrounded by your angels. The angels are at your side to reassure you of their presence, love and help. Your angels are watching out for you and supporting you in your work and day to day life. They encourage you to continue working towards your goals and aspirations as success and achievement are ahead of you. Angel Number 4444 is a message that help is nearby and all you need to do is ask for angelic assistance and guidance.

What’s your number that you see often?

Mercury retrograde takes place in Leo & Cancer & a lunar eclipse is happening in Capricorn.

Mercury retrograde

Mercury retrograde is quite common and takes place about 3 or 4 times. It stays for a couple of weeks and during this retrograde, we go through a storm and shadow period.

The shadow period begins when the planet turns direct and ends when it hits the point of the Zodiac on which the retrograde happens.

That’s the time when you feel its effect. After all, Mercury is fast and when it has to slow down, it doesn’t like it. Generally, Mercury retrogrades have two storm periods and then, it goes direct again.

Mercury retrograde takes place in Leo, first. Some drama is going to come your way during this time. Leos love to make mountains out of molehills. Plus, Leos love their fair share of attention, and they would take it somehow.

Leo rules over love, hence, affection and love are something that will be part of your life during this period. But like Leo, you will try to gain control over it.

Since Leo loves to play around, we do not quite know what and who we will fall in love with. Maybe it could be an activity we love to do, maybe we can just go out for a vacation. Leo is creative so, don’t let that creativity die out.

This Mercury retrograde commences on 7th July at 7:14 PM ET and concludes on 31st July at 11:58 PM ET. The shadow period is 23rd June – 15th August. The first storm period is 29th June – 19th July, and the second storm period is 23rd July – 7th August.

The retrograde commences at 4 degrees Leo, so the Leos born between 25th – 30th July will have its most impact. The retrograde concludes at 23 degrees Cancer, so Cancerians born between 13th to 19th July will feel the most impact of this energy.

Mercury also goes into retrograde in Cancer, on 19th July. Cancer is emotional so get ready for a huge emotional ride coming your way. Find support and comfort in your family, and don’t let the outside world influence you too much.

There is a chance that you feel a bit insecure inside. Its fine your emotions are acting out, just don’t lash out at this moment, be a bit flexible and adapt to the situation. Your family will help you out.

While the retrograde is happening, there will be a lunar eclipse as well, happening in Capricorn, on 16th July.

Mercury is going to be opposite it and emotions will be really high during this period so, it is necessary for Capricorn and Cancer to find a balance during this period.

Three aspects will be coming your way when Mercury turns retrograde. There will be a conjunction with Mars in transit on 8th July. It will bring in huge energy which is both reckless and impatient. Plus, the retrograde will make a hard aspect with the transit of Uranus in Taurus. It is an alignment which wants us to be careful and cautious.

On 21st July, Mercury will be making a conjunction with the Sun. It is an inferior one, but you get the chance to concentrate on something new for about six weeks. Mercury retrograde will also conjunct with Venus in Cancer on 24th July, so it may bring up pleasant energy for some, with a chance of accidents too. So, this time, Mercury retograde is going to be a bit crazy, so get prepared!

Gemini Season is here,these 3 Zodiac Signs don’t need to worry!

Gemini.jpg

The Season of Taurus was to chill, now it will be the time for another season, the Gemini season.

On the 21st of May, the sun will move into the territory of Gemini, putting the air sign which is centred on communication.

If we were feeling quite stir-crazy and sleepy after the Taurus season, then the energy of Gemini will be the astrological espresso shot we were waiting for. Although Taurus loves the sensory pleasures it has, Gemini will be about intellectual and mental stimulation.

The Gemini season will be an excellent time for socializing, buying digital devices, and learning new and different skills. Gemini loves seeing things from various perspectives, which means that we have to practice opening our minds.

Although this season will be highly energized, not every Zodiac sign will feel that energy. For some of them, the season of Gemini will be an excellent time to relax, without taking care of the world, which is going to serve as an excellent break from everyday stresses.

These are the three signs the season of Gemini is going to affect the least:

Aries

Although Gemini tends to bring out the gossip in people, Aries has the power to stay away from such things. When the people born under this sign take a small break from the gossip and constant social media chatter, they are going to be permitted to also meditate on their own needs.

They have to do a small cleanse from social media and limit their screen time. They are going to see that disconnecting will be the easiest possible option during the Gemini season such significant realizations about their lives may emerge when they stop focusing energy on other people.

