This is awesome, @Krissie117! :star_struck: I’m pretty familiar with lemon balm (aka melissa), hibiscus, lavender, and peppermint, but I didn’t know much about damiana.

I did a little research in case anyone else wants to learn a new herb today too! :blush:

:herb: Damiana is an herb that grows in the southern parts of North America, Central America, South America, and the Carribean. It has a wide variety of uses in traditional herbal medicine and has been used to treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, and others. It’s primary traditional use has been as a low-grade aphrodisiac.

Thank you for looking up Damiana! I wasn’t sure what that was, but didn’t have time to look it up or find a substitute for it yesterday. So I wouldn’t think that here it’s hard to find. I hope someone tries it and has great results with it!

Lost my Tea Ball, must get another. I will definitely try this. I’m surprised chamomile and mugwart aren’t involved here. Damiana might make for some interesting dreams.

Oh yes! A tea ball is a great idea over the others. I would try this tea but I rarely dream or even remember anything because of my sleep medicine. Otherwise, I’m an insomniac. Let me know if you try it & how it goes!

You read my mind. I was about to say the same thing. Mugwort is a must so here’s a spell from the book Herbal Magick by Gerina Dunwich :tea:

Oh wow! Thank you for the addition @Francisco!

@brad1 and @Francisco I honestly don’t know why Mugwort wasn’t included, but I suppose you could add it in if you wanted to do so. I have never done anything with Mugwort in a tea! Let me know how it goes!