Cancer

The people born under the sign of Cancer don’t have to actually take on the social energy of Gemini during the Gemini season. The sun is going to shine in their quarters very soon, and they will have to reserve their energies for later.

They are unwinding and chilling during May, in order to rest their bones from their big birthday party.

They have to indulge themselves with fun nights, knowing that parties are going to be still there for them, waiting for them when they finally make the decision to get out of their shells and grace this world with their presence.

Libra

For the people born under Libra, life was non-stop, and during the Gemini season, they might feel quite anxious however, they should not worry.

They should enjoy the season’s airy nature and slow themselves down. They are lost in their daydreams, taking breaks from everyday responsibilities, after the difficult world they have done recently.

They have to stay more focused because they know they have something big on their horizon; however, they should be gentle with themselves too. They will be able to make their magic occur without the need for living the whirlwind lifestyle.

Moon Magic

moon-goddess-may-25-2013-eclipse-1024x823

The Moon is the astronomical body closest to us and, therefore, has a profound influence upon us, it is very important to choose a time when the Moon is in an astrological sign which is appropriate for your working.

For example:
Aries/Action – Enthusiasm
Taurus/ Renewal – Sensuality
Gemini/Communication – Curiosity
Cancer/Emotion – Nurturing
Leo/Vitality – Determined
Virgo/Organizing – Studious
Libra/Balance – Cooperation
Scorpio/Sexual – Philosophical
Capricorn/Authority – Ambitious
Aquarius/Innovation Social
Pisces/Sensitivity – Idealistic.

Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the Moon is Waxing (from Dark to Full); when the Moon is Waning (from Full to Dark), it is time for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.

The highest energy occurs at the Full Moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magickal workings. The New Moon is the next most powerful time for Magick.

Whenever possible, follow Nature’s natural Energy Currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for
maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things ( a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.

Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.

Astrological Moon Phases:

Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion, or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head, or brain are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Taurus is the best time to work magick for love, real estate, material acquisitions, and money. Healing rituals for ailments of the throat, neck, and ears are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Gemini is the best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations, and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands, or lungs are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Leo is the best time to work magick involving authority, power over others, courage, fertility, or childbirth. Healing rituals for ailments of the upper back, spine, or heart are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Virgo is the best time to work magick involving employment, intellectual matters, health, and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Libra is the best time to work magick involving artistic work, justice, court cases, partnerships and unions, mental stimulation, and karmic, spiritual, or emotional balance. Healing rituals for ailments of the lower back or kidneys are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets, and fundamental transformations. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Sagittarius is the best time to work magick for publications, legal matters, travel, and truth. Healing rituals for ailments of the liver, thighs, or hips are also done at this time.

Moon in Capricorn is the best time to work magick for organization, ambition, recognition, career, and political matters. Healing rituals for the knees, bones, teeth, and skin are also done at this time.

Moon in Aquarius is the best time to work magick involving science, freedom, creative expression, problem-solving, extrasensory abilities, friendship, and the breaking of bad habits or unhealthy addictions. Healing rituals for ailments of the calves, ankles, or blood are also done at this time.

Moon in Pisces is the best time to work magick involving dreamwork, clairvoyance, telepathy, music, and the creative arts. Healing rituals for ailments of the feet or lymph glands are also done at this time.

Establishing Contact With Spirit

medium.jpg

One of the goals of anyone walking a spiritual path is the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and communicating with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like any sense, even trackers can see more in their environment than I ever will be able to because they have sharpened their senses and they know what to look for. This is a very complex topic and one that I have been working on developing over the years. Where you are now is not where you are ultimately going to be. The amazing thing about the third eye is that it is like a muscle; the more you work it the stronger it will become and the more it will grow. It is a very powerful part of our composition and the more we interact with it and train it, the stronger it will get.

Stages of Spiritual Contact

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them. The best way to start training your nervous system is through shocking it. Go stand in a cold breeze, shiver, get the chills, get goose bumps and when you do focus on the sensation that your skin is experiencing. Many find they are pretty numb in this world. Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

When you are at this stage of the game you really want to experiment. Unblock your third eye, stimulate it, help it to grow and awaken. Using your imagination can go a long way in helping to crack the shell of the third eye and open up your natural skills and abilities. Start by playing with your imagination and letting it grow. A lot of people experience closing of their third eye because they are told it is all fantasy. The third eye is directly connected to your imagination. Start by getting back in touch with your imagination and use it to help you when doing spiritual communication exercises and simulations.

Stage Two -Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits/entities trying to interact with you. At this stage…

~ You might hear the same song over and over again
~ You might notice things in your environment move
~ You might see shadows and orbs
~ You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
~ You may experience strange smells
~ You might develop strange tastes
~ You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
~ You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
~ You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
~ You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Practising and working with your third eye will make it stronger and help you awaken your natural abilities. Imperative you believe in yourself too. Believing you can do it is paramount. This is a concept that is true of many areas, believing you can do it will drive you and take you there. It all starts with your beliefs and ends with your desire to push yourself to achieve.

Stage Three –Awakening/ Moderate Sensations – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are having success with your daily exercises and starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself. You will….

~Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled
~You might see shadows and shapes around you
~You might hear words or phrases
~You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
~You might have moments were you feel them
~You will have dreams of your companions
~You will have lucid experiences with them
~You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them
~Your senses will begin to stabilize
~You will have routines with your companions and know how they work
~Have moments where you see them very clearly
~Have moments where you can hear them very clearly
~Have moments where you can sense them very clearly

At this stage of the game you have a good handle on yourself and you should experiment. Try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself. The exercises that you are performing push them deeper. This means that you should recreate the exercises daily and see where they take you. If you practise and push yourself your third eye will grow and you will awaken new layers of skills and abilities. The more you practise the better you become, the more committed you are to your exercises the stronger your skills will become. Find one or two exercises or a consistent routine that works for you and really push it. Try new things but stay true to your routine.

Stage Three -Strong Sensations – At this stage your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and your chakras are in a higher state of arousal. They work together to interpret the energies that are coming in through the third eye. At this stage of the game you have a pretty good handle on what you can do, but you will want to develop an exercise plan to strengthen your skills and also work with your third eye to embrace and open new skills. At this stage…

~ You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
~ You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing
~ You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed
~ You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images
~ You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them
~ You are able to feel and sense their energy
~ You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
~ You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
~ Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities
~ Able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk
~ Feel them and touch them

At this stage you can have a lot of fun! Stay on track with your routine but really experiment. Have fun with your gifts and skills and see how far you can go. Set goals for yourself and push those goals. There is a lot of fun that you can have with them and a lot that you can grow and develop. The more you push things the stronger your skills will be and the more fun you can have with them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you have acquired a third eye that is working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing. You have a really good grasp of what is going on in the spiritual world. At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them. At this stage…

~ You know who is who and can tell whose energy signature belongs to which companion
~ You can tell when you are being touched, stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
~ You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
~ You can taste them and you know how each of your companions tastes
~ You can smell them, if you have a spiritual olfactory sense you will know the aromas that your companions have
~ You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences
~ You can tell who is shifting the environment around you and why they are doing this
~ You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
~ You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
~ You can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
~ You can tell the difference between them
~ You can have physical stimulations from them
~ You can receive messages and inspirations from them and hear their stories

Beyond this the sky’s the limit, you can develop your skills and it is an infinite well of possibilities. They say the ancient Egyptians had 365 senses… we have 5 known to us and about 20 psychic ones that can be categorized, though there are much more. Be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a hell of a lot lying dormant and asleep in us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.

Do you dream of falling ?

falling-dream

 

Did you know that dreaming of falling, can be one of the most common and frightening dreams, some of you have probably experienced the feeling of being woken up suddenly after a dream where you were falling.

This feeling has a physiological explanation, as you fall asleep, your blood pressure and heart rate decrease, and this is often the cause of the falling sensation.

Sometimes these dreams have deeper meanings, falling is something that is out of our control it often leads to hurt and distress. If you dream about falling, it can suggest that you are feeling like things in your waking life are slipping from your grasp and that you are losing control of situations that are possibly causing you stress.

To get to the bottom of what it is that is causing your concerns and worries to spill over into your subconscious, it’s important to examine the different areas of your life and find out what it is that is causing you to feel overwhelmed or vulnerable, and find where you feel that unable to control what is happening to you.

Perhaps you’re going through a difficult time at work and are under a lot of pressure, or maybe you’re having trouble at home within a relationship and you are feeling increasing frustrated because things aren’t going the way you want. Maybe you’re having difficulty with finances and are worried about what is going to happen.

Any of these could be causing you to dream about falling. It’s also important to take a look how you are falling in the dream to help figure out exactly what is going on and how you feel about the situation.

If you are falling in your dream as a result of losing your balance or grip, it is a sign that the problem lies internally. You may be feeling unstable and unsure of yourself and your abilities, and lacking in confidence. Have you have recently been through a period of change that you feel like you’re not coping with. You need to find a way to ground and work on yourself and get your confidence back so that you can face the situation or challenges in your life without being afraid of failure.

If in your dream you are holding on tightly to something or somebody to try to stop yourself from falling, that is a sign that you are trying your hardest to control a situation in your waking life. You may be in a difficult situation that you are trying to fix, but are failing to do so because something’s are simply out of your grasp and there is nothing you can do about them.

Sometimes, this dream is a message that you are holding onto something that isn’t meant for you, but that you are scared to let go because you don’t know what will happen when you do. This is often linked to a relationship, people tend to stay in relationships or cling to an ex simply because they are afraid to be alone or worry they’ll never find anybody else.

For others it’s facing a big change such as a move or a new job, and you are clinging on to your old life because you’re scared of what will happen in the future.
Holding on so tightly to the past is causing you stress and pain, and this dream can be a sign that you need to let go. Though it’s scary not knowing what will come next, sometimes taking a leap of faith is whats needed.

If you were pushed in your dream, it is a sign that the feeling of losing control is due to an external issue, such as another person. If you know who pushed you, then examine what they are doing in your waking life to make you feel stressed and out of control.

The person could be your boss or a colleague who is putting pressure on you at work, or perhaps it’s a loved one who you are not getting on to well with.
This dream could be a sign that you feel like you’re being pushed into doing things you don’t want to do. You need to examine how you are made to feel in real life, and what you can do to take back the control or change the status quo.

If you don’t know the person who pushed you, or didn’t see them, it could be that you are pushing yourself too much and are feeling stressed by working too hard. Maybe it’s time to slow down and give yourself a break before you push yourself to breaking point.

Take a step back, give yourself time to breathe and evaluate what you need to do to regain your inner balance and your control, so that you can tackle the problem.

If you feel that you need guidance to help you get the root of a problem that you are currently facing or some insight about what to do next, psychic readings can often help by providing the bigger picture, the possible outcomes and point you in the right direction.

Herbal tinctures to relieve anxiety, help with pain & improve sleep.

35baff93cc500cc60c9686d9ac8ba651--marinated-olives-foodstyling

Perhaps you have heard the word tincture but are not exactly sure what it is.  A tincture is a very concentrated liquid of an herb that preserves the therapeutic properties of the herb to make it more effective. Tinctures are taken by mouth by the dropper full which usually equals 30 drops.

Tinctures are not difficult to make and are a highly valuable addition to your natural home medicine kit.

History of Herbal Tinctures.

There was a point in history where much, if not all medicine was grown in the garden. Tinctures were common and used for a wide variety of ailments and have their ancient roots in cultures all over the world. However, after the process of alcohol distillation was discovered in Europe, they became widely popular. During the Victorian period, tinctures were readily available at the corner pharmacy and were the preferred method of delivering herbal medicine.

The use of tinctures in alternative health care practices is quite common today all over the world. Also, as more and more people discover the ease with which tinctures can be prepared at home, these are becoming a popular home DIY home remedy.

Basics of Tincture Making.

No matter what type of tincture you are making, the process is relatively the same. Here is a list of the supplies you will need:

  • Clean glass jar, pint size
  • Consumable alcohol such as vodka must be 80 proof – can also use apple cider vinegar
  • Clean spoon
  • Cheesecloth
  • Small glass with a dropper
  • Herbs

Method.

  1. Fill the clean glass jar about ½ full with dried herbs (be sure not to pack the herbs down)
  2. Pour boiling water over the herbs just to get them wet (this will draw out beneficial properties of the herbs).
  3. Fill the remaining part of the jar with alcohol or apple cider vinegar and stir with a clean spoon.
  4. Place the lid on the jar and store the jar in a cool and dry place.
  5. Shake the jar daily for at least three weeks but up to six months.
  6. Strain the liquid through a  clean cheesecloth.
  7. Label your jar, so you know what is in it.
  8. Store the tincture in a clean glass jar in a cool location. If you use apple cider vinegar, store the tincture in the fridge and use within six months.

To take a tincture, it is best to put the drops directly under your tongue and avoid any liquid for fifteen minutes. This will get the herb directly into your bloodstream. You can also dilute a tincture with a little lemon or honey (this also helps to disguise the taste). You can also place a dropperful of a tincture in a cup of boiling water. This will give you an instant cup of herbal tea. Be sure to heat the water first before you add the tincture.

There are also some tinctures that are only recommended for external use. It is important that you pay attention to the best and safest method of application for tinctures.

Types of Tinctures & Their Medicinal Benefits.

Here are a few tinctures that you can make at home and the conditions that they will help.

For Anxiety.

We live in a rush-rush culture where everyone seems to be in a hurry to get somewhere or get something done. This type of environment often creates a state of chronic stress or anxiety. Anxiety can take a toll on both physical and mental health. Here are three effective tinctures that you can make at home to help relieve anxiety and promote calmness.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora): If you experience anxiety with restlessness, muscle tension or even jaw clenching, skullcap may be an option for you.

This perennial mint is helpful for people who feel like they can’t relax unless they are walking or moving around, toss and turn in bed and feel like they are ”climbing the walls.” Skullcap is especially effective as a tea or a tincture to reduce muscular tension and restlessness Take 20-40 drops of the tincture a few times a day – especially before retiring.

Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata): This herbaceous and woody vine produces a beautiful and intricate flower.  Although used historically as a sleep aid, passionflower is also an effective stress buster. For people who are exhausted all the time and in a constant state of stress, this tincture can help restore balance and energy.

The usual dosage is 20-40 drops for a 145-pound person. Add ten drops at a time if you don’t find some relief after twenty minutes.

Kava kava (Piper methysticum): This ancient herb from the Pacific Islands is well-known for its anti-anxiety properties. It does have a much more hypnotic effect than either passionflower or skullcap. The taste is very interesting and creates a numb like sensation in the mouth.

It should be noted that if you have liver issues you should not use kava kava. That being said, it is a highly effective anti-anxiety when used a few times a week.

To Relieve Pain.

Although there are hundreds of plants that contain inflammation reducing and pain fighting properties, a few really stand out. Many tinctures are just as good or better at easing pain as over-the-counter or even prescription drugs.

Here are two herbs that are particularly effective at fighting pain and reducing inflammation when taken in tincture form.

Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens): This tiny evergreen shrub is also known as teaberry, checkerberry, deerberry and boxberry and is in the heath family and closely related to cranberries, blueberries and huckleberries.  The berries of this plant are edible and the leaves and used in teas, extracts, and cordials. Pure oil of wintergreen is methyl salicylate which has the same anti-inflammatory and anti-fever properties as acetyl salicylate (or aspirin).  Native Americans used this herb for things such as rheumatoid and joint pain, headaches as well as general aches and pain.  Its antiseptic properties are also useful to battle toothaches, muscle pain, sore throats and sore mouths.

Take 6-12 drops of wintergreen tincture in water or juice, under the tongue. Take three times daily as needed and store in a cool, dark place.

Note: People who are sensitive to aspirin should not use wintergreen nor should people who are on blood thinning medication or those who suffer from acid reflux.

Arnica (Arnica Montana) – External Use Only

Arnica is a perennial plant that is found mostly in the mountainous regions of Canada, the northern United States, and Europe. Blooming in July and August, this flower produces a pretty bright yellow flower that resembles a daisy. For hundreds of years, the bloom of this plant has been used in a variety of alternative medicine applications. In Germany, it is very popular and used in over 100 drug preparations.

Some sports creams and rubs contain this flower and it is a popular natural pain killer amongst athletes and yogis. Although it is unclear how this herb is so effective, it clearly works to reduce the pain and inflammation of swelling of minor bruises, strains, and sprains.

Arnica tincture should be used externally only, and you must be very cautious not to get it in your nose, mouth or eyes. If you do, rinse out immediately with cold water.

Dilute arnica well before using on affected area.  Use several times a day to reduce pain and swelling.

To Help Beat Insomnia.

Do you suffer from insomnia? If so, you are not alone. Millions of people suffer from both acute and chronic sleep problems.  If you have problems falling asleep or wake up frequently during the night, you might want to try either of these herbal tinctures.
